Which modem do you have now?

  skidzy 14:30 27 Apr 2007

Most certainly use ethernet if possible.As anskyber says..what modem ?

If usb you may have to try out a Vista driver if one is availble.

Though if a Speedtouch usb modem,i have had a couple of driver issues,but nothing major.Just to add,the Speedtouch modem has a beta Vista driver availble.

My Speedtouch USB modem has no problems whatsoever. I suggest you look on the modem manufacturer's website for any Vista compatibility errors and drivers.

Or AOL's - I think they've got Vista drivers up for their modems.

Just had a quick look around and came across this click here

Note: AOL 9.0 VR (Vista Ready)

Defo use ethernet, much beter connection, saves on usb port and reduces power consumption for ur pc. I have Netgear wireless router running on my work pc and works a treat.

This would suggest you are out of luck. click here

Thanks for input i will close thread now

You are indeed out of luck. I've been speaking to AOL about drivers and there won't be any for older modems.
