Hi,
I moved into my new apartment recently and configured our wireless router. But when I try to connect, I get stuck on "Identifying... Local Only". My apartment-mates don't seem to have this problem. I am honestly getting very frustrated with this and have searched the internet for solutions but nothing has worked.

I have Windows Vista, and this is a Lenovo Y550 Ideapad.

In case you were going to ask for it, here's the copy-paste from ipconfig/all:

I am currently connected to my router through an ethernet cable, which works fine. Could somebody help me figure out the solution to this?

Thanks,
James

Along with the ZXOR2 recomemndation, Can you please check the Software of your machine. If possible try to re-install the S/W for your Wireless device.
