"DHCP broadcast flag fix" is applied to ALL guids. But I would duplicate web pages if I told why.
I doubt that's it. The most common reason I find is outright hardware failures, expired or soon to expire Norton (why they wipe the owner connectivity out is likely so they learn how good they can shake down the owners?) Sorry I couldn't resist another swipe at Symantec.
Other issues can be hidden SSID (router settings), not secured with WPA or the router needs a boot.
Very randomly, my sony laptop stopped connecting to my home network. I'm running Windows Vista Business 32-bit edition SP1.
It says that I am connected to my local network but not to the internet and comes up saying "(Unidentified network)". I looked at the IP thinking that it might be the problem so changed it to a static IP as opposed to a dynamic one. This obviously didnt work.
I have the latest frimware on my router and have reset it in an attempt to get my laptop to reconect but this again falied.
If i leave the IP as automatic it gives me 169.x.x.x which i understand is a private IP. My router runs on 192.168.x.x.
Also on automatic, the IPv6 is very odd and gives very weird codes.
I have tried the DHCP broadcast flag fix, but it didnt work due to not being able to find my network adaptors guid.
Any idea of how to restore my connection?
Thanks in advance
