Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Network problems I just bought a new laptop to be used in my company and it is loaded with vista basic. I cannot seem to get the network set up. On the other computers with xp it was quite simple. What is the trick to vista or can it not be done with basic?

Got a toshiba satellite laptop with windows vista basic loaded. bought a new lexmark printer , copier scanner not enough memory to load software


Thats why people are reverting back to windows xp because vista eats up root memory like anything. I'd suggest you to remove few games or useless files from your root directory and perform a cleanup of you root drive.

Windows vista home basic problem (acer aspire 6930)


Unless you can find and verify you have an orignal CD there is nothing you an do but buy another license for th use of Vista. If you made a back up set up. Have yo ulooked at the bottom of the laptop. Most of the time it has the Vista sticker with the key for your windows use. reinstall and use that key.

How to connect to wireless network using vista with SSID disabled


Normal 0 On your laptop, go into the “Manage Network Connections” and delete your network. On you router, disable the SSID. In the “Manage Network Connection” click the add connection button and enter the information about you network manually. Vista will tell you that connecting to a network that doesn’t broadcast it’s SSID is less secure and will ask you to verify. After that it will connect just fine.

The reason its less secure is because your computer will ask everything it can if its xyz network and someone with not-so-good intentions could say that its xyz network and you would connect to a insecure network and all the info that you pass on that network could be intercepted. Choose your poison I guess.

Good luck;

You cant load xp because it probably doesnt recognize some of the new hardware in your laptop. If vista works, then use vista, if it is too slow for vista, then use vista home basic.

Dg 834g router


is this a wireless network?

are you trying to retrieve SECURITY codes, or just basic network settings?

your best bet is probably to log into the router, from the vista laptop, rather than looking at the settings the vista laptop is currently using...

on the vista laptop, open a webbrowser, and type in the ip address for your router.

that is PROBABLY 192.168.0.1

the username is PROBABLY admin
the password is PROBABLY "password"

from there, if you click on wireless settings, it should show you all the details you need.

did the people who set this network up for you leave any information about username, password, ip addresses, anything like that?

Installing Vista A135 laptop in XP wireless network


I would reinstall using the Vista specific drivers from their website:

I have had a lot of problems with HP printers and Vista on our network, but this seems to fix it more times than not.
