so i installed vista and tried to get my wireless network going.. I have been able to connect to the network but have not been able to get an ip address and surf the net. Is this problem vista related to something wrong with my network (ie. no more available ip addresses? currently there are 2 other comps on the network and they all are connected)

Wireless configuration was a breeze for me - it did it all for me. Both at assorted hotspots and on my home network.

Are you using any customized settings on the router or the PC? Vista wasn't able to recognize a static IP when I installed it on my desktop as an upgrade to XP.

It's recommended that you install using default settings and then customize as needed
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.
