Hello everyone!

Yesterday, I finally received my long awaited new hard drive for my Toshiba Satellite laptop after the old one died about 3 months ago. Everything went smooth, I installed Vista again, and everything seemed fine. Until I tried connecting to my wired D-Link DI-604 router. I followed the manual's instructions exactly, plugged everything in correctly, restarted and my XP desktop fired right up. But when I tried to connect my Vista laptop to the router, it tries to connect, but I hover over the network icon in the task bar and it says "Access: Local Only" I searched for at least 2 hours last night trying to find a solution, but found nothing. I even tried chatting with my ISP, but they had no idea what they were talking about.

What am I supposed to do? I've tried the following:

-Restarting numerous times
-Disabling UAC
-Disabling the firewall
-Disabling Automatic Updates
-Disabling IPv6 by unchecking the box in Network Properties
-Changing plugs on the router
-Power cycling the modem

I don't have a 3rd party firewall like Norton, since I've read those cause problems.

Any help is greatly appreciated! :thumbsup:
