    Vista Beta 2 installed fine. However, I having a problem when I am connecting
    to my home wireless connection. It says it connected and get IP from DHCP and
    such but I can only connect to the internet brieftly then it stop and say
    having a problem.

    Config:
    Router/Wireless: Linksys
    Type: 802.11G only
    Encryption type: WPA2-Personal
    SID: Not broadcast

    I tried uninstall other stuff in the stack and disable IP6. Stop IPSec
    related services and Windows Firewall. it still dropping my connection.

    Anyone has the same problem?? Any workaround would be great!

  3. Might be a silly question - but did it work OK with previous builds or
    previous OS's?
    And is your antenna or computer in relatively good range of the wireless
    router?

    Thanks :eek:)

    Hi, Andre

    I just dit. Here is my description

    ------------

    After successfuly create a new "wireless network connection", when you first
    click "connect" to the newly created wireless network. It connects directly
    without any problem. (I can browse the web) However, a minute or two later my
    IE reports that it cannot connect to the website. The icon at the notication
    tray is still saying it connect. But when i click to the icon it say it
    connect as "Local Only" (From my computer to network) the graphic display an
    'X" across the link to the internet. I tried to "repaire" it. It doesn't
    work.

    Let alone connect to the internet, connection to my local LAN is dropping as
    well. When I tried to copy a file (15MB) on the network to my laptop. I
    stopped like 5% into the process.

    There is NO change in my wireless network configuration as it works fine in
    my other laptop running windows xp sp2.

    What I did to try to fix before reporting this:
    - Uncheck: QoS, IP6, and a few other "discovery service" stuff (I have only
    IP4/Wifi/Windows Client/file sharing checked)
    - Stop Services: Base filtering engine (IPsec and Windows Firewall also stop)
    - Reboot
    - Still drop the connection

    Router type: Linksys WRT54G version 2.0
    Network type: 802.11g only
    SID: not broadcast
    Authentication/Encryption: WPA2-Personal with AES

    Laptop: Toshiba M3
    Wireless Adapter: Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG (driver comes with OS)

    Hi, Zach

    I didnot change any wireless network configuration in router. It works fine
    on my other laptop with XP SP2 with the same wireless setting.

    I vaguely recalled that it seem to work fine under February CTP.

    I take 2 laptop sitting side-by-side signal is strong.
