    Does your wireless network use WEP or WPA to connect? Did you set up a passphrase to use for the encryption in the router? If so, you may need to specify using the Windows Wireless Configuration utility which key you're using. Please clarify.

Limited or No Connectivity on Windows XP

Limited or no connectivity indicates that the computer cannot acquire a valid IP address. This is due to incorrect network key you have entered. We need to check the correct WEP key in your router's setup page. Here are the troubleshooting steps we recommend you try:

Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. Please click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click on Wireless Settings under Setup page.
5. Take note of the SSID.
6. Scroll down, look for the Security Options and check whether WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA (Wi-fi Protected Access) is selected.
7. If its WEP is enabled, copy the value of the selected Key number. If WPA is selected, take note of the Passphrase.
8. To configure the computer with wireless adapter, please consider the following:

Configuring the NETGEAR adapter and Saving the Profile

a. Open the NETGEAR Smart Wireless Settings Utility icon located at the lower right portion of your computer screen. It will then open the Settings tab.
b. Change the Network Name SSID to match the one on your router.

Tip: As an alternative to typing in the SSID, you can use the Network tab to view the available wireless networks. Double click on the desired network.

c. Click the Apply button to activate the connection.
d. Enter a name for your profile (e.g. NETGEAR to Home Network) and click the Save Profile button to store the current settings.

Note: The above procedure applies only if you are trying to connect to a wireless network with no wireless security.

If the computer is using Windows built-in wireless program to manage the wireless adapter, please follow the steps below:

For Windows XP Service Pack 1

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on to View Available Wireless Networks.
b. Click on the Advanced tab.
c. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
d. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Network.
e. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. The network key will be the Key or Passphrase you have copied from the router setup (refer to step 7). Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
f. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on to View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Network.
5. Select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. The network key will be the Key or Passphrase you have copied from the router setup (refer to step 7). Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab. Please ask assistance from the wireless adapter vendor for configuration if using a proprietary wireless utility (non-NETGEAR wireless adapters).

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.

SBG900 wireless association failed when we ran the Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility. It connects via Ethernet but the wireless will not connect. Says it has "Limited or no Connectivity."


Do you get an error that says something such as "Unable to validate identity"? You can definitely fix this issue by logging into the modem and changing the security to WEP. If not WEP you can try no security. I know that no security will work but its trial and error to find out which security type will work with the Dell wireless.
