Vista Wireless Internet Issue

Ally

Hi all, I have a wireless issue at work with my Vista laptop. I am able to
connect to my works wireless service ok, but cannot access the internet. I
can connect to everything locally without issues but not the internet. I can
do everything locally such as file/print, connect to exchange, etc

I even tried to ping the router/ default gateway but just get time outs even
though it'son the same subnet.

All other laptops (which are Win XP) are able to access the internet from
the wireless service without issue. When pinging the router they get
successful responses.

I've tried recreating wireless connection on vista laptop but issues
continues and tried googling but cannot find anything.

Any vista pro's out there?

first step would be to unbind IPv6 and see if that makes a
difference

Got my issue sorted. I changed the IP address DHCP was giving me to another
IP and it works ok now. There must be an issue with the 192.168.10.50 IP or
something, because now that I'm on 192.168.10.52 internet access works fine.

I've set up an exlusion for that IP to a dummy IP so no one else gets it.

PS- I'm in a domain environment, two local DNS servers incase one fails and
the router is actually a UTM device (internet router, URL filtering, firewall
etc)
