i am having problems connecting to my wireless internet. it has been working fine for months. suddenly it kept coming up as limited or no connectivity. i have managed to get it connected to the internet now but it says that it is unable to connect, and tells me to check my computers connection.
it wont repair itself, and when i try to disable and enable it it comes back with the limited or no connectivity msg again.

We would need a bit more information - are you using a router, what model, are you able to connect to the router's configuration page, check that the information in it is correct. If you can't connect to the router wirelessly, are you able to connect when using a wired ethernet connection?

Do you have WPA or WEP enabled? Can you delete the connection information on your PC and then create it again?

Have you changed the default admin password on your router, so no one else could have changed its configuration?

Limited connectivity means that no ip address is assigned to network interface or address is on different subnet to router. Is DHCP on in router or did you have static address on interface, how is interface configured?

im using a router wirelessly, the problem is not that i cant connect to the internet, although it does disconnect do the limited or no connectivity thing whenever i turn off the computer. but i reset it by doing the ipconfig /renew. which seems to work. it was working fine, then it disconnected and when i tried to reconnect it had forgotten the netkey, i retyped it in, since then ive been havin problems.
im using windows xp, i dont know how to connect to the routers homepage, it is not mine, it is my housemates and he is aways at the moment! although i do know it is a linksys router we are using.

I get this now and again, I usually resolve it by turning off  my router and then turning it on again.  It seems to be linked with the expiring of the DHCP lease, but I've never really looked into it, as the power off/on seems to clear it.

That does sound like the router has firmware issues. Does it happen on the ethernet link as well? Perhaps just setup a static IP address on your PC until you solve the problem. If you normally use the laptop on different networks you might have to change your routers internal LAN IP to the same as the gateway on other network and find a static IP that is free on both networks.




Time to find a new industry!
