    Hi,

    I got my comcast internet connection this morning; I setup my wireless connection and its connecting fine with my office computer. Unfortunately personal computer (HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook PC in which Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit SP2 is installed) is not able to connect with the router. I even tried connecting my modem directly - NO Luck. It was connecting for couple of minutes and getting disconnected.

    Both my office computer and my iPod are connecting fine with the wireless network but my personal computer is showing Connected (local access only) icon in the system tray. When I mouse over, its showing "Unidentified Network (<network name>"
    Is there any way to resolve it?

    Thanks in advance
    Subeesh

    Open a cmd prompt and type in "ipconfig /all". Lets see what that says.

    Thanks but Those step didnt resolve my issue.
    In order to debug I connected the modem out put to my laptops network slot and it worked fine for sometime. But after 2-3 minutes IE displayed page cannot be found and I saw the yellow icon on the network icon (of 2 computers) in system tray. On clicking the Network and selecting &#8220;Network and Sharing Center&#8221; option, it displayed a yellow triangular icon between MY PC (This Computer) image and NETWORK image and a red cross icon between network and NETWORK image and INTERNET image.
    On clicking the yellow triangular icon between MY PC (This Computer) image and NETWORK image , system displayed a Windows Network Diagnostic message "Identifying the problem...". After some time it displayed the a new message with the following three option
    1. View available wireless networks
    2. A problem with your network router or broadband modem preventing an internet connection
    3. Automatically get new IP settings for the network adapter "Local Area Connection"
    On selecting the 3rd option &#8220;Automatically get new IP settings for the new IP settings for the network adapter &#8220;Local Area Connection&#8221;&#8221;. It showed a repairing message for few seconds and showed the same sort of error message again. I selected the same option from that message too. Then System displayed repairing message for few seconds and after some time it displayed &#8220;The issue has been resolved successfully&#8221; .
    After that it works fine. But it disconnects after every 2-3 minutes.
    my IPCONFIG is follows

    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.
