Hi, guys


I am new with Windows Vista and i tried to connect with LAN. first I put the IP-Adress, subnet, default getway and DNS in the IPV4. then connected. after 2 days the connectivity is limited. when i see the LAN status, the IPV4 is " internet" and IPV6 is " limited" says that " reset the Network adapter," LAN"

You probably aren't really using IPV6. Are you having any real problems other than the errors?

AFAIK the only program that uses IPv6 is the new Microsoft Meeting Space. Do you use that?

If not, try disabling IPv6 in your network connections - that should prevent the error from repeating.

2 other things to try are:
1) Disable the IP Helper service in services.msc
2) Disable the DHCP Broadcast flag IAW (in accordance with) this Microsoft article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233

Hi, Sir


this is exactly the solution is because" WINDOWS VISTA CAN NOT OBTAIN AN IP-ADRESS FROM SERTAIN ROUTERS AND THE RUOTER DOES NOT SUPPORT THE DHCP BROADCAST FLAG"
and my problem is solved because i followed the steps that you gave me how to disable the DHCP broadcast.




THANK YOU VERY MUCH :huh:
GOD BLESS YOU

Sir,

I did all what You suggested (disabled IPv6, disabled the DHCP Broadcast flag) but I still have the same problem: after few minutes I lose my Internet connection and I have only local connection. Please help :huh: What else I can do??? With my XP all is OK, no problems with Internet connection. (Sorry for my rough English)

Pixie13 - are you the same person as mocca? If so, there is more to check than just these few things.

If you are not the same person, then I'd suggest that you start your own Topic. Each connectivity problem is different, with different symptoms and different causes. Please read the pinned topic at the top of this forum (about reading before you post).
