Wi-Fi will work on Ubuntu, not on Win Vista

Belkin N150 enhanced wireless router

Specs: Windows Vista, Intel Core2Duo

I have just bought a Belkin N150 Wi-Fi router. After installation, on trying to connect to the Wi-Fi network, the connection goes into a "Limited or No Connectivity" state in Windows Vista. However, I am able to perfectly connect to the network using my Ubuntu boot and all the other Wi-Fi enabled phones.

My internet comes through a cable modem. The ISP binds the MAC to the IP address, so I have to manually request them to release the binding each time I connect the Ethernet modem to a different system. I don't quite know if that is the source of the problem as the Wi-Fi works fine on the other OS, i.e. Ubuntu.

Help greatly appreciated!

have you tried running the install disc of the belkin router to set up everything e.g security etc and maybe then it should work as vista will recognise the router and therefore theoretically should connect and you should be set-to go
