Ok, I've had a look through ths forum and tried several of the suggestions including 1. Manally changing the TCP/IP settings (I don't know if they are right, I'm just copying them from the status bit of the router set up) 2. Adding the BroadcastFlagToggle entry to the registry as per the microsoft support article. 3. typing that stuff into the CMD prompt above. 4. Changing the broadcast channel. 5. disabling ipv6 6. aimlessly tampering with the settings of both laptop and router. All with...
I thought today with upgrading to SP1 it would solve the problem but NO!
I have a one year old Acer Aspire 3690 with a Atheros AR5005G adapter. The router is a Cable & Wireless ADSL 2+ which has no info about it when you google the model number.
Funny thing is, my housemate is able to get his mac connected, I can get my work laptop which has XP on it connected OK. I've taken the Vista laptop out to pubs and cafes which it's be able to connect both on open and WPA connections. It seems this router just doesn't get on with Vista.
Have you any other suggestions.
Thanks in Advance...
