I just installed Vista Ultimate x86 and I can't access the internet and local network. My router is a Linksys BEFSR41v4 which is connected to a Motorola SB5101i cable modem. I can't even ping my router (192.168.1.1) I'm using onboard networking in my sig rig mobo (nForce 405 chipset).

Here's my ipconfig /all

Can someone help me set up my networking? I'm very disappointed with Vista so far...

Edit: I've fixed it -- the stock nforce drivers were screwy, and updating the drivers from nVidia's site fixed it.
