    2 wireless on dsl router - XP connects just fine

    vista connects to router but router doesn't give IP = 169.xxx.xxx.xxx

    device manager shows 2 network adapters wired & wireless

    Manage adapters under Network & Sharing shows no adapters.



    WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    I spent an hour on phone with AT&T and it is not in the router

    no security on router

    no MAC filtering

    everything was reset, released, renewed, rebooted, ....

    brand new wireless adapter/vista drivers installed - it should not even connect to router if drivers were bad.

    I suspect if I connected a cable to the router it would not work either since that adapter does not appear under Manage Adapters either.



    System has never been connected to the router wired or wireless.



    where to go from here??
