    Ok I have my laptop and it is running Vista home basic. I have a wireless card in it and have connected over wifi before. But for some crazy reason it wont fully connect. The connection is IPv6 limited and IPv4 local :mad:. I have reset and unplugged waited got new IP's. I have been EVERYWHERE trying to figure this thing out but for the life of me I cant get it. So now I'm here. Please can someone help me? :eek:

    Does that mean you've tried with several networks, including some unsecured?

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

    Yes I have. I can connect through a adapter and the hardwire. But the adapter only works for a sec and then pulls the same crap that my wifi card does.

    We have been seeing a lot of problems with the Atheros AR5007 adapter and WPA(2) encryption. It will connect OK (as shown in your ipconfig /all) but then cannot communicate. Unsecured or WEP encryption should work.

    It may work with WPA if you use Device Manager to update the driver and let Windows search the web for one.

    Or, it may work if you install the latest driver from HP's web site.

    It won't even work unencrypted?

    It may be a corrupted or mis-configured non-Windows firewall or security suite. What one, if any, do you have on the machine?
