Router works with Ubuntu but with locks up with Vista

Router works fine with Ubuntu but with locks up with Vista when I try to see the network. Using wired only, turned off wireless. Can see the Vista machine and shares from the Ubuntu machine but total lockup when trying to browse the network from Vista home premium. Neither machine can see the network after that, no internet access. Disconnect the Ubuntu and Vista still crashes the router. I can get into the router home page for setup but can't browse to the network without locking up (lights stay on but no access from either machine). Have to power down the router AND PC's to reset, router says no newer firmware update available.

    Network properties (tcp/ip) are correct, near as I can determine. Internet access is ok but it still freezes when I try to view the network map. Phonepower internet telephone adapter/router is in front of it, then the cable modem.

    Connected directly to my Phonepower router there is no problem, full access to internet and can't break it, but only one port.

You need to log on with admin privileges to make changes.

Confirm settings in vista network properties (tcp/ip) are correct.

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network

Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

Given the model of the router is known can you provide the manufacturer and model of the computer or wireless adapter if separate. Second step -- eliminate problems one step at a time. Do you have a computer with a known working network card that requires a wire? Use it with a wired connection to test if the router (the router has 4 ports for network wires on it) is working. If the Vista machine has a network card try it with a wire, too. Let me know if the router is working with a computer wired to it.

We will try additional steps after I get the answers to these.
