no internet using vista
I finally installed vista on dual boot. I have a wireless network at home using a netgear router. On my desktop I use the WG111v1.2 usb adapter. It works fine on my XP side. On the Vista side, it installed fine, but I had to use the XP drivers. After I ran through the netgear wizard, it said its connected to the router. Now I dont have dhcp on my router. I manually assign ip addresses to all my machines. When I assigned a new internal ip and set gateway to ip of the router, it didnt connect. I tried to ping the router, and it said destination unreachable. Anybody know whats going on?? I have setup everything else but w/o internet, its worthless, as I cant get updates or download the Directx 10 demos I wanted to try out in the first place.

I tried connecting using wire but that also could not connect tot he router.

Re: no internet using vista
The funny thing is, i tried almost the same thing with my freinds computer and he's using a USB adapter and he cant connect to the internet. However im running on wireless and i dont have a problem. Its not usb. Sorry to hear about this it seems were having the same problem. Im not sure about how to fix it. If i find anything I'll reply good luck!

Re: no internet using vista
Did you add a wireless connection in Vista (designate the SSID and any encryption you might be using)?
