Vista will not recognize router
I have an existing hardwired home network with 2 XP computers sharing
a DSL internet connection, printer, etc. I recently purchased an
additional computer that has Vista. When I tried to access this home
network, it does not seem to recognize the router. I have checked all
of the hardware and software connections that I know about, and no
success. I have run ipconfig on the main XP computer and the Vista
computer and found that the IP address for the two are different. The
XP looks good with 192.168.1.101 while the Vista is 169.254.136.129 I
also found the IP address of the router 192.168.1.1, I was able to
ping it with the XP computer, but the Vista computer gives an error
"transmit failed, error code 1231". The router is a LinkSys NR041
Cable/DSL 4-port Router.

Re: Vista will not recognize router
I can't find the NR041 on the Linksys support site so I can't tell
you if there have been firmware releases for this.

However, two things to try are:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928233/en-us

and unbinding IPv6

The NR041 not on the Linksys site because its not a regular Linksys product.
I have one of those, but don't use it any longer. I don't believe the
firmware has ever been updated past what is on the support pages.

RE: Vista will not recognize router
Hi,

Can you be a bit more specific as to how the computers and printer are
interconnected. Specifically, are the computers independently connected to
the router, and if so which port numbers are they connected to. I am assuming
that the ports have addresses 192.168.1.101-104. Check that the port
connected to your Vista machine is actually enabled in your router. If not,
then enable it through the router interface. You will have to do this from
your XP machine. Once you have ensured that the port is enabled, check to see
if Vista can connect to the Internet. If not, then you might need to set the
IP address manually in Vista - if connected to port #3, for example, then you
will need to set the IP address to 192.168.1.103.

Re: Vista will not recognize router
Dwarf,
there is absolutely NO correlation between port #'s on a router and
IP addresses.

Re: Vista will not recognize router

PLease try disabling the DHCP broadcast flag as mentioned above. If that
does not work disable IPv6. You can also try to disable 'autotuning' :
