I was temporarily using windows vista to manage my network connections. How do I switch back to start using access connections again?

first of all make sure, that you have following apps installed:
- Power Management driver
- Power manager
- system interface driver
- Hotkey utility
- Now go to windows services and restart the two Access Connection services
- once this is done you should be fine in working with Access Connection and enable the Location switching to be sure, that the network locaitons will swithc automatically.
In case there should be any issue with this, then just uninstall Access Connection, reboot the machine and install Access connection back again. This will reactivate the Access Connection.
NOTE: in case you want to use the latest verison of AC, then you must have the latest WIFI driver installed 13.xx
Let me know if there should be any issue with this.

The problem was that Microsoft's profile for the network I was attaching to was set to 'automatically connect'. Once I set the profile to 'manual' and disconnected from the network, Access Connections allowed me to attach to the network. I discovered this late last night and did not have a chance to update this thread. Thanks for the speedy reply.
