Abnormal networking issue Tags: LAN Networking Windows Vista Last response: December 31, 2010 12:57 PM in Networking Share fitzy0308 December 30, 2010 10:34:54 PM ok ive got a networking issue in windows vista.. but its beside the ordinary. the drivers are fine, they tell me theyre fine, theyre in there, theyre not disabled in the bios or anywhere.. the computer can see other wireless networks.. in network connections there is no sign of issue, everything seems as though it should work theres nothing wrong with the hosts file theres no proxy blockage the ipv4 and ipv6 configurations are how they should be (set to automatic) hijack this cannot find anything out of the ordinary autoruns cannot find anything out of the ordinary that would be blocking this there are no rogue processes there are no rogue services, and all services that should be on are on netsh winsock reset isnt doing any help.. its not a hardware issue because the ubuntu trial disk can access networks and the internet.. its definately something in vista stopping the network from connecting but i dont know what all i know is that when i try to connect to one of the networks that the wireless sees, it accepts the password and it cannot connect and when i plug in an ethernet cable, the lights on either side of it light up, but the computer shows no responce otherwise.. the network connection doesnt seem to activate to the fact its connected. anyone got any ideas??
