    I am currently testing wifi compatibility on Windows Vista.
    To connect our Wifi adapter to the network we use our own
    application and supplicant. Our driver blocks windows from
    changineg the driver state and we have our own OIDs to associate
    and authenticate. We use IPHelper to catch IP configuration.

    This all works fine on XP but does not work on Vista.

    On Vista this works great for the radio, and my wifi interface become
    "Enabled" in Network Connection Panel, but DHCP never succeed to give me
    an IP configuration.
    On the command line, by typing "ipconfig", I can see my wifi interface
    hanging in media state "Media unauthenticated". Well sometimes if the
    ap is WEP only it works after a long
    delay but if the the security is WPA or WPA2 we never get an IP
    address. It also seems that if I set a static IP on the interface
    then IpHelper never reports the static IP.

    Any thoughts?
