Vista 64-bit still has some bugs to work out, but your problem may be add-ons that aren't compatible with a 64-bit OS. You can reset the Internet Explorer settings by going to START, then CONTROL PANEL, in classic view go to Internet Options and clicking on the ADVANCED tab. At the bottom of the box, you'll see a reset button. Click that. When its finished see if you can get on the internet with Internet Explorer. If you can, I would uninstall and reinstall Firefox. If not let us know.

Thanks for reply. I tried resetting IE and still no luck. If I go into the command console I can ping my router/modem but I cannot contact it with the browser by typing in the 192.168.0.1

When I check network managment and click on diagnose it says nothing wrong it is connected. It is connectd but the browsers dont work. I am now going to try reinstalling Fire fox
