    Toshiba Satellite L455-S5008 - Both wireless and ethernet connections give only "limited access". Both adapters show up in Device Manager and have updated drivers. But when I run ipconfig /all neither adapter shows up and no IP info is displayed? Anyone know what might be going on? (problem seems to have started after a Windows 7 SP1 update? - already tried System Restore which succeeded but didn't get behind the problem - no earlier Restore points available)

    Also, I've tested this laptop on 2 different networks at different locations. All other PCs on the networks are able to connect to the Internet just fine, so the router doesn't seem to be the problem.

    I'm seriously trying to avoid having to do a factory level retore, and have to reload all apps.

    Also already tried running "sfc /verifyonly and found nothing, and "netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt" which made no difference - I even tried assigning a static IP, still no luck.

    Also already tried "Repairing" the connection multiple times, which is unsuccessful, and running the troubleshooter, which only says there may be a problem with the driver. After trying 3 different versions of the driver Toshiba suppled for this specific adapter, and 2 other adapters with their updated drivers, it seems that the driver is not the problem.

If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wirelessconnection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptopprobably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and thenclick Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless cardon the laptop.

    Your Toshiba is not getting an IP address from the wireless router
    Check the wireless router's wireless settings - Check the range of IP address (the range maybe limited, if so increase the range of IP address).
    Check the wireless settings on the computer's wireless adapter, are they the same as the working computers?

How to resolve "Limited Or No Connectivity Errors" in Windows


When attempting to set up or make network connections on a Windows computer, you may encounter a Limited Or No Connectivity error message similar to the following:
Limited or no connectivity: The connection has limited or no connectivity. You might be unable to access the Internet or some network resources.

This message can result from any of several different technical glitches or configuration problems. Follow these steps to resolve Limited Or No Connectivity errors in Windows.
1. Determine whether your network access is functioning properly (that you can reach local network resources and the Internet). If you are using a broadband Internet and Windows XP Service Pack 2, this message is often a false error report. See Microsoft Knowledge Base article 892896 for details on how to work around this error appropriately.
2. If your network access is non-functional. continue to the following steps.
3. If your computer connects to the network through a broadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.
If connecting to your network using Wi-Fi and using wireless security, your WEP or other security key may not be set properly. Check the wireless security configuration on your computer's network adapter and update if it necessary.
4. If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.
5. If using a broadband router and DHCP on your network, check your computer's IP address to verify it is valid and not a private address that starts with 169.254. An invalid address of the form 169.254.x.x signifies your computer's inability to obtain a usable IP address from your router.
To resolve DHCP configuration problems, proceed to the following steps.
6. Reboot your computer, router (if present) and broadband modem together, then re-test your connection.
7. If your connection remains non-functional, run the Windows Network Repair utility on your computer.
8. If your connection remains non-functional, update your router settings to change from dynamic to static IP address configuration, and set an IP address on the computer appropriately.
9. If your connection remains non-functional, unplug your router and connect the computer directly to your broadband modem. If this configuration is functional, contact the manufacturer of your router for additional support.
10. If your computer is connecting to your network directly through a broadband modem, or if your Internet access remains non-functional after following the instructions above, contact your Internet provider for support.

How do you change limited internet access to full access


Limited access usually means you have full access to your network through your hotspot, but the hotspot is not connected to the internet or it cannot get a signal.

I have windows 7 home prem and cannot connect says detects strong signal but limited access


Most likely, the access point is not connected to an internet gateway whatever that is at your place.
and since access points does not provide DHCP service by default (handing out IP information to connected clients), you get the limited access message.
In short, make sure the access point is connected to the router because the router is the once responsible for providing the DHCP service.

I could not chat


If, as the message says your access is limited then probably that is why you cannot chat, it may be one of the features that is turned off by limited access.
Another possibility is that for the older FB version, I believe still used by English UK, chat sometimes needs to have Quicktime installed on your pc to work properly.

I have three bars of reception but it still says emergency calls only on my Galaxy sii I live in Taree


This usually indicates that your Mobile phone provider does not have a network coverage in your area (note: in Country areas, limited network coverage is usually from Vodafone, 3 or Optus). To be on the safe side, make sure that you allow both 2G and 3G network access as 3G access is usually limited to larger cities/towns.

Check with your Mobile phone provider for both 2G and 3G coverage in your area.

Emergency calls are allowed from any Network even if your provider does not service a specific area.

Hope it helps.

Is there a limit to the number of login attempts that can be made or can hackers make continuous attempts until they get in?


There is no limit to the number of login attempts, as far as I know, but there are ways to block hackers outside of your network...

You can use MAC Filters (Media Access Control) to allow LAN (Local Area Network) computers by their MAC addresses access to the Network (p. 44 in the user manual).

You can also use the built-in Firewall Settings for protection from the outside world (p. 45 in the user manual).

There is also an Access Control Wizard (p. 40 in the user manual).

Here is the PDF link to the User Manual:

Home wireless network


Most wireless1.gif networks are setup as infrastructure networks, meaning all communication is to/from a wireless access1.gif point/router that serves the same function as a switch/hub in a wired network as a central point to transfer communications from machine to machine. One works over the air the other through a wire.

There is an alternate form of wireless networking1.gif refered to as ad hoc -- in this version of wireless networking every wireless adapter1.gif can "talk" to any other wireless adapter configured with the same SSID (name) and security encryption (none, WEP, WPA). This is how somewhat less impromptu wireless networks are created similar to impromptu infrared networks some of us have used. One limitation of the ad hoc networks I have seen configured to date is access to the internet. I have posted an article where a stationary PC (required to be running for any other wireless machine to access the internet) with a wireless card in ad hoc mode could act as the router for wireless network but it required a cabled connection the internet. I suppose it could be a second wireless connection on a separate channel with a second wireless adapter in an infrastructure network but why? These types of networks are only recommended in another article for a limited (small) number of machines.

Based on this are you asking to create an ad hoc network to connect 2 PC's1.gif wirelessly without a wireless router1.gif or access to the internet from the wireless network (without a dedicated machine)?
