I have recently upgraded to Windows Vista and I was trying to setup my Vista
laptop so that it will connect to my existing wireless network. However it
always comes back with the default windows IP address and not actually
getting an IP address from the DHCP server. I am sure that the router is
working fine since my other pc with XP is connecting with no problem.
Windows is set to obtain IP address automatically and DHCP server on the
router is enabled. Currently using an Edimax AR-7064g+ router with built in
wireless adaptor on my laptop. All the drivers and firmwares is the latest.
If you have any ideas, please reply to this post
