I apologize in advance if there is answer to this already. I did some searching and didn't find any. Ok, here is the thing I have a Dell XPS 730. The last few times I tried connected to the internet it would show my router, however it would tell me I have Local Access only. I used to just unplug the Ethernet cable and plug it back in and I could connect again. Now when I do this I still get Local Access only. I have other things running off my router just fine. I have two laptops run off the router, a ps3, xbox, my cell runs off the Wi-Fi, everything but this one computer. I can not figure it out.
