Thanks for the speedy response!
I appreciate the router is quite old and I'm considering replacing it
anyway, but it does work pefectly with the Vista laptop.
I've already tried KB928233, but I haven't tried the MS testing tool -
I'll try and download that over the weekend, as I'm currently
One thing I forgot to mention is that on the laptop (Vista Home
Premium SP1 32bit), there is an "ICS" tab on one of the network
settings dialogs, although everything is unticked. However, this tab
doesn't appear at all on the desktop. Could ICS somehow be intefering?
