Local Only Help

Hi there,
I'm having some problems with a network connection, let me explain some
back story.
Me and my friend are presently at a sixth form college and are trying
to get onto our network at the school. Wirelessly the network is
protected by a WEP key and the teachers refuse to give that to the
students. We then went to an ICT room in one of our free times and
connected a laptop via the Ethernet cable coming from a Netgear Router
(I can give you he router name later). Upon connection we were presented
with the "Local Only" type of network, opening an internet browser we
can access the schools email through the email exchange server upon our
school user and password login.

Is there anyway we can get a full network connection rather than local
on our laptops by using an Ethernet cable?. Here is some information:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix.: tewknet.local
IP Address.....................:10.7.170.85
Subnet Mask....................:255.255.240.0
Default Gateway................:10.7.191.10

We got this from the cmd command prompt IPCONFIG.

Appreciate Any Help.

-M & T-

Re: Local Only Help

ok boys... here is the solution....

The problem is Windows Vista Home Premium does not know how to connect
to wireless networks using the WEP Key...

If you Disable Wireless Security (i.e. No WEP Key)... and try to
connect to your router.... you will have LOCAL AND INTERNET
connection... and your Vista Home Premium connects to the internet
wirelessly...

The minute you put WEP security back on..... Vista cannot understand it
anymore... and your connection to the internet is cut off....

YES!!... THIS IS A VISTA PROBLEM.... nothing else....

And the people at Microsoft DO NOT KNOW HOW TO FIX IT YET!!!
