I just bought a new HP a6550f from Circuit City. It has Vista Premium SP1. For a few days, the my internet was up. About 2 days later, it completely shut down on me. The computer is hooked up to a Netgear WNR834B Wireless-N Router which is wired to the Siemens 4200 modem.
I called Windstream and was on for about an hour with one of their techies. I myself am pretty technologically up to speed, I'm working in the Cisco Academy right now. Between me, the tech guy at Windstream, and one of my friends, we couldn't figure it out.
I can ping my router and my modem, yet I can't access either through IE7.
The twist? I kept my old XP machine. I plugged everything in, and it worked fine. I can access the internet, play my games. Anything I really feel like.
The computer's onboard ethernet controller is fine because it was working just the other day, let alone the fact that I can still ping the router and such.
They're sending me a new modem, but I'm kind of curious if it's necessary at all. I'm really beginning to think it's just Vista (considering it's the 64 bit version).

There are a number of bugs with Vista and the later versions of Office (like 2007). Try running "setup.exe" from the Office disk and use great caution before installing SP1 for Office 2007 since the SP1 auto-install can cause problems with Vista.
