none
No internet connection with Vista 64 bit

    Question

  • Hello

     

    I have some strange problems, and I hope,someone is able to help.

     

    Here is the story:

     

    I have a PC which originally was purchased without OS. I bought Vista Ultimate 64 bit at the same time.

     

    Install went fine, but no I-net conn.

     

    Then I bought 32 bit home premium: Internet worked from day one. I then ordered the 64 bit version of Home Premium, and installed it on HD 2 ( multiboot ). No internet connection !.

     

    System:ASUS P5N-E SLI motrherboard, Intel E6600 Core2Duo CPU. Gigabit Erhernet card, 4 GB RAM. Router D-Link DI4300 gaming router, Internet: DSL.

     

    I have tried to ping the router: no answer or one answer with very long response time. The PC gets the IP from the router allright. I cannot see other PC´s on the home network.

     

    I cannot see the router in the network.

     

    I have tried with and without SP1 RCA of Vista. All drivers and firmware updates has been made.

     

    I have tried to manually setup WINS and DNS. I have tried to disable the Pvp6 TCP service.

     

    A million times tried to repair the conn. reset the network card and so on.

     

    Often the network is on a position of "identifying".....

     

    Of course I have activated Network sharing in the network control panel.

     

    Nothing works - no conn in 64 bit.

     

    What can be wrong???

     

    Thx

  • A new development:

    I tried to enter a USB network card, and then I got internet connection through the router.

    I now think it is my integrated network card, that doesn´t support vista 64 bit.

  • No - I do not think so.

    I think it has something to do with settings / permissions in the 64 bit version, but I cannot figure out where the problem is.

  • I cant help, but I can confirm it is a vista problem only (although some people with vista and same mobo have no problems)

    but to add to the mix

    I have the same setup
    no internet connection
    linux on the same machine has a fully working internet

    i tried setting network negotiation to 100mb full duplex - as auto-negotiation sometimes fails
    I rebooted and it worked fine....
    ...until i rebooted again as it hasnt worked since

    so something is definitely wrong with vista (as linux on the same system works fine)

    no help but hopefully some comfort
