Hey,

I currently have a linux box that is directly connected to the internet.

It is setup to issue IPs to all computers on the network via a hub. DHCP is configured properly and all computers can access the internet except for the one running vista.

I can ping the server from the computer running vista and it definitely got an ip from the linux box, but... the vista computer is giving a Multiple networks with local access only.

I've tried disabling ipv6 as well as file sharing and the other options. But to no avail.

Any thoughts on what the problem could be?

I was having similar issues ; I'm fairly sure it was upgraded network card drivers that did the trick but I disabled all power management for the NIC as well.

It works intermittently now.

Works for about 6 hours and then gives local until rebooted.

Any thoughts on what's going on?
