    Actulally I have no problem with internet connecting to the internet,
    browsing and everything. My internet connection is the all the time. My
    confusion is over the task bar icon. For a few minute it indicates that I am
    connected to Local and Internet and the next minute it indicates that I am
    connected to Local only. Is there any differnce between the two? Anything I
    should worry about?
    My PC connected to the DSL modem thru network cable.

  2. Windows is sometimes slow to detect whether or not the default route
    to the internet works or not...

    That's why you get Local from time to time..

    Thank you for the information. So nothing to worry about then as long as I
    have the connection. It's just that I saw many postings similar to mine
    except that they have problem with the internet connection as well. Or is it
    because they connect wirelessly? Again, thanks.

  4. I've seen it on my systems and some of others I have known and it
    hasn't been an issue. For our case, the general cause of the problem
    is a long latency/ping time to the internet...
