On the back of the router is a small reset switch.
Press this in (with a pen or other small object) and hold for a few seconds.
Have you tried connecting the computer directly to the modem?

The only reason I have not reset the router is because I have multiple (10+) connections going, and it would be a pain the --- to reconfigure them all.

I have tried hard-wiring, and yet the problem persists.

You have 10+ computers connected to your router?
Then this is a commercial network?
Sorry, I thought that you where a home user.
Can you tell me a little about your network?
What kind of business is it?

Sorry for the confusion, but it is a home network.

The connections are 4 computers, 2 wireless game systems and then 2 PDA/Cell phones. I think i exaggerated that a bit :).

EDIT: Also, I didn't mean to imply that all connections are 24x7. My bad on that as well.

I'm fairly certain its a Vista issue. I've contacted Toshiba, my ISP, and Linksys and they all have concluded that its a software issue. Toshiba (as usual) is no help, so I'm assuming that after I backup all my data and software, I'll reinstall.

I just wish that Microsoft had incorporated a "system repair" type system (like in XP where it reconfigures the required files). Another reason why I'm not a big fan of Vista.

Btw: Xinder, if you find a solution, please definately let me know.

Are you also using a 64-bit OS?

I have an HP laptop and a desktop with a 32-bit OS.

There's nothing wrong.

This problem might be only for the 64-bit.

I'm running a 32-Bit.

Indeed you may have 32-Bit Vista's running, but I think that this issue has something to do with some common software or configuration that has been altered.

What did you do before the issue was presented on your 64-Bit?

The toshiba is brand new man. Right out from the box.

The first thing I do is connect to my wireless network, and didn't work.

I plugged the ethernet cable, still nothing.

When I diagnose the problem, I get:

1. Realtek ethernet driver or hardware problem blah blah blah...

2. Make sure internet protocol bindings are correct.

3. Atheros driver or hardware problem blah blah blah...

I'll just return this to bestbuy tomorrow and get a new one.

I don't wanna spend time troubleshooting this.

I'll leave this to microsoft's hands.
