1) Your Network or DSL router may have bad or missing information. Powercycle your router and/or rebuild the configuration in your router.

2) Double-check your cabling to the computer. Make sure you have the correct type of cabling, straight-through CAT 5 or possibly a crossover cable and try another cable or test the cable to make sure its working properly.

3) Check your network card to make sure its configured correctly and working properly. Many times setting the network card to 10Mbps/Full Duplex will solve this issue. To do this, open Control Panel, System, Device Manager. Go to the properties of the Network card, click on the Advanced tab and find the Link Speed and Duplex section. Change it from Auto Detect to 10Mbps/Full Duplex.

4) Check and test your firewall. Your firewall, especially if its a software firewall like ZoneAlarm, Black Ice, Norton Firewall or something else could be blocking the connection. Disable your firewall and test the connection. You may have to resolve the problem by even uninstalling and reinstalling the firewall.

5) Check your IP address assignments and workgroup settings in the computer for accuracy. Statically assign IPs to the computers in your network.

6) Reset your TCP/IP stack by downloading and running WinsockXPFix.exe a Visual Basic program designed to fix corrupted TCP/IP issues, host file problems and a variety of other connectivity issues.

7) Also this issue is relate to SP2 update (in that case you should run the Microsoft patch (KB884020) for it.)

Wifi does not connect to network. always asks for network key the router is a belkin n300


The router has probably been setup with wep / wpa / or wpa2 protection. You will need to ask the person who set the router up for the passkey. If this is a router you setup, or if the router is connected to another computer via network cable. You can log into the router (usually by going to http://192.168.0.1 ) with username admin and password admin.
Then go to the wireless section. In here you can see what your wireless key has been set to.

Where do I find the network security key for my router


If it has a SSID and Security Key that has been setup, the person that set it up would have the Security Key. You didn't supply the Make or Model or device? Try to connect with a Ethernet Cable to verify the device is working properly. If it is connected to the computer with limited access it may be a computer issue? Reboot the Router and the computer, unplug the router, for 30 seconds or so, plug in, wait for self test, reboot computer, select the wireless from the list of Available Wireless Networks and connect. Post results.

Limited to no activity


Hi,

You refering to Limited or No Connectivity. It only means that when your trying to connect wirelessly the Network Key that youve entered on the conmputer did not match the Network Key on the router. For you to access your router you need to type 192.168.1.1 to he address bar of your browser and it will ask you for a username and password. The default username is "leave it blank" and the default password is admin. Go to the wireless settings page check the SSID and the Network Key. Bare in mind that you can personalize your SSID and network key for you to easily remember it. Now that you already have the information needed go to your computer click on START then CONNECT TO, select the SSID of your router click on connect then enter your Network Key.

I did the unabling the EEI something and it went to limited or no connectivity. I know the internet is working because I am using it with this computer. What's wrong with my laptop?


I think you unchecked the IEEE authentication.
Now you will need to remove the wireless network from the preferred wireless network list and connect to the wireless network again.
make sure that you are typing the correct network key . If you are not sure about the network key then open the setup page of the router and check the wireless settings of the network.

No internet connection Message Wireless


You need to connect your computer directly to your router through an ethernet cable. Then, you need to log into your router's configuration settings page (the webpage used to initially set up the router). Once you log onto it, go under the wireless security section, and there you should find the network key (might be know as passkey).

Set up the wireless router and installed the long range booster card. Get limited or no connectivity when i try to connect to internet


When getting limited or no connectivity, it means that the ip address on your computer is invalid.

Possible that the wireless security is enabled on the wireless router, and the wireless card doesn't have the same network key.

When you access your router, take note of the wireless network name (SSID), wireless security and network key.

The wireless card should have the same settings as the router.

Hope this helps!

"limited connectivity" message


If it's limited or no connectivity, you might have typed the wireless network key incorrectly. It's case sensitive. If you don't have wireless security enabled, you can simply delete the preferred networks on your wireless connection window then disable any firewall you have like windows firewall, norton, mcaffe, zone alarm and the likes. Also try to change the channel on your router to 11 and that will solve your issue. Restart the computer after that.

I am connected to network but have limited or no connectivity


Wireless Troubleshooting Checklist 1. Unplug power from Router and Modem for 3 mins. 2. Restart computer. 3. Make sure your wireless device is active: a. Verify that your wireless device is turned on. Some laptops have a physical hardware switch located on the case. Make sure this is in the ‘On’ position. Other laptops use a Function Key combination (e.g. Dell uses Fn+F2, IBM uses Fn+F5)

b. Open Network Connections (from the System Tray or from the Control Panel). Verify that your wireless Connection is Enabled. If not, right-click on your wireless connection and select ‘Enable.’
4. Renew your connection. Changes elsewhere on the network can sometimes knock out your connection. To reconnect quickly, click Start, Run in XP (or press the Windows key in Vista), type ipconfig /renew, and press Enter. 5. Check for interference. Have you installed any new wireless devices (speakers, baby monitors, ect)? If so unplug them. Make sure your wireless network has a unique name (ssid). 5. If other wireless devices can connect to your router and only your computer can't. a. Try deleting your wireless profile. If you are using the built in wireless for windows go to Control Panel> Network Connections right click on Wireless Network Connection and select View Avaliable Networks. On the left hand side under Related Tasks click on "Change the order of preferred networks" select your network name and click remove. Now try reconnecting to it. Be sure to type in the correct security key. b. Disable your software firewall. 6. If you can connect to the router but not the internet. a. Click Start > Run type CMD into the box and click OK to open a command prompt.

At the prompt type netsh winsock reset catalog
This will Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults

When the first one is done tyoe this netsh int ip reset reset.log
This will Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults

Reboot the machine. b. Change the name of your wireless network (SSID) c. Change the wireless security key and or wireless security type. Some devices are not compatible with the WPA encription. be sure to use a HEX password Hex is 0-9 and A thru F only. The Hex key
must be exactly 10 characters long for WEP64, or 26 characters long
for WEP128. If you're using 5 characters or 13 characters, it's
really ASCII, not HEX. Please don't forget to rate this solution.
