i just bought a new computer and am unable to connect to the internet through the WLAN
originally i had probs with the network card but we got a new one and it can see the network fine and connect to it but shows local only.
i moved the computer and hardwired it to the router and it can connect fine so it seems to me as it is some setting with the wireless or vista 64bit.
there is another computer in the house running vista 32 bit that has no problems at all connecting to the network
as well as another laptop that was sitting in the room where this computer used to be that connects fine as well.
the router is an alcatel speedtouch pro
and the access point is a belkin
and the network card is linksys
the wireless network card was able to connect to the WLAN at the shop that we bought it at after they installed the 64 bit drivers
i am reasembly novice when it comes to networking.
however i do know my way around a computer well
what it does is connect to the network and identifies for a while and then seems to connect fine but only allows local access
please can someone give me some things to try to get this working
any help is greatly appreciated.
(sorry if i was a bit all over the place)
this is the network connection details
