Vista can not obtain an IP address
  

I want to connect to a Windows Vista network and a router {configured as DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) }. However, the router or other device does not support the DHCP BROADCAST and Vista refuses to connect to the network.

What to do ?

Re: Vista can not obtain an IP address

It will require action on the register of Windows Vista. Attention because any error in procedure could cause a crash of Windows Vista. We therefore advise you very strongly to save your registry before intervening in it. To back up your registry you can follow the tutorial of Mary on Vista-XP:


Once the registry saved, follow the steps below:
  • Press the "Windows" and press together the "R" in the fields of the window that appears type "regedit" and click OK.
  • Go to the registry subkey and then click the following: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ Tcpip \ Parameters \ Interfaces \ (GUID)"
  • Arrived here several registry subkeys are present, click the subkey (GUID) that matches the network adapter connected to the network.
  • In the Edit menu click on "New and click DWORD Value 32 bits.
  • In the field: "New Value # 1" type "DhcpConnEnableBcastFlagToggle" and press Enter.
  • Right-click your mouse on "DhcpConnEnableBcastFlagToggle" and click the "Edit".
  • In the "Value data" type "1" then click "OK".
  • Close the Registry Editor and restart Windows Vista.
