Vista & Pipex Wireless Router internet Poblems

  ShaunMac 09:19 31 Aug 2007

I am running Vista Premium on HP Laptop, Pipex dsl with PIpex supplied speedtouch wireless router. Just tried setting it all up with Pipex install cd (does support vista), can connect to router ok but has lots of problems getting out to the internet, proved router & dsl link is ok with another laptop, connects to the net everytime(running xp) so i guess this is a vista config prob - tried public & private nw's, it only intermittently connects, when I use ethernet cable it is fine everytime so must be a wireless Vista config issue, any ideas please?...

Have you tried temporarily turning off your firewall and Security ( anti virus , anti spy ware ) and trying again , it may be a firewall issue ....

This could be so many things. Have you checked to see if there's an updated wireless driver for your notebook? I think that's the first thing I'd try, if you've proved it works on another machine.
