Now I wish to use the laptop in wireless connection mode but will only give me a partial connection and no internet access. reapply the cable connection and its perfect.

Hi,

Initially, try assigning static IP address to the WiFi card of the Vista laptop. Further disable WEP or WPA security at least during the initial stages of configuration. You may need also to instruct Vista to connect to your WiFi even if it is unsecured.

In some other instances, the WiFi networking device may want to use its proprietary configuration rather than the built-in to Windows.

Pls post back brand and model of the new laptop (with Vista) as well as the wireless networking device attached to it.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post backas requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Do your router modem got a wifi wire? or does it capable on wireless connection. try to use a windows xp not vista. it must be the problem. or configure it manually on your wireless connection in control panel. hope that helps!

I need to set up my IP provided WiFi router-modem (Westell 327M) for use with my two laptops, such that the router-modem provides me internet access via ethernet cables (not interested in the WiFi aspect of the router modem).
