DHCP problem

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by terry jenkins, Jan 26, 2005.

  1. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite Pro running Windows XP. I had it running as
    'Administrator' with no other users set up and all was running well. I
    decided to add a couple of user accounts to the system which I did but now
    it takes 6 or 7 minutes to boot up.
    It's broken my wireless link to my Linksys access point, it keeps 'looking
    for a connection' and although it's showing the access point as being
    connected (the name shows up and signal strength is exellent) but I can't
    call up the access point config page and can't access the internet.

    I've tried troubleshooting with Msconfig and the culprit seems to be the
    'DHCP service' when I uncheck it's box boot times are back to under a
    minute, if I turn it back on then boot times increase to about 7 minutes.

    How can I fix this?
