If u can’t use static ip with Vista in  your Network and your Router Doesn’t Support Broadcasting Flag

Then vista will try to connect via DHCP but private ip gets assigned and local connectivity .


1)Run/Search > Type Regedit [press Enter]

2)Go to

Here GUID is the id of your device

3)Set DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag 0

4)Make a new DWORD (32-bit )
DhcpConnDisableBcastFlagToggle 1
