Hey all i wondered if you could help me.

I have just reset up my wireless connection here in new zealand along with my PC after formatting it, but i now seem to be having problems connecting to my wireless network.

The router is set up exactly as before, and all the hardware is the same but when i connect all i get is "Local access only" when i tried to conect to the wireless.  I know its not a problem with my router as another of my pc's is connected via ethernet fine, and then my laptop is connected wirelessly fine as well, hence being able to ask you on here.

I wondered if you had any ideas of getting it working?

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps MAC filtering is enabled on your router? Also make sure your PC is not using static IP Addresses. And check the router configuration to see if the DHCP tables are not full.

All checked, nothing wrong there.

Any other ideas?
