Unidentified Network in vista

  acero31 15:04 07 Aug 2008

I've 2 desktops w/ lan to a 3comm wi fi router.
Main computer sees the router the second does not. the latter wont access the net via the router, but does w/stand alone broadband modem.
I use vista. The problem computer sees the router called unidentified network, I can print and transfer data though the router.

Ive tried 2 laptops wi fi and hard wired and they both see the modem/router.

Device driver says the router is ok.

Anyone with any ideas?

Windows Vista contains both the familiar IPv4 stack and the new IPv6 stack.

IPv6, when it's rolled out across the Internet over the next few years, will bring an end to

the problem of running out of IP addresses and improve other aspects of TCP/IP


However you do not need IPv6 at present time disable IPv6 in the Windows Vista system.

Download the pdf file will tell you how to disable IPv6 in Vista
