Hot spot closed connection when security is enabled

My laptop, OS Vista Home Prem., had no problem connecting to my Wifi Hot Spot when no security is enabled. Once I secure the connection with a password and I try to connect to it with my laptop it connects but with local connection only and I have access to nothing through my browser. It is "connected with Local Access Only", I don't doubt I am overlooking something simple but would truely appreciate some assistance on how to fix this dilema. I've been to Lenovo (Thinkpad laptop) and they don't seem to have a clue....Thanks
