    Hey guys been trying out numerous things to fix my connection problems but to no avail. I don't think it is a router issue since the other guys on their laptops are connecting just fine via the wireless router. Below is the ipconfig /all report. Oh I connect just fine on my home wireless server, but not here at our work network.

    Yes I found that and did as it said, but will change the 1 back to a 0. I haven't been able to connect to anything but the network. This is driving me nuts since a couple of the other guys who are connecting are also running Vista.

    Failed to mention the network is secured, running through an Imac and Apple router. The security comes up as WPA2-Personal.

    The IP 169.254.x.x gives the clue. It might be the winsock problem in your system and not the router. Try google 169.254, there are several different cases and workaround.

    And does your wireless adapter support WPA2? If so, use your wireless utility to delete the profile for the work network and try to reconnect. Make sure you get the passphrase exactly correct--spacing and case are important.

    Tried a few different things and still nothing. It keeps giving the same problem. I do have a question regarding the winsock fixer thing, does it work with Vista as well as XP?

    No. But the following does.

    (From a JohnWill post)

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista.

    Start, Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    Bumping this up. The problem is still there, and I will post a new ipconfig /all later.

    Disable the DHCP Broadcast Flag:

    Link: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233

    1. Go to Start and type in "regedit" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
    2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{GUID}
    In this registry path, click the (GUID) subkey that corresponds to the network adapter that is connected to the network.
    3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) Value.
    4. In the New Value #1 box, type DhcpConnDisableBcastFlagToggle, and then press ENTER.
    5. Right-click DhcpConnDisableBcastFlagToggle, and then click Modify.
    6. In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
    7. Close Registry Editor.

    NOTE: You should do this for each and every GUID subkey.

    Ok I did as that said, and here is the new ipconfig /all. I do have a question regarding the enable dword, should I set those to 0? Disregard that question it says you can set it in the windows help page.
