Hello Experts!,

I'm running Windows XP SP2 on acer laptop with Intel 3945ABG Wireless adaptor.
This adaptor has DHCP enabled and an alternatie static IP configuration for my house and work configurations.

The problem i want to fix is the looooooooong time i have to wait at startup, above 60 seconds, while the computer takes or not the IP address on a not-dhcp server enviroment.

If fact, at house i got the IP in a few miliseconds and the system boots properly, but at work, where THER IS NOT DHCP SERVER and configuration should be taken static/manual, boot takes above 60 seconds.

I have seen there are some post regarding the solution, but as im not a premiere user, i cannot see the answers.

Can anyone tell me how to change this client DHCP timeout issue?
