I can connect to my wireless network, but not the internet

Posted: 04-03-2007, 12:32 PM
I have a wireless network which allows 2 PCs runnung XP to connect to the
network and internet. My laptop running Vista will connect to the network,
but as "local only" and will not connect to the internet. The laptop works on
other wireless networks. Any ideas please? Thanks
