    I have a home network consisting of a combined wired XP Pro Desktop and a
    wireless LAN system in place as well, all running off one modem/router combo
    DCHP server. When my niece goes on line with her Vista Home Premium laptop
    wirelessly, my desktop machine grinds to barely dial-up speed. Am on ADSL
    3.0 Mbps speed via AT&T. None of my XP Pro laptops steal the connection
    capability away and if I close the internet connection on VISTA, speed
    returns, so something wrong within Vista setup somewhere, I think. Any help

    Hi Jack:
    I downlaoded and saved the file that TCPView showed when I was not
    connected. I saw no connections that were based from my niece's laptop
    machine recorded here.

    TCPView has be installed and run on the Vista computer. If it does not
    indicate that the computer's TCP/IP generate None stop traffic than it is
    Not Stealing bandwidth, but something else that causes this problem. It
    might be a Router issue. Some old Routers are Not full compatible with
    Vista. Check the support site of the Router to see if there is any
    mentioning of the issue there.

    I don’t that the problem is with the router not being vista compatible because wireless connection is a standard to all computer without looking at the OS one thing I will recommend you to is to check the capability of you wireless router maybe it is not fast enough to host many wireless connections
