Local Access Only...When Secured

Q: Local Access Only...When Secured

I've had my laptop running securely on a network utilizing a Linsys router with no problems. I've had to move and also had to leave the Linksys router behind. I'm now using a Dlink DI-524 router. When I connect to the network unsecured, everything is just fine. When I secure the network using either WEP, WAP, or WPA2 suddenly I can only connect locally. I'm not sure why this is. I am running Windows Vista. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Oh and I am using DHCP.

Preferred Solution: Local Access Only...When Secured

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It also will not connect using the ethernet cable on any settings.

This computer did connect to a secured network though a 3 year version of netgear but I do not know the security settings.

Any ideas? Thanks,

Hi Tech Support!

About 3 days ago, I stopped having access to sites such as Hotmail, Facebook, eBay on my laptop at home. The pages will not load for me but other sites (such as this one, thank goodness!! can be accessed)

Please help me as I won't be able to check my hotmail at work either as that is blocked too.

Let me know what I have to show you guys as I am very computer illiterate.

I have been having this problem since I got rid of many viruses on my computer and updated the Microsoft Security patch. I contacted Microsoft and they said they believe that there is some spyware blocking me. To be clearer it is blocking me from all secured pages and my newly updated MSN Messenger and Yahoo Instant Messenger while my AOL IM has no problems connecting whatsoever. I have attached my HJT file another thing I recently found when downloading Spybot that DSO Exploit is on my computer..could this be causing the problem....
Thanks for any help,

I have a problem with accessing secured wireless network using my laptop. when I try to connect the laptop to the wireless network, the router refuses the credential even if it's correct. I think that this is a something related to the encryption method but I don't know how to change it because the network is not exist in the "Manage wireless network" screen, so would you please help me

thank you

A:Can't access secured wireless

Find a way to get into your router (Ethernet cable?). You're probably right, sounds like an encryption setting, maybe a mac address filter?

I have a NAS drive with both several unprotected folders and one protected folder. I have no trouble accessing the unprotected folders from Win10, but I cannot get access to the protected one. If I click on the secure folder from File Explorer I get the popup

I enter a userid and password as defined on the NAS . The popup disappears for a few seconds; then a very similar one pops up:

It says "connecting" and doesn't say "Access is denied", but never goes beyond that. I'm a bit puzzled because it looks like Windows is asking for credentials for the whole NAS rather than for the secured "share" within the NAS. I have no NAS-level security set up.

BTW, I've been able to access the unprotected shares with no trouble for years - both from Win7 and Win10. I've been trying using the protected share for only a couple months and have had mixed results. Sometimes I succeed, but usually I fail. I can find no errors logged on either Windows or the NAS.

Check what sucurity settings you have. Click on tools, internet options, privacy. It is best to have it on medium.
Though, this will not apply if you arn't using IE. You would have to do something else. Are you using Internet Explorer? If not, what do you use? Have you tried a alternative browser?

One of our field offices previously created an Access 97 db with security features, and the person who created is long gone.

Now our company is in the process of upgrading to XP. Microsoft's knowledgebase claims that all we need to do is: 1) add back permissions to all users/groups for all objects, 2) add Admin to the Admins group, and 3) recreate the .mdw file on the XP machine using the new built-in Workgroup Administrator. (Copying the Access97 .mdw file to the XP machine doesn't work.) The field office was able to do steps one and two, but step three requires them to know the EXACT Name, Organization, and Workgroup ID that were used in the original 97 db.

QUESTION: Is there any way to look inside that original system.mdw file to see that information?

I've already told them to try copying the objects from the orginal db into a blank 97 db, then converting that one, but they still get an error message about "incorrect password". The users swear that there was no password protection set (and they are able to open the db without entering a password in 97.) help?...

A:Converting secured Access 97 db to XP

Hi, Girl.

Look at the shortcuts they used to get into the DB before.
They likely had their usernames "built in" to them to connect to the system MDW. But if they tried to log onto the DB from someone else's PC while logged in under THEIR username, it wouldn't have worked.

That's what I suspect...and it's a fairly common practice to auto-get the user who's on. You can even put the password in there, but I forget what the syntax is.

I had an old(er) computer running XP and had files-mainly pictures (jpeg)-that were secured using the basic windows security and were password locked. I am not able to retrieve those pictures now as I have had to reformat the drive(s) multiple times and reinstalled the OS. It says I do not have permission to do so even though I had the same user name and password. I need a way to disable the security from an "unauthorized" computer from which I am using now.

Using Access from Office XP.


After a colleague accidentally deleted about 100 records from our database we have recently used the "User and Group" permissions to restrict the user account from making any deletions.

The problem I have is with updating the DB. Until we used permission any changes would be made by copying the DB onto my desktop, making the changes then exporting any changed forms, tables etc into the "Live" DB at the end of the day when nobody else is using it.

