    Please explain. Just because a PC is running Vista doesn't mean that it will automatically block connections.

    How are you trying to connect to the printer? Local install, or across a network?

    What errors do you get.

    What have you tried doing to get it to connect?

You may need the latest drivers and software for your printer. Also vista may have a slightly different control panel than xp

Wireless unable to connect

Windows 7 is not best suited yet for wireless connectivity, but broadcom wireless cards/dongles are about the only ones that work favourably with this Microsoft offering. Anything to do with non working hardware IS A DRIVER ISSUE AND IF IT IS NOT IN THE UPDATE SITE YOU WILL HAVE TO DOWNLOAD DRIVERS FROM THE VENDOR OF YOUR PARTICULAR HARDWARE. MOST HARDWARE THAT WORKS IN VISTA WILL WORK IN WINDOWS 7.

My computer when connected to wireless network keeps showing the message "Windows cannot confugure wireless network." It becomes difficult to get it to work.

You may want to disable the built-in utility of the network adapter and let the wireless zero configuration of Windows take up the task of managing the wireless network.
