Vista says I'm not connected to the Internet while I am connected

Post by SG90bWFpbF » Mon, 19 May 2008 08:57:00


I have a connection to the Internet through a cable modem. If I go to
diagnostic site like www.whatismyipaddress.com, it gives me the correct IP
address, according to what ipconfig /all says.

But in Network and Sharing Center Vista says I'm not connected to the
Internet. This only happens sometimes.

Could someone please explain why this happens?

Thanks.
