No broadband connection.


Since you successfully have connected the Vista system to the router, it is the router that is blocking access. Has the router been configured to allow only a short list of unique MAC-addresses to be able to access the Internet?

If you use a cable to DIRECTLY connect the Vista system to the cable-modem (or DSL-modem), and then power-off/power-on that modem, and then restart the Vista system, do you get Internet access?

I cannot get access to WIFI. It reports an error. I have never been able to access WIFI since day of purchase. I would like to use it the Netbook but I can't. At first it was asking for server,...


WIFI is wireless internet service. You can use WIFI on your netbook to get on the internet. You can also use a corded connection like an ethernet cable to accomplish the same thing.

In order to use WIFI, you need to access to the account that is providing it. There are many ways to get access to wireless internet service. Some places have "WIFI hotspots" and if you are in range your netbook can pick up the signal by clicking on the little button marked "wireless" (or look for the picture of the wireless antenna) to have it search and connect. Places that include wireless hotspots or free WIFI are Starbucks, and local colleges or Universities. You can purchase your own wireless internet service from any local provider like Version or Charter Cable. Make sure to ask for a DSL modem with a wireless connection built in when you order service. Your account name and password are listed on the bottom of the modem and/or router. If you are unsure of which ones to use, call your provider for more details.

Wireless hot spots usually do not require passwords. Just click the wireless button to pick up a signal on the front of your netbook and follow the prompts on the screen to connect.

I would suggest purchasing your own connection instead of tyring to find an unsecured (no password protection) network that belongs to a neighbor to try and use theirs. The cost is approx $ 25 - $ 30 per month. Check with your local telephone provider for the deals available in your area.

I have an Acer Aspire6930 and a Belkin router. My internet connection will be fine for an hour, but then it craps out and says "local only" or "limited connectivity". However, all the other laptops using...


u mean to say, u r using wireless for internet access right.
Well if u r using XP, and if u r having some trouble in accessing internet, then there might some problem with the components of wireless card. so if u want to fix them, u can fix them with a simple trick.
Go to My Computer's Properties
Go to device manager,
open the tab named NETWORK ADAPTER.
u'll see ur wireless adapter listed. select it & select Uninstall.
Dont worry, just continue reading.
when u click on uninstall, u'll be asked whether u r sure to remove the device from ur computer, meanwhile u'll be given a marking space named UNINSTALL THE DRIVER FOR THIS HARDWARE.
Dont remove the driver, simply uninstall the wireless adapter.
Now its removed.
Now restart ur system, after it starts ur computer shows a ballon named, NEW HARDWARE FOUND and it will automatically install ur wireless adapter,
So ur wireless adapter is fixed by now.


and if u r using Vista, its quite easy there.
go to NETWORK & SHARING CENTRE
go to NETWORK CONNECTIONS u'll find 2 connections.
one will be named as Wireless something.
ENABLE it & click DIAGONISIS
after its completed, select RESET ADAPTER
Its done.

Hope it worked u out.
Thanks..

Internet disconnection on hp dv 6500


When the internet connection goes down what does your network and sharing center say the status is? does it says access: local and internet? or does it say access: local only?
do any other pcs have this problem on your network?
if this is the only pc having this issue the best thing to do is contact Vista support while you are still under warranty so they can troubleshoot the issue further... more than likely simply need to update the drivers for the network connections... this is a known issue they have had in the past... its not your ISP if all other pcs are fine... its just one of the lovely side affects of Vista..
GOOD LUCK!!!

Wireless network is not connect to local network


I am bit confused with your query.  Its not possible to connnect wireless with local network.  Or what you can do is use wireless router so that ur laptop detects the service and you can access internet.

Dell 3300 Printer Adapter and Vista


Vista is tricky when adding networked printers.  
Add printer by using a local device, not a networked device.  Assume the printer is connected locally to the machine.
