Thread: Test your router/IGD for Vista Compatibility

  1. Re: Test your router/IGD for Vista Compatibility

    a couple of things -
    when you power down the Vista computer completely with the hardwired
    Intel Nic, does the XP tablet keep it's wired connection ok with
    WPA2?

    the wired computer - is it still set to static or DHCP?
    can you set to DHCP and unbind IPv6 ?
    can you disable UPnP on the Linksys as a test?

    I can't comment on the computer you are bringing to your daughter -
    too many unknowns.

    What do you mean about seeing other wireless networks that aren't
    really there?

    DHCP, I TRIED STATIC AND I COULDN'T ACCESS THE ROUTER, TRIED DISABLING IPV6
    SAME PROBLEM
    UPNP IS DISABLED

    A "DEFAULT" OPEN SHOWS UP THEN AFTER A WHILE A MAC ADDRESS SECURED SHOWS UP.
    IT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN THE VISTA COMPUTER IS ON. IT HAPPENED BEFORE SO I
    THOUGHT IT WAS A NEIGHBOR, BUT IT'S NEVER THERE WHEN THE VIST COMPUTER IS
    OFF. IT HAPPENED WITH THE DLINK ROUTER TOO

  8. Re: Test your router/IGD for Vista Compatibility

    I was thinking along those lines. The drivers I am using are out of the box
    (6/2006) Vista drivers. There is a newer Intel pro-set driver package
    (12/06) I am thinking about installing. What exactly does this mean?
    "Adapters based on the Intel(R) 82542, 82573V/E, 82562V, 82562GT and 82566
    controllers
    do not support Jumbo Frames. These correspond to the following product
    names:
    Intel(R) PRO/1000 PM Network Connection
    The Intel PRO/1000 PL Network Connection supports jumbo frames in Microsoft*
    Windows* operating systems only when Intel(R) PROSet for Windows Device
    Manager is installed"

  11. Re: Test your router/IGD for Vista Compatibility

    I'd try one more thing. Delete the Intel NIC from device manager and
    shutdown. Power up and it should be redetected. See if this makes
    any difference. I don't have much hope, but it's worth a try.

    Also, do you by chance have a different brand NIC you could try (and
    if yes, disable the Intel one).

  13. Re: Test your router/IGD for Vista Compatibility

    OK Now I know I am going crazy. I disconnected the cable from the router to
    the nic, then booted the machine, and the wireless dropped. So I disabled
    the onboard nic in the bios, booted the computer and the wireless dropped. I
    have another nic to try, as well as a usb-ethernet adapter, but if the Vista
    machine kills the wireless with NO connection to the router whatsoever, I am
    STUMPED.

    P.S. The message I sent from Arizona under another profile revealed that I
    had NO problems setting up my daughter's Vista machine EVEN THOUGH her
    machine says her wireless USB adapter is not supported. Also my tablet ran
    fine all weekend on opne wireless with or without her computer running.

  15. Re: Test your router/IGD for Vista Compatibility

    BINGO! After years of playing with computers, even I forget Standard
    Operating Procedure. Thank you, Barb, for sticking with me on this one. Set
    to channel 11 cured it.

    When I receive my Vista upgrade for the tablet, I'll post progress on your
    blog. It should be interesting running 64 bit on the Asus R1F.
    Thanks again,
    Tony
