internet connectivity issues
Recently I installed windows vista ultimate 64 bit onto my computer. Previous
to this I had windows vista ultimate 32. My problem is, now that I have
windows vista ultimate 64 bit installed I've lost internet connection to my
computer. (Anyone who lives on the internet like myself, knows this is a
definite problem.) I still have connection to every other computer in my
house, so my guess is that it's not a network problem.(though it may be in a
sense) I have my computer connected to a router via ethernet cable. I never
unplugged anything in the process of installing windows vista ultimate 64bit.
So, basically anyone who could give me any suggestions and/or directions on
getting my computer to recognize my connection and network, I would greatly
appreciate it.

Thank you

Re: internet connectivity issues
Can you ping a web site, for example chicagotech.net? If yes, make sure you
are running IE 64 bit. Or this post may help. Please post back with the
result.

Vista 64-bit IE issue

Windows Vista Ultimate 64 - Net MIA and apps crash
Apparently that option which I use opens the 64-bit version of the browser.
I tried running that manually and it works normally...

RE: internet connectivity issues
1. If I was you, I would be looking at the Network Adaptor in my computer.
Have you been into Device Manager to see if it is supposedly working properly.
You will have to find a 64 bit Driver for it, and enable it.

2. Is the router's Firmware up to date?
