Windows 7: Microsoft Virtual WiFi: DHCP Problems

Microsoft Virtual WiFi: DHCP Problems

Hi there (again),

I'm having an issue with the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Adapter. Since I had to uninstall Connectify (it prevented my computer from entering standby or hibernation), I started to use the Virtual WiFi Function manually (netsh wlan start hostednetwork). It works absolutely wonderful with Windows 7 clients, it works well with Windows XP clients (slightly slower, but I guess that's normal), but it fails for my iPhone and other Apple mobile devices. I have no idea why, but I know that Connectify had the same issue and fixed it with version 2.0.
The iPhone connects to the network (showing a checkmark next to the network's name), but doesn't show the WiFi-Icon, and I cannot access the internet or local ressources.
This seems to be a DHCP problem, as manually setting an IP address, setting the Subnet to 255.255.255.0, and entering my laptop's IP-address as the Router and DNS server solves the problem (at least sometimes, it's not that reliable). But as I'm a perfectionist (and want others to be able to use my network), I really would like to see DHCP working there.

Is there anything that I could do to fix this problem?

Thank you so much for your help!


With kind regards,
Felix Freiberger

Hm. Why do I get my good ideas always after posting here? After switching the iPhone to BootP mode, it works like a charm.

(Stupid brain, why didn't you see this button 5 minutes earlier?)
