Problems getting a connection with vista operating system

Is there an incompatibilty with VISTA and NEXX N4PRouter. I have a new laptop tha runs Vista that continues to drop connection, won't connect, etc on a regular basis. Also, I have a 2nd laptop running XP and it does fine with the N4PRouter expect when I try to get a connection on the Vista PC then it takes down the connection on the XP PC. The NEXX N4PRouter is about 3 - 4 years old. its serial number is CB03A167000876. Should I buy a new router or is there another fix. thanks.

This could possibly be an issue with the drivers provided by vista for your NIC. Try looking for updates for it or just tell me the model name of it.

    Assuming you are using ethernet to connect lets try getting an drive update first. Download this:http://dl.okglb.com/consumerdl.lenovo.co...
    This should let you update your NetXtreme Gigabit NIC. Tell me how it goes because I still have some solutions considering this is a gigabit nic and your NEXX router is most likely not running on that mode.

Im using a 2Wire Gateway DSL connected via ethernet to a Mac G4, I also have a laptop running windows vista and it has strong wi-fi connection, sending packets at optimal levels and speed. BUT Problem


Vista has a well known flaw of not allowing you to easily change access rights after selecting "public network" in the initial network connection screens. The easiest fix is to change the name of your wifi access point, reconnect, and be absolutely certain to select "home network" when the prompt comes up.

The best solution however is to ditch that crummy excuse for an operating system and upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.

Problem connecting to WNR2000 on laptop running vista


Perform the task below on the wireless VISTA computer:

1. Click START, Click Control Panel then click classic view in left hand side menu.
2. In the main screen, open up NETWORK AND SHARING CENTER.
3. In the left hand side menu open up MANAGE WIRELESS NETWORKS.
4. If you see any name in the list, please select the name and click remove.
5. Once the list is empty, click on ADD, select the first option, ADD A NETWORK THAT IS IN RANGE OF THE COMPUTER.
6. Click on your network name SSID and click on connect. If you have a password setup on the router enter the security key.
7. This should setup the wireless network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

The operating system on my PC is XP and I bought a new HP laptop with Vista. I cant seem to get the wireless feature to work now - it worked fine with my previous laptop running XP.


I'm assuming that your Vista has a built-in wireless.. If so, the first thing you need to check is if the wireless function is turned on (usually by pushing Fn + F2. Check from your laptop manufacturer). Then follow these instructions: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/88ea056e-664a-4c3d-b977-13f79cb4dedb1033.mspx

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop


When you look on the box that the router came in, you have to look to see what Operating Systems it is compatible with. In many cases, routers will not be compatible with vista. I have a Linksys WRT300N, and it works great with Vista.Hope this helps.
