I have a home network with 2 XP PC's run through a Actiontek 1524 DSL
modem/gateway (all wired). It is with Qwest DSL. I recently bought a Toshiba
A135-S4427 Satellite notebook that was just released with Vista Home Premium,
and pluged it into my network. The network icon in the system tray gives me a
Limited connectivity message, and won't connect to the network or the
internet. My other computers are still all connected, and can communicate. I
took it back to Best Buy and it connected to their network just fine. I don't
trust the local Geek Sqaud, when they look like they are still in Jr high.
What can I try?
