    I have a laptop running vista home premium . For some reason the laptop display unidentified network. I have macafee antivirus on my laptop. But my friends can connect without any problems.

    Steps tried:

    1. BE broadband as me to set the TCP/IP address and I have tried that as well but it didnt work.

    2. I have tried the steps on this website
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928233 to change in registry

    First off, can you connect using a wired connection?

    Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for a network. Enter the correct encryption key.


    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    IPCONFIG /ALL

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

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    Did you try removing all the stored wireless profiles and connecting? Where does the process breakdown?

    I have removed all the stored profiles..

    when i search for the wireless network , I find my modem and then when I try to connect to it. It would ask for a password. Once I have input the password, it would saying connecting and then would state unidentified network, local access only.

    Change to use dynamic addressing. Then if wireless still fails please show an ipconfig /all for the attempt.

    To configure a dynamic IP address on your Windows Vista computer:

    1. Click Start.
    2. Select Network, then Network and Sharing Center, and click Manage network connections from the list of tasks.
    3. Right click the connection of interest and click Properties.
    4. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) from the list and click the Properties button.
    5. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
    6. Select Obtain DNS Server address automatically.
    7. Click OK.
    8. Click Close.
