    Dear Sir, I have an Asus which I newly purchased and installed the Nokia PC Suite which came with my nokia 6680 mobile phone. I have been using my Nokia as a modem for my laptop running on XP and have no problems with connecting to the internet. I am unable to connect to the internet thru my Nokia on the laptop running Vista. It just gives me a Local Only or Limited Connectivity prompt. I reconnected it to the XP after a couple of attempts to connect thru Vista. With just one click I connected to the internet successfully. Is there something I missed in the installation? I followed everything indicated. A solution to this problem, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. My email add is cha212002@yahoo.com.

Problem in opening the links !


Do you use a router, or are you connecting the modem straight to the laptop?

Does the modem have multiple plugs for computers to plug into (if so, it is functioning as a router as well.?

Do you have any firewall/internet security software installed?

My guess without the above information would be that it is a problem with your DNS setting. Open "Network Connections" and right click on your "Local area connection" and go to properties. Click on the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP" entry and click properties. Be sure that it is set up to "Obtain DNS server address automatically"
