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.)

How to connect my wii to my dell xps400


Desktop computers are not known for their wireless connectivity, but it is possible to make yours one that is.


Wireless network adapters, which enable your desktop to pick up wireless Internet signals, come in a variety of forms, and are all fairly easy to install.


Once you have one installed, getting online wirelessly is almost effortless.

Choose the network adapter that is right for you.


The easiest network adapters to connect do so via USB, but if you have limited USB ports on your desktop, you may want to try another option.


There are also network adapters that plug into your Ethernet port, but if you want to use that port for a landline connection you have, and wireless is your backup, then this also may not work for you.


If that is the case, you can buy an add-in card, which fortunately for Dell owners is very easy to install.


Dell computers are designed to be opened and have add-in cards installed without the use of screwdrivers; check your manual for details.


Install the network adapter and any included software.


The adapter will usually come with a software CD with a notice to run the CD either before or after you have plugged in or installed your adapter.


Go through the setup steps on the CD, click "Finish" when it is complete, and your wireless network adapter should then be activated and ready to receive wireless signals.


Click the notification that pops up letting you know that wireless networks are available; or, if there is no notification, go "Start > Connect To" and all available networks will be displayed.


Double-click on the logo for the network you want to connect to and enter the security key if it is a secure network.


(If you set the network up, you should have the security key saved somewhere with your network settings.

If you are connecting to a nearby hotspot, you will need to ask the permission of whoever set up the connection and obtain the security key from that person.)


Select "Home," "Work" or "Public Location" when prompted to designate what type of network connection this is.


You will then be asked if you want your computer to remember this computer and start it automatically in the future.


If you plan to use this connection regularly, it is a good choice to check the boxes next to both options so that the connection will always be available and you won't have to enter a security key for it again.


Hope this helps.

Hasa yellow excla. mark at and says limited or no


If you have a Linksys router that is connected to your modem then you might want to do the following:

It could be that the Security Key is not correct. Make sure that the right security key is being used.

If you have already configured your router with the security key then to the following.

Open up an Internet Explorer Browswer page on a computer that is connected on the network already. Type in the address bar 192.168.1.1 and hit enter.

A box should pop up and request that you log in. Place in your password that you had created. If you have never created a password then leave the username blank and type in the password box admin in lower case.

Click on the Wireless Tab
Click on the Sub tab under wireless then Wireless Security. In this window you will find the security key.. Write the correct key down not the passphrase.

Hope that helps.

You can see network key by logging in to router settings. Some routers are 192.168.1.1 and some are 192.168.0.1. All you have to do is type it in to address bar on any browser and log in and under wireless tab it will give you field where it says wep or wpa encryption and this is what you need. Hope this helps.

Loss of wireless connection


Is your laptop able to connect to other networks? If so, your router maybe at fault. Reset the router, if it still doesn't work, you may need a new router. If your laptop has issues connecting to other networks, the wifi radio in your laptop may need to be replaced.

My WUSB54GSC network adapter worked Ok for six months but now keeps saying limited or no connectivity. Tried unin stalling and resetting. Hasn't worked - same problem keeps coming back.


If the wireless security on the router is enabled, then the pre-shared key or encryption key on the router and PC should match.

You will need to check the settings on the wireless router to confirm this.

Wireless network connection


Mine always does that when my IP address lease renews but it's an easy fix. You can usually click on the pop up that says limited or no connectivity then in the box that comes up click repair. If you cannot get to that box you can just go to start>control panel>network connections then right click the wireless network connection then left click repair. That usually works for me.
Hope that helps!

Limited connectivity


Hi Duneider!
It's normal that your computers will not connect after you enable a wireless security (WEP/WPA). You are getting a limited or no connectivity message because the wireless computers are not connected to the network using the network key or the password that you have used to setup WEP or WPA. There is no need in hard conding the IP address, all you need to do is reconnect to the wireless network using the WEP or WPA Key. If you will type the correct WEP or WPA Key, it will connect and automatically get the IP address again from your router.

Unable to setup wireless network


I know exactly what has happened
u did not knew the password for router manager
u reset it
After reset router , it came back to its factory defaults, now the password will come back to its factory defaults ( if u still dont know the factory defaults password, check manual provided to u with this router )
After reseting , as router came back to factory defaults , it also changed the wireless encryption key or WPA password with which u were able to connect earlier to its factory defaults original key and due to that reason u are getting limited or no connectivity coz the WEP or WPA key has changed.
Solution: IF U know the original wireless key or WPA key try to reenter it and see whether it connects or not
if still does not work

Then connect ur PC or laptop with ethernet or LAN CABLE (CAT)
Your internet will start working with the cable
NOW u will be able to open the router manager page
Type the factory defaults password and log in
Then goto the wireless settings page and check what is the WEP key stored in ur router and also try to channels of the router and see wherher it increases the signal strength or not
Once you have got the key from the router manager page
Try to reenter it and then surely it will work.........
Best of luck
