Hey, I am currently having a @)#()#@ Vista issue where I am only getting PUBLIC ACCESS to my network which consists of 4 computers connecting together with a shared internet source going out to each computer except the Vista machine.
(Desktop PC01) Windows 7 Ultimate ~Internet source/ 2 LAN ports (1 shared for internet access throughout network with STATIC IP), other for normal access through network and RDC (Automatically Assign IP)/ Wireless Card (Not in use)~
(Notebook Lap01) Windows 7 Ultimate ~Just wireless access to internet~
Media Center MC01) Windows 7 HP ~Wired LAN/ access to internet~
(Desktop PC02) Windows Vista HP ~This machine only has a LAN port on it and thats the only device connected to it.~
I have a Linksys Router configured to send out wireless and also LAN configured to the Wired Desktops. The notebook is the only thing to use wireless and occasionally my Windows Phone. I have checked that each other computer thats connected is getting internet access, and they are. But when you jump on the vista machine I can connect to each computer on the network and access shared folders and gear etc but cant access the internet.
I think this may have something to do with the computer only having the PUBLIC access, and have tried to change it to HOME-WORK network profile, but have had no luck changing it. The only thing I can change it to is PUBLIC Network or PRIVATE Network, and there is no options to pick what type of network profile you want to connect to.
If anyone has any suggestions and/or fix please, please leave an answer below. If you need any more information on specs of any of the device let me know.
Thankyou for any and all responses.
