No ip on windows 98 SE with wifi, always have to renew ip

Posted on 2004-11-10

The problem I'm having is that when my pc boots I always get the 169... ip adres.
Seems normal since my wifi connection is established after windows is fully booted. So to get an internet connection I always have to renew my Ip after wifi is up and running. The wifi exists of a Linksys AP and USB nic ( also tried PCI).
Is there some kind of program that automatically renews the ip after the wifi connection is up and running?
By the way I'm using a cable modem to get on the net.

    how about a simple batch file, that you double click on after windows boots
    open a blank notepad file
    and type
    ipconfig /renew
    save this file as ip.bat
    (save it on your desktop)
    then once windows has fully loaded, just double click on it
