Thanx for the response Charlie, but the same thing works under XP 32 and XP
64 bit version I have tried all version. Same cable same router it works.
Only when its under Vista Environment it doesn't work. And I see the
connectivity meaning the lights turn on both on the laptop and on the router
showing that there is some thing linking but nothing further.
I am suspecting two things:
1- The drivers are not the right ones, therefore it has problem running.
2- The Vista has TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6 Protocols that either requires
special settings or specific cables. Generic cables won't work (i guess).
Please help, I am still looking.......
