Connected to Network, but Showing NOT Connected

This is a weird issue from a client's laptop running Vista Business (not sure
of the make or model at the moment).

The system is connected to the internet - and will do so via Network cable
or Wireless - but the connection center insists that the system is NOT
connected to the network or Internet.

I can get online, use network resources (peer-to-peer, not domain), and have
logged onto the system remotely (LogMeIn Rescue), and there is absolutely no
trouble. However, the system seems to think it is not connected to
LAN/Wireless Network.

As I mentioned this is not causing any "practical" problems, but it
certainly is puzzling why the laptop doesn't think it is connected.

In most cases, press F5 (refresh) will show the good connection. Is this not
your case?

I have similar problem. Prior to installing SP-1 on Vista Ultimate last
evening, I had no problem at my office that has a LAN T-1 connection
(10.1.1.1) and a wireless router that only connects to my printer/scanner
(192.168.2.1). I could be connected to both simultaneously and use internet
while printing and scanning. Today, internet will only work on LAN if I turn
off the wireless connection to my printer/scanner.

After playing with some settings, can finally use both but LAN appears to be
offline. this is very unnerving.
