Re: Vista fails to get IP from router

Yes, it's the right link. Follow the instructions to start an elevated command prompt then type in those commands. They will disable some of the advanced networking features in Vista. These advanced features are not compatible with some NICs, switches, routers, etc. It's a troubleshooting step to eliminate this being the source of the problem.

I downloaded and tried the latest driver but to no avail.
I visited the linked website but could not find any relevant info. I wonder if it is the correct link.

I'd make sure you have the latest driver for your NIC then try the following with a static IP.
