Wifi saying limited or no connectivity

I have done the update on off windows from the other post.
i basically rebooted the computer with the xp service 2 cd and everything was wiped clean. so i installed the wireless driver again but it just keeps saying aquiring network address and than limited or no connectivity.
i am using a safecom swbarr 5400 router. it all worked fine before i rebooted it and my other laptop works fine.



I tried this solution
First check to see if there is any wireless secuirty on your router and if so, set the secuity to NONE and while your at it, change the channel on the router (IF you can... dont worry if you cant as not all routers are easy to change chanel) plus if there is a friewall or anti-virus enabled (EITHER on your computer OR on the router) then disable it.

IF THAT DOES NOT HELP.......

Second...

From you CONTROL PANEL click on “Network Connections” then click your connection.

Next RIGHT CLICK on the connection it shows you and a pop-up window will appear. Choose PROPERTIES.

That will open a "Local Area Connection properties" window. You will find a box showing different icons look for the one which says Internet protocol (TCP/IP). When you have found it highlight this and click on the property button below.

A new window "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" will appear from this window and you have to make sure that the following options are selected:

1."Obtain an IP address Automatically"
2. "Obtain DNS server address Automatically"

If they are NOT selected then select them and then click OK.
It will now take you back to the previous window again click apply, OK and close.

Reboot your computer and you should be good to connect.


And this solution

Please follow these steps
Click Start >Run >regedit {enter}
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock and delete it; just below that, see HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2 and delete it
Exit Regedit and reboot.
To Reinstall TCP/IP

To do this you need a copy of nettcpip.inf. There is one on the Windows XP CD and there may be one on your hard drive at C:\WINDOWS\inf\nettcpip.inf. Note: To see the inf folder, open My Computer and go to the menu item Tools > Folder Options... > View > and choose Show hidden files and folders.
Right click "My Network Places" select Properties.
Right click the connection(s) and select Properties.
Click Install >Protocol >add >have disk.
Browse to the location of nettcpip.inf .
Select nettcpip.inf then click Open then OK then Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then OK then Close
Reboot


But none of them worked.

    Do you see any other networks (preferably unsecured) when you search for networks?  If so, can you connect to any of them?

Sounds like you have a bad piece of hardware. Can u surf with a hardwire to router? I would consider purchasing a wireless usb adapter and installing it to test with. The winsock repair that you performed would only fix a browser related issue. I doubt that you have mac address filtering enabled on your router, but if you do then that would explain why you cant connect. Then again you would be able to connect to other networks, just not yours. Hope this helps...tennis123

As a final note, if your having any problems accessing your routers on-line interface remember that the defualt username and password for logining in to it is normally set to “admin” and “safecom”

Hope that helps you, so please leave a rating so I know if it has.

I HAVE COMPAQ LAPTOP PRESARIO CQ60 IT WONT CONNECT TO INTERNET ON MY WIRELESS NETWORK, I BELIEVE ITS MISSING THE LLDP NETWORK PROTOCOL DRIVER


had this laptop myself, you need to remove all the drivers for the wifi and delete the files and folders.. download the driver from HP, reboot the laptop and it should install the windows driver. reboot again and then install the HP driver, when you have done this and its working make sure windows cannot update drivers ever again as windows installs wrong drivers. windows 10 is prone to installing the updated drivers that are not compatible with this model. like mouse pad. max version is 18. windows puts 19 on and it makes over driver incompatible.

Tip

Increase your internet speed up to 20% in Windowx XP.


If you use Windows XP Professional then it is possible to squeeze an extra 20% out of your internet connection. By default Windows XP Pro holds back 20% of your Internet speed for various services like windows update and spyware checks.

If you want to tap into this locked speed then make the following changes:

1. Go to Start-> Run-> and type gpedit.msc
2. Expand the Administrative Templates branch
3. Expand the Network tab
4. Highlight QoS Packet Scheduler
5. Click on Limit Reservable Bandwidth and check the enabled box
6. Then Change the Bandwidth limit % to 0 %

Once you have done this click apply and restart your PC. After rebooting you should see a noticeable improvement in your net speed.

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.

My computer has no Audio Device. the speakers work fine.


Hi,
Have you tried Windows Update,

If not follow this:

Click on start --> Programs --> Windows Update and accept all updates.

Windows update scans what your computer has connected to it and will see if there are any out-of-date drivers and software. it will also download them and install them for you automatically.

When this is done, restart the computer and check then if the sound is working.
