i'm running vista home premium and had a first run-in with a network
connection issue. i'm connected to this network at work, which is available
both wirelessly and with a cable - i have the correct user id/password to
connect to this network, but for some reason, everytime i put in the
id/password, windows vista puts the computer name in front of the id (hence
causing the login to not work).
how do you go around this?
scenario (windows dialog prompting network id/password):
click ok and sees an error stating login failed (not due to incorrect
sees in the dialog window that windows vista has prefixed the id i have just
entered to be
any help/comments appreciated.
