    I have a Dell Inspiron laptop with Windows Vista and recently moved into a new house. I haven't had any trouble with connecting to the internet with the new router we got but recently i tried to use my VPN.
    It wouldn't work and it was only then that i realised that my network and connections centre said that there was no connection even though when i click on 'connect to a network' it clearly says it is connected to my router and the internet works fine. Is it possible this is why i can't connect to my VPN. All the other laptops i try work fine. I tried configuring the VPN but that did nothing. The closest i get to the network centre recognising the connection is to the idenifying stage and then it fails.

    Another issue i am having is with my printer although i suspect this is unrelated. It is connected via USB but when i send the job to the printer nothing happens.

    Any help with either of these would be much appreciated although the VPN is my main concern as i need to connect to it for my uni work.
