Ip address, regedit problem

Posted: 02-03-2009, 03:50 AM
On 85% of the time I turn the computer on I do not get connected to my ISP. I
have Linksys cable modem and a Linksys router. My second computer on the
router (an XP) has no problem login on to the system. What I have to do
(VISTA machine) each time is do a “Diagnose and repair”. It quickly wants to
get a new IP address and after I “continue” in about 45 seconds everything is
working fine.
Doing some research I found what looks like the problem that I have. I have
done regedit once before so felt I could at least take a look and see if the
article was correct. The help article I found was. Article ID:928233 “Windows
Vista cannot obtain an IP address from certain routers or from certain
non-Microsoft DHCP servers”
I got to the end portion of step 2
“2. • Locate and then click the following registry subkey
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{GUID}
In this registry path, click the (GUID) subkey that corresponds to the
network adapter that is connected to the network.”
Here is what I found and what I think is the problem. I never get to {GUID}.
Instead of {GUID} I get two lines of what looks like garbage
{3a539854-6a70-11db-887c-806e6fe6963},
and {BE55FD8E-E60F-48EB-ABE5-63232B0C1F72}
How or where do I get the right values to replace the garbage (assuming that
is my problem)?

That "garbage" you are looking at is a GUID (Globally Unique IDentifier).
Click on one of them and you'll see a number of subkeys in the right-hand
pane. It's one of those, depending on the rest of your instructions, that
you'll need to operate on.

the garbage is a GUID (Global User Identification)

{3a539854-6a70-11db-887c-806e6fe6963} == {GUID}

Thanks for the info, that helps. But the first GUID has one line "ab
(DEFAULT) REG_SZ (value not set)", and the second GUID has the same first
line and then 27 other items. So now I am lost as what to do for the end of
step 2, and steps 3,4,5 and 6 of article 928233. Any help would be
appreciated.

{3a539854-6a70-11db-887c-806e6fe6963} == {GUID}? The second item (another
GUID?) has the same first line and then 27 other items. So now I am lost as
what to do for the end of step 2, and steps 3,4,5 and 6 of article 928233.
Any help would be appreciated.
