RE: A notebook cannot send a single net package using Vista Buisness
You probably need an updated vista Network Adaptor Driver for your laptop.
Go to toshiba's website, and see if they have that driver for your laptop
Or, right-click on Network Connections> Properties>Untick(unbind) TCP/IPv6.
It is causing probs with some ISPs
