TCP/IP protocol not works issue on Realtek 8169/8168/8101E inbox driver

Q. Realtek inbox driver for Windows Vista RTM has software compatibility issue when TCP/IP protcol driver
   tries to bind the LAN miniport driver.
   If not cable connected to the network card first, the DHCP client could not bind to TCP/IP protocol stack
   after system boot.
   'ipconfig /all' does not show the adapter, too.  Device manager could show the adapter.

   1. Connect the network cable to adapter first 
   2. Power on the machine and system boots
   3. The TCP/IP protocol could successfully bind to the LAN driver now and the network works.
   4. You can use 'ipconfig /all' to check the IP address.
