Access:Local Only
The 2 monitor icon in lower right shows currently connected to:xxxxx
Access: Local Only

I can't get to the internet, how do I fix the local only mode. This happens
very often.

Thanks.

RE: Access:Local Only
How are you connecting to the Internet? Via a router, router/modem or
directly to a modem with a WAN miniport PPPoE in Vista. USB/Ethernet?

What is "xxxxx"? When this happens "very often", how do you reset it, so you
see when it happens again? How often is "very often", anyway? Any pattern?
