Make, model of your WIFI router, if the firmware is current in your router and did you try another RF channel. Also how far away are you from your router?
Hi, any advice would be appreciated. I have scoured the internet for similar problems to no avail, but maybe I'm just missing something (I'm no expert.) I recently acquired a new laptop with vista and an integrated wireless card. most times, I can access the internet but recently (over the last week or so) I've lost my connection multiple times and now I can't regain it. Then it says local access only... or connection unsuccessful. When I run network diagnostics or use command prompt it gives no advice other than reset network adapter which I have tried. I have done this manually and automatically, plus tried to enable and disable the adapter. I have tried unchecking ipv6 option and restarted the computer...let it sit for a long while. Nothing will work. However, I found that it can't ping the dns server. Sometimes the diagnostics tool said "cannot communicate with dns server" though sometimes it said connection successful but when I look the connection is local only- no internet. any advice?? I have tried disabling security features such as virus protection and firewall which made no difference.
