What does the error message say?

Does your ISP have any specific recommendations concerning Vista? I ask because there's a lot of places out there that haven't upgraded/enabled the features that Vista needs to communicate (the 2 primary areas that I've seen are IPv6 and the DHCP Broadcast Flag).

You can disable IPv6 (the only thing that requires it is Meeting Space - it's optional for everything else) in the Network connection's Properties. You can disable the DHCP Broadcast flag using these directions: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233

Also, does it change if you connect with a wire to the router? (could be a problem with the wireless portion of the router).

ok,,got it fixed........my wireless card (desktop),,was supposed to be vista ready,,according to it,s specs...
i called the manufacturer to see if there were any fixes or help..
they told me that even that it said it was vista ready,,,they weren,t sure if it was compatible or not...
went out and got another card (netgear,vista-ready)..installed it and problem solved!!!!
i guess manufacturers need time to get correct drivers made for vista...keepin xp on my main computer for a while yet......maybe a LONG while!!!
thanks for the tips though!!!

Formula1 -
I had the same problem and was stunned at the various "problems" I was offered - from defective CD to disk error. My son said, "Dad, just install the drivers." It worked & should have been the first thing all the "experts" asked.

Glad you got it going

it was a dynex card that was advertised as vista-compatible...got it at best buy...(got it free when the router was purchased at the same time)..
router was netgear ..

you,d think dynex would know if their products were compatible or not ??????

i checked their website for that and called their tech support..
they didn,t know if it worked or not ....they told me to check with the store i bought it from if there was any update for vista...

now why would best-buy know if the manufacturer didn,t know itself????
