Here is the system layout:
Vista Business 32bit SP1
4 gb RAM
It does have the minidock also, but the problem occurs even when not in cradle.
We have a LAN at the office which the laptop connects to no problem. The web browsers work fine. What doesn't work is the google sidebar showing not connected, office 2007 shows disconnected(i believe this might be an exchange server issue showing disconnected) but will still send and receive email, and other small issues like the full version of Adobe 7 not connecting to activate after saying changes were made, windows update won't connect, and avast is unable to download new files. Tried to delete the network profile and create a new one with same issues. It's running windows firewall and I tried turning it off but still won't work. I don't think it is the firewall and the reason being is that if I use the verizon card to access the internet
everything works like it should. Any ideas?
