Wow mimesis.
Guys you need to provide more info like, what version/bits of Vista and is the SBG900 Security enabled. If its security enabled and you just installed Vista 64 what kind of network adapter do you have? Vista seems to prefer the high-speed 11g adapters. In which case you need to switch the operating mode of the SBG900 to Enhanced-G.

I had a friend that had this same problem.

As long as you know the password to the administrator account log into that and give your account administrator rights and you should be able to access the internet afterwards. I'm not sure exactly how this is done if it works like XP did then you will need to boot in safe mode by usually hitting f8 during the initial booting up of your computer.

Internet connection lost when windows updates, have to do system restore to get back online. Tried downloading firefox and safari neither browser can 'connect to server'. Also the anti virus software can...

I had he same problem connecting to the internet after downloading the updates for Windows XP. It turn out to be that the surcurity downloads are to harsh for some anti virius programmes, and I was told to uninstall my free version of Zone Alarm and try to connect to the internet again. This I did do and was able to connect to internet again. I have since re-installed the Zone Alarm programme and I am able to use the internet once again with the above working.

I hope this help's you.

Cannot maintain wireless connection

Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).

Internet connection for vista

unfortunately, there is nothing that you can copy and transfer from your XP based desktop. The best solution is to call your provider and ask them for a Vista driver update for your usb modem.

Hope this helps.
