Hello Pat,

From the description of your problem you are using a laptop to access the internet through a wireless router. The computer reports limited connectivity mode when there is little signal or a problem logging on to the router. That is called APIPA (automatic private IP addressing). That means the system cannot connect to a DHCP server (the router). Can your laptop even see the router when you look in the "available networks"? WEP/WPA encryption is a possibility. It's possible that the router is set to only give out 10 IPs and your desktop is #11. In that case, you or your network support technician would need to increase the number of DHCP clients on the router.

DON'T COPY A DHCP ADDRESS TO ANOTHER COMPUTER. You cannot have 2 systems with the same IP in a network. APIPA means that your TCPIP stack is working, but the desktop cannot communicate with the router. A static IP won't solve this.

We hope that this helps. If there are further problems please post back.

I get good connection through my Belkin Play USB adapter for about 5 minutes or so, then it tells me that I am experiencing limited connectivity. I unplug and replug the adapter, it resets, works for a few...


Hi Sir

for experience I can recommend you to change your configurations in your router like a security mode Disable Q.O.S,W.P.S and Firewall, also download the last firmware of your Belkin F7D.

USB adapter just only received wireless signal but if the emitter is not in the same range u will still have a problems .

Hope this time you can resolve it any questions please let me know

How do we access 2 player mode fifa 09 ps3


Make sure all controllers are connected to the console. If that isn't the problem go to quickplay or start new game or something along those lines and when it comes up make sure there are two controllers on that game menu

hopefully this works

Cant play turismo 5 only on line


All of the new games try to connect to the internet as soon as the game loads. It's like all the silly errors you get when you turn your computer on without the internet. My ps3 automatically connects me to the internet as soon as I turn it on. You shouldn't be limited to playing online like warhawks. I think it's just an annoyance.

What game is it? As some games could only be played in 'Link Mode' which is where 2 playstation 1's were connected together via a link cable.
