SYMPTOMS

You successfully establish a dial-up connection in Windows Vista to another computer or to the Internet. However, the IP address of the default gateway for the connection is 0.0.0.0. For example, when you run the ipconfig command at the command prompt, the default gateway appears as 0.0.0.0.

You do not experience this behavior in Microsoft Windows XP or in other earlier versions of the Windows operating system.
