RE: Vista 5536 Unable To Connect To The Net
I installed Vista Ultimate last night and all seems to be working except
sound and Internet Connection... I anticipate downloading new sound drivers
once I can get onto the internet. I do have a Linksys WRT54GS Router (wired
connection) and Marvell Yukon Controller... do we still have this problem
with the full release now? Should I Disable the below flags? I was
considering getting a new router.... Thoughts?
