Re: Is wired and wireless connections handled differently by Vista?
Your wireless connection may be of type 'Public Network', that is it thinks
it is connected at a McDonalds for instance. In that case the sharing stuff
is limited to protect your computer.
In Network and Sharing Center, when using the wireless connection, check the
Network connection. You want it to say
"<picture> <name of network> (Private network), if it says public, then
click on the Customize button to change to private.
I have Vista Home premium but only wired connection so I cannot demonstrate
problem on my machine.
