    Local Access Only

    I have a new Toshiba A205 Satellite laptop with Vista Ultimate Installed. I
    am having fits getting a consistent internet connection. I have two access
    points in my network; one is a Netgear WPN824 and the other a Belkin
    5D7230-4. Both work perfectly in the XP environment hard wired and via
    wireless. With the Toshiba/Ultimate combination, I am always able to connect
    into my LAN, accessing other computers and printers, but most of the time I
    get a "Local Access" restriction notice and an X in the map showing
    connectivity from the router to the Internet. In other words, most of the
    time I cannot get through. Other times I have been able to get connected via
    wireless or hard connection. I have successfully been able to connect via
    Third Party Hotspots. Am I doomed to never being able to reliably connect to
    a legacy router? That's not a good situation for the vast majority of users
    out there.

    We have seen many cases like this. This link talks about wireless, but it is the same idea.
