    Gimpy damnfool OS...mumble..

    Vista is doing my head in..we have a corporate wifi network (just installed), and while XP is more than happy to connect and use it, Vista will connect (WEP based), yet classifies it as "local only", and therefore won't work.

    We only have a few vista clients, but it'd be nice to have them working..so...has anyone come across this and found an answer?

    I don't have that much diddling experience with Vista..I did have it on VM at home, but after it munched itself twice I gave it up as a bad job.

    Well, soon he'll be able to get crap broadband support AND cancel his satelite tv subscription in one phone call.
