Re: how to connect vista to internet
Oh, then there is a problem with the PC. I have Vista Home Premium and I connect to a network made by XP and majority of them are XP, for Internet. All the new versions of Windows are made to be compatible fully with the old ones.

Do you have wireless in the house? If not that's your problem.
If you look at the bottom right near the time you will see a little staircase that represents the wireless. if you click on it and select the option to Connect to A Network a window will open up showing you all the wireless networks within range. You want to select your network (the one in your house) and click Connect. If it requires a password or key, then provide it. That's all there is to it.
If you don't see the staircase at the bottom right near the time, more than likely you don't have the wireless turned on. Look on both sides of the laptop and at the front for a switch that controls the wireless.
did you reinstalled windows? usually that message appear when u don-t have the drivers installed for your network cards. So right click my computer go proprieties ---> device manager ----> and there check if u have network installed.
I don not think there is a problem with your laptop. It connects to your network when you use the Ethernet cable, because the wired network is yours. As to the 4 networks to which you are trying to connect with the wireless, they must be secured as they should be. If you want to access them (and why would you since you have your own Internet connection), you will have to ask authorization from the networks owners (your neighbors). If they agree, they will provide you with all the information you require to log on and share their bandwidth.
Hi there. I am working on the assumption that you use Vista but XP is just about the same. This method will also hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings. Ok, what i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage"
and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network
adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "un-install" the
device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless
card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system
tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again
All right let's call your Vista computer A and your Xp computer B. First you have to bring the two computers into LAN. If you already did this, please skip the next eight steps.
Step 1: In Vista, before doing this you should enable Sharing and Discovery. You can do that by going to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center. Under the section ‘Sharing and Discovery, enable Network discovery, File Sharing, Public folder sharing and others if you want to. (See picture below)
Step 2: If your LAN card that is connecting to another computer is installed, it will be shown under Control Panel -> Network Connections.
Step 3: Right click that local area connection and click properties.
Step 4: Under the tab ‘Networking’, click the properties Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
Step 5: Click the radio button to ‘Use the following IP’ and give an IP address (For example, IP address: 192.168.0.1 and Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0)
Step 6: Don’t give any other information, Click Ok and close everything.
Step 7: In computer B, which is the XP, make sure you enable the LAN card which is used to connect to computer ‘A’. Here you need not give any IP information as Computer ‘A’ will assign an IP address dynamically. If it’s not working make sure there are no IP assigned and change the properties to ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’.
Step 8: Test the connection by pinging. (You can do this by typing ping 192.168.0.1 or whichever is Compter ‘A’s IP in the comand prompt)
NOW your computers are connected. Now to share the internet:
Right click LAN card which is connected to Internet under Control Panel -> Network Connections and click ‘Sharing’ tab and enable both the options to share Internet. (Note: Unless there is another enabled LAN setting you will not be able to see the shared tab under properties)
Click Ok and close. This option is given by the Windows OS known as ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).
Now you can use Internet from both Computer A and Computer B from a single connection.
So this is the setup you need on the Host computer as you requested, if you turn out to need help witht he XP one too, let me know:)

To check your connection settings, click the Tools menu, and then click
Internet Options. On the Connections tab, click Settings. The settings
should match those provided by your local area network (LAN)
administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).
If your Network Administrator has enabled it, Microsoft Windows can
examine your network and automatically discover network connection
If you would like Windows to try and discover them,
click Detect Network Settings
Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the Help menu and
then click About Internet Explorer to determine what strength security
you have installed.
If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your Security
settings can support it. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet
Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section and check
settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.

No matter what I do I keep getting this message when I try to use NEW VERSION IE.
You will have several problems to install Windows XP in a computer designed to use Vista. I personally don´t think it´s fair.
But your problem possibly is not related with the OS. Are you using a wireless router? If yes, the problem may be your 4720´s wireless adapter (probably internal). You can test it by using another wireless network (most malls, shopping centers, airport or hotels have avaiable public wireless internet access).
Hello, It sounds to me like there is a conflict between the Kaskersky and Vista. I'd un-install and use Avast but AVG is a Good Anti-virus also. Vista is sometimes a nightmare. I have problems with certain flash-drives which will not work in Vista. They freeze up the computer. It's Vista. Hope this helps. Good luck.
