    Unable to retrieve Netmask, Broadcast and Gateway information

    Hello

    I'm using an almost identical code as shown under http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...ad.php?t=54226 to get IP, Netmask, Broadcast, Gateway, DNS 1 and DNS 2 of my current WLAN connection.

    It's interesting that I never get information about Netmask (iNetMask), Broadcast (iBrdAddr) and Gateway (iDefGate). The values are always 00:00:00:00. All other information is available and correct.

    I'm 100% sure that it is not a problem of my code as I experience the same problem using the freeware application "ifinfo" (http://tinyhack.com/freewarelist/s60.../03/09/ifinfo/). The values are set to 00:00:00:00, too.

    Even more I guess it's a firmware problem of my Nokia N95 (someone reported the same issue on his Nokia E61i). Reason: On the Carbide C++ emulator, information about Netmask, Broadcast and Gateway is available and works as expected using the same code!

    Do you know that issue and can provide a workaround?

    Thank you for your help!

    My N95 has firmware version 20.0.015... looks as if it is a bug.

    Does someone have a workaround?
