I can connect Wirelessly and browser/view pages fine on my P.C and a couple of other laptops. However on my Vaio I am having troubles lately where usually I wouldn't. I don't use this laptop often however whenever I open IE it is saying that the page cannot be loaded.

However the Wireless Network Connection is showing as connected fine, but no pages load at all. I can't even get onto my ISP admin from the laptop (192.168 etc) which would indicate it's not conected maybe?

I've tried switching Wireless off and back on, disconnecting and re-connecting and it hasn't had any effect.

Does anybody have any ideas or tests I can do to sort the problem?

Thanks in advance to anybody who can help/

What operating system is this?

Have you tried diagnosing the connection with the Windows troubleshooter? Accessing this varies by operating system. You should be able to right-click the networking icon in the notification area and find the troubleshooter.

Thanks for the reply,

It was XP SP3, although I finally got it working now :)

Somebody had set it up to connect to a proxy funnily enough and hadn't realised it until I ran the diagnostics tool where I saw some proxy related info in the log it created then it clicked!

Thanks for the help.
