Hi community,

I installed Vista yesterday, everything was fine.
But, when I boot the PC with XP it always says a network cable isn't connected.
The on Board LAN card doesn't work anymore.
When I switch to Vista it works. Really crazy.

I tried many things to solve the problem, like uninstalling the driver or siwthing the card off in the BIOS... nothings helps.

I know use WLAN to connect to my router, works ok, but I want to use the on board LAN again.

Anybody got ideas?

HELP ;)

Fixed it. For those who may suffer the same fate, do as follows:

1. Pull the power plug from your PC for a good 30 seconds. It seemed to reset the onboard LAN and give me two LED's back on the LAN input.
2. Go to your router. I found my internet connection had been disconnected. Vista does something to the router, as it kills my internet connection after every time I use it.

Hope this helps someone...

i have a problem that vista don't even have internet connection
the configuration of the ip's and the the internet protocols is not complete as it is beta
i think this version of vista even 1 or 2 have alot of bugs and alot of shorts and missing services
this is what i see and this is what i searched for like for example when i tried to install netbios servie to let the network , it didn't work and i put the windows xp cd instead of vista dvd, then i installed the service and also it didn't work .
i hope that was informative to you

The Microsoft Connect site has a download for Legacy drivers (and they're all network adapters). So, I'd presume that there are issues with the network adapters in Vista.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
