Laptop can connect to all wireless networks except home, but everyone else can connect to the home wireless network? Answered

I've been having this problem for about 2 years now. When I am at my university address, I can connect just fine to the wireless there. And my aunts wireless too. I just can't connect to the wireless network at home, but my brother and mum can with no problem. But I can still connect to it with an ethernet cable.

When I try to connect through wireless, my home network is detected and it says I am connected to it with "Access: Local Only" and I can't open any pages in my browser.

If it's any help, I am using Windows 7.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I have read a few other similar questions but do not understand the answers, I'm not very knowledgable on the subjet.

Problem solved - fixed this by updating my Atheros network adapter if anyone else is wondering.
