  1. vista router issues!

    I'm using a thompson ST v585v6 router which has been working with my PC
    running Vista 64. However, have now just bought a laptop running vista 32
    home premium and I can connect it via wireless and cable but get no internet
    access. Have searched high and low for answer but to no avail - would
    really appreciate some help. The laptop in question is a samsung Q70. What
    is throwing me is the fact the x64 works ok.

    check the ip address on the laptop, vista has a habit of not accepting ip
    via dhcp from the router. if the ip of the laptop starts 168. (or really
    anything but 192.) then setup tcp/ip manually including dns servers on the
    laptop.
