Can't connect through a wired connection to

I have a post where I bring this up here
, but I am making a new post since this is somewhat a new problem. The problem is that I have 2 laptops a sony vaio and a dell that won't connect to the internet through a wired connection. However I do have a hp laptop that does connect to that exact same wired connection. I have tried :

1. cmd -> ipconfig/release and ipconfig/renew
2. powercycling the modem and turning of the laptops
3. changing the link speed & duplex
4. search countless sites =(

And all seem to not provide the solution to this problem. I then hooked up my wrt 300n wireless n router to the modem and tried a wired connection from the router and the sony vaio and dell works fine. The limited or no connectivity was gone and I could connect to the internet. The dell can access the internet by a wired connection and wireless. But the sony vaio can't connect to the router wireless. It seems to have the same problem as trying to connect to the modem wired. But the sony can connect to the router wired which is connected to the modem wired?? I am no computer guy and just know the basics so can anyone tell me why is this? And if there is a solution to the limited or connectivity when I try to connect to it wired to the modem(the sony vaio gets stuck on aquiring network address =(....)? Please I need help lol

I have a fujitsu amil pro v 2055 does it have built in wireless or do i need to use a modem

This laptop does have a built-in wireless.
To connect to the Internet you need a wireless router and connect this wireless router to a cable or DSL modem.

If you use a wireless router with a DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

I want to install internet drivers on my laptop but cannto find them

There are no paricular internet drivers, all you have to do is connect the laptop at the modem - router (either with the wireless connection or with the ethernet one) and you will get internet, assuming that the router is connected at the internet provider.

Sony Vaio netbook will not connect to internet - says limited connection

That's usually your router, not the computer. Sounds like your computer is connected to your router, but IT is not connected to the internet.
I would suggest shutting down the computer, shutting down router, then the modem, plug the modem back in, waiit for lights to finish blinking (should be within a few minutes) then your router, once that's finished blinking, then turn on your computer.

Have you checked at the connection tab - lan settings (for Internet Explorer browser)? Maybe a proxy server is enabled.

My laptop cannot identify a can connect to a network but cannot identify the network

you must be using vista...? Do you have internet connectivity? If you do have connection i wouldn't worry about identifing the network. If you cannot access the internet and the connection says something like limited or no connectivity, take the subnet of your modem (or router whatever the case may be) and static your NIC with a specific IP address.

Laptop Vista dialup modem - Access Limited Connectivity

  • Window update running will definitely affect your dial-up connection, but you should be able to connect faster...
  • See this article
  • Go to start>control panel>classic view>double click Network and Internet connections>click network connections>right click your connection>select properties>under General tab make sure that the device listed is your correct modem-click configure-make sure the Enable modem compression box is "unchecked"-click ok to save changes-click ok to exit.
  • Make sure you have the latest drivers available for your network adapter, consult the MS Vista Network troubleshooter available here
  • You may wish to use your Device Manager to review your hardware and address any problems that appear there.
  • Monitor processes use using task manager or process explorer to see if your ram is being taxed unduly by the running processes. (I mention this because Norton is known to be a bit heavy handed in its use of system memory, you could try an alternative AV like Avira, Kaspersky, Eset NOD32 and see how it affects connections).
  • Vista Networking
  • You might want to read through some of the posts in this forum, and see if there are any posts that answer your issue.

Please consult this article from Microsoft to take steps to improve your system's performance with Vista, by clicking here
For troubleshooting performance issues, please see these articles and the links within them: TroubleshootVistaPerformance and Troubleshoot Vista Startup and Vista Diagnostics
Finally, you may wish to consult this General Setup&Maintenance guide.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Limited or no connectivity

Hi, I had the limited or no connectivity problem on my wifes laptop for about a year.


Go into your wireless router/transmitter and change the channel. eg. mine was on Channel 10, and the following all connected Acer Laptop, Xbox360, Wii, Blackberry but not the Vaio. I changed to Channel 4 an the Vaio sprung into action and everything else updated itself automatically.
