    The adapter is most likely functioning okay, but it's not getting an IP address, either because it can't connect to the access point or the access point isn't giving out IP addresses. When DHCP times out, Windows will give you an "auto-configured" IP address that starts with 169.254 and is completely useless. What kind of access point is it? Are you using any kind of wireless security?

Trendnet router will not give a wireless signal, Wi-fi on laptop is enabled, direct connection from modem to laptop will give internet connection. Tryed unplugging everything, resetting it. Nothing I know...


1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop/desktop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

Solved Problem on Limited Or No Connectivity error message



Solving Limited Or No Connectivity error message  


On setting up or make network connections on a Windows computer, you may encounter a Limited Or No Connectivity error message similar to the following:
 
Limited or no connectivity: The connection has limited or no connectivity. You might be unable to access the Internet or some network resources.
 
This message can result from any of several different technical glitches or configuration problems. Follow these steps to resolve Limited Or No Connectivity errors in Windows.
 
Here's How:
Determine whether your network access is functioning properly (that you can reach local network resources and the Internet). If you are using a broadband Internet and Windows XP Service Pack 2, this message is often a false error report. If your network access is non-functional. continue to the following steps.
 
If your computer connects to the network through a broadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.
 
If connecting to your network using Wi-Fi and using wireless security, your WEP or other security key may not be set properly. Check the wireless security configuration on your computer's network adapter and update if it necessary.
 
If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.
 
If using a broadband router and DHCP on your network, check your computer's IP address to verify it is valid and not a private address that starts with 169.254. An invalid address of the form 169.254.x.x signifies your computer's inability to obtain a usable IP address from your router.
 
To resolve DHCP configuration problems, proceed to the following steps.
 
Reboot your computer, router (if present) and broadband modem together, then re-test your connection.
 
If your connection remains non-functional, run the Windows Network Repair utility on your computer.
 
If your connection remains non-functional, update your router settings to change from dynamic to static IP address configuration, and set an IP address on the computer appropriately.
 
If your connection remains non-functional, unplug your router and connect the computer directly to your broadband modem. If this configuration is functional, contact the manufacturer of your router for additional support.
 
If your computer is connecting to your network directly through a broadband modem, or if your Internet access remains non-functional after following the instructions above, contact your Internet provider for support.

Can't make a wireless connection.


what's the error? if your getting the error Connected with limited connectivity try checking your network key in the router and the wireless settings on your computer if they are correct or just removed your security key, if your getting an error no networks in range or no network available check the router settings if the wireless signal is turned on the router, if you get an error windows could not connect to wireless networks try uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless card driver on your system and set the the router to defaults then try connecting with out changing any settings in the router to see if it will connect, if it connects, then there was/were settings in the router and possibly in the wireless settings in your laptop that was causing the computer and the router to have communication issues, also check for possible applications such as network magic that could cause a wireless signal to degrade or not allow connections at all if such application exists on your system uninstall it Microsoft or windows has its own wireless configuration software built into handle wireless connections in XP it is wireless zero configuration in vista and in win7 WLAN which can be set in network and sharing connection in the control panel window.....

The net connection is established and is showing connected. but it is not oppening any site telling that limited or no connectivity


If you have limited or no connectivity then either the router is failing and has reduced signal, the router has security (WEP -WPK) turned on and you haven't put in the encrytion code, or the router is set to only connect to certain MAC addresses.

Installing a 32 bit air link wireless cardbus adapter AWL C3025


First have you tested a wired computer to assure all but the wireless section is configured correctly?

Second have you tested a wireless unencrypted connection to assure it works?

When choosing an encryption strategy did you assure the router and adapter supported the same choice. Generally there is WEP and WPA -- most people prefer WPA now however both the adapter and the router must support it to make it a viable choice.

To provide further assistance please check the model number of the router and provide either the manufacturer and model for the wireless adapter or the computer with a built-in wireless adapter you are attempting to connect.
