    I'm posting this problem here even though it has nothing to do with Tomato! This is a Linksys E2000 and HP G-60-125NR Notebook PC "Local Access only" problem! I searched both here (Linsys Forum) and the internet and will post the issue on HP and other forums. The issue appears to be common and I've tried many of the fixes without success. While in Boston over Thanksgiving I setup a new network (and new E2000) at my daughters home. The PC connects to the home network but can not access the internet unless it is hard wired to the router. Three other laptops all were able to access the internet wirelessly. As I stated, I tried many fixes I found online but cannot get "Local Access only" disabled. Help would be appreciated!

    It's probably a Windows Firewall issue on the affected laptop/computer. Try Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Firewall\Advanced settings....

    Have you tried to disable Network Location Awareness service in services?

    Had her try it today but no success. Having said that I think I'll have her reboot (I did have her stop the service). Still shows connected to the network and she was still able to access the web wired to the router. Thank You!

    the last solution is to give up vista and upgrade to windows 7
