      Vista says "Local Connection Only"

      Hi All.

      I sucsessfully set up Sky Connect on my gf's mum's laptop about 3 weeks ago and it has been working fine wirelessly since i did so.

      The laptop has Vista on it.

      Now the laptop says "local connection only" and picks the router up fine but doesn't have any access to the internet at all. Only problem is she lives 3 hours away! so its all over the phone which proves very interesting!

      Has anyone had this problem before? or does anyone have any hints?

      Many Thanks
      Tom

      so after calling CS they say that it could take a few days but it is a problem with her IP address. Sky say that they will issue a new one in due course and this should fix the problem!
