Ron,

Thank you very much for all your help. I also find it's better when windows deals with wireless it's more straight forward. I will have a look at the msconfig and services and let you know what happens. I always get a bit wary about unchecking things incase something goes wrong and your unable to re-boot.

I also did a check by telephoning my isp on my internet connection it did pick up a fault but i have to wait and get my line checked before they will send a new router.

Thanks again Ron

Got it down to 3mins 30 from boot to fully logged in and that's including entering a password, I think thats ok. Disabled a couple of other start up option Quick time and arc software.

Still only connecting wirelessly with static ip even after disabling bt help and toshiba wireless controller.

Attached is tcp.zip.

Download and Save it. Rightclick on it and ExtractAll. You should see tcp.reg, right click on tcp.reg and MERGE. Allow it to merge into the registry.

Go back into the wireless setup and set it to get the IP automatically. Reboot and see if it want to connect wirelessly now.

This just adds the DWORD ArpRetryCount to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters

Supposedly that can make it work sometimes with Vista.

If it doesn't help then:
Copy the next line:

reg query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip /s > \junk.txt

Start, All Programs, Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and Run as Administrator, Continue.

Right click and Paste or Edit then Paste and the line should appear. Hit Enter.

type with an Enter after the line:

notepad  \junk.txt

Copy and paste the text from notepad into a reply.

I'm having a little trouble deciding which is which. Can you run ipconfig and tell me what IP address is assigned to the wireless if any?


Let's reset the TCPIP:

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

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:

netsh  int  ipv4  reset  reset.log

netsh  int  ipv6  reset  reset2.log

notepad  reset.log

Copy and paste the text from notepad.

Reboot

If it still doesn't work then do this again:

Copy the next line:

reg query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip /s > \junk.txt

Start, All Programs, Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and Run as Administrator, Continue.

Right click and Paste or Edit then Paste and the line should appear. Hit Enter.

type with an Enter after the line:

notepad  \junk.txt

What make and model PC is this?

Hi Ron,


Did the netsh command as asked but when I typed in the last command to open the reset log in notepad I got an error cannot be located warning.

I've rebooted but wireless still the same.

I've attached the junk.txt file

What happens when you:


Wait until the Wireless has connected (or thinks it is) and then

Start, All Programs, Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and Run as Administrator, Continue. Type with an Enter after each line:


ipconfig  /release

ipconfig  /renew

Hi Guys

Ok this is strange, Booted up the laptop this morning and it connected ok with wireless set to automatic ip and ethernet disconnected. Windows then did a update and then rebooted. Then it wouldn't connect. Been looking at different sites today to try and find a solution. By all account this type of thing appears to be commen with vista. Had to go out, so shut down pc, came back in rebooted and hey presto it's connected again with automatic ip set and ethernet disconnected. Have decided to leave this up for a little while and see what happens.

I may try rebooting a couple of times to see if it still connects ok each time.

Totally baffled !!!!

Another wee update, just been back into device manager and a new device is listed Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-interface. It has a code 10 error and says it cannot start. Had a quick look and it appears to be the driver not upto date. But tried updating and it advises the best driver for the device is already installed. The device showas under the Network adapters tab.

It would appear that after about 1 and a half to 2 hours my internet lose connection and my network status changes to unidentified public network with local access only.

Ment to mention earlier that the ipconfig /renew, returns an error while renewing wireless network connection saying it cannot reach my dhcp server.

"Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface" is something to do with ipv6 which no one really uses. MS is trying to get ready for the next version of IP (IPv4 is running out of addresses) and this is part of that process. I think it lets an IPv6 packet be squeezed into IP4 and sent off to another IPv6 capable device. Nothing you really need to worry about but I did find some instructions on what to do to make the error go away:

In the start menu search bar type in REGEDIT to open the registry editor. Navigate through the following:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\SERVICES\TCPIP6\PARAMETERS. In the right pane, right click Disabled Components and select edit. Set the DWord value to 0."

Reboot.


This from:
http://answers.micro...63-c1f442fdf925

Which has a couple of other suggestions if that doesn't work.


The reason the DHCP sometimes works with Vista is supposed to be because of the timing. DHCP should not try to work until after the Wireless link is up and connected. If it starts too early there is no link so it will fail and switch over to the fake IP address starting with 169. It might work a bit more reliably if you set the DHCP Client service to Automatic (Delayed Start). Right click on Computer and select Manage then Services and Applications then Services. Find the DHCP Client and right click and select Properties then change the Startup Type to Automatic (Delayed Start). OK.

(will take a reboot to have any effect.)

The changing over time is probably a driver error so I would look on the PC maker's website and download the latest driver for the wireless. See if that helps. (I assume this Vista has the latest updates?) You can also go into the Device Manager and try to update the wireless driver tho that never seems to work for me. Also right click on
the wireless driver and uninstall then reboot and let it reinstall it. Sometimes that will fix things.

Hi Guys.

This is not letting me change the setting to automatic with delay. I keep getting error message "The delayed auto-start flag could not be set error 87: The parameter is incorrect.

Yes vista has the latest updates.

In network and sharing Centre It is constently checking the icon is spinning aS to the network it is sitting as identifying and public the only reason I am getting connected is because of the static ip.

I have been on the manufacturers web site and downloaded the latest drivers theey are advertising.

Guess I gave you a bad instruction. Doesn't work on mine either. Not sure why.

Try Uninstalling the wireless adapter with Device Manager and rebooting.
