Can't connect to internet with 2wire PC port

Is this product Vista compatible? Just got a new computer with Vista and now my 2wire PC port does not work. It is fairly old, might that be the problem or Windows Vista?

    I have the same problem. I hate Vista. This is Microsofts way of making us go out and by all new hardware and software.

    As far as the PC port, I let the "c" drive look for and install the driver. It will get you online, but computer will eventually shut down and reboot with an error stating incompatability.

Yes U R right. this is most probably a "Driver" problem. You could try installing the software in "Administrator Mode".. with "Compatability Mode" set for XP. If this doesn't work.. then ya may have to try to contact the manufacturer and ask for a compatable driver for Vista.

2wire pc adapter

If you go to the 2Wire site you will see that only 3 of the seven adapter products listed there have Vista drivers.

If you have one of the Vista supported products, make sure you have the Vista driver.

If you do not, get one that is.
