Re: unable to connect laptop to wireless network

Take off the wireless security, CHANGE the ssid- you might be connecting to a neighbor's with the same name. make sure that your laptop supporets encryption if you have it on the router. Seriously- turn off the security and see if it connects then.

I did the unabling the EEI something and it went to limited or no connectivity. I know the internet is working because I am using it with this computer. What's wrong with my laptop?

I think you unchecked the IEEE authentication.
Now you will need to remove the wireless network from the preferred wireless network list and connect to the wireless network again.
make sure that you are typing the correct network key . If you are not sure about the network key then open the setup page of the router and check the wireless settings of the network.

If you connect the computer to the router , it works.
That means the wired connection is OK.
Open the set up page of the router check the wireless settings of the router.
I think your network is secured and you are not typing the correct network key.
just open the router set up and check the wireless settings .

Unidentified network which has limited connectivity

You're network card may be disabled, and that would be why you are unable to connect to yout network/the internet through your network card, to check this go to your network settings, right click on the "Local Area Connection" and if the option is there to "enable" then click it because your card has been disabled, if disable is there in stead then I'm stumped. with regards to "unidentified network" This usually comes up when someone has a wireless network created, but they have the settings made to not broadcast (show) the SSID (name) of the network. This is done for extra security, because in order for someone to connect to the wireless signal they need to know the type of encryption used, the key or passphrase for the encryption and on top of that the network name. Limited connectivity means that you are "connected" only in the sense that you can see the network connection, but you are unable to do anything with it.

Cannot add a new laptop on my eHome wireless router

There is not a limit to the amount of devices that can hook "wirelessly" to your router, but your bandwith is limited. Internet bases phone services will eat up a large majority of your available bandwith. try limiting the bandwith of your phone service or disconnect it all together and see if you can then connect.

pls rate as "very helpful" if this assists you in your problem. ^_^

I have DI 524 d-link. Internet works on desktop and one laptop. Just got a new laptop and everytime I try to connect on the network of 1st. laptop, it says connected with limited access. unable to have...

Make sure that every setting in the new laptop matches the settings in the router. If one setting is off, you will not get a connection. It is also possible that the router is set to only allow specific computers to connect to it. If that is the case you will have to add the new laptop to the allowed connections in the wireless settings of the router.

Unable to setup wireless network

you will need to search the wireless networks again as the old settings will still be assigned to the wireless card.


So refresh the list of networks and then click on your network to connect.
