Vista Reset Network Adapter

I realise that this problem was answered in a different thread, but I would like to have the part about the IP address changing where it says 192.168.x 1 My Vista Premuim boots up unable to connect to internet, when I click "Diagnose and Repair" it tells me to "Reset Network Adapter" when this is done it repairs the problem. Please tell me how I fix this problem, which happens every time.

Here try this , it will reset your TCP/IP stack and the Winsock ..

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Press enter after each command , hopefully this might do the trick . Also , try removing your wireless adapter from Device manager and reboot the system , Vista will reload the drivers .

Forgot to say , you need to be logged as Admin to do this , go to start/programs/accessories/command prompt...right click and select " run as administrator "

Thanks Ashley, but it is still the same, I feel that it is a fault with Vista and they might have a patch one day
