Latest goofy Vista bug
Vista just for fun, without asking of course decided to kill my
Internet connection, but just for web sites.

I have a always on broadband connection from WOW which works quite
well, is fast, and on 99% of the time. Its on now... obviously, I just
send this post. So I DO have Internet access.

This will make you chuckle.

I was in another newsgroup and clicked on a embedded link to some
vendor web page. The page came up, but right after so did the new
version of the dail-up access box asking for my password, log-in,
etc.. I first thought oh, this is a odd thing to put on a web page, (
thought for a second is just was a embedded image) but it wasn't on
the web page it was my copy of Windows again. So I click on this
window to close it and exit the web site. I think nothing of it and
sometime after visit my desktop where I have several shortcuts to web
sites I visit a lot.

You guessed it. Now none of them work. Click on any they all tell me
I'm off line. Baloney I say, (actually I said something more colorful)
and again go to Usenet and do some surfing just to confirm I haven't
lost by Internet connection. Just to be double sure, I open DU Meter
which is a little utility that sits on the task tray and SHOWS you
up/down traffic in mb up or downl. So no doubt I AM CONNECTED RIGHT
NOW to the Internet.

Shame Vista is too dumb to not know that.

A reboot will problaby fix what happend. That's later.

forums with their pointless, Go buy a mac nonsense, the world would be a
better place.

You love your MAC ! Great ! Go hang out in the MAC forums !

Ten top reasons I'll NEVER get a Mac

1. I want nothing to do with Steve Jobbs.
2. Apples always look like a toy on your desk.
3. Apples crash just as often as PC's do.
4. Apples have limited hardware
5. Apples have limited software
6. You can't build (customize) your own Apple
7. Apple hardware and software is overpriced
8. I don't want to be laughed at.
9. I don't want to shop in some dark corner of the store.
10. I'm way too smart to downgrade to a Mac.

I can understand that.

You are not looking at the same modela i am looking at.

False. Never did, never will.
> 4. Apples have limited hardware

All too true.
> 5. Apples have limited software

Didn't use to be, they were the first with really big displays, page layout
software, and several other things. Courtesy of the Woz.
> 6. You can't build (customize) your own Apple

Also mostly true.
> 7. Apple hardware and software is overpriced

The hardware yes; the software to do the same thing on a Mac has usually
been less expensive (until relatively recently). Typically lower TCO in
the 1980's and 1990's.
> 8. I don't want to be laughed at.

So don't tell.
> 9. I don't want to shop in some dark corner of the store.

So shop online, in the comfort of your own space, lighted as you like.
> 10. I'm way too smart to downgrade to a Mac.

For the added lack of virus/trojan/spyware/adware problems it constitutes a
serious upgrade for an Internet cruising machine. For office productivity
it is a tie.

What has really happened is that your network settings have become
corrupted, it has appened to me on XP a couple of times now. Completely
strip out _all_ network stuff (including _all_ drivers) and let Vista find
it again. It should set it up correctly again.
