    I bought an engenius eoc2610, wireless access point/client bridge/client router to use instead of my usb edimax device, i had the same problem configuring it but got some success... The ip address of the engenius unit on mine is you need to assign your pc with static ip address of anything in the same range ie the first 3 sets of numbers must be the same the last can be anywhere between 0 and 255 but not 1 as this is the address of the engenius unit eg set pc to subnet mask to this will allow you to web into the engenius home page and configure it to your requirements, when you have configured the unit you need to go back into your pc settings and tick obtain ip address automatically again, this got me working with my d-link di 634 wireless router, however i wanted to connect to my eircom router and this procedure does not work for me..... the engenius associates with the eircom router and a link is established but i cannot access the internet.... this is frustrating as i can with my cheapy edimax usb... i am doing something wrong but after 5 days trying i cant figure out what....:-(

    What is your Internet Service Provider? If you are recieving limited or no connectivety It is for 1 of 3 reasons:

    Your Modem is not Activated

    Your IP address is set for Obtain an IP address automatically

    Your cable is bad

    Your NIC card is bad.

    But my best guess is that your PC is not getting any type of connectivty because your modem may not be active. Let us narrow down some of these issues!

    So let us find out if it is by trying to connect another PC up to your modem. If that works then we no that your Modem is active!

    Next will be to disable your NIC card on your PC and re-enable it!

    Click on start go to Control Panel

    Click on Network Connections

    Find LAN (Local Area Connection)

    Right Click on it and Disable it

    After it is Disabled Right click on it again

    Enable it

    Try this if this does not work get back to me! I have to go through some other things with you, let us take it a step at a time!

Limited or no connection

Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you LAN connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the router.
To fix this problem, right click on the LAN icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the router to issue a IP address to the LAN card on the laptop.

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.

My laptop is indicating Limited or no connectivity

Limited or no connectivity means that you are not getting an Ip address from the router

-try changing the cables
-try changing the port where you are connected
-check the LAN port lights if it's blinking

-are all the computers getting the same error? if yes, it is the routers DHCP server that is bad, if no, focus on that PC that is not getting an IP
-check if DHCP client is started
-do IP config
(if it is 169.254.x.x) it means that it has the auto configuration IP from windows
set static IP within ragnge or your router in the PC

Epson sx510w prints using a cable but can't get it to print wireless

The specs for your model Epson allows you to connect the you network by wireless and by LAN cable.

The specs are as follows :-
Wi-Fi Wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b/g – compatible with 802.11n*
*Transmission rate will be limited to 802.11g and will operate in the 2.4 GHz frequency band
Ethernet Wired LAN IEEE 802.3 (100BASE-TX, 10BASE-T)
Other PictBridge
Wireless security
WEP – 64bit
WEP – 128bit
WPA – PSK (TKIP) – compliant with WPA2
WPA – PSK (AES) – compliant with WPA2

To connect the printer by a LAN cable you need to configure the Epson for an IP address that suits your network configuration and connect the LAN cable to your wireless router/hub.

The reason why you cannot print using wireless is because the wireless configuration in the Epson is not setup with the router's wireless configuration ie. SSID WPA encryption etc.

For instructions of setting up a LAN network printer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

For instructions on setting up a wireless printer, the Epson wireless settings need to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Go into your router's wireless and note the SSID, and encryption settings etc and configure the Epson's wireless settings with the router's wireless settings. This will allow the Epson to connect to the wireless router. Please click on this link for instructions to secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router (if you have not already do so) and configure the wireless card in the computers and wireless printer (the instructions for configuring the wireless card in the printer is the same as for the wireless card in the computers via the printer's menu screen).

Cannot connect to the internet via the router

Use this tip to check your configuration.
If you cannot browse internet connecting with LAN cable to your router contact your ISP and check your router configuration.
If you set in your router a limited number of addresses for DHCP clients, be sure you can assign an IP address to every device.

Wireless set up problem - no gateway ip or limited connectivity

Connect using Lan Cable
be sure to enable java on your Browser.
Use ONLY IE: some router refuse other browser.
SET your PC on a static IP address on SAME subnet as your router (but of course different IP).
If subnet concept is NOT clear to just just ask here.
When connected with router (on Lan Cable) check every setting (WPA-PSK) TKIP key, Broadcast / Channel etc.
You can also disable every WLAN protection and restore it later.
Activate WLAN connection WHEN you are STILL connected.
Last but not least: SET your DNS IP address = your gateway IP (router)

Hold the reset pin on the back of the router for 30 seconds to reset the router configuration.

You might have to try a few times.

See if your computer connects to the default LINKSYS ssid.

If you are able to connect, then it was a configuration issue. Or some corruption of the router's firmware.

Connect your computer to the router using a network cable, and go to username: (nothing) password: admin

Download the latest firmware for the router, and configure it for better security. Do the configuration step by step, to see which actual part of the securing stops communications.


A good security measure would be the following, test wireless connection after each change (you would need to configure your computer wireless settings accordingly. You have to be connected by a wire while doing the changes or you might lock yourself out):

1. change the router password

2. Turn off SSID broadcasting

3. Change the ssid from LINKSYS to something only you would know, like BwRiAfNiDY (it is not case sensitive). Write down the name as you will need it to configure the laptop wireless.

4. Setup personal WPA TKIP / AES encryption

If you are far away from the router when using it wirelessly, and it starts losing connectivity, drop it's speed to a lower setting.
