I just bought hp pavilion dv4 series more than 1 weeks ago and encountered the similar problem "Wireless Acess : Local Only or Limited Access".
My house got few laptops ( Apple, Lenovo and Dell) and never had such problem,
I contacted HP Technical Support and has been advise to restore back my system to previous days. After restoring, wireless successful access to internet. But after I restart the PC, the problem occured again.
Sometime when I surfing internet, the wireless suddenly changed the status to Access :Local Only if I left my PC on idle mode for a while.
Not sure whether is HP Wireless application bug or Internet Explorer and Anti-Virus protecion issue.
Please help... thanks

Try a power cycle of the modem and the router.
Anytime a new device connects to a network ti should be power cycled so the ISP can resend IP information.
unplug modem and router, leave unplugged for 2 minutes, plug back in, reconnect to network after it comes online.
