Test your router/IGD for Vista Compatibility

  1. Please forgive caps as answers. Thank you.
    DHCP, I TRIED STATIC AND I COULDN'T ACCESS THE ROUTER, TRIED DISABLING IPV6
    SAME PROBLEM
    UPNP IS DISABLED
    A "DEFAULT" OPEN SHOWS UP THEN AFTER A WHILE A MAC ADDRESS SECURED SHOWS UP.
    IT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN THE VISTA COMPUTER IS ON. IT HAPPENED BEFORE SO I
    THOUGHT IT WAS A NEIGHBOR, BUT IT'S NEVER THERE WHEN THE VIST COMPUTER IS
    OFF. IT HAPPENED WITH THE DLINK ROUTER TOO

    can you check your tcp/ip properties again and confirm you have not
    statically configured DNS? you are showing 4.2.2.x

  5. Nope, nic properties are set to all automatic.
    That dns comes from the router settings for Verizon.

    it is really bizarre that two different routers have had issues
    here. the Intel NIC is on autopilot now. I'd be curious to see what
    happens if you set it to 100mb/half duplex.

  7. I was thinking along those lines. The drivers I am using are out of the box
    (6/2006) Vista drivers. There is a newer Intel pro-set driver package
    (12/06) I am thinking about installing. What exactly does this mean?
    "Adapters based on the Intel(R) 82542, 82573V/E, 82562V, 82562GT and 82566
    controllers
    do not support Jumbo Frames. These correspond to the following product
    names:
    Intel(R) PRO/1000 PM Network Connection
    The Intel PRO/1000 PL Network Connection supports jumbo frames in Microsoft*
    Windows* operating systems only when Intel(R) PROSet for Windows Device
    Manager is installed"

    Pretty much irrelevant to your situation. You don't have a GigE
    router and you don't need this.

    I'm very interested to see what happens when you set to 100mbs

  9. I set it to 100mbs/half duplex and the XP tablet won't connect at all.

    I'd try one more thing. Delete the Intel NIC from device manager and
    shutdown. Power up and it should be redetected. See if this makes
    any difference. I don't have much hope, but it's worth a try.

    Also, do you by chance have a different brand NIC you could try (and
    if yes, disable the Intel one).

    I'll try that next week. I am in Arizona setting up mu daughter's Vista box,
    and wireless setup was FLAWLESS on it.

  12. OK Now I know I am going crazy. I disconnected the cable from the router to
    the nic, then booted the machine, and the wireless dropped. So I disabled
    the onboard nic in the bios, booted the computer and the wireless dropped. I
    have another nic to try, as well as a usb-ethernet adapter, but if the Vista
    machine kills the wireless with NO connection to the router whatsoever, I am
    STUMPED.

    P.S. The message I sent from Arizona under another profile revealed that I
    had NO problems setting up my daughter's Vista machine EVEN THOUGH her
    machine says her wireless USB adapter is not supported. Also my tablet ran
    fine all weekend on opne wireless with or without her computer running.

    can you go into the router and change the wireless channel? if it is
    on 6, try 1 or 11.

  14. BINGO! After years of playing with computers, even I forget Standard
    Operating Procedure. Thank you, Barb, for sticking with me on this one. Set
    to channel 11 cured it.

    When I receive my Vista upgrade for the tablet, I'll post progress on your
    blog. It should be interesting running 64 bit on the Asus R1F.
    Thanks again,
    Tony

    I am happy we got to a resolution, even though it was the long way
    around. Good luck with the tablet!
