    Vista Network Connectivity Issues

    Hi all,

    Hopefully you can help me. It's a network issue that I just can't seem to figure out. I'll try and get all the information down that I can - just to note. I am running this machine from home at the moment.

    The machine is a Panasonic AjaxC30 using an Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapater and a SiS191 Ethernet Controller.

    I can connect to the wireless and I get the "connected to Internet" symbol in the bottom right hand side of the screen but have no internet at all.

    I can ping the default gateway, DNS is configured from the router which is the same IP address as the default gateway. DHCP is enabled. I have removed any Anti-Virus/Firewalls that might be stopping a connection temporarily. I can tracert to Google successfully. I can even ping Google and I do get replies. Internet is working wirelessly for the machine that I am on at the moment. The machine name definitely isn't on use in my home network already.

    I've tried installing Firefox and still nothing.

    I have uninstalled and re-installed the wireless adapter. OH and it's doing this with the wired connection too!

    The machine is running Microsoft Vista SP1 by the looks of things.



    Any ideas? I think i've put everything down.


    Many thanks

    Jack

    Sorry forgot to put that the proxy server isn't configured.

    I had issues like that with a laptop running Vista and needed to update the drivers to allow it to run with the latest encryption. Try it with no encryption on router and see if it connects and runs OK. Spent ages on it till I found that out. Maybe try getting it to find the latest driver or you may have to manually find one.

    This sounds to me like a firewall issue. If you've uninstalled all firewalls, make sure you reset the Windows Firewall to defaults.

    I would also recommend you install Vista Service Pack 2 and install IE9 on there too.
