Every time I restart my SBS2008 I have to go to the network properties of IP4 and manually re-enter the ip of the gateway which has disappered???

Can anyone tell me how to fix this? :-)

Neither the hotfix from Microsoft or the hack in the registry solved my problem!

Ok then :-)
It was not to diss you but I need this problem solved!
If I put the additional comments in the comment fields noone sees this (execpt you maybe)

Here are the comments:

I have tried to run the hotfix from Microsoft.
Manually check the registry for emty gateway addresses and checked DNS Interfaces for wrong addresses.
NOTHING has helped!

BUT! - if I go to the Device Manager - show hidden devices I see a LOT of hidden network adapters with strange names:
ISATAP. {2C2F40FC-CC8B-449E-B8FF-FDF82C72246D}
RAS Async Adapter
WAN miniport (IP)
+ 8 more named WAN miniport something.

Should I delete all of this and start all over again?

Are you fully patched?

Can you post a screen shot of the registry setting (as is posted in the blog entry?)

I'm 95% certain your problem is resolved by the information I provided, assuming it's followed properly.  I have not heard of this happening for any other reason so even if I am the only one seeing it, it's likely no one else could suggest anything different.

After double checking I found out that the DefaultGateway key was missing from the registry.
Re-creating this with the correct value solved the problem
