Configuring GTwifi on Windows Vista

NOTE: We recommend upgrading from Vista to Windows 7. Vista has many issues and is not as well supported as Windows 7.

DHCP Issues

If you are having issues obtaining an IP address, there is a known issue with Windows Vista regarding DHCP. You can find more information on this problem HERE.
