Hi Guys,

I can't connect to the internet with my wireless network adapter all of the sudden, it works fine with a wired connection and the wireless is working fine for the other two flat mates just not mine for some reason.

I tried turning the d link off etc and also the winsock commands from another post I read on here but still won't connect.

Any ideas??

Thanks

Yes I have both wireless and wired connected at the moment, wired is working fine but the wireless just says local, I've had the wireless set up for about 6months and never had any problems.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless software etc as well but still says local only

thanks

Hi there

What happens when you disconnect the wired cable and leave only the wireless? I'm guessing your router is struggling to issue 2 IP addresses to the same machine at the same time.

Also open up a Command Prompt and type ipconfig /all and press Enter then paste the output in here.

Regards

It ended up being a firewall from an update from AVG.

When I talked to Telecom, my broadband supplier it was the 3rd call that day with people who couldn't connect and used AVG.

Once I uninstalled it and changed to McAfee the status changed from local only to local and internet straight away.

Cheers for the help anyway :)
