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.

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.

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

Verify if your wireless option on the router is enabled.
Also when you setting the wireless on the router, be sure that channel is not on automatic. Specify a channel number. After that try to connect again to wireless

Dlink router, Dell laptop - no connectivity - won't renew IP


resetting netsh was a good start. I would suggest starting with pulling the power on the router for about 5 to 10 minutes and then plugging it back in. give it a couple of minutes to reconnect to the modem and then try connecting to it again wirelessly. I had an issue with my dlink gigabit that stumped me and a cold reboot was the only thing that worked
