      Question Wireless not working with Vista

      Hi all,

      I've just got a new Acer laptop that runs Vista business. I can run the internet fine if the ethernet cable is plugged in but not wirelessly even though it tells me its connected and the signal is at 93%.
      I've tried using a combination of the tips offered for XP and tweaked them as best I could to Vista but still no joy.
      Does oanyone have a step by step gude that they went through to get wireless working on Vista or just any help at all really.
      Thanks for your time.

      P.S I can get the internet wirelessly through a neighbours connection that has no security so i went in to 192.168.0.1 and selected no security but still no joy.

      Sounds like same problem I had way back in march managed to get the dam wireless to work at long last on my Vista laptop

      just went in router set up and clicked on Wireless Station Access List, noticed for the first time that in the Available Wireless Stations box it was showing an unknown device with a MAC address, clicked add and then turned on wireless device and it connected.
