    Something is wrong with Vista... I can get online just fine when I'm plugged into the network, and my wifi will connect to a network, but it says "local only"... home and school both say this, and they never used to. My roommates can get online here just fine. Its like something is blocking my wifi from getting on the internet, but not from connecting to the network. Help :help:
     
  2. Vista is what's wrong with your computer. I had to delete that EFING program off the last two computers I bought. Who ever developed that should be drawn and quartered.

    You probably need updated drivers for your wifi card.. I've had that problem on a Vista laptop before.

    Are you connecting to the correct network? Maybe your card picked up a rogue signal?

    Yep.. its the weirdest thing, I unplug from the hardwire and it says "connected to MSHOME" which is the name of my network, but it is local only... no internet. Same thing at school, local only, where I used to be able to get online from there as well.

    Go to Network Connections, then click repair and diagnose. My wife has the same issues and it's due to her firewall program (Trend Micro). I disabled that and it works fine.

    Let us know how fenderhutz suggestion turns out. I've worked through this problem on other OS's besides Vista.

    What is your security software?
     
  15. Sometimes in Vista you need to change your network adapter configuration due to NIC chipset incompatibility issues.
    You could try to set IPv4 Checksum, TCP Checksum Offload (IPv4 & IPv6) & UDP Checksum Offload (IPv4 & IPv6) all to DISABLED and see if that helps.

    Run an IPConfig/All and let us know the results.
