  2. Wi-Fi Connectivity Issues

    Hello:

    I posted this is the Vista General group 12 day's ago with no replys. Maybe
    someone here can help.

    Previous Post Below.

    Trying to help someone with Vista Home Premium that is having issues getting
    on the internet with Wi-Fi.

    I tried connecting this machine to more than one known working router with a
    highspeed connection in more than one network.

    When the computer is plugged into either router with a cat 5 cable the
    computer pulls an IP from the router and can browse the internet without any
    issues at all.

    The trouble comes when trying to connect to the internet through the Wi-Fi.
    The computer is connecting to the router because it is pulling an IP address
    from the router for the Wi-Fi adapter. The Wi-Fi adapter says it is
    connected which it is. That can be seen by logging into the router and
    seeing the computer in question and matching it's mac address up to the
    Wi-Fi card in the computer.

    However even though the computer has connected to the Wi-Fi it can not
    browse the internet. Other computers on the same system can but this one can
    not.

    We have tried everything from disabling and even removing all 3rd party
    internet security and firewalls.

    The person had all personal files and important information backed up so we
    even went as far as reformating and reinstalling the OS.

    Still we can connect to the router send and recieve packets but can not
    communicate over the internet.

    I have been working at this for hours and just can not figure out what the
    heck is going on.

    I will pass on any information that comes from this post to the owner of the
    computer for them to try out. At this point I am ready to suggest pulling
    Vista out of this machine and install XP or even Linux just to make this
    thing useable.

    From what I am told the machine has never be able to get onto a Wi-Fi system
    from day one.

    I have suggested to the owner to go to the store tomorrow and purchase a
    third party Wi-Fi card and see if it would make a working connection.

    Thanks for any advice that comes from this post.

  6. Re: Wi-Fi Connectivity Issues

    Finally back again,

    Yes more than one network adapter was tried on more than one network.

    I will pass along the links provided by Jack and see what happens.

    This problem has stumped no less than 5 different people that have never had
    wireless issues before. If all else fails the owner of the machine is
    sending it back to the factory to let them work it out.

    Will let you know if the owner has any sucess after he reads and trys the
    links in the post. The man works a lot so not sure when I will find out his
    success or failure.

    Thanks
