I have bought my first Vista based laptop to replace my XP pro laptop.
Currently I cannot get the Vista machine to browse the internet although it
has connected to my Windows Server 2003 domain and wireless network without
The IP range is: 192.168.11.xxx
The server IP is: 192.168.11.1
The gateway IP (internet access) is: 192.168.11.3
To get all my other PC's (including the Server 2003) to browse the internet
I added a default gateway (Network Properties \ TCP/IP \ Advanced \ Gateway)
to the TCP/IP network protocol. This has worked for my domain connected XP
laptop (Via wireless network) my server (Directly plugged into the access
point) and my 'home pc' (XP) (directly plugged into the access point but not
part of the domain).
I have noticed there is another gateway specified when I run IPCONFIG on the
vista machine (192.168.11.1 - the server IP address). I have added the
192.168.11.3 gateway IP address and set the metric to 1 so that it shows
first under IPCONFIG in both the wireless connector and the cabled (LAN)
I have also disabled the IPv6 protocol.
The firewall is switch off.
I can ping the gateway (192.168.11.3)
I can also administer the gateway via the web browser (http://192.168.11.3
Can anybody suggest something I might have missed?
