    My Friend has an Acer Aspire 5535 laptop running windows Vista Home Basic.

    She connects successfully to my router but in Network and Sharing Center the 3 icons at the top: Computer; Network; Internet; the network shows as unknown and there's an X on the Internet globe.

    Underneath it shows Public Network but changing that to Private doesn't help.

    The network discovery is on. Sometimes it does connect, when it does the Network shows TALKTALK-4618D6 and Private network below is automatically selected.

    My friend has been living in different places over the years so I wondered if there is a configuration confusion somehow!

    I have attached a zipped picture of the ipconfig /all

    I appreciate any ideas.

    Check to see if IE has been set to work off-line.

    That was the first thing I checked. Also checked the Firefox browser. But beside that we knew the wouldn't be any connection because the two computers by the clock didn't have a globe in front of it.

    You might try removing all network connections and settings then reboot.

    After reboot, Vista should setup the network again effectively reseting all configurations.
