Problem with DHCP and WiFi on Windows XP
Get IP but not DNS/Gateway.

 10:43 am on Mar 29, 2005 (gmt 0)


I have an Asus Notebook which I use when I'm on business travel. Recently, it crashed due to a faulty RAM module, so I had the recover the whole installation. Since then, WiFi doesn't work anymore. Well, it partly DOES work, because I get an IP address and a netmask, but I neither get a default gateway nor a nameserver assigned. Which means that I can't connect anywhere...

I tested it with 3 available hotspots so far, and none worked. Any help or suggestions?

are you pulling different ip addys at the different hot spots or is it always the same one? Did you do a clean reinstall or a repair of your OS? What OS is it, if XP is it SP1 or 2?

Didn't look too closely at the IP's so I'm not sure. No, no clean reinstall but recovery from Recovery-CD. SP2 - reapplied after recovery.

I've had some experience with recovery CDs not having the latest drivers for the hardware. You should go look at the card's manufacturer site for new drivers. I'd bet that would fix it.
