Re: Network and Internet Problem
I have read many of the post here and other sites about the limited
connectivity problem. I have it and did much experimenting. I have discovered
that even tho I can not access most of the web, I can access all my https:
sites such as my financial sites. I cannot access google, yahoo, or any other
regular site when this happens. I don't know if this will help or be of any
use to others trying to resolve this Vista "Local only" problem, but thanks
to all those who are trying.

Re: Network and Internet Problem
Hello,

i'm connected to the internet via a wireless Linksys router, and Comcast
Cable internet using a Toshiba laptop running Vista Home Premium (32 bit).
Ever since I connected to this system, i've had all kinds of connection
issues from intermittent disconnects to flat out not being able to reconnect.
The only solution I've found is to switch off the wireless network adapter on
my laptop, then switch it back on... but this serves to only work for a few
minutes, and then it happens again (sometimes only a few seconds before
happening again)

There are 3 other computers attached to this same network, and they run XP.
This machine running Vista is the ONLY computer having this problem. i do not
want to have to reinstall Windows for yet a 5th time to fix this issue...
especially when I can't gaurantee that will fix it!

I've seen several other similar issues noted here that no one can come up
with a fix for. Looks like I might have to downgrade to windows XP, (quite a
bit of money down the drain for this OS if I switch back) Microsoft seriously
needs to release a fix for these issues. Either that or go back to the way it
was in XP with the network/internet stuff, because this is getting out of
hand, and no one seems to be doing anything about it.

Below is a copy/paste from ipconfig /all

Windows IP Configuration

Re: Network and Internet Problem
which Linksys router? what hardware revision and what firmware? what
kind of wireless security are you using? are there errors in event
viewer?

it looks like you have assigned a static IP? what happens when you
use DHCP?

RE: Network and Internet Problem
I have just bought a new PC with Vista Premium installed. Like you, I cannot
get to all websites. I get message 'Internet Explorer cannot display the
webpage'

It seems like I can get to any site that the router has cached in its DNS
cache (I use nslookup and ipconfig /displaydns to check DNS), but not any
that it has to go to the ISP provider's DNS to get the IP address for. The
router only stores about 8 lookups.
The PC on which I am writing this (my old one) runs Windows XP and is
connected to the same router and ADSL link. It runs fine and will connect
anywhere. The only difference I have noted is that XP gets an IP address of
192.168.1.10 through 192.168.1.13 depending on the Ethernet port I use.
Somehow Vista is getting a value of 192.168.1.15 on the same port that XP
reports as 192.168.1.11.
I suspect a setting in Vista is causing the problem. I have tried turning
off all firewalls, resetting the security to lowest possible, turning off
Protected mode. I have also tried using Mozilla Firefox with no more success
than IE 7.
I also tried disabling IPv6 on the Ethernet ... no luck.

Router is Draytek Vigor 2200USB. It has some built-in firewall ability at a
basic level, which I cannot turn off.

Ipconfig looks like:

Re: Network and Internet Problem
sounds like an issue of the router proxying the DNS server. you can
try setting your ISPs DNS servers statically in the configuration
for the Vista NIC (unless your router has a setting to not proxy
DNS, in which case the ISPs DNS servers will automatically be used
by all computers).
