When I boot up Vista my network shows 'Limited Connectivity'. If I
then physically disconnect then reconnect the LAN cable I can then
access 'Local and Internet'.
If after bootup if I use Diagnose and Repair it has no effect.
I loaded drivers
from the Intel website for the NIC (Intel 82566DC)
which made no change.
I tried setting a static IP address instead of DHCP which had no
I did a Dell Diagnostic on the card itself which it passed.
XP systems on the LAN connect at startup without problems.
Any further diagnostics to do, or ideas welcome!
