    It depends on your ISP, have they provided you with a setup disk?

    Who is your provider, and have they furnished you with equipment to connect to the internet, like a router?

    Have you been able to connect to the internet before?

    What type of internet connection do you have; dial-up, cable, dsl?

Your modem is fine but ISP is not providing your proper connection settings like dynamic IP address and default gateway etc...

Power on the machine, keep pressing F8 so that you enter into safe mode,
after logging on try uninstalling webroot. If successfully uninstalled, try using AVAST the free version, its far much better than webroot.

My computer shows "local" connection only - why is that?

could be a number of reasons 1) The router has not been setup correctly - log back into the router and check all the details User manual here
2) Login to the router and see the status page and if that is showing connected also look at the lights on the front of the router and see if connected WAN Light make sure the cable from the modem is connected to the WAN port and the lights on the modem are correct
3) On the PC make sure that the firewall is not blocking access disable any firewall
if this does not solve the issue post back the following
[b]{ipconfig /all}[/b] If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results here -> Start -> [i](XP - enter the following in the RUN box)[/i] [b][color=blue]cmd /k ipconfig /all[/b][/color] -> [i](Vista or Windows 7 - enter the following in the Search box)[/i] [b][color=blue]cmd /k ipconfig /all[/b][/color]
A black box will appear on the screen - rightclick in the box select all enter control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and control key + V to paste [b]------------------------------------------------------------------------[/b]

Connecting to network

[QUOTE]The exact error message should be:
"Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you
on to the network [SSID]"
Google shows 37 hits with this exact phrase.
This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of
WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.
Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it
will work.[/quote]
