    I have just purchased a Sony Vaio laptop which has an Atheros AR928x wireless card and am trying to connect with a Network Everywhere Wireless-B 2.4Ghz broadband router.

    My son's Vista software connects with no problem...but I get the same error message that windows did not receive any response from the wireless router or access point.

    I can connect with other wireless networks but not my own. Any help is appreciated

To resolve this issue, disable the DHCP BROADCAST flag in Windows Vista. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Click Start
Collapse this image Expand this image
Start button
, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

Collapse this image Expand this image
User Account Control permission
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{GUID}
In this registry path, click the (GUID) subkey that corresponds to the network adapter that is connected to the network.
3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) Value.
4. In the New Value #1 box, type DhcpConnEnableBcastFlagToggle, and then press ENTER.
5. Right-click DhcpConnEnableBcastFlagToggle, and then click Modify.
6. In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
7. Close Registry Editor.
8. restart your computer

By setting this registry key to 1, Windows Vista will first try to obtain an IP address by using the BROADCAST flag in DHCP Discover packets. If that fails, it will try to obtain an IP address without using the BROADCAST flag in DHCP Discover packets.

If you want to apply security on your router, so that no one can use your network, then please follow the steps:

1. Open the web browser and type the default gateway and enter the password.
2. Click Wireless and then Wireless Security.
3. Select WPA Personal from the drop down of Security mode.
4.WPA Algorithm should be TKIP
5.Type any ten digit number as the Shared key and note it down and click save settings.

Turn the router off and switch it on. Now whenever you try to connect your wireless devices use the shared key as the security key.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

Lose Internet connection on wireless network


Go to the router configuration and change the options so you could use both of them, there is an option says only one type of connection or both of them, change it to both, and everything will be fine.

I have got two computers pc and vista i setup router zyxel p-660hw-t1 v2 on pc evrything is ok but vista doesnt see network what shall i do ?


First thing you need to do is go to the mfg web site and download the latest drivers for your router. Windows Vista drivers are still primitave.
Make sure both computers are set in networking for sharing. Check these out and get back to me. If that doesn't work, get back to me.
