Computer has limited and local connection only. Need full connect

I have a pc connected to a wireless router, 2 laptops on it work fine. I installed IE 8 and uninstalled it when I couldn't connect. My pc now only has limited and local connection only. I can connect to limewire and to Steam. I opened a web browser and cannot access the web. I connected my older computer and it works fine. How do I make my newer computer reconnect to the internet

Hello

Something else you can try is to check if your proxy settings have change. Open broser, go to tools, internet options, connections, lan settings, tick off aotomaticly detect settings. Restart your broser and it should work.
Please rate this.

Best regards

Go to your internet options and make sure under connections it is set correctly. If this is not set you won't be able to get online.

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.

Sounds like you just need to power cycle your router and laptop. Turn off your laptop and pull the power on the router for a couple mins. Plug the router back in and wait till it is completed its boot cycle and then reboot your laptop. It will assign it a proper internal IP address at that time.

Try power cycling your router while your computer is connected via wireless (even with limited or no connectivity) . Unplug the router for 15 seconds and then plug it in again. Hopefully the router will assign your computer a new IP address.
