Win7 and Vista don't play well with each other RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello from a new friend:

    A client of mine is having issues with a new laptop.

    She has a desktop running Vista (32 bit) wired connection to the router, and a new Laptop running Win7 (also 32 bit) WiFi.

    They connect to a D-Link router.

    Both machines work fine independently.

    however,

    When I have both machines on, neither can access the internet properly. It is sporadic at best, mostly nothing.

    At first, I thought it was an IP address conflict issue, but the Vista machine is at 192.168.1.100, and the WIn7 is at 192.168.1.103

    I read stuff a while ago about this issue, but cannot seem to find it now.

    Thanks for any help you fine people can offer.

    Mark.

  • Hi,

     

    are you able to grab a DNS entries ?

    possible for you to compare both ipconfig /all

    do check default gateway and DNS.

     

    Try to establish a connection locally using rj45 cable via the modem. If connection does establish for both of your computer, it might be your router issue.
