    Vista can't get on Internet through LAN/router

    Hello,

    I have a LAN with XP Pros an a few ADSL routers which are equally loaded
    with Internet traffic, IP's are DHCP assigned, and I just set IP address of
    router as Gateway and DNS to any PC that needs access to internet and it
    works fine...

    but on Vista Bussiness, well it sucks. I have defined 2 Networks (why?
    they're automatically set), both public, I set Gateway and DNS IP addresses
    under IPv4 settings...and nothing, Vista doesn't connect to Internet,
    regardless of Windows Firewall on or off...

    Why have you set in Vista the Network to "Public"?
    A home or business Network is set to Private.
    Public is for Wi-fi hot spotes like Airports, etc

    memery stick, replaced it, and hay presto, on the web. However, I have
    no done this 3 times to date and it's driving me nuts!
