Hi would appreciate any ones help on this one.

Basically I have been runnign my laptop on wireless orange livebox fine for a few months now.But came back after a weekend away to find it will only connect to local only..( im running vista if that helps )..Ive tried everything..resetting the box my wireless adapter..but when i do the vista repair it says something about a DNS server?..Its weird because several other computers are working fine..AND my mobile phone can connect via wireless but now it won't.its really puzzling me.
