    Just installed Windows 7 over Vista on Sony Vaio notebook. Turns out that the networking does not work. Routing tables etc are ok; I can ping arbitrary hosts on internet and on my LAN, however all www connections (with Firefox as well as IE) are dead -- both in LAN as well as on the internet. So I guess it has something to do with packet filtering or firewalls. So I turned off all firewalls etc. Still not working. Also telnet to LAN-hosts is inoperative.

    My Linuxboxes and Macs are working flawlessly... Any suggestion?

    Hello and welcome to the windows7forums,

    An upgrade is not the route to take. It leaves useless files on your system and can cause conflicts. (as you ere experiencing)

    Save all you Documents, Pictures, contacts, videos, music, etc to a flash drive,

    Be aware, you will need to re-installable your 3rd party applications.
