Network problem when using Windows Vista
Having just installed windows vista, I guess the problem here could be that you have not installed the network drivers yet.
Use the following method to try and install drivers from a directory on your computer:

In case that does not work, then download the drivers from the internet and install them.
Hope this helps.
