      Vista and local access only??

      Hi,

      I just bought a new laptop with Vista on it. I have not used the Sky Broadband disc to connect to the internet as it found the router straight away.

      However, periodically I lose my connection with Sky and when I put the cursor over the little 2 monitor icon by the clock it says that I have "Local Access" only where it normally says "Local and Internet".

      To regain the lost connection I go through the ritual of disconnecting the power from the router for 10 seconds and disconnecting and reconnecting to the Sky network from my laptop.

      When it is "Local Access" only I can still connect to the Router page via 192.168.0.1 and under status it says I am connected and have the normal download/upload figures.

      Can anyone help before I have to start paying money by phone Sky?

      Many thanks, I am so grateful.
