Computers have limited connection to linksys wrt54g although signal is full strength

Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably 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 then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.
Also try resetting the wireless router by turning off the power to the wireless router for a few minutes and the boot up your computers.

My router wont work when it is connected to the modem. the message that on there says limited access

If you already verified that your modem works if computer connected directly to it, try powering down router and modem. Start modem first and wait at least 2 minutes before starting router.
if this doesn't help you will need to verify that your wired connection to router works first before you can attempt to use wireless.
With your computer connected to the router try to open router setup page. Based on router type you should be able to access it from browser using: or you will need to login using default admin/admin account or according to router user manual. Configuration page will allow you to verify if you have Internet connection and configure other settings including wireless connection.

Hello, Unfortunately, ISP techs often try to put blame on their clients equipment as much as possible. If your computer is showing limited connectivity, then this means that it is able to successfully connect to your wireless router, meaning that its probably not your adapter. Limited connectivity usually is a sign that you cannot reach the internet. This could be caused by multiple issues. In order to isolate the problem, try connecting your computer directly into your modem using the cable from the wireless router. If you can connect to the internet, then it is a configuration problem with your router. If not, then it is something with your connection to your ISP, in which case you need to call your ISP back and explain that situation. If you do happen to connect to the internet, then please reply, and we can go from there.

When you get "limited or no connectivity" status what it means is that your computer has connected to the network (in this case the wireless side) but that it has not been able to get an address on the network from the router.
You will need to connect to the router (using a cable preferably) so that you can change some settings on it.
You will then need to set your ip address on your computer manually. Set it to the 192.168.0.x range, I recommend
Then open your webbrowser and go to this address:
That is your routers address and will let you log into it to change settings.
What you need to do is look for the DHCP setting and turn it on. DHCP is what gives out the addresses to computers connecting to the network. Usually the required settings are set already, but if it does ask, you will need to set the "start" and "end" address. This sets how many computers can get an address/be connected at the same time. I suggest setting it to around 20 - so do something like this:
start: end:
Save the settings and change your ip address back to "option an ip address automatically" and connect back to wireless on the router, you should now get an address and be able to connect to internet :)

No connection, cant install the software

You said that when you connect the computer to the modem, you get limited or no connectivity. make sure that your computer will be able to go online when you connect it the modem directly.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Limited connectivity error

You need to enter the security code on the router to tell the router it is safe to communiate with your computer. This is to prevent others from hijacking your signal from the router.

"limited connectivity" message

If it's limited or no connectivity, you might have typed the wireless network key incorrectly. It's case sensitive. If you don't have wireless security enabled, you can simply delete the preferred networks on your wireless connection window then disable any firewall you have like windows firewall, norton, mcaffe, zone alarm and the likes. Also try to change the channel on your router to 11 and that will solve your issue. Restart the computer after that.

The router is not communicating with my pc

Hi there!

The limited or no connectivity problem is commonly caused by some of these factors:
1. router not giving out an IP address (no DHCP)
2. Incorrect network key or passphrase if you enabled wireless security

I want to help you out and I need to ask you these:

1. How many computers do you have?
2. Do you have a wired or wireless computer?
3. Is it laptop or desktop?
