Question about Computers & Internet
Initially, try assigning static IP address to the WiFi card of the Vista laptop. Further disable WEP or WPA security at least during the initial stages of configuration. You may need also to instruct Vista to connect to your WiFi even if it is unsecured.
In some other instances, the WiFi networking device may want to use its proprietary configuration rather than the built-in to Windows.
Pls post back brand and model of the new laptop (with Vista) as well as the wireless networking device attached to it.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post backas requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My wireless connection is not working and i cannot log on to it, I have connected a Netgear WGT624 V3 Wireless Router to my Motorola SurfBoard SB5101E Modem which is connected to Telewest Cable Broadband (internet works fine if i access directly through the modem), on the router the power light is lit and also the internet light flashes rapidly but the wireless light comes on for a couple of
seconds and then goes out - i think this is the problem? I have tried logging on to the router to check the wireless settings but cannot access it, i have also tried connecting directly via LAN but cannot get this to work either although i am not sure if i have connected it correctly?
Any ideas/comments/advice is very much appreciated!!
Thanks in advance,
