If you can connect to your router using 192.168.2.1 when connected, then vista isn't your problem. You need most likely need to resync your router to your cable/dsl modem. The easiest thing to do is run the 192.168.2.1 on the computer that was connected to the modem. You will go to the clone mac address, then reboot the router, or renew dhcp. If there is any other problems message me on AIM.

ok first look for the cd disc that came with the printer. Instal this onto your computer. you should have a usb cable either with the printer or previously bought, it will have a normal connector on one end and a square connector on the other. if the disc and programmes have installed correctly when you connect up the printer it should recognize the printer. You can also go to your start menu and search for printers and add the printer here. make sure you choose the usb port as the default port. when you set it up choose local printer usb virtual port. when the models come up select have disc and load the supplied disc then it will run and auto install. Good luck
Problems authenticating a router in a computer is a common problem when installing a router or if your internet service gets disrupted. It is easy to solve and only requires a few steps to fix. A router forwards data from a computer to a computer network. The network can be between multiple computers, such as one would need in an office. The network can also, and more usually in households, used for connecting to the internet. Open "System Preferences" in the Applications folder in Finder. Open "Network" under "Internet and Wireless." Click "Advanced" and select "TCP/IP." Select "Renew DHCP License" and click ok. Attempt to connect to the internet. If the internet is still not connecting, restart the router and try the steps again. b> For non-Macs b> Open "Wireless Network Connection" from the wireless tab at the bottom of the screen. Select "Change Advanced Settings." Choose the "Wireless Networks" tab. Choose the wireless network you want to connect to and select the "Properties" button. Under the "Association" tab, make sure the Network Authentication has the proper security level chosen. Enter your network key if your security code is anything other than "Open" or "Shared." Select OK and try to connect. Go Back to "Wireless Networks" tab -> "Properties" and click on "Authentication" tab and un-select the "Enable authentication for the network" selection if the network key is still not authenticating the router. Select OK and try to connect. Hope this helps.
Go to Start->Control Panel->Network and Internet->Network and Sharing center->Manage network connections
You will find icons like local area connection, wireless connection and lot more. Just have one local area connection enabled and disable all other icons. Then run the setup
in this case first you need to check the ip address by goin on start- run - type cmd -- then type ipconfig , if its giving you a valid ip address then try to access internet and select the option that says automatically detect settings and you will find that option under -- open internet explorer then go to tools- internet option- connections - lan settings
if you are not getting any ip address then do a right click on my compuetr icon on your desktop adn go to properties-- hardware- device manager-- network adaptors - and uninstall all the adaptors and then do a right click on network adaptors and then scan for hardware changes .
and the third option is to uninstall Internet explorer 8 adn try with IE 6
1st step is to call netzero and as per the setup get it configured.
2nd on your comp go to control panel-network connections- delete all the connections listed their- insert the disc provided with router- run the setup and install it- then connect the usb of router and see if it works..
Welcome to FixYa! Vista is not access friendly but you will able to see your connection status by clicking on the network connection icon on the taskbar where you will see "Connected to: " and if you click on that a network map will appear. You will see a red "X" between your wireless access point icon and your Internet icon if the access status is "Local only". Clicking on the Internet icon will retry that connection. Make sure that your ip address is not 169.xxx.xx.x as that is Windows little way of saying it can't connect.
If you choose the Diagnose option it will do a release/renew operation automatically. With Vista you must "elevate" access by right clicking on the Command prompt executable and choose "Run as administator" if you wish to do that ipconfig manually.
Also when you are in the firewall configuration select the wireless connection>settings and make sure all of the permissions boxes are checked (ICMP, etc.)
With the adaptor advanced settings make sure your adaptor has the wireless mode (a, b, g, n) at the correct mode.
Have you tried logging on to the router via the Run bar? That is the most informative way to see your router config. Please repost if you need help with that. I also am a network professional certified since 1978 so I know that Vista defies using many tools we took for granted for so many years and often makes me feel frustrated. Maybe Windows 7 will be better as I only run Vista to help others like yourself, though at least you can understand what I am talking about:) Good luck, Steve Medley
