    Running Vista.
    It worked fine the past 5 months.
    It quit around new years must not be Y2K9 compatible or some windows update messed it up.
    Now when I connect it's limited local only - unidentified network
    Even connecting to the neighbors router (no security) same issue.
    I tried reentering the IP manually and WEP passphrase dozens of times.
    Still I'm baffled. I mean it worked before. Things I'm about to try from looking online: new drivers for the wireless card, Change IP address from 212.212.200.25 to 212.212.2.25 (goodguy mentioned Vista can't recognize over 10) http://thevistaforums.com/index.php?show...

    although it did until now.

You haven't given us much information to work with, but I'll take a shot.

As suggested by user marked, you can right click on your Wireless Network Connection (WNC) icon and select "Connect/Disconnect". In the window it brings up, make sure you're connecting to the appropriate SSID (network name).

If you are connecting to the right network there are quite a few different things that can be going on. Try the "Diagnose" option from the right click menu on WNC. When it comes back, it should say you have "Limited or no connectivity" Select the option to "Automatically get new IP settings for the network adapter" This should solve the issue.

If the repair option failed, try the "Reset network adapter" option in the Diagnose window. If it is still failing, the next biggest issue would more than likely point to some security software on your machine. If you are running any software firewall or security suite (Norton/360, McAfee, ComputerAssociates, etc) try disabling the firewall functionality as it may be preventing communication between you and your router.

Again, this solution is very broad as there is little information from the poster. Hope this addresses your issue!

Best of luck

One of two HP laptops connects to network but quit on Internet


did you play with your wireless router settings..?? When it is shown as unidentified, you have most probably set as hide network name . other computers may show up the name if you have saved the network settings on them at least once.

Drivers are fine as they are able to detect the network.

Linksys Wireless-N pci adapter model wmp300n


If it says local or unidentified network that means you are just connected to the router on the network but not through the internet. Try to go to manage wireless network, remover your network there and add it again, connect to your own network and make sure to type the correct network key., then check again. You can also try connecting to other wireless network to further isolate the problem.
