    Hi I have a 2 wire wireless gateway. Standard story works well with 2 other
    wireless Xp machines I have in my home. Works fine when connected directly
    in the the gateway. It looses connection with the internet using the
    wireless connection during browsing. a page will load fine then the next
    link says page can not be displayed.

    runnin vista home premium.

    Have you applied the Vista compatibility, performance, and reliability fixes?

    Do you have the latest drivers for your WiFi adapter, obtained from the vendor?

    Hi Chuck appreciate the reply I tried the 2nd link from the KB says does not
    apply to my system. I looked over 2 wire website cant find a driver update.
    I posted the question on 2wire.com. System is only about 2 weeks old.

    OK, that's where we start, so now we move on. Let's diagnose the "It looses
    connection with the internet using the wireless connection during browsing. a
    page will load fine then the next link says page can not be displayed." problem
    description. When you get "... page can not be displayed.", what do you do to
    recover? Or does the problem go away, on its own?

    I'm thinking either a DNS or MTU problem fits the problem, here. Depending upon
    the pattern of the problem - how often does the problem come up, and how do you
    recover?

    Re: Re: 2 Wire with Vista connection problems

    I have had the same problem. Same gateway and vista. Changed the MTU to 1452 on the wireless interface to get it working.

    1. using windows explorer, goto windows/system32 and select cmd.exe
    2. right click on it and choose run as system administrator
    3. Type in the following command

    netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface "Wireless Network Connection" mtu=1470 store=persistent

    Note: If you want to first test if it works, use the above command without the last option (store=persistent).

    Hope that solves the problem.
