    I am having the exact same issue. Have followed this thread and others.
    Have spent hours on the phone with Microsoft Technical Support.

    Has there been any resolution?

    I never put my computer into sleep mode.

    I am running Vista 32-bit
    I have an Nvidia nForce Networking Controller
    I have a Linksys WRTP54G Wireless VOIP Router w/ the latest firmware.
    I have another XP Pro, and two MACs that all use this router for DHCP
    and they are having no problem whatsoever

    The Vista PC however will not get an IP Address (gets the 169.#.#.#
    address)

    If I force a static IP address (192.168.150.120),
    Gateway(192.168.150.1) and DNS (192.168.150.1,24.25.5.150,24.25.5.149)
    and leave the Metric set to 'Automatic' I get 'Local Only' and the bogus
    gateway of 0.0.0.0

    If I set the Metric to 9999 (leaving everything else as listed above) I
    can actually get 'Local and Internet' but I can't really get out to the
    internet.

    Is the NVidia firewall on and active?

    Yes, but I've tried turning it off and it doesn't matter.

  8. You may need to clean the routing table first. This link may give more
    details.

    Vista: local only with 0.0.0.0 default gateway
    3. You may want to clean the routing table. To do that, use "route print"
    command to check if the Default Gateway is 0.0.0.0....

    Barb, I ran this on one of the less troublesome machines. It usually
    responds to a reboot and has only had the "local only" problem a couple of
    times in the last month. Anyhow, I ran that command and rebooted and it was
    fine after that. I'm hoping to get my hands on the most consistently
    problematic machine tomorrow to see if it will fix that one as well.

    Thanks,

    Barb, it did not work. I've tried it on three machines. It always worked to
    correct the problem after the required reboot. However, all three have
    reverted to the problem at different intervals.

    Any other ideas?

    the only other thing I can think of is something I found specific to
    the Intel 3945 wireless

    Barb, I didn't look at the link yet, but we're experiencing the problem with
    our LAN adapters, not wireless. Any idea where I should go next? Do you
    know if Microsoft is trying to correct this (meaning ALL of the local only
    problems)?

    don't know what MS is including in Vista SP1, but one question -
    have you removed Sonic Wall from the mix as a test?

    We have updated our Sonicwall firewall, but not removed it. But the problem
    is getting the 0.0.0.0 entered on the local machines as the default gateway,
    so it appears to be a Vista issue, possibly a Windows 2003-Vista DHCP issue.
    Since it almost always happens after a hibernation, I don't think there is
    any re-communication to the DHCP servers anyhow, leading me to think it is
    exclusively a Vista problem.

    I don't foresee a time when I'll have access to any of the problematic
    machines and be here on a weekend, when it would be safer to take down the
    firewall. I could make the time, but again, with it being a Vista issue, I
    don't see the point.

    Barb, thanks for your help. I've seen hundreds, possibly thousands, of
    forum posts regarding the "local only" problem, each containing multiple
    users. And despite people saying Microsoft engineers browse these forums
    (and others), I have not seen one response from an actual engineer or anyone
    at Microsoft. This really concerns me. I'm just hoping with how pervasive
    this problem is, and that it is clearly a Vista problem, that it is addressed
    in SP1. Do you know of a way for us normal folk to find out what is being
    included in SP1? Or to even find out what's being worked on?

    as you know, the only 0.0.0.0 documented issue I'm aware of is
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/933872/en-us

    have you considered opening a support ticket with Microsoft on this
    issue? that really is the "official" support channel.

    Typically, a service pack is an accumulation of hot fixes that have
    already been made available.
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...f6-2eaa-4aaa-8b3b-2e199db4a97d&displaylang=en
    is the best I can offer.

    To open a call with Microsoft, I believe that will cost me about $300
    correct? If not, I'd be happy to.

    I had thought that you might have a support agreement - you
    mentioned some 80 computers. But you can try personal support "for
    one computer"

    ::I have had the same issue on Vista Home Premium (32bit) where it would
    have a default gateway of 0.0.0.0 whenever it resumed from sleep mode.
    The problem occurred after a change of internet router. The router has
    the latest firmware and there are several other Vista machines connected
    to it, all without the problem. The only thing that was different with
    this machine is that is was not connecting directly to the router but
    via a switch. I tried the MS patch that is mentioned in this thread but
    that informed me that it was not appropriate for my machine!::
    ::The problem was resolved after installing SP1. I guess the needed
    patch was included in the service patch.::
    ::Since then I have has the same problem on a Windows Server 2008
    Standard (x64) machine, again connected to the router via switch. The
    problem on this machine has been resolved by running 'route delete
    0.0.0.0' and then rebooting.::
