0

Description

Determines whether Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Media Sense events are logged.

By default, DHCP records an event in the System Log in Event Viewer when network media is connected or disconnected. The log provides a record that can be used when troubleshooting network problems.

Media Sense provides a mechanism for network adapters to notify the protocol stack when network media is connected or disconnected. The protocol stack can then update its network configuration parameters. Media Sense is especially useful on portable computers, which are commonly disconnected from one network and connected to a different one.

Value

Meaning

0

Media Sense events are logged.

1

Media Sense events are not logged.

Note Image Note

Because 10b2 or coaxial (RG-58) Ethernet cable is not connection-based media, Media Sense does not detect connection and disconnection events on this type of network cable.

NetBIOS Enhanced User Interface (NetBEUI) and Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) do not recognize Media Sense events.

Windows 2000 does not add this entry to the registry. You can add it by editing the registry or by using a program that edits the registry.
