Having read and worked through over 40 messages on this board, I still do not
have my issue resolved. Some one needs to fix this issue up there in Seattle.
We all are having to do way to much work to connect to our previous
functioning home network. I contacted WINDOWS VISTA Support who refered me to
DELL support who couldn't help me! All I want is some one to own this problem
and FIX IT!
Please review my network and PC setup below and please tell me what I can do
to have full access to my home network like I was able to with all my other
PCs running WIN XP.
I have a 2 day old Dell Inspiron Laptop(LT) Fully loaded with all the gadgets.
I removed the mcaffee Firewall and AV software and restarted pc.
Windows Vista Premium Edition.
Connected to the internet through Wep enabled WAP/connected to a router.
ALL PCs/LapTops(LT), WAP, & Router have static IPS.
I have no problem connecting to the internet with my VISTA PC.
2 Desktops and 2 wireless laptops connect to the same workgroup name.
(all PCs see eachother except the VISTA LT)
I can connect to the WWW no problem. I can Ping my WAP, Router, Media PC,
but can not ping my kids PC from my VISTA LT.
All other XP PCs can do everthing to all PCs but can not see my Vista LT.
ANSWERS to previous QUESTIONS.
1. Firewall on each pc - is the ip addresses of the other pc allowed (YES)
2. Router/each pc - If wireless is the correct encryption passkey in use
