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.

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.

If you are at home, your network settings have to be a "Private" network. Go into the control panel > Network and Sharing Center > Look under the text "View your active network" and click on the blue text. Make sure you choose "Home Network".

Now, click on Advanced sharing settings, you will see it to the left and make sure that network discovery is turned ON. save your changes and exit.

Now, bring up a browser window and don't worry if it doesn't connect yet. Once the window is up, look tot he right and choose the drop down menu "Tools", scroll down to the bottom and choose "Internet Options", Click on the tab "Connections", look to the bottom of that window and clicl on "LAN settings", When that windown opens make sure that only the top box is checked and that all others are unchecked. The only thing you want checked is "Automatically detect settings".

Now, reboot the machine and see if you have internet access.

Configuring clint vista to use shared internet in a LAN


The Internet connection must be shared for you to use it. You probably haven't configured your vista correctly. Try connecting via your internet connection (Networking)

You might have an anti-virus or firewall program installed on this laptop that is blocking your access. Norton Internet Security and TrendMicro PC-cillin are notorious for creating connectivity problems if they are not properly configured.

Home network set up


Possibly the best solution for moving the emails is not as much about a home network as it is about the method you use. I definitely enjoy having a home network because it allows me to share music and files between my computers and it allows me to give internet access to friends when they come over.

That being said, it sounds like you are using Outlook Express for your email and are going to be moving it to Vista's "Windows Mail", which is a repackaging of the same program.

To do this, you will have to export your email in a format that the Windows Mail in your new laptop can read. Luckily you aren't the first person to do this. Try this instructional page. The trick is that where this walkthrough assumes you will be moving the data in a thumb drive or other transportable device, if you had a home network set up you could save it directly to the shared directory of your new computer. That's the only difference.

After you have followed the instructions, make sure all of your email has imported properly and then delete it from the Windows XP laptop. Also, remember to delete from your thumb drive or other device the file you used to transfer the email over to the new computer.

If you don't already have wireless set up, it is probably the easiest and most friendly way to have a home network. Microsoft has a good starter introduction to it. But the basics are pretty basic. If you have DSL or Cable internet already and your "router" or modem doesn't already have a wireless router built in (no antennae), then you'll need a wireless router. Even if you don't have any DSL/Cable service you'll want a wireless router. Check out Netgear, 3Com, and Linksys for these.

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.
