Vista - Wifi 'Local Only' receiving DHCP but no internet
Posted on 2011-05-04
I have a toshiba laptop with an Atheros in built wifi card.
It finds the home network fine, it connects to it and the WPA key is accepted. It also receives an IP address 192.168.2.6 from the Belkin modem/router.
However the internet doesnt work. I cant ping any external sites and the network connection just says 'Unidentified Network' or 'Local Only'.
Connecting to the wifi modem/router that is having issue by a cable works perfectly.
The laptop connects to other wireless networks fine.
Ive reinstalled the wifi card, Disabled IPv6 and checked setting in the router and it all seems normal.
What else can I do?
Any suggestion appreciated.
