    I have a laptop running Windows Vista Basic in my LAN, and wirelessly connects to my ISP.

    I could not connect to internet after using it for a week, eventhough all other PCs in our LAN accesse internet. Did a ping to the gateway router and there was reply but no reply when I ping my ISP server.

    Called my ISP and gave my IP address, and now I can ping through ISP server but when trying to browse, I could not. Also the network connection icon shows both local and internet when restarted, after few seconds, only local network icon is showing and internet disappears.

    Checked and disable services obviouse to me like windows internet security. Have I missed something?

    I am guessing here, but it sounds like perhaps the wireless network you are attempting to use has security (e.g.: WEP; WPA, WPA2) and the laptop has not been told about it correctly.

    Alternately, you could have an IP address conflict with another PC on the home network.

    Or, maybe you disabled something that was neccessary?
