Same here.. but on a 17.3" Toshiba laptop., 3GB, Dual core AMD, 32
bit vista prem home..
Everything was working patches, reboots, etc. until I installed SP2
then all manually config'd wired network access was gone.. IP..
subnet mask.. default route... poof ... (ipconfig showed an
unresolved DHCP addr with a class B subnet mask)
And my problem was a bit more severe.
Vista would ignored any and all the IPv4 manual IP settings main
page for that 10/100/Ge network wired adapter (it would retain them
from reboot to reboot, but the settings had no effect.) Vista just
ignored the manual settings and reverted to an unresolved DHCP addr
Then I got an idea.. disable DHCP and leave the rest of main page
Manual IP settings blank, and enter them in Advanced page. That
worked for the IPv4 addr and subnet mask.. (P.S. Those settings
carried back into the main page, since only one manual IP addr was
assigned) and Vista continued to use those settings from reboot to
But, I still loose the gateway setting after each reboot.. (looks like
this a reoccuring theme on the usenet group.. I.E. gateway 0.0.0.0
PS. Subsequent patch download and updated both wireless and enet
adapter, with no effect.
Looks like someone @M$ failed to test their new SP2 code before
inflicting it upon the real world..
