This article describes an update that adds support to configure the default gateway or router IP address that is sent by the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) allocator to its clients for Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3.
After this hotfix is installed, you can use the new DhcpDefaultGatewayInfo value in the registry to configure how to send default gateway information to DHCP clients on a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based device that enables DHCP allocator. The DhcpDefaultGatewayInfo value is located under the following registry subkey:
If the DhcpDefaultGatewayInfo value is set to a valid IP address, this value is sent to DHCP clients as the default gateway information.
If the DhcpDefaultGatewayInfo value is set to 0.0.0.0, the default gateway information is not sent to DHCP clients.
If the DhcpDefaultGatewayInfo value is either invalid or not present, the behavior is not changed, and the IP address of the adapter is sent to DHCP clients as the default gateway information.
