"local access only" means the laptop is picking up the router wireless signal okay, it just can't connect to the internet for some reason, so the only access you have is to your internal network.

1.First make sure your router (not the extender) is showing no internet connection errors such as flashing lights. If that's OK proceed to:

2. Right-click the network icon in the notification area and choose "Diagnose and repair"

review page 11 in the manual. what color light is showing? I suspect you have the extender too far from the router.

post a ipconfig /all from the laptop for review

Lights are all green.
IPconfig shows mac and ip address
I think that's wrong, but don't know how to fix it.
