Vista and Virginmedia

  prima12 17:06 22 Jul 07

I've just bought a new PC with Vista and have been told by Virginmedia that their setup disc doesn't support Vista, and when I do run the disc it tells me that no ethernet card is connected. They keep telling me that it should see the cvonnection automatically, I'm begining to wonder if the problem is PC internal. Any ideas anybody? P.

Is it that the PC and the modem have to be 'married' before they will work, and if I register my new PC to the modem will my old PC cease to work with the modem? P.

When I changed to Vista I just plugged in the ethernet cable and away I went, I did not bother with re-registering...

I've found out what I was doing wrong. I got my new PC working with my modem by switching the PC and modem off, plugging the modem into the new PC, switching the modem on and then booting up the PC, it then 'sees' the modem and works OK, I reversed the procedure using my old PC and it all worked OK. Thanks for all the answers. P.
