I'll give that a go as soon as Vista finishes updating on the other system. 
btw, this one's ip on my network is
No worries re the delay. Gmail is giving me probs with sending periodically so

Well. Vista has updated and I've rebooted into ubuntu. Tried adding 
mygateway1.ar7 as outined above and got the unknown host response sadly. The is obviously the addy for my router (D-Link DSL-G604T). I can't ping 
it from any of my other systems nor can it ping the others or access the 
router webpage

I agree with you in seeing the gateway not being setup the same for some
