PC users using Windows Vista, are struggling to connect to the internet with some ISPs as the broadband installation discs are proving difficult to read. Vista seems to be struggling with Virgin Media, Tiscali and Orange along with many others, as the installation discs do not seem to be compatible with the Vista operating system.
It is unknown as yet whether the problems are Vista-based or broadband-based, but the broadband companies are working hard to rectify the situation. So far at least one person has been told by TalkTalk that it will be some months before they will be able to get broadband with them whilst using the Vista operating system.
Orange’s broadband service is not having problems with the installation disc but having problems with the actual service where the modem is recognised and installed but the process is not completed. Orange is apparently working to try and rectify this situation.
If you are wanted to upgrade your service to Windows Vista it may be worth calling your ISP to confirm that their service is compatible with the operating system, or if there are alternative ways of signing on as opposed to installation discs
