Re: Vista SP1 Networking issues



Hi
IPconfig output states: "Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected"
I.e. Your computer's Network card might be the problem, or it is Ok but it does not get a valid IP from the Router.
First check the setting of the Network on the computer, look at the Device Manger and make sure that you have valid installation of the Network card.
This page describe the process of checking the Network system for Win XP, it is similar for Vista only that the locations of the menus is in different places, Follow the principle but adjust it for Vista's menu system. http://www.ezlan.net/debug.html
In addition, your Router is rather old and it's DHCP might not be fully compatible with Vista.

Yeah the modem causing this is highly unlikely, I just mentioned the entire
process. I did a ipconfig with only the wireless connection enable. Here are
the results:
