I am trying to get my lap-top back on-line after recently having to blow it out. I am to the point of connecting back to the net. It won't let me. It says that I have limited connectivity, but it won't even let me connect to the web browser to punch in the numbers required to go to the next step. It says the page cannot be displayed. Help me, PLEASE!!
There are many reasons for that, below are some of them:
1- First you must check if there are IPs in your internet connection properties, if so you need to turn it to automatically.
2- You need to check if your access point had been already seted to connect to your internet provider. If not reset your accees point, input the ip (192.168.0.2) for your computer. then input (192.168.0.1) in your browser. then site survey and connect to your internet provider.
3- Check with your internet provider if he still including your MAC Address in his list.

yes offcourse ur dell inspiron 5100 laptop support wireless connection,and it will detect the wireless connection in ur computer,uninstall and reinstall the wireless driver and then try and connect to wireless connection,and what u can do is that reset the router and then try and connect to wireless network it will definately connect..and it will also detect the wireless signal also........good luck
It has something to do with the use of your wireless connection especially if it is an open access service. It is possible that there are many users in your area and you have to share the bandwidth of the wireless connection that reduce the efficiency of your laptop. Try finding another source where only few people connect.
Usually the limited or no connectivity is displayed under the following circumstances:
The router and wireless adapter are too far apart.
The network key (ex. wep, wpa, etc) your inputting on the computer is incorrect.
The computer is obtaining the wrong IP address.
Judging by the fact that you already have had a computer connecting to the wireless network , I would assume your problem is going to be related to number 3. To make sure, I would first make sure that the wireless router is giving off a higher signal strength then 1-2 bars in the wireless network box in XP.
To confirm that it is correctly receiving an IP address I would change the connection to DHCP, which means the router assigns an IP address to the computer automaticlly. Here aree the instructions to do so....
Double click on the icon for the wireless network on the bottom right corner
When the box opens , click "Properties"
On the next box , double click on the line that says "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
Next click on the radio button that says "Obtain an IP address automaticlly (DHCP)"
Then click on the radio button that says "Obtain DNS server address automaticlly"
Now try connecting to the wireless network, that shoud fix you up.
Also if that does not work , you can try this YouTube video which is great refrence for fixing a connection. Best of luck!
It is possible that you need to further fine tune your WEP configuration. To verify if it's the security lock, try running the laptop and the router without the WEP security (disabled) and determine if you still get the "Limited connection or no connectivity".
If yes, you have just eliminated that area and could consider other possibilities, otherwise you then have to concentrate on the WEP security.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back on any developments (or lack thereof) or should you need additional information.
What you are discussing here is called a "WiFi Hotspot" and isn't platform specific for people wishing to connect (so from the point of view of people connecting to your wireless network, it doesn't matter if you're running Windows or Linux).
A quick google search reveals a number of vendors, including http://www.hotspotsystem.com/ who have a variety of types of software for creating wifi hotspots.
