Access the preferred network settings (if you are using the Windows wireless setup - right click on the wireless icon + view available wireless networks + preferred networks) for your machine and edit the listing for your wireless network, you'll need to uncheck the box that says something to the effect of "an authentication key is provided for me" and enter your security key in the boxes provided.

If it still fails - you may want to remove your network from the preferred listing and add it manually, making sure that the authentication is turned off as described and with your security key entered twice.

Should I buy a new router or upgrade OS?


Well, I find Verizon's statement rather confusing. The OS really has little to with actually connecting to the router and getting an IP address for access to the Internet. Now, trying to use an older browser to actually get INTO the router may be a bit more of an issue. Older browsers may not be compatible with the Webpage that Verizon uses for the router access. You say that the VAIO has Windows XP SP2. Is there some reason why you never upgraded it to SP3? SP3 provides a big upgrade to the OS and there are hundreds of other security patches that followed SP3. Without it, the OS is dreadfully out of date, and this may be more of an issue than the simple fact that it is Win XP. I say this because I have four PCs running Windows XP, and four running Windows 10 on my Verizon FIOS router right now. Two of the XP machines are wired to the network and two are wireless. So I can vouch that Windows XP itself is not the disqualifying issue. If you could provide more information on what you tried to do and what the results were I could possibly be of more assistance. Something tells me the folks at Verizon just didn't want to work with you or their current expertise doesn't go back far enough to relate to Windows XP anymore.

The issue here may not be the laptop but the router strength of it's wireless radio. Do you have another laptop or a freind who can come over and test his connection? The DV series laptops have pretty decent antennae and wireless cards. Try to update the drivers for the WLAN card, make sure the antennae leads have a good secure fit at the ends where they attach to the card. If the router is a couple to several years old, it may need the firmware updated.

Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.

Laptop wireless connection


Hi .

LImited access no internet service means that Authentication of your wireless network is not up.

You must know what your wireless encryption is and you can check your manual/guide for your router or gateway on how to access it.If you dont have it anymore than you can access your router by using your desktop computer w/c im sure is hardwired to your router.

By using your desktop we need to look for you default gateway by ff the steps below.

For win xp:

Start > run > cmd .... on the Dos window type in ipconfig /all

it'l then show your default gateway . It would look like this .192.168.xxxx

If you have your default gateway , w/c is your routers physical address Open your favorite browser and on the address bar type in your default gateway.It would route you to your routers page. Most routers ask for your username and password.When youre able to access your router you'l have a chance now to view or change your wireless settings.

Hope that helps. Pls let us know if you have further questions or clarifications.

Good Luck .

Cheers.
