When I do a "Windows Help and Support Center" "Network Scan" on my XP SP3 machine, it tests a very long list of various things. All are marked "OK" except:
> DHCPServer 192.168.0.1 (FAILED) > Pinging 192.168.0.1, request failed
My router, and my Network Property tab are both set to 192.168.1.1, NOT 192.168.0.1.
Other machines on my network correctly check 192.168.1.1, and report OK, when I do the same Network Scan.
Where would I set (fix) that value? Why does Windows think it needs to scan/check the WRONG address? (Thus failing.)
UPDATE: I did find these 8 wrong values in my registry: > DhcpDefaultGateWay 192.168.0.1 > DhcpIPAddress 192.168.0.2 (.2 ????) > DhcpNameServer 192.168.0.1 > DhcpServer 192.168.0.1 > DhcpDefaultGateWay 192.168.0.1 > DhcpIPAddress 192.168.0.2 (.2 ????) > DhcpNameServer 192.168.0.1 > DhcpServer 192.168.0.1
Notice the "suggested DhcpIpAddress fix" isn't even ".1" anyway.
Sounds like things are pretty messed up for me.
