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.

I have a wireless Netgear router. Everyone around


depending on your type of netgear router, the way you enter the setup is different. I use a netgear router and th emeens of access is to type in your web browser http://routerlogin.com/start.htm

Your internet provider does not have anything to do with your local security settings.

you will need to go to the wireless settings link to choose a security type. I recommend you to use at minimum WPA-PSK(TKIP) You will then choose a pass phrase of 8 characters. This will stop the unauthorized access.
You will be asked for the pass phrase when connecting to your network.
If you need any other help, please just reply.

Im not a techie person so im not sure what to do. For my network connections, it tells me Local Connection 2 is unplugged. How can i fix this. I have an Acer LCD Screen. I have Firefox for my internet, and...


It sounds like your pc has 2 network cards inside of it. If you can get on the internet from that particular pc then you don't need to worry about the second connection being unplugged.

To get rid of the message... "Local Area Connection 2 is unplugged." You would have to plug an ethernet cable into the second network card and then plug it into your router or switch. But... this is not something you want to do unless you have a clear understanding of why you're doing it.

No net connectivity


If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible on the network map, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

To set up Network Sharing between XP and Windows Vista, please note that File and Printer Sharing is different in Windows Vista than from the setup in Windows XP.


On a computer running Windows XP, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Network Connections.
Click Local Area Network Connection, click Properties, and then view the list of items used by the network connection.
Ensure that the Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder check box is selected.

Cant get ps3 connection to internet


First, you need an ethernet cord and of course an aircard. connect one end of the the ethernet cable to your playstation and the other to your laptop. View your network connections (control panel-->network and internet connections-->network connections). Right click on your aircard connection and click properties. On the aircard properties window click the advanced tab. on the tab there will be a box asking if you want to let others connect to this connection. check in that box. below there will be a box asking what the home networking connection is. Put **Local Area Connection** in the box. Last make sure firewall is turned off. On your playstation go to network connections and click easy and go from there. (dont try to put in IP adress or anything just let the playstation do it all automaticly). Test your connection and you should be good to go.

If you would like Windows to try and discover them,
click Detect Network Settings
Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the Help menu and then click About Internet Explorer to determine what strength security you have installed.
If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your Security settings can support it. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section and check settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.
