Vista Laptop Doesn't Auto Assign IP address

Posted: 01-07-2009, 09:43 AM
We have 3 Vista machines connected to our system. One PC and two laptops, one
of the laptops doesn't seem to pick up a IP address when it is set to
dynamic. We have to set it a static IP address, but the other PC and laptop
work fine. Any ideas?

Do you use windows as DHCP server? You may want to check if there is new
driver for the NIC.
