    strange networking problem

    I have a weird Vista networking problem. My LAN card no longer speaks
    to my router. This is a dual boot laptop, and the connection works
    perfectly on Linux.

    It's specific to the wired connection, too - the built-in wireless
    card works fine.

    I went through TCP/IP properties for the card and they are fine.
    'route print' shows 'media disconnected', which makes no sense (plus,
    i double-checked).

    Has anyone seen this behavior? How does one fix it?

    TIA -

    Open a terminal session and type:

    ipconfig /all

    Should point you in the right direction....pay attention to DHCP DNS and
    gateway values
