Customer Question

My sony vaio laptop will not connect to the internet. It connects to my home network but then says access is only local and not internet.

It is a Sony Vaio Model PCG-5J2L

I'm not sure if this is relevant or will help, but it has a sticker called Service TAG on it with the reference: C101K1C7.

I hope you can help.

Many thanks,

Neil Grant

Jason, I just did a windows network diagnostics check and it says:

JACUSTOMER-on29u7by- :

The configured proxy server is not responding. WIndows is ocnfigured to use a proxy server to connect to websites, but the server is not responding to requests right now.

JACUSTOMER-on29u7by- :

I think I may have fixed it by removing the proxy server from the system!
