Im using a 2Wire Gateway DSL connected via ethernet to a Mac G4, I also have a laptop running windows vista and it has strong wi-fi connection, sending packets at optimal levels and speed. BUT Problem

Vista has a well known flaw of not allowing you to easily change access rights after selecting "public network" in the initial network connection screens. The easiest fix is to change the name of your wifi access point, reconnect, and be absolutely certain to select "home network" when the prompt comes up.

The best solution however is to ditch that crummy excuse for an operating system and upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.

I have installed a Netgear WNR3500U router on my home network. My Windows 7 WiFi laptop had no trouble finding the router, connecting, and accessing the internet. But our Windows Vista WiFi laptop can...

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.

it sounds like you are trying to access a computer from another computer.

you need to:

1. configure a home network so both computers can see each other:
2. now you need to share folders

now if by ACCESS TO THE SYSTEM I HAVE you mean your network, you need to know what passcode or key code your router was set up with. if you didn't setup security for your password talk to the person that did and find out what the password is. if you can't reach this person you may need to reset your password to defaults which should automatically allow access to any computer your bring into your wireless network (not recommended without security) and then you should reconfigure security and make a note or remember the new password or keycode so you can configure the new and any other computer you want to allow to connect to your network.. this is how you can set to router back to defaults:

To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the administration password
or IP address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router.
1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the Test LED turns on (about 5 seconds).
2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

for more info on how to reconfigure your router and security for it here's your router's manual

good luck

Lose Internet connection on wireless network

Go to the router configuration and change the options so you could use both of them, there is an option says only one type of connection or both of them, change it to both, and everything will be fine.

make sure both computers are on the same workgroup.. make sure you have the firewall settings to allow incoming connections to your shared files... make sure you have allowed acces to them in windows security panel..if you can access the media then you are almost there with the setting... fasted way is to right click on start choose explore then right click on drive or folder you want to share and then choose share from menu.. it will change your firewall and security settings so long as you have already turned off the windows advisor..

Cannot connect to the internet

open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.

New Vista laptop and problems setting up wireless


Chances are the wireless portion of the trendnet software is not compatible with vista. I would uninstall the trendnet software or let windows control the wireless portion of it.

Check to see if you are using any encryption ie. wep or wpa or wpa-tsk. If you are then you will need to enter the network key in windows.

good luck
