Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

1 Answer

Internet Troubles When I try to connect to the internet with any network other then NETGEAR it says that my connection is 'local only' (as opposed to 'local and internet'). What I found is that that means I cannot go online whatsoever. How do I make my connection always 'local and internet'? I'm using a Windows Vista Premium Thanks, Phil, PS-I think NETGEAR works because I set it's zone to public instead of home.

    What other network connection are you speaking of; USB. Firewire, Wireless, etc.
    Other than your Netgear Network Adapter or Router?

    Note: There is a known bug in Windows Vista SP1 where it says you are not connected, when you are able to browse. It affects getting updates and network applications. This affects both wired and wireless connections.

What does the LAN do on the modem


There are two halves to a router. The internet (WAN) side a local network (LAN) side.

The term WAN means Wide Area Network and generally refers to the internet.

The term LAN means Local Area Network. That would be for the computers that are in your office or home.

The LAN connects your computer to your printers or to other computers.

I hope that answers your question!

If the cables supplied have RJ45 connectors then they are used for connecting and configuring the wireless settings in Netgear router and to connect the Netgear to the DSL modem foe Internet access.
Most likely the color of the cables is not important.
To configure the wireless settings, connect a cable from one of the LAN ports (not the WAN/Internet port) to the LAN port on your computer. You may remove this cable after configuring the wireless settings if you want to connect to the Netgear by wireless only. You need to connect other computers to the Netgear's LAN port with a cable if they do not have wireless cards installed in these computers.

The other LAN cable is used to connect the Netgear WAN/Internet port to the DSL modem so you computers can connect to the Internet via the Netgear router.

Follow these instructions to configure the Netgear router.

Since the connection works without the encryption settings, it is NOT a driver issue. It sounds like a missing wireless network security setup problem. So assuming Windows (Mac OSX is similiar):

  1. Connect a laptop/PC to the NetGear via ethernet. It saves on some aggravations later.
  2. Connect to the NetGear and restore the security settings, and remember your keyword.
  3. On your computer, open the list of Wireless Networks (usually Start->Control Panel->Network(ing)->Wireless Networks). The menu sequence might differ slightly, depending on which Windows you're running.
  4. Find and click on "Manage Wireless Networks" (or words to that effect)
  5. Right click on your wireless network's name to get the drop down menu, and select "Properties"
  6. Find a button or tab related to "Security"
  7. Under Security Type, select WPA2-PSK (or Personal)
  8. Under Encryption Type, select "AES"
  9. Under Password (or Security Key), type in your router's WiFi security key word. You may have to log back into the NetGear and find the keyword (yours) or the alternate (gibberish) form.
  10. Save the settings
  11. If you're connected to that wireless network, then disconnect
  12. Try connecting to the wireless network again. It should work this time.

Are you trying to install the router ?
Check the status of the network connection.
If the local area connection is disabled then enable it.
Click start . go to control panel. go to network and internet. go to network and sharing center. You will see view network connection. Under that check for the Local area connection.
You can set up the router manually also without the CD.
