Hello, I'm hoping someone could help me.

I've recently got a new laptop (vista) and for the first few weeks it's connected fine to my internet connection. Last weekend it failed to connect and I can't seem to be able to find the cause of the problem.

I have wired broadband, and I have a router attached so that I can use my laptop wireless.

Initially I thought it was the broadband that had gone down, but my old laptop still connects absolutely fine.

I've tried rebooting the router and the modem as well as the laptop and re-entering the security key. The laptop is connecting to the router but will not go through to the internet. It will connect to somebody else's unsecured connection, but not my own.

I would really appreciate some help.

Thanks

Darc1e.

What version of windows?

Does it connect if you plug it in wired?

Have you removed the security just to test?

Using windows zero config or the software for the wireless card to connect?

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

Hi, it's vista I'm using.

When I plug it in wired, it still says it's only local connection still won't go through to the internet.

I've turned off firewall - that made no difference.

I've tried connecting manually - that doesn't help.

I'm at a loss as to what to do. I'm just glad I'm still able to use my old laptop.

I will assume you are using the same cable to the laptops, switching from old to new.

Go to the Start Orb, All Programs/Accessories and right click the Command Prompt and select Run As Adiminstrator.

Type ipconfig /all and hit Enter.

Your PC is not getting a valid IP. Try doing this

In command prompt type ipconfig /release

Now type ipconfig /renew

Do another ipconfig /all and post the results.

Make sure that your DHCP is running and try as the above post suggests.
