This is just a try. Find out the Default Gateway on the other computers. If they are using a static IP then you need to get on. At someone else's computer click Start and Run and enter Cmd and click OK.

Now type in ipconfig /all. Look for IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers. Write it all down. Then find an available IP address by using the Ping command.

In the same Window, type in ping and the IP Address of the computer you are at. That's just to show you what it looks like when you find an IP already taken. You'll see "reply from..." with the address you just pinged. Now ping again but change the last octal in the IP (the last number) in the IP address to something under 256. And ping again. Do this until you get a message "request timed out". You've just found an available IP.

Help, connection fails from wifi, after walking away from the wifi box


All WiFi "boxes", called WiFi routers, have a limited reach. That reach can be limited, when you are in a building with concrete walls and steel plating. But even when you have a free sight tot the router the range can be limited to 25 or 50 meters. Although manufactures say up to . Be aware other rower working on the same frequency, close to you also will limit the range of operation.

Wifi not working


Could be your router, could be your laptop. If other devices can connect to your wifi, then it is your laptop, if not, then it is your router. If it is your router, check all physical connections and power of course, make sure it is plugged in. If it is your device, and all other devices cannot connect to the wifi at your place either, but can connect at other places with wifi, it is either your router, or your ISP. If it is your laptop, then you can perform a system restore, which may correct the problem. If that doesn't work, look up the support/drivers section for your particular model from the manufacturers website, down the drivers for your laptop Wifi card, and reinstall the drivers. The support section at the website will also show you how to perform a system restore.

I tried to connect my vaio to wifi it is showing limited axcess what should i do


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.

Loss of wireless connection


Is your laptop able to connect to other networks? If so, your router maybe at fault. Reset the router, if it still doesn't work, you may need a new router. If your laptop has issues connecting to other networks, the wifi radio in your laptop may need to be replaced.

Toshiba equium A210-17i wireles problems


Hi,
It doesnt sound like a problem with you laptop, rather its most likely to be the router.
People can edit the settings so that only their IP adress can connect.
If you can connect with limited connectivity, again its the router, not connecting properly.
Can you connect to any router? i take it you're not connection to your own XD
