I just got a new laptop with Vista but I can't connect to the internet. Vista asks for the ISP details. My problem is exactly the same as the one discussed here - Vista asking for internet password when it shouldn't
With the other systems (mac, xp) you just need to plug in the internet cable and then your internet works. You don't need to do any configurations at all.
When you plug in the cable to vista, nothing happens. There's no automatic internet connection.
So, we go into "create internet connection", where there's three options: Wireless, PPPoE and dialup.
All three of them require a login, with a username and a password, which isn't needed at either mac or xp.
So, is there another way to connect? Why won't it "just work" like on the other systems? Why does vista decide that our internet service require login, which we don't have?
Does anyone know a solution?
