Wep - Limited Or No Connectivity

Ive got a dlink 604t and a pci card by dlink and a centrino laptop. I recently encrypted my network but only the laptop can connect to the network. My desktop says its connected but its saying limited or no connectivity. Ive checked that dhcp is on and it is, windows is assigning an ip address automatically. Ive checked the wireless network on the properties section on the d link icon on my desktop and it says its providing the key automatically and its the correct key. The desktop doesn't connect when the laptop is off line either so i don't think its a dual ip issue,

Limited Or No Connectivity Problem

Okay so today i signed up for comcast internet. I got it all set up and whenever i plug the ethernet cord from the modem to my laptop the error "limited or no connectivity" comes up. When i plug the cord into my ps3 the internet works perfectly. So something must be wrong with my computer. I have tried repairing the connection but it doesn't get passed the "renewing ip address step", any help?

Limited Internet Connectivity

I have a wired internet connection (ethernet) when connecting to the desktop it works straight away and automatically but when connecting to the laptop it says limited connectivity i thought at first it might be because it doesn't get the ip address automatically but that wasn't the case so i clicked the diagnose button and it said something about resetting the network adapter so i clicked on that and let it repair but that didn't seem to work either. How can i fix this problem?

Can i connect a wireless router to a regular router? Ill be getting a psp for the bday and my school issue laptop tomorrow. Both of which ill need a wireless connection if im gonna get online, however, my own and my moms desktops do not have wireless capability and are hooked to our cable modem with a regular 5 port netgear router. Im thinking about buying a wireless router, but i cant unplug the other router to hook the wireless to the modem.

Network Will Not Work - Limited Connectivity

I have a net gear router that is 4 ports/wireless and has been working great since the day i got it. Until last night. It all started where a vpn window would randomly pop up while i was surfing the net and would not let me "browse" until i canceled it. It started one in a great while then became more frequent to the point last night where now all hard wired rigs and wireless can not access the internet. My router shows with it's led's that it is working properly yet when i look at connections my vpn is disconnected and my lan connection is "limited connectivity". I have tried to repair, reconnect and set up a new connection to no avail. I have tried to reset the router but w/ no success. It's weird b/c all my wireless show great signal strength but can not connect.

Dell Dimension 4600 Limited Or No Connectivity

I am stuck on a problem with my parents pc, and i would really like to get this troubleshooted and fixed so that way i can get my gaming pc back. So they ain't corrupting it with the home improvement ideas and flowery websites

It is a dell dimension 4600. Was working fine the night before, and after being told it wont connect to the internet and getting home to take a look see it sure wont. The computer is running windows xp. The main issue is that in network connections it will show a limited or no connectivity sign. I have tried the following steps. Tried 4 different cat5-6 cables. 3 different nic's and everytime i do this it will then say media state disconnected in cmd and also in network connections. But in device manager shows the nics, and after rebooting it will see the cards, will try to establish a connection and then goto a disconnected in network connections. Like i said ive tried different nics, cables, system restore, rolling back drivers. I even had 1 of them usb -ethernet adapters, i can point to exactly were the drivers are but it wont even load the drivers. I even took the pc out to the shop and blew out the dust bunnys. Big mess. I have tried about all of my troubleshooting skills and i am just ending up with a big old brain ***. Any ideas? The pc is only 3-4 yrs old i think, but would be really nice to get the parents off of my pc so i dont keep seeing them looking at lovey dovey flowery websites and damaging my aggressive pc.

Limited To No Connectivity After Restoring To Factory Settings

I restored my dell to factory settings and everything was fine. I was trying to get my d-link antenna to work. I pulled out the air card while the computer was on and i'm wondering if i screwed something up. Everything seems to work fine except i cannot get onto the internet directly. I tried all the basic fixes like shutting down the cable modem and router and putting them back on. My laptop connects fine and the ethernet cable is fine. I tried repairing it going through network connections and that did nothing.

Wifi Ip Address Not Found - Limited Or No Connectivity

So last night i turned on the laptop and it would connect with my home internet, but it would say limited or no connectivity. When i tried to open internet it would say internet connection not found but when i connected the ethernet cable to it, it would say limited or no connectivity but the internet would open up just fine. I know it's not my internet because the desktop works just fine. The computer thing in the bottom shows that yellow triangle with the exclamation point in the middle. When i opened the wireless thing, it said repair, so i clicked on it and it opened up a little box saying disconnecting, then reconnecting, then trying to find ip address, then it says ip address not found. Help? Suggestions?

Limited No Connectivity / Dhcp Time Out Error

I did some research on here for ways to maybe fix the problem. I went to "services. Msc" to restart it, then i went to network connection and hit repair. As the user had recommended i tried this multiple times. Did not work. Still the "limited or no connectivity notice". I tried disabling the "limited or no connectivity notice" but that didn't change anything, i could still not connect to the internet. I also tried cheating by using all the info assigned to this computer (ip address, etc) and manually filling them in. Didn't work. Finally, i went to the command prompt to release the isp (which apparently i didn't even at this point have one assigned, it was just 00. 00 or something) and then renew. After a bit i got this message "unable to contact your dhcp server. (Or connect to can't remember exact phrase) then request has timed out. So i'm guessing something got screwed up with the computer that will need to be fixed for me to get connected again? I don't understand how this could have happened when the storm did not effect our power, just the internet connection. There have been times the power has gone out and this has never happened.

Can't Connect To Internet With Either No, Or Limited Connectivity

So, while i was on a trip to japan, my parents got a new router and set it up. Its now on a locked network, meaning that i now have to have a password entered. First of all, this all happened when i was gone. Can someone walk me through this process?

I can't connect to the internet and i entered in the password, and it says i'm connected to the network, but i can't connect to the internet with either no, or limited connectivity. Both my dad's and mom's laptops connect both to the network and the internet. So, what do i do? I dunno if this helps, but its on a wep kinda thing. I'm more interested in getting my laptop to work though, that's my main concern. Is this a router problem, or my laptop's problem? Because the same thing is happening to my brother too. The phone line is plugged in, and the router is a belkin model.

Netgear Router Connected With Limited Access

Laptop will not connect to wireless router but computer and phone are connected. I am using vista on my laptop and the wireless internet icon at the bottom right is showing that its not connected. However when i click on it to 'connect or disconnect' it says that i am connected to my netgear router with limited access. This is only happening to my laptop and it isn't anything to do with my internet provider as the wireless is connected to the main family computer and also my blackberry phone. Im thinking that some settings might have been changed on my laptop and this is why it is not working?

I have tried restarting my laptop, disconnecting and connecting again, removing the network connection and then starting from scratch adding it and entering in the pass code. Am i going to have to reboot my whole laptop and wipe everything and start from the very beginning?

How To Get Good Wireless Connectivity ?

What is the best solution?

Connect Wireless Router To Another Wireless Router

I was wondering if there was a way to connect one wireless router to another. I have two wireless/wired routers, and i do not feel like buying a wireless stick for my desktop. I'd rather just connect the routers somehow. Attaching one long cable to the router is not an option. I would have used a cable , but my modem is in a corner where my couches are and other furniture in the way. That's why i say connect the two some how. I do not have any other places to put them since the cable company only opened a select amount of ports. The routers are both netgears, which as i stated are wireles/wired. Links or detailed information will be appreciated.
