I've created a WiFi hotspot for the local community.
The problem is, some Russian PCs (Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7) can't get an internet connection (We have a lot of bypassing Russian fishing vessels and cargo ships). The PCs obtain a valid IP address, and some of them can even manage to send some few packets - But none of them are usable on the network. They all say
Ограниченный доступ в Интернет (
Limited internet access).
The thing these PCs have in common is that they all run a Russian installation of Windows. They can't ping the router (one PC got one response, ONCE), they can't access any sites and Windows never asks
Is this network public, home or work?.
No one else has problems with the WiFi hotspot - Danish and English Windows, Linux and OS X all work like a charm.
Can it be, that there is a difference between the Danish and English Windows installations, compared to the Russian installation?
PS: The hotspot is a airMAX rocket M from Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. (www.ubnt.com)
