I have similar problem. Prior to installing SP-1 on Vista Ultimate last
evening, I had no problem at my office that has a LAN T-1 connection
(10.1.1.1) and a wireless router that only connects to my printer/scanner
(192.168.2.1). I could be connected to both simultaneously and use internet
while printing and scanning. Today, internet will only work on LAN if I turn
off the wireless connection to my printer/scanner.
After playing with some settings, can finally use both but LAN appears to be
offline. this is very unnerving.
