Local Access Only, Unidentified Network I bought a Vista back in.I just installed windows vista ultimate on my desktop pc and I can not get it to connect to the internet.This website is a free, open, and dedicated community of Windows enthusiasts.My DSL modem is connected directly to the Ethernet port on my MoBo.
Information reports that the driver is stopped which I assume is not normal.

I can go online with both the notebook and XP with no problem, so the hardware is fine.) The Device Manager in Win7 shows everything is connected and working.
My Gigabyte mobo reported a connection in the bios, what gives.
As the Win7 desktop was loading, I realized I would not be able to connect if the notebook was already connected, so I shutdown the notebook after Win7 had already started.I have tried every solution I could Google (from XP) and nothing works.While I only have a very few Windows...Freaked out, I read all these posts on this forum related to NOT having an internet connection and tried EVERY single one of them with NO success. 3 hours into it, I readied my Win7 RC 7100 disk for a new install with no hair left.
What I had done prior to trying to connect through cat 5 was having it wirelessly connected.My configuration is different but the result is the same, so maybe this will provide some clues for a proper answer.
