FIX: DHCP allocator takes 3 seconds to respond on a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based device

Introduction

This article describes an issue in which the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) allocator takes 3 seconds to respond to incoming DHCP packets on a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based device. An update is available to resolve this issue. Before you install this update, you must have all previously issued updates for this product installed.

Symptoms

You run the ipconfig /release and the ipconfig /renew commands on a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based device to test the DHCP allocator. If the device is connected to a private network, the DHCP allocator takes 3 seconds to respond to the DHCP DISCOVER and DHCP REQUEST packets.

Note You expect to immediately receive the IP address that is assigned by DHCP.
