Hardon is living in La-La Land, you know ... the place where people
stick their fingers in their ears and sing "La La" to drown out the
Here's my 2¢: My Nephew's Vista PC (now "upgraded" to XP/Fedora dual
boot) couldn't obtain an IP address via DHCP ... at all ... ever. We
tried absolutely every possible trick in the (missing) book, but the
damned thing just wouldn't connect. I had to manually specify the IP
and gateway/DNS, otherwise it would show the much feared and dreaded
"limited connectivity" warning, from which there never seems to be a
recovery route. Turning off the firewall didn't help, rebooting four
times in a row didn't help, even waving a rubber chicken didn't help
(yes, I actually own one of those ... don't ask). Solution? Well the
inevitable solution to /all/ Windows problems is Wipe'N'Reinstall. I
did the former (wipe) but not the latter, hence obtaining a somewhat
more /permanent/ solution.
Hardon may now resume his "La La" song.
