W98 PC fails to locate DHCP IP Address

By Rick Berry ·
Windows 98 PC with 3COM905C NIC fails to resolve assigned DHCP IP address at boot. Running WINIPCFG Renew resolves correct IP address. It appears to select the default stack "169.265.etc...." at boot. Is there a registry setting that can be deleted that identifies this "bogus" IP address that appears to be prevending DCHP from assigning the PCs assigned network TCP/IP address.

from microsoft's site:

You can disable automatic private IP addressing (but not DHCP) by editing the registry. You disable automatic private IP addressing but not DHCP by adding the

IPAutoconfigurationEnabled

registry entry with a value ofDWORD 0x0 in the following registry location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \System \CurrentControlSet \Services \VxD \DHCP

Use the Registry Editor to add this entry, then shut down and restart the computer.
