EMachine W3623 Vista not accepting router

My wife just purchased an eMachine W3623 with Vista Home Basic at Walmart last month.
eMachines W3623 Desktop PC w/ 17" LCD Monitor, Intel Pentium 4 processor 641 with Hyper-Threading technology

  • 17" widescreen LCD display
  • 3.2 GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor 641
  • 512 MB RAM, 160 GB hard drive
  • DVD Burner, Windows Vista Home Basic
I wanted to network with two other eMachine computers already onlilne with Network Everywhere Router 401 by Linksys. Problem is Network Everywhere 401 router said it wasn't compatable with Vista and so her new computer won't go on line.

It is hooked up to the Internet Explorer but it still is not online.

I even purchased at Walmart a
Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G 54Mbps Broadband Router All-in-one Internet-sharing Router, 4-port Switch, and Wireless-G (802.11g) Access Point Wireless data rates up to 54Mbps -- 5 times as fast as Wireless-B (802.11b), but also interoperable with Wireless-B devices (at 11Mbps) , AND STILL NO INTERNET!

What do I do? Is there a Service Pack that needs downloaded or something?

Please help,

Frustrated dad

Agreed with the above Vista does **** and there are routers and other equipment thats not compatible with Vista, if this is the case then You must download updated drivers from the Netgear Site, they update drivers on occasion but not so much since Windows 7 is out and alot better. My advice, upgrade to 7 and Your worries will be over, Good Luck

Ok i guess this is a noob place so ill just let you know, vista doesnt have a network compatability problem, the protocols that are used in most cases are tcp/ipv4, this is the standard for as long as i have been around, vista has and runs this protocol, it also has the tcp/ipv5 which is the new one that a lot of equipment is not compatable with yet.

EMachine W3507, will not boot after adding 2GB of memory. (2x 1GB; one in each slot). It will boot with one stick, but only if the original 512MG is in slot 1. The 512MB is not recognized.

Where they purchased as a working pair some motherboards will only accept working pairs>?
Make sure RAM modules are of same brand and type try one ram module at a time in the working slot closest the cpu if both work individually they are not a working pair

You might be able to get a recovery CD from the manufacturer instead of where you bought the computer. For E-Machines you can go to and enter the serial number of your unit to get information on ordering recovery media. The recovery cd will have a factory image of the hard drive on it eliminating the need for an actual Vista CD.

Problems with used Emachine W3623 Windows vista Home basic

Simply put, No.

Chances are the performance of vista on an eMachine is an ugly sight anyway. My advise would be to downgrade to XP or try a good solid Linux distribution like Ubuntu. It will preform faster and be more stable that it ever was with Vista. Don't get me wrong I am not a total vista hater but it is a hog.

Best of Luck
