have you got the correct drivers for your ethernet card in vista?
 
yea drivers ok
can ping in dos from cmd prompt and run tracerts.

just cant do any thing else its weird.
Iv got a proper ntl ip assigned on net work card and all seem fine but no http

boot back in xp and everything working iv tryed swaping network cards as well still no luck as there are two on mothrboard and one in a pci slot.
every thing in ipconfig looks ok too

If you are able to get ip from modem via DHCP, your networking side seems ok. Can you ping 192.168.100.1, try www.bbc.co.uk from commandline.
If you can ping bbc seems like it might be the security settings or something on IE7, and try disabling the phishing filter cus its a huge pain sometimes. Also try checking the windows firewall hasnt gone mental...

Oh another idea..
Boot into xp and download firefox and try on vista..Will bypass ie7's crazy crap.
 
i can ping from comand line fine ill try sticking firefox on a dvdr
iv turned off firewall in vista
 
theres a few of us on there that have gone back to xp because of the network problems with vista u only need a slight driver problem and thats it , u only need to install a program that installs its own drivers like image drive software and vista goes to pot , l gave it a week and thats was it , wireless problems , networking , and connection speeds . in one its crap . will wait till the sp1 comes out and see it that sorts the problems. its was great to get xp back on
 
T4i iv tryed diret ip addresses so dont seem too be a dns problem.

thing im comeing to same cultivation as smirnoff.

VISTA SUCKS BIG TIME I think ill format the partition and carie on with xp
 
Lol m8 disable uac for a start by going to run & doing msconfig and its under tools (look for disable uac) Oh and turn off windows firewall i had the same problem :).
 
ive gone back to xp i hate vista, now i have the vista pack for xp and it looks pretty similar. Had too many problems with vista
