I have been through all that stuff
I have things configured correctly on all machines.. I have double and
triple checked this
it is a wireless bug on name resolution and I can find no way to correct it
by any configuration changes
it simply will not work correctly
it is absolutely isolated to wireless networking
While on wireless -- I can clearly access my wireless access point, the
wireles nic get a IP address and firewall gateway properly and I can always
access the internet
then problem is accessing other computer on the internal network -- all
machines are in the same workgroup, all machine are in the subnet... etc etc
the vista laptop simply refuses to name resolve and access other machines on
I have even turned of the computer browser service on all machine except my
windows 2003 server box to avoid browser master election problems
as I said -- swap in a hard drive with XP and the laptop connects wirelessly
plug in a wired lan cable and the vista laptop work absolutely as exepcted
I have another vista machine with only wired networking on the lan and its
works perfectly fine on the network.. It has other Vista wierdness with some
software like repeated VC++ runtime errors that I can not trace to cause..,
but it networks with issues..
I know how to share folders and the like in VISTA without problem
the issue for me is clearly this wireless network anomaly with wireless name
resolution on the lan.