Now with the permissions set a copy of the database will not allow me in, it comes up with the "You do not have permission..." error message without allowing me to log in.

Any ideas?

I am able to access any site on the Internet except the secured sites (banking sites, credit cards, etc). In this example, I have tried to access the Bank of America website. I am using Google Chrome and IE 8 and the message that I get is:

This webpage is not available.

The webpage at https://www.bankofamerica.com/index.jsp might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

This message is what I get from all of the secured sites. It seems that its any site that begins with "https://".

I've tried running the Malware Bytes, Spybot S&D, etc and they found some, which I removed or fixed. Still no luck. I also did the "regsvr dll" changes that I found from the previous "Unable to Access Secured Sites" and still no luck. I've checked my Internet Options and also followed the steps to "fix" the problem (from another message board). Again, no luck. I've even tried restoring the point to a time when I last used a secured site. Again, no luck.

I'm desparate and was wondering if there is anyone that may be able to help me so that I can regain access to the secured sites. Please help!

A:Unable to Access Secured Sites - 2

Have you ever been able to access secure sites ? If so, did something happen just before it stopped working ? New router ? New hardware ? New software ?

Do you have a router ?

Have you tried resetting Internet Explorer back to factory default ?

Umm, check your Services. Maybe the malware disabled something necessary to run encrypted stuff. Are you currently using Selective Startup (msconfig) ?

I upgraded from Windows 2000 pro to Windows XP pro.
On one of the physical hard drives, I had secured a folder so only my login could access it. The main hard drive containing Win2K was formatted and XP installed on it. I forgot to unlock the security attributes on those folders and now I can't seem to access them in XP!
Any help would greatly be appriciated.

Sometimes this works. As the new administrator in XP, use MS Backup to backup the files to another location on the hdd. Then use the restore function to put them back in the administrator's my documents folder. Now see if you can remove the encryption.

hi, I had this problem last week, it persisted for several days, but I was able to use system restore to fix it. Today, it has re-occured, and system restore hasn't worked. I went to Microsoft.com, downloaded Adaware, it detected a trojan virus. I followed directions to get rid of it (safe mode, disable system restore, update virus definitions, run a full scan) Trojan has been eliminated, but I still can't access my bank site, AOL IM, or Casino on Net. System Restore now won't go back since I enabled it again. I can, however, get email. Last week, I couldn't get email, so perhaps this is a different problem? I have followed directions on the Cannot Find Server page, checking Internet Options, Settings, LAN connections, etc. None of this has helped. Do you have any suggestions on what the problem could be? I would appreciate any ideas.

Is it possible to rename a secured Access 2000 database without messing-up the security permissions?

A number of employees (including myself) are using a secured database that I created. I want to change the name of the database but I'm worried that the .mdw file isn't going to recognize the name of the new database. Therefore the security permissions may get messed-up. That is my concern anyway... I used Access 2000.

Help.. I have 3 desk tops and 1 Laptop. the desk tops are wireless connected via my Xfinity ( cable Modem) and a Trendnet 652- 300 mgb router setup. Recently installed the
Trendnet router ( initially w/o security). I was able to readily connect to and access all pcs to Internet.

However, recently went to Trendnet on line site and installed Router password security. Was able to connect and access the Internet on 2 of the 3 desktop pcs as well as the Laptop. However, 1 desktop ( running on Windows XP Professional, 5.1.2600 SVCPK 3, Optiplex G x 60 ) does not permit access to Internet. Once I get to the screen asking for the password ( network key) , I insert same I receive an error message stating "Network key s/b WEP pr a WPA key". "The network PW needs to be 104 bits- to be entered as a 5-13 ascii character or a 10 -26 hexadecimal characters".

FYI.. I went to the accessible desktops PCs an reviewed each of their " wireless properties" Advanc ed Settings which read -Netwk Auth. - WPA2-PSK & Data Encryp- TKIP.

However, the EX Prof. pc 's Wireless Advanced Settings options only have as options WPA-PSK & WEP settings.
I imagine that this anomily is the reason I can't access the Internet on this PC?

Okay, here's the shpeel...My client has a hp tablet notebook using xp tablet edition OS. (Her laptop from her work.) The wireless router that she is using at home is a belkin wireless N. She is able to access internet from the router fine when it's unsecured however, when I do secure it, no matter what I set it to whether it would be wpa or wep, it doesn't connect to any sites. I'm able to ping to the router, but not externally. I've tried resetting the router a few times but that didn't work. It does say, that I am connected to the SSID even though I'm unable to connect to the internet. I also tried using the intel pro wireless utility instead of using the windows wireless utility, but still no go. There's no issue with the router because there are about 4 macs on the network that access the router wirelessly just fine with or without encryption. I'm just using plain 'ol dhcp. Everything's pretty much default standard settings with the router. Does anyone know what's causing this issue?

