    I have a desk top operating on Windows XP and a laptop operating on Windows Vista. I noticed that somebody was piggybacking my internet access so decided to change from WEP to WPA-2. This I did with the help of a techi adviser in the Talk Talk call centre. I was using the desk top at the time and all seemed fine. However when I later went to use my laptop it comes up with Local Access Only and I can't connect to the internet. I have spoken to several advisers in Talk Talk and nobody can help me. I am desperate as most of my info is on there and I don't know much about computers.

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.
