Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
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
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.
