Weird Wireless DNS Issue
Hi all,

So here's the situation:

I have a static IP set up through my router. I can connect to my router, either through wireless or through a wired connection.

The wired connection connects to the internet just fine.
When I try to connect wirelessly, though, Vista throws a message saying that it cannot communicate with the DNS servers.

After making changes in Vista to connect dynamically, I can connect to my neighbor's wireless router and get through to the internet.

My laptop is dual-booted with Ubuntu Linux. In Linux, I can connect to my router and get on the internet both with a wired and a wireless connection. This is with the same static IP settings.

In other words:

-Can connect to internet through Linux with static IP while wired
-Can connect to internet through Linux with static IP while wireless
-Can connect to internet through Vista with dynamic IP while wired
-Can connect to internet through Vista with dynamic IP while wireless
-Can connect to internet through Vista with static IP while wired
-CANNOT connect to internet through Vista with static IP while wireless, but still can connect to my router

This connection was working fine until the other day. I was connected wirelessly, attached my ethernet cable to my laptop, then restarted. The wired connection worked fine. I unplugged, then restarted, and ever since, the wireless connection with static IP refuses to work.

Any ideas? I've tried restarting multiple times, checked all my static IP settings, flushed and registered DNS, clicked the "Diagnose and Repair" button numerous times (always eventually get "Can't be repaired automatically" message), and unplugged and rebooted both my cable modem and router.

Can't think of what to try next. Anybody out there encounter a similar problem?

Thanks!

-Bud
