Yeah, the notebook doenst find a dhcp server, that means that the
Vista business doesnt assign any IP adress to the notebook, but why?
Cause sometimes it works...
Well the basic network functions work with a static IP, but not the
ICS gateway. So i cant use the internet connection of my PC from my
laptop. -> main problem
And yeah, WEP isnt safe in any way, but the DLink USB adapter isnt
capable of WPA in ad hoc mode, thats why i have to use WEP. Its
already a relatively expensive adapter with N standard and i wont buy
a new one.
Thanks for your reply!
