Unable to connect to internet on vista via wireless router

Ok I've got a sony vaio laptop on vista, I've got the ethernet cable from my modem going into the wirless router (which is plexus a adsl2 + gateway) now i'm able to connect to the router ok, but if you hover over the status it says local only and im unable to access anything on internet.

I've followed the guidelines on the cd that came with it and connected to router, and done everything it says to configure it but same problem. It comes up with the error message "windows tried a repair but the problem still exists, security policy settings on this computer might be blocking the connection, the following policy might need to be adjusted to allow windows to connect, policy provider: windows firewall, filter name:query user

I've gone on several sites and have tried
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
tried turning off firewall and all anti-virus protection
tried resetting tcp/ip to manufacturers settings
i've also gone into windows firewall with advanced security on local computer via admin tools in control panel and domain/private/public profile are all set to windows firewall is on then inbound connections that do not match a rule are blocked, then outbound connections that do not match a rule are allowed

any further sugguestions, i am an IT, but i have very little experience with vista so I am baffled....

Welcome to FixYa! Vista is not access friendly but you will able to see your connection status by clicking on the network connection icon on the taskbar where you will see "Connected to: " and if you click on that a network map will appear. You will see a red "X" between your wireless access point icon and your Internet icon if the access status is "Local only". Clicking on the Internet icon will retry that connection. Make sure that your ip address is not 169.xxx.xx.x as that is Windows little way of saying it can't connect.
If you choose the Diagnose option it will do a release/renew operation automatically. With Vista you must "elevate" access by right clicking on the Command prompt executable and choose "Run as administator" if you wish to do that ipconfig manually.
Also when you are in the firewall configuration select the wireless connection>settings and make sure all of the permissions boxes are checked (ICMP, etc.)
With the adaptor advanced settings make sure your adaptor has the wireless mode (a, b, g, n) at the correct mode.
Have you tried logging on to the router via the Run bar? That is the most informative way to see your router config. Please repost if you need help with that. I also am a network professional certified since 1978 so I know that Vista defies using many tools we took for granted for so many years and often makes me feel frustrated. Maybe Windows 7 will be better as I only run Vista to help others like yourself, though at least you can understand what I am talking about:) Good luck, Steve Medley

This may have something to do with your Internet connection go to IE explorer then when you see diagnose connection do this if that is the case. It should repair the issue or give you an idea as to what is wrong with you Network Connection. If you can access other web sites just not I Tunes it could be that their server is down temporarily this does happen sometimes. If you are on a modem or router you may wish to reset the modem and router to fix the Internet Access issues.

It appears from your question that it has nothing to do with what you are doing just a bad connection back and forth to I Tunes I would try the reset on the modem or router or restart your computer as well. Thanks for using FixYa! John

When i go to update my ipod, it says, network connection timed out, please make sure network connection is correct and active. how do i do that so i can update my ipod?


Go to System Preferences from the Apple icon menu (top left) under the Internet & Wireless section there is a Network icon (glass ball looking thing) click on that. green dot next to ethernet (or wireless whatever one you use) means you are connected. yellow dot means ready but not connected. red dot means not connected.
If you have a red dot next to the connection that you use, check your router or modem. You might have to call you ISP if the problems keep happening.

Hi rebeachiii36,
Please try disabling any firewall, anti-virus, etc software you may have and try again. This includes most things by Norton, McAfee, and so on. Also, if you are connected via wireless or through a router, try accessing the internet directly via your broadband modem.

After the above, if the movie still gives you this error, please try the following:
Deauthorize your computer, then close iTunes, then open iTunes back up and authorize your computer again.

If the above does not work, It sound to be an incomplete video download. You can go to www.apple.com/support/itunes. Click on "video purchases" under the category Get Customer Service. Then please click on video purchases again. Then to the right side click on "Get Started" button. iTunes Customer Service will assist you from there via email.

Cannot E-mail pictures


You may have to check your internet connections first. Try and browse other web sites to verify internet connectivity. If you tried more than 3 web sites and are getting page cannot be displayed error messages then your internet connection may have been lost. Check your modem or cable connection.

One way to quickly check if you have internet connection is to go to your Windows "run" command box and on the box type "CMD" press enter. Once you type "cmd" inside the "RUN" box and press ENTER. This will "shell" out to a black DOS like screen. Type "IPCONFIG" press ENTER. Look at the "IP Address" and "Default Gateway" if this has a set of numbers ( IP Address) besides 169.0.0.0 or 172.0.0. the you have internet connection. Type "ping yahoo.com " (without the quotes) and press enter. If it comes back with at least 3 lines of "Reply from i.e 206.190.60.37.....etc, etc," theh you have definitely an internet connection

Connecting to Router open diagnostic page and check your Wan connection.
If you do not find it use from same router the ping or trace command to check your Internet connection.
If you cannot get a result check Wan configuration: (PPOE/A Bridge etc) with your ISP (call or read user manual)
if your router is on net but you cannot browswe vrom vaio check if router access list is set: disable it or add your PC MAC address.
