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....

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.

Unable to connect to internet despite connection confirmed


Improve the FixYa experience for everyone by voting.

I'm going to provide you with some generic approaches in an attempt to solve your problem.

First: Microsoft will perform a complete systems check for you in three clicks with their FixIt app. CLICK HERE and Microsoft will fix (repair) any Windows related problems that might be causing your problem.


Second: It is important to connect the modem to the router before you configure the modem in order to verify communication between them. If the cabling is incorrect, the rest of the process fails.

As a rule, external modems are built with a female data communications equipment (DCE) DB-25 port for connection to a controlling device such as a PC or a router

Connecting the modem using the network cable to the wrong port of the router (other than the WAN port) is easy to identify. You can easily troubleshoot the problem. In some cases, you may correctly setup the wireless router connection but you use the wrong cable type in connecting the modem to the router. Cross type UTP cable must be used in connecting the Ethernet port of the modem to the WAN port of the router. But this is not always true. Today, many types of wireless routers (and any LAN Switches) embedded their Ethernet ports (either WAN or LAN ports) with Auto-sensing type port (auto-MDIX LAN). It means that you can use either cross-type or straight-through-type network cable for the Ethernet port connections. The system will detect the cable type and automatically adjust the ports signal accordingly.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

My laptop has vista installed via usb from virgin cable modem.what must i do to install a belkin wireless g mimo router using ethernet connection?


Huh? You installed Vista through your Virgin Cable Modem? What on earth does that mean?

Are you trying to ask "How do I install my Belkin Wireless G Router?"

If that is the actual question, here is the answer:

1) Unplug your cable modem from your computer.
2) Plug the cable modem into the router using a Ethernet Cable.
3) Plug the router into the computer using another Ethernet Cable.
4) Plug in the power supply for the cable modem and then the router.

(If your cable modem is ONLY USB, and doesn't have a spot to plug in a Ethernet Cable, you'll have to call Virgin and replace the modem with a model that does)

Once everything is up and running, you should be on the internet as soon as the computer starts.

(You may want to log into the router and disable the "Wireless" settings if you aren't using them to stop others from gaining entry to your network)

Linksys Wireless-G 2.4Ghz Broadband Router Problem


You have to check if your computer can connect to the modem with an Ethernet cable. This will tell you if the ethernet port on the modem is working. if that does not work call your cable provider.

Next thing after you get the instructions above done.

Press the reset button on the back of the router> press it in for 30 seconds then let go and pull out the power. Connect the router up the way it should be before you reset by the way. check if you have internet if you do not follow hte directions at teh link below.

Can't get internet access!!


The proper procedure in any router based network is to get the router on the network first. Plug it into the online cable modem and boot it up. Let it sit for a minute and then boot up wired computers one at a time. Use one of the wired PC's to get into the routers GUI (eg. 192.168.1.1) and see if WiFi is turned on and the permissions or wireless access is not being blocked by any security settings like MAC address or IP filters. It should be wide open. You dont need ANY drivers for a router on a PC unless they are USB drivers for a USB connection straight to the router, never seen one but I have seen a cable modem/router that had a USB connection. If your laptop has a USB wireless device, you need to load the drivers for that onto your laptop, but if it is using the built in ethernet port on the rear or a PC card ethernet card, you just need to plug the ethernet cable to the rear of the router and boot up. Make sure your ethernet device is enabled in windows and you should be good to go. After you gain access to the internet on the wireless device, get back into your router, prefferably on the wired computer and lock your network down with security measures like MAC address filtering, WEP, or other means.

Vista/router/wireless connection


Make sure that all the wireless cards are set in the properties to obtain an ip address automatically, dissable the wired lan adpter connections as this can confuse the router. Restart all the pc's and then right click on the wireless pc icon in your task bar and then click view wireless networks and make sure that you are connected to your network and that the internet is available, known as local & internet in Vista. open up internet explorer, go to tools, internet options and delete browsing history cookies and temp files and then refresh the page as the proxy server will need to refresh.
