    Been struggling with this for months and could really use some outside help.

    I have a NETGEAR N150 WNR1000v2 wireless router that I got from Comcast and a lenovo t61 laptop which I want to use to connect to my network wirelessly. I set up the wireless router and network and everything just fine, the wizard said I was good and had internet access and so forth. So whenever I remove the ethernet cord from my laptop and try to connect to my wireless network with nothing plugged in, it will connect and say I am connected but with local access only. It will not receive packets and my IPv4 connectivity is local, my IPv6 connectivity is limited.

    I've used other friends' computers and laptops to connect to the internet to see if its the network and they all connect fine with no problems, they connect right away and can use it all throughout my house. So I know its my computer and some settings on here. I have the Windows Firewall up, I have removed it to try to access the network wirelessly and that doesn't work. I have seen solutions where they say go to your network, properties, general tab and check the box automatically find ip address and those other settings, well when I right click on my network when I am trying to connect to it wirelessly that general tab doesn't even show.

    I have a 11 a/b/g Wireless LAN Mini PCI Express Adapter that works fine with other wireless networks just not mine. I really could use some help, I need to be able to detach from my hardwire to work on my laptop throughout my home on a wireless connection that won't drop and will stay strong. This is killing me because even my xbox and other laptops and get connected and stay connect to my wireless but my laptop, help please.

    Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from Lenovo's web site.

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and show ...

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

    Make sure the router's wireless mode is not 'N only' and that you are not using MAC Address filtering (access control).

    Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

    I checked the settings, the wireless router is in b/g/n mixed mode 150 mbps. Not sure if I am using MAC Address filtering or not, there is no setting on the routerlogin.net for that. There is one that is using this computer's mac address but when i disable it i cant even get onto the internet with an ethernet cord.

    Tried taking the password and all encryption off of the network and still couldn't connect to the network/internet.

    What, if any, non-Windows firewall or security suite do you have on the machine? A few have different settings for wired and wireless.

    (From a JohnWill post)

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

    Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

    Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    Only firewall and anti-virus stuff I used is through Windows and whatever they use. I tried the above in command prompt and still cannot get onto my network and get internet access.

    Sorry if I missed it, but I don't think that you have confirmed that "you have the latest wireless driver from Lenovo's web site."

    Even if we used wireless prior with a Verizon router I am still confused on how the other Toshiba computer connects the iPad connects but the computer we set the router up on won't connect so I check those settings
