I also have a local only connectivity issue. I use "hot spots" to get on line & it worked great with my old XP laptop but this new vista notebook sees the unsecured hotspot but doesn't get on line "local only" yet the icon in the tray said connected, I cant ask everyone to reset their router & that helps only part of the time even on my home wireless connection
I use IE on HP pavillion vista Ultimate 64bit
Dear all Cnet members:
Good morning. I hope you would be able to help me with the following problem.
I am using Windows Vista Home Premium in my Dell Laptop. Recently, I found out that the laptop is not showing the internet connectivity status though I can connect to my internet through broadband connection. I tried to find out the reason going through "Connect to a network" path and then, trying to "Setup a connection or network" through "connect to internet" and found the following "wizard error message":
Component file: [C:\Windows\system32\connect.dll]
Error: (0x8007277B) .
Failed to detect Internet connectivity"
I would be glad if you can let me know what should be my options to solve the problem in addition why this problem occurred in the first place.
Thanks. Take care. Have a nice day.