Hi brhanse,

Can you give us the make and model of the router. Also, do each of the computers connect directly via a cable to the back of the router; (example, there are 4 ports on the back of the router and each port has it's own cable leading to each computer) or, does the router connect to a switch and the other computers connect to the router through the switch?

Has this suddenly happened or have their been intermittent issues with connectivity recently?

Hi all, this originally started with an issue with the wireless. I recently installed a D-Link DIR-515 wireless router and did a basic setup, giving it WPA2 security. My Vista computer originally was able to connect to the router with Internet (and before that, to the modem directly with Ethernet), but it was infected by the Vista Security 2012 virus, which I removed after following some steps and MBAM. Since then, it can no longer connect to the wireless network, so I Googled the issue, and did a few things:
- Norton Remover,
- In command prompt, ipconfig and netsh + .... (some commands that reset/refreshed IP/DNS or something along those lines)
- Going to wireless settings and disabling ipV6
- Going to wireless setting and manually giving it an IP, Default Gateway, DNS (according to the specs that I found by using ipconfig on my working Windows 7 laptop)
- Updating the Atheros driver to version 9.1

Somewhere along the way, I must've nipped something important somewhere, because now the Vista machine doesn't connect to the internet wirelessly NOR with the Ethernet cable attached! The icon in the lower right hand corner shows that the machine sees the router, but with Local Access only.

I've done an ipconfig /all with the machine and here are the results (this is with ethernet attached):

i have no idea what it could be as i had not been doing anything differently with it when the problem started, help please.

A:internet 'access' keeps changing from 'local and internet' to 'local only'

This happens when the router/dsl/cable modem loses its connection with the internet but your wireless connection between your computer and the wireless router stays up (local only).
The next time this happens run in and take a look at the WAN light on your dsl modem to verify that it is red or flashing orange (depending on your modem). Most likely the connection has dropped but the modem will restore the connection automatically when the line is good again. This is an ISP issue and you should call them when you are having trouble and ask them to diagnose the line. You will have to insist because it takes more than 2 microseconds of their time and you know how valuable they believe their time can be.

Welcome to TSG:
Need some more info.Please answer as many of the questions as you can:
The “Johnwill” need to know about your environment questionnaire:

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

What country are you located in.
Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
What is the expected Upstream/Downstream speed for your ISP Connection?
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Make and model of your computer.
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP1-SP2, Vista, etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.

Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms? Have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way? Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?

If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

I'm running Vista on an Acer 4630Z laptop. My wireless connection changes frequently during the day from "Access: Local and Internet," to "Access: Local Only." It does not appear to have any affect on my wifi reception or my access to the internet, though sometimes it seems it may be a little bit slower in "local only." I can disconnect then reconnect and will quickly get Local and Internet again.
This happens several times a day.
What would be causing this? I've read other threads about people having Local Access only and not being able access the internet but that is not my problem. I can still access the internet even though it says "local only."
But I'd like to fix this so that it will stay on "Local and Internet."

Hello everyone,

So I turned on my PC this morning ( vista 64 bit ) and I could not connect to the internet. I hover my mouse over the little internet connection icon in the botom right hand corner and it says local access only. Has anyone else had this problem? Is more information required ( more than likely ) jsut let me know. This is jsut another reason to have vista.


P.S. I didnt do anything out of the ordinary.

yes, we respect your opinions on vista, unfortunaely we can only help you if your optimistic about fixing the issue, please keep vista bashing to a minimum (you are in VISTA forums).
Now thats cleared up, can you right click the connection icon and go to network and sharing center, and then click on the red x over the network map at the top, it should be where the blue arrow is pointing on the image below.

All right. This has been happening as long as I had my computer. It's new. And it has Vista on it. When ever I turn on my computer, and everything. I get problems when trying to get onto the network. Like.. It will be "Identifying" The network for awhile. And i'll wait. And then I'll connect to it and it will say "Access: Local only" And I wont have Internet. And then i'll renew my IP and restart my Adapter and then restart my computer and then restart my Modem And then after doing all this over and over again, I might get internet. And some days i'll true on my computer and then I'll have internet and everything will work.

So let me say this. I'm on a wireless network. (NetGear) There are other people that are on it too and don't have this problem. Also I have the new-est NetGear Router And the new-est NetGear Adapter And they should work together. Also, my Security is on the highest level, WPA-SAK2. (I think thats what it called.)

