This depends on where the issue is occurring (at the website, in your ISP, your home network, or on your system).
Have you verified that your modem and router are Vista compatible? Have you verified with your ISP that it is Vista compatible (I know of one ISP that won't support Vista in my area). Have you verified that your system is Vista compatible (in particular your network card and it's drivers)?
There's several "tricks" to improve Vista connectivity when using hardware with dubious support. Here's the most common:
1) Ensure that the latest Vista drivers are installed on your system
2) Disable the DHCP Broadcast Flag: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233
3) Disable IPv6 in the properties of your Network card
4) Disable the IP Helper service in the services applet. Go to Start and type in "services.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
