After a month of trying to resolve this this is my last shot!!
Toshiba sattelite running vista basic.
Connected fine to the internet wirelessly - changed servers to Orange Gigaset the laptop will only connect locally.
I have tried all the obvious - resetting router, manually connecting, etc but nothing seems to work. Other laptops can connect to the router fine even vista laptops, but for some reason the TOshiba won't, Orange have been no help at all.
Any help would be like winning the lottery, Hours and hours of wasted attempts losing the will!!!!!!
