Wired connection's Access marked "Local Only"
1. How could I make it to become "Public and Internet"?
It seems that Vi$ta is trying to guess the type
connection by searching for a router or something.

2. When I configured the wired connection to use static ip,
static DNS and static gateway, the routing was not working.
Pinging www.google.com failed. The DNS was working,
just that the packets did NOT take the default gateway route.

The NIC may not get IP from the DHCP server. Do you get 169.254.x.x? Also
check if there are a new drive for the NIC and firmware for the router. This
search result may help too.

I connected the Vi$ta to a Linux server (with internet connection) using
cross-over Ethernet cable. The Linux server runs a DHCP server. Here is
the dhcpd.conf of the DHCP daemon:

option domain-name "donkeyware.org";
option domain-name-servers 192.168.1.2;
# option netbios-name-servers 192.168.1.2;
max-lease-time 86400;
default-lease-time 43200;
ddns-update-style ad-hoc;
ddns-update-style none;

The setup worked flawlessly when I was using WinXP. With Vi$ta, it
seemed that it tried to auto-sense the type of connection but got it all
wrong when the connection was not Dial-up/VPN/PPPOE.

My set up need something like XP's "Connect to Internet directly".

Oh.. I have relocated the PC. Can't do it now.

Anyway, is it possible to tell Vi$ta not to interpret the type of
connection from the IP of the TCP/IP IPV4 properties, and just follow
the default gateway when routing packets?

Out of curiosity, is Micro$oft going to certify routers in order for
them to work with future Micro$oft operating systems?

That was not what WinXP was doing....
