You are posting a docking station for a laptop. You need to make sure you Network Connections are good before attempting to use the dock with network. More than likely you simply lost the drivers for the Network Interface Card,
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wirelessconnection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptopprobably 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 thenclick Repair. This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless cardon the laptop.
1) double click on the wireless network icon on the status bar 2) click on View wireless network 3) click on change advance settings 4) go to wireless networks 5) under the preferred networks, remove the SSID 6) try to connect again
Try the properties of your Network controller. And go to your Internet Protocol Version 4 and 6 properties. Sometimes you have to change from Auto Obtain to manual and back again to get the IP addresses to correct themselves. Hope this helps.
first off it would be helpful to know some more details, do you know the answers to these questions? also i assume you are connecting to a wifi router in your home network.
1) is there a password for the wireless network you must configure?
2) what operating system are you using?
3) if the OS is windows, do you know if you are using the wireless network settings panel that is part of windows, or does it have another brand name when you click on the wireless or network icon?
some possible causes i can think of are:
1) settings got reset and it cant connect without a password or confirmation to join an unsecured network
2) a new network popped up near the one computer that doesnt work and is being preferred due to signal strength although it is not a valid choice for you to get online
3) in the case of windows, software provided by the wireless hardware manufacturer is fighting with the windows wireless configuration
4) the wifi card in the computer is broken
Open up you're network connections in you're notebook & run the wireless wizard. Search for you're home wireless network.
You should be able to connect to you're home. Remove any other networks you might find. While you're at it I suggest you setup security for you're home network with a password.
