I've got a friend visiting and we are unable to get their computer online at my house. My 4 computers connect fine to my router and internet. When this computer connects wirelessly, the connection to the router is successful, but then Windows says Access: Local Only and there is no internet.
When I try plugging in an ethernet cable to the router, Network Connections sees the cable is connected, but does not get online.
ipconfig shows the computer connected to the gateway but if I try to ping the gateway ip address it times out.
I am able to ping 127.0.0.1 and localhost with no problem.
I don't know if this makes any difference at all, but my friend's internet at home is CenturyLink, while I have Cox cable.
The really odd part is that we can see a neighbor's wireless signal and are able to connect to that with no problem. (Not sure if that ISP is Cox or Centurylink, my neighbor is out of town, but in ipconfig I see a DNS suffix that says Cox.)
Any ideas what I might try?
