Alot of problems people have is with the odd bit of software causing
errors with networking.
Because users computers contain so many different pieces of software it
is sometimes hard to diagnose problems.
Another problem is the amount of different settings that are buried
around the networking software.
I am glad you managed to sort yours out Vistaowner.
I had a similar problem with my system, I have a main computer using
Vista with a router connected by ethernet cable. The router is wireless.
My laptop is using XP and also wireless.
I tried all sorts, The router could sort of see the laptop and there
was a small amount of wireless traffic going on. It turned out to be a
legacy setting from my previous network that was causing all the
problems. The laptop had a static IP address I forgot about. Once it was
changed back to roaming my whole network came to life.
It is very satisfying when you manage to sort out a problem and get
good results. It also stops the wife kicking me off my main machine when
she wants to use the internet
