When I try to connect, there is a pause of about 10 seconds and the Vista machine reports that it cannot complete the connection with a message that conveys nothing about why it failed. The strange part is that I have a...

Gateway static IP address disappears everytime I restart by Gizzo
Now you see it now you don't. Here's the scenario. When I reboot everytime, the gateway static IP address disappears. I have to manually enter it again. Everytime! I'm using Vista 32 Business SP2 on a Thinkpad X60s notebook. Why does this happen and what's the solution?
