First of all, visit this page:
Your router, especially if it is an older model, may not support some of
Vista's networking capabilities. There is a link on that page to download
and run a utility that will test your router to see if it is compatible with
If running the tool points to your router as being the problem, then it's
time for a new one.
Do all of your computers get their LAN IP addresses from the DHCP server on
the router? Are they all set up to obtain their IP addresses automatically?
