I have a PC running Windows 7, a laptop running Vista and an iPad. I was having a problem with my wireless router so I got a new one and set everything up. The Windows 7 PC and the iPad connect to the wireless network without a problem, but the laptop running Vista will not connect, it keeps getting a connection that says Local Only. I removed all of the wireless networks from network sharing from the laptop and started over again, put in the network password and still the same problem. I then ran network troubleshooting and it said something with the router is keeping the laptop from connecting to the network. But how can that be, when the W7 PC and the iPad connect with no problem?

Any ideas?