Here is my problem:

One morning, I woke up to check online on my PC, what I always do in the morning.
My internet wasn't working. I went to check my router and everything worked fine.
Other computers could still connect to the same internet connection (wirelessly).
So there was nothing wrong with the internet connection.
So I tried to connect to the internet on my PC using another SSID (someone else's and not password protected).
I logged on right away without any problem. That was weird.
I went back to my own SSID, it got connected but said, "Access: Local Only".
I use my own SSID on my netbook, and everything works fine.
So why isn't it working on my PC. It had always worked before and I didn't change any settings.
So, on my PC (I am using Vista on my PC, XP on my netbook), it said "Access: Local Only".
I could still print wirelessly via this connection, but I can't browse the internet.
I don't know how to enable Local + Internet option...
I tried many things that other people suggested:
- restart computer
- uncheck IPv6
- add some files to registry
- enable firewall
- disable and enable connection
nothing worked

I don't think there is something wrong with my internet, b/c I could log on via other computer.
I don't think my wireless adapter on my PC is broken, since I could still log on to internet using another SSID.
I am guessing the wireless setting for my SSID on my PC is stopping my PC from accessing the in... Read more

I have a little network going at my house and i've encountered a problem,
here is my network,

Cable modem ----- D-Link 1005D Network Switch ----- DIR-655 and DIR-825
----- Two Laptops and Two Desktops

I got the DIR-655 a while ago and it worked perfectly, I decided to get the
DIR-825 for the 5Ghz band to stream HD/Regular video and play online, I set the routers so they had 2 different default IP's ( and
and made sure the IP's of the computers on each router didn't conflict, the DIR-655 still works perfectly (Local and Internet), but the DIR-825 only has local access, both have the DHCP server on but no IP's conflict. I made sure either than that all the settings were the same. Can anyone help?

I am experiencing local access only on a gateway laptop.

A:Local Access only

You have no default gateway setup. You need to change your network configuration. Is your internet setup to automatically connect when you connect to the wireless network or do you need to also establish a separate broadband connection?

Alright so i've got a question guys, basically i have a work laptop with is running Vista 32bit and the problem i'm having is it will connect to wireless networks fine and work on the internet fine.

But when i disable that and try to connect through my ethernet connector it wont assign an ip address by dhcp. Ive checked all the setting to make sure it's supposed to assign by DHCP and i've tried it at home and at my work, so i know it's not the router that i'm connected to, and i assume it must be something with configuration but i can't seem to figure it out.

Any help or comments are much appreciated...thanks!

My friend, who now does not have a connection to internet with a wired router, has asked me for help. His connection is showing "local access only" . He runs Vista Premium on his desktop and was connected yesterday. Vista updates installed automatically, and after restart he only had " l. a . o. " connection.
He did a system restore but to no avail. Any suggestions for a beginner please.

Hello all,

i have been battling this issue for the past 2 days, thus far i am not winning ...

out of the blue my wired network went to local access only. wireless devices work fine, plugging ethernet into another machine works fine as well. i have attempted multiple suggested fixes with no positive results. some details about the problem:

when testing with ipconfig i get assigned a default IP (162.xxx) and no default gateway

i can ping local (127.xxx) but not router or beyond

windows troubleshooting
safe mode with connectivity
reinstalling drivers
resetting NIC
updating all drivers
system restore
flashing BIOS

nothing works and i am getting quite desperate since i kinda like this machine. i am totally lost, please help !

hello mt103, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Try this tutorial out and see if it helps at all: Internet Troubleshooting Guide - Windows 7 Forums - created by Dinesh

Failing all of that, try downloading the most recent driver for wireless lan from your computer's manufacturer's website, uninstall your current one, and install the new one.

Let me know how it goes.

Okay, I give up! I've seen several similar posts to my issue and I've tried just about everything suggested to no avail.

I have Vista Home Premium (32-bit). I've had the same laptop/modem/DSL for over a year and everything worked fine, then about a week ago I started getting the local-access-only message and can no longer connect to the internet.

What I've tried:
1) Taking my laptop to another wireless location - same error.
2) Trying an XP laptop on my home wireless - works just fine.
3) Rebooting in Safe Mode - still doesn't work.
4) Deleting the Network adapter drivers and letting windows reinstall - still doesn't work.
5) Going back to the latest windows update and uninstalling it - still doesn't work.
6) Disabling TCP/IPv6

Any other suggestions? I'm out of ideas and quickly losing my patience!

Hello everybody, new to the site.
Here Is My problem, I took a win xp/media center off a domain few months ago. I have not used it since. I booted it up this morning in Admin, No Problem. I put it into a workgroup no problem. when i try to access any program, some local folders and/or control panel I get a message stating
"Windows can't access the specified device, path or folder. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item".
Now I can go into safe mode and there is no problem access anything. I can get on the internet ,right click on folders and so on, but once I relog on as admin -full control I can't get on the internet, launch programs, etc.

I really do not want to re-install.
