Did you try the Connect To optio on the startup menu? YOu may have the Lan instead of the Wan selected.
I?ve recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows Vista Home Premium. Prior to the upgrade, the wireless card on this desktop PC was connecting flawlessly with my wireless router.
With Vista, the wireless card also connects to the router, but not to the Internet. Let me explain. In the Network and Sharing Center view, it show that the computer is connected to multiple networks, but the multiple networks are not connected to the Internet. (There?s a big red X between the multiple networks icon and the Internet.) When I click the red X and ask for a diagnosis, it says ?There is more than one active network connection on this computer?.
There are in fact two networks identified below the link diagram that I described above. One is to my private network and the other is to a public network. When I try and disconnect either one, both disappear. Is there a way to get rid of this public network, but leave my private network connection working?
Based on the diagnosis, I think that this extra network is the problem, but could the problem be something else?
By the way, I know the router is working because I can access the Internet wirelessly through my laptop.
Please help me get rid of the ugly Ethernet cable now connecting this computer.
Thanks for your help,
