ISP is a small company in our /small/ city. Wifi network is provided for a
community of people therefore there is no problem with sharing a
connectivity. In fact we know almost all people connected to this wifi
network. That's about ISP.
Regarding ipconfig /all - I will be able to send it when I will be at home
again - at the end of week (currently I am abroad).
I just want to add some info - we already tried to upgrade Network card
driver - its Intel LAN card (don't remember exact type) and we tried last
Intel's drivers for Vistas - no positive results.
Regarding router software - we tried to change our old OvisLink WL-1120AP
for Wistron AirCA8-PRO suggested by our ISP. We tried to use last firmwares
on both of these AP (both were configured as clients). Results were the same.
We also tried to turn off IPv6 in Vistas, again no result. We tried to
connect notebook to (our friend's) DSL router and tried to download all
available vista updates. No improvement.
