Sometimes you might encounter slow connectivity problems or some other issues with the internet connectivity that can be solved simply by resetting your Wireless internet connection. In Windows Vista, any issues with wireless internet connectivity can mostly be resolved by resetting the wireless connection. The process of resetting the connection is in fact very simple and involves disconnecting from the wireless connection and reconnecting it after a second. Once you have disconnected from the network, you won’t be able to access the internet unless you reconnect it.
If reconnecting the wireless still doesn’t solve your Microsoft problems, then follow a similar process with the network adapter. The following guidelines will help you resolve the Microsoft problems by resetting the internet connection in Vista.
