Internet connectivity

By bimal_kumar_sanghi ·

I have 3 O/S installed on my computer.

Windows Xp Professional
Windows Vista
Windows 7

I have a broadband internet connection which automatically connects. All I have to do is get into the login page, put my username and password. Then I able to connect to the internet till it times out or I log out.
I can restart and got to either Windows Xp or Windows 7 and there is no need to login again.

The problem is I am not able to connect in Windows Vista.
I can login in Windows Xp or Windows 7 but not in Vista. I get a 169 ip address in Windows Vista. I have powercycled the modem but no use

I have scanned for viruses, malware, spyware and nothing found

Is there any way because I do not want to reinstall the O/S as most of the programs which I do not have backup for are installed in Windows Vista?

Well firstly Vista supports the Repair Option

Just like 7 so you shouldn't need to reinstall the OS.

But here I'm assuming that this did work previously so what did you do to the computer just before it stopped working?

That is the starting point that we need to look at and then work out why it happened so we can come to a conclusion to fix it.

I had a internet connection before from another company called Tata Wimax. They had logged in Windows Vista. They made some changes in the CMD runbox for Telnet (i think) and was using their internet connection. I disconnected their connection because of the slow speeds and bad service. It used to work in Windows Xp and Windows 7 as well if I used to restart and go to that O/S

I have recently taken this connection. First login for Windows Xp or Windows 7 successful.

Does not happen in Windows Vista

I tried the repair option but no go
