On most platforms the network adapter by default uses a DHCP-query to connect to the local network. This sometimes makes it difficult to discover the current IP address of the device. For that reason, latest WindowsCE kernels feature a broadcast driver that announces some device information in the local network. To catch these information there now is a small utility available - "F&S Device Spy".

Each device can be equiped with an unique device name and some additional device Information. These values are stored in the registry under:
The broadcast driver only is included in the WindowsCE Kernels of the NetDCU9/10/11, PicoMOD3 and PicoCOM1.
There was an error in the description above. The name of the key for device information is called "DeviceInfo" instead of "DeviceInformation" - corrected.
