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.

Windows vista


Windows Vista is the new operative system distributed from Microsoft, following the previous release of Windows XP.

An operative system is the interface between the user (you ) and the computer, that allows you to manage computer hardware resources and peripheral, and manage processes (software) running on your computer.

From the user point of view The operative syste is the environment where you run applications, manage connected devices, storing files and starting and stopping programs.

Vista is the latest OS released from Microsoft. It has a powerful interface, but it can be slow running on old computers. On vista you can also have some compatibility problem when you try to install old devices built for XP, such as printers, scanners etc.

Running Windows Vista


Yes it will.

The Microsoft Office Suites are designed to run on Vista. Many of the new improvements in the Suites are only available on Vista.

The problem is that Vista has not been proven yet as an operating system. But Microsoft has made it clear that it is going to stop supporting XP at some point in the future and is focusing all of the company's attention on improving Vista.

Good luck with your new laptop!

Windows Vista


I understand completely. Eventually everyone will be running Vista, so support will increase with time when more people move to it. I can navigate through XP easier, but I'm sure an Experienced Vista user can do the same. Good luck on which ever you decide!

Window Vista drivers


No, it's not just you. Vista has had problems with many devices including Verizon DSL modems - which are in a LOT of households. The good news is that new solutions are being discovered every day. Perhaps the best site will be:
http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/hardware.mspx

Also, try entering the exact model unmber of your problem product in the search bar on the Microsoft product.
