Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you tried disabling the Windows built-in firewall in Control Panel / Windows Frewall of the XP desktop?

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

    If the XP could still not access the Internet:


    • Windows key + R;

    • type "cmd" less the quotes;

    • on the command prompt window, type "ipconfig  /all" less the quotes;

    • determine / notedown: IP Address, Subnet Mask; Default Gateway & DNS Servers;

    • do the same with the Vista laptop;

    • compare the two;

    • must be similar except the last digits of the IP Address.
    Please postback results / details.

Check firewall settings in vista, might need to create exemptions to allow access. Check Antivirus settings in vista, might need to create exemptions. Quick test is to switch off both antivirus and firewall in order to establish connection. Also check if there is a newer wifi driver for your laptop.

Windows Vista home + Windows XP Professional Networking issue


Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.

Whats the operating system of your server?

Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.

I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.

I would check with Microsofts website on that.

Netgear Firewall


with the router connected, open Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 after you log in there is a option on the left for firewall and you can turn it off. If it were me I would use the routers firewall over a software firewall though. By the time a software firewall detects a hack, its already in the PC.

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop


Sometimes firewalls on your computers can cause connection issues. I had the same problem with my home network. I had norton internet security 2008 on both systems, but the firewall settings on both computers had to be adjusted to allow the computers to talk. If you have different brand firewalls on each computer, you should consider to switching one of the computers so that it matches the other.

Another thing you want to do is log into the router's web utility and check to see if the wireless settings are blocking wireless connections in some way. You also want to make sure the ssid broadcast is enabled.

Finally, you really should consider using security on your router, so wireless connections would be password protected. I suggest wpa personal.

With Vista on the Laptop it should be just a matter of double clicking the router in the network settings, vista should automatically configure the connection.
This has happened to me before and this is what I did just to see if it worked, and it did flawlessly.

Cannot access Internet thru router


Power off the following items: Power off the router wait for five minutes. You may have to reset the router. You shouuld have a reset button on the router some where. After resetting the router make sure you set your security settings. Have you tried uninstalling your firewall software and then reinstalling? I have worked on alot of machines that had problems with AOL and I like cable or dsl better. 1. Left click on start and choose the run option. 2. Type the folllowing text CMD and choose ok or enter key. 3. Now you should have a dos menu. 4. Type the following command line ipconfig/flushdns 5. Close everything out and trying connecting to the internet now. Good luck.
