Hi,

Type www.routerlogin.com into the URL box and it'll take you straight to your router's domain page, and then Restore Factory Settings.

That will undo any customisations like MAC filtering or WEP/WPA encryption, or port forwarding etc.

Make sure you wait until it tells you that you can connect to the internet, sometimes this can be more than 30 seconds after it reaches 100% Reset Status, so be patient.

Obviously you're having wifi problems, so you would use an ethernet cable for this. If you don't have an ethernet cable, you could do a manual reset using something like a paper clip, pushing it into the small reset hole on the back of the router, and holding for 15 seconds, and then waiting until all the lights have stopped flashing and are remaining on.
If this doesn't help, then it is to do with the settings on your laptop.

Hope this helps

Computers have limited connection to linksys wrt54g although signal is full strength


Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably 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 then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.
Also try resetting the wireless router by turning off the power to the wireless router for a few minutes and the boot up your computers.

I'm using windows 7 with a wireless rca by thompson dcw725 router. my desktop is wired into it, but i got a laptop that connects wireless, but has no internet access, says limited connectivity. Any ideas...


First of all, you need to check if the laptop is correctly connectedto the router.
try the following steps to see if you are effectively connected to the router :

1. Open the command prompt on your desktop computer (Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command prompt OR Windows Key+R -> type cmd).
2. Type ipconfig /all and then note down the value given for Default Gateway
3. Repeat the first two steps on the laptop and compare the values of Default Gateway.

If the values are different, then it means the laptop is not correctly connected to the router.
You will have to delete the Wireless network configuration (In the Network and Sharing Center, you will find it in "Manage Wireless Networks").Then start the wizard for connecting to a wireless network. Be sure that you enter the network security key correctly.

If the default gateway values are correct, check the firewall/antivirus settings on your laptop. If you cannot or don't know where to look, deactivate them completely and try again.
You may also need to check the parental control settings and your web browser settings (notably if it is in offline mode).

Last but not least, on the laptop, delete all broadband connections and/or dial-up connections that are present (in the Network and Sharing Center, go to "Change adapter settings" to find any broadband or dial-up connections).

Trying to connect wirelessly to 2 wire. I get limited access icon


Hi groveland1,

I see that you are having issue with your Internet Connection, Limited or no connectivity is a possible issue with your network key / security key on the router and your laptop.

1. Try and check the network key in your router.

2. Check your network settings in the Laptop and see if the security settings in your Laptop is the same as the security/network key in your Router.

3. If possible recreate your wireless connection in windows for a fresh connection from your Laptop to your Router.

4. Change your Network Key in the Router and in your Laptop see if it will connect in-case you may have forgotten you old Network Key.

Hope this helps.

You can disable the notification so that it would either be on or off only and not a limited connection.

click on start > control panel > network connections
right click on the Local Area Connection > under the general tab, please uncheck the box that says "notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity" click on ok and then restart the computer.

After the restart, please check the network connection if is still says connected now or it is disconnected. We will check where we can proceed from there.

if youve changed the password on the router since the other computers logged onto the network, then you need to delete the network history from those computers.
Otherwise those laptops will be trying to connect to the network with the old details.

I have a hp lap top with wireless internet. It says that it is connected and i try to get on the internet and the gives me a error message. what do i do??


From what you have told us I would unplug and replug in your telephone or cable modem then your wireless router in that order.

If it still dosent work then try the repair internet connection under network troubleshooter on your laptop.

If that doesn't work delete the connection you are having trouble with (on the computer), reboot the computer and rediscover the wireless router/access point and see if that gets it.

Best I can due with limited info. hope it helps.

double check that your router is not broadcasting in only G, make it reverse compatible. There is a chance that the other laptop may not be G compatible. Also check the security key and make sure it is correct. If your blocking connections by MAC address make sure the MAC of the non functioning computer is added. You may want to delete the current connection settings from the laptop and restart with a fresh wireless connection. I hope this helps. Good luck
