Guys, I recently installed windows vista home basic on my home PC but just not able to connect to the internet. Not very familiar with connection settings on vista. I have a BSNL broadband connection. This is working fine on my XP(Its a dual boot). I have tried lot of steps googling around, and while setting up the connection it would ask me for username, password provided by the ISP. Even after giving that, i am not able to setup the connection. Can please anyone help me out to do this?Also, I have a compaq presario V6608AU notebook which is preloaded with Vista. I installed XP on it and since then, it just picks up XP on boot and am not able to dual boot. Does anyone have a "tried and tested" setup or link to audio drivers for XP for this notebook model? I have tried most of the drivers which we can get through google search. But none of them works.F1 F1.cheers,bhavin

Step1.Go to filehippo.com - Download Free Software
filehippo.com Update Checker - filehippo.com

step2.Download the program drivers update.
step3 It will give you a complete list of the drivers you need with location/s.
step4 : update.
Para two :
For vista : start/network/Lan/properties/T/IP properties / Disable IPV6 . This has been suggested in forums. I don't have Vista.
Para three: ALWAYS MENTION MODEM MODEL ROUTER MODEL, IF ANY USED.

Hey thanks. I shall try this URL. I guess for the presario V6608AU model, compaq/HP do not support XP. I shall give it a shot. I was successfully able to connect to the Internet from Vista.. yippee :yahoo:I just disabled the network and provided the IPv4 address, subnet mask and gateway which i was using on XP. Any more information to get the drivers for V6608AU model of presario notebook running windows XP would be great.Thanks a ton in advance. cheers,bhavin

Disabling ipv6 will solve ur problems. I am on Vista ultimate and i would suggest u to avoid PPPOE dialer connection and instead, use the PPPOE setup in the router itself .
And for dual boot, u have to use third party boot editors from vista . Vista dont support the traditional boot loader type booting. So you have to add additional boot options from Vista boot menu.

I use Vista Boot pro..
