I recently switched to Hughesnet gen5 from another provider. All is well except for my wifes desktop computer running Vista. As long as it is hardwired to the netgear router I was using with the previoous provider and the netgear is connected to the modem, all works fine. If I connect directly to the modem, Vista does not recognize the network or able to get to the internet. Reconnecting to the router makes everything work fine. I tried various solutions but not worked. I taked to a tech at BestBuy and he said that it is a driver problem. That Vista does not have the drivers for the new gen 5 modem thus not being able to see the new device and connect out. I wish to be able to connect to the modem so the other computers on the network can see the Vista machine. Thought, ideas or suggestions until I can find a replacement of the software on the Vista machine.
