After Windows XP, Microsoft Windows made drastic changes to the usual Windows Operating System. Windows Vista is far different when compared to XP, the User Interface, security all are refreshingly different.

If you are a Vista user and facing Vista problems related to security like viruses, spam and hackers, then Sonicwall is a line of hardware and software solutions, which is very handy in protecting your computer against such menaces like viruses and other malwares. Sonic wall is an Internet security solution that can provide protection pretty similar to the firewall already embedded in the Windows Vista operating system. You can troubleshoot your network problems with Sonicwall and Vista. This is done by using an innovative multi-layered approach, which ensures that each network component on your system is performing the way they are expected to perform. Some of the Vista problems would be resolved if you use Sonicwall and Windows Vista in tandem. Here are the instructions to enable the Sonicwall.


  • First of all, what you need to do is, check the cabling on your network devices, and after that ensure that the cables are plugged in and intact.
  • Then, after that, you can unplug your network router, modem and all other network devices. Then, you are required to wait 30 seconds and then plug them back in. After that, you can restart your computer.
  • Then, click on the Start button. You will be able to locate it in the lower-left corner of the computer screen or desktop. Then, you need to type msconfig (without the quotes) in the Search box, and after that press the Enter key on your keyboard.
  • After that, you can click Startup, and then ensure that the Sonicwall program is listed and checked off. Then, you need to check the box next to the Sonicwall entry in case it is not checked, and then click on the Apply button. This will make it sure that Sonicwall is booting alongside your computer.
  • Next, you need to click on the Start button and type Network and Sharing Center (again you should not include the quotes) into the Search box. Then, press the Enter key on your keyboard.
  • Subsequently, select the Manage Network Connections.
  • After that, right click on the network connection that is having problems, and then select Diagnose. This will in turn scan the connection for problems, and resolve them.
