Hi. I just upgraded from Windows XP x86 to Windows Vista x64 on my desktop. Immediately after my successful installation, I plugged the computer in to the internet but was unable to connect. First, let me explain my connection

I am using the motherboards (Asus P5NSLI) integrated network jack. I have a wired connection to a router (Netgear WGT624 v2.) There is also a wired connection from the router to this XP x86 laptop that I am posting this from, so the internet and router definitely work. My ISP is Comcast.

With everything in its default settings (before attempting any suggested fixes), here is my ipconfig /all

I began by searching the internet for people experiencing similar problems, and I attempted all the suggested fixes with no success. It is possible that I may have done one or more of the steps incorrectly, but I tried multiple times. Here is what I have tried with no luck.

- Disabling UAC
- Disabling Windows Firewall
- Disabling IPv6
- Disabling TCP and IPv4 Checksum Offload
- Manually assigning an IP address, DNS Server, and gateway

After disabling IPv6 and disabling Checksum Offload, I saw some differences in ipconfig and pinging.

Ping request could not find host www.google.com. Please check the name and try again.

I noticed in the ipconfig that the ip assigned was 169.254 which i thought was strange because it had always been 192.168 before. I then edited the IPv4 settings to use manual ip assignment to 192.168.0.5, subnet mask to 255.255.255.0, gateway to 192.168.0.1, and dns to 192.168.0.1.

I am able to log in to the router fine from my laptop. I checked to make sure I have the most recent firmware installed.

Today I went out and bought a new router, one that was labeled as supporting windows vista. I purchased a Netgear WGR614 v7. I set it up and have the same problems. I am able to access the internet from this laptop wired or wirelessly, but not on the desktop running vista x64.

Its very strange, I believe the desktop connects to the router fine because ipconfig /all shows it having a proper IP and everything. But, when I ping the router or any website I get usually get request timed out, or sometimes it will ping correctly but the delay is like 2k. So it seems like it talks to the router fine but the response time is very very slow, causing it to time out.

the connection with the new router is wired. I posted multiple ipconfig /all in the original post, but here is another one.

This is an ipconfig /all with everything at default vista settings, except for UAC and windows firewall disabled. Autotuning=normal, Checksum Offload enabled, reg edits normal (dhcp broadcast), etc

It seems very hit and miss. I notice in there that the IP is 169. which I think indicates a problem with DHCP and obviously why I cant connect to router, but sometimes I am able to get it to give me a 192.168 address which means it connected to router fine. When I have a 169 address pinging the router gives an error code 1231, but when I have a 192 address sometimes it is able to ping with a huge delay, sometimes it says destination host unreachable, and sometimes it says request timed out.

Update - After purchasing the new router and having no luck I decided to purchase a new netowork card, one labeled as "vista compatible." Plugged it in and viola, internet access. Now, the onboard network worked prior to upgrading from xp x86 to vista x64. My board, p5nsli, is listed as vista compatible. This would indicate that the network /should/ work. Is it something to do with 64 bit? I would still like to indentify the problem with this onboard device.

Now that I am connected ot the internet I am going to check for windows updates and make sure all drivers are up to date. Maybe then it will work /shrug

The question is from where are you getting the IP address, DNS and DHCP. the series you mentioned is a private series, It also depends on if this is internet or intranet.
