By default, this problem does not exist in Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows XP Service Pack 3 or Windows 7 because the BROADCAST flag is disabled (DhcpConnEnableBcastFlagToggle = 0).
Value name: DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag
Value type: REG_DWORD
Value data: 0
- A value of 0 disables the registry entry. You can use this value to prevent Windows Vista from using the DHCP BROADCAST flag. After you configure the registry entry, Windows Vista never uses the DHCP BROADCAST flag.
- This issue does not occur in Windows 7. By default, DhcpConnEnableBcastFlagToggle is set to 1.
