Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
I am using two Windows OS using dual boot. 1st I had Windows XP and my latest addition is Windows Vista Home Premium.
However I am stuck up with a weird problem for network connectivity. I have
configured network settings of Vista exactly same as my XP, however I am
unable to ping my ISP's gateway from Vista. The same is working perfectly
from XP. I disabled Firewalls of Vista, but no result.
I do have MacAfee 8.5ii AV on both the OS and have allowed all default configurations on both them. Infact I disabled it on Vista. Can anyone help me in zeroing on the issue?
This could be an issue having to do with the installed drivers for your network adapter. XP and Vista use different drivers, even though the hardware is the same...Take a look through this tutorial and make sure all your network hardware has vista drivers installed. Also possibly helpful would be a read through of this vista help site...
I would start there, and if you need further assistance after making sure you have the correct drivers for vista, write back and we'll be happy to help you sort it out...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
