I am having problems trying to access the internet on a PC running vista that is also used s an AS/400 terminal. Supposedly the IT guy at work says it can't be done and we will have to wipe vista off and install XP instead. the AS/400 is tied in to the LAN port and I am trying to access internet through a USB Wi-Fi adapter. I am getting a connection through Wi-Fi but the web browser won't display any web pages, error "cannot display web page", yet it is sending and receiving packets. The only clue I have to the problem is something to do with DNS or possibly Norton Firewall. After disabling Norton I was able to send and receive packets but still cannot get the browser to display any webpages. Any help here?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It all depends on what type of Vista you are trying to use. This <a href=”http://www-912.ibm.com/n_dir/nas4apar.nsf/51d11a683a56a5cc862564c000763b23/ad5ed8d2f4bc2f598625722f0041ec19?OpenDocument&Highlight=2,ii14239″>Informational APAR</a> put out by IBM should help you out.

Like Bruce says, it depends on what version of Vista – also depends on what version of iSeries Access, assuming you are running that.

But, I’m not really sure what your problem has to do with having software for an “AS/400 terminal”. Your question relates to using a browser connecting to the internet through a wi-fi connection. Do you also have a LAN connection on this PC?

Make sure that the Gateway setting on your WiFi connection is set correctly. If you believe it is a DNS setting error <a href=”http://www.tech-faq.com/public-dns-servers.shtml”>here</a> is a list of public DNS servers.
Good Luck!
