vista internet connection problem: static Ip; works with xp laptop and says it is connected

T

thomfoolerys

Hello,

First post so please bear with me.
The basic problem is I am unable to connect to the internet in the flat
that I share. I am running windows vista home premium edition. The
internet is through a bt voyager 220V. I am using a static Ip address
(as is everyone else on the network).

I find vista says I am connected but often find the internet will not
work, sometimes google will work though amazingly slowly and even with
google I often end up using cached pages. MSN messenger does not work,
saying key ports are unavailable.

I have tried turning off the auto tuning, checked the cables and also
tried connecting with my XP machine and all worked well. Straight away,
without a hitch.

Thanks for any help

RE: vista internet connection problem: static Ip; works with xp laptop

I am having the same troubles. I've taken off powersaving option, and tried
using a static address, to no avail. It continues to drop off the internet,
run really slowly, and in addition cannot complete any big tasks, e.g.
downloads, active x pages. I will be watching in anticipation to see if
anyone has fixed this problem.

I would check if there is a new firmware for the router. Or this link may
help.

don't fix the problem, try to use FireFox because some web sites and coding
may not be compatible with IE 7. ...
