    I am using a seimens 567 router that has wireless built in since about 6
    months ago. I was using a linxsys router prior to that. I have been using
    wireless since Mar 2007. about 2 months ago after upgrading vistais when
    problem began.
    The problem: I lose internet access after I turn my laptop off. It works
    fine if I reboot the router before I want to use the internet again. The
    router remembers the computers that were logged in the last time, even if
    they are turned off, but no ip address.
    Both the computer vendor, Acer, and microsoft want money to help you with
    the problem.
    I'm told it is solveable by fixing registry, but can't get the solution.
    I believe it is a Microsoft problem since it worked fine before I upgraded
    my Vista SW. My sons Laptop XP system has no problems on this network.

    Check the router's manufacturer's website to see if there is updated vista
    compatible firmware available for the router.
