Last Friday I started getting a message saying that my computer had limited or no connectivity. I disabled and enabled the connection, and that didn't work. so I unplugged the router and plugged it back in, which also didn't work. I noticed that I had a full signal, but couldn't connect to the internet, so I unplugged the router and modem, etc. and it still didn't work.
So I right clicked on the driver and selected status. my computer was sending out information, but not geting anything back.
When I click refresh under the status menu, it says it couldn't renew my IP address. Can anyone help me out? Right now the only internet i have in my house is on my wii, and it's been like this the entire week.
I think i have an idea for you as mine did the exact same thing..
do you have another like internet box as i have an older NTL box.. anyways
if you do try unplugging the 4 wires in the back of the box or whatever and then you put the ethernet into the back of the computer and just leave the power on

You may occasionally get an error message that reads "This connection has limited or no connectivity. You might not be able to access the Internet or some network resources." It indicates that your PC is having a problem trying to access your network device to connect to the Internet. Very often, a bug that typically affects Windows XP Service Pack 2 causes this error message. This bug causes a loss of your network connectivity in workstations that use Microsoft's L2TP-based VPN (virtual private networking) client to connect to the NAT-based networks. You can fix the "Limited or No Connectivity" problem in a few steps. (If your connection works but you still get the error message, go to Section 2 to learn how to disable it.)
Review the following symptoms and determine if you experience any of them after you install the Windows XP Service Pack 2:
You get the error message "Limited or No Connectivity" when you attempt to connect to your network.
You have a problem connecting to your local area network or to the Internet. You keep on receiving an error message: "Acquiring IP Address" message. If you experience these symptoms after installing Windows XP Service Pack 2, then this bug is causing the problem. In this case, go to Step 2; otherwise, skip to Section 3 Download the Microsoft patch (KB884020) from the Microsoft website. Run this update to install it. Create a registry fix by launching Notepad and typing: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\IPSec] "AssumeUDPEncapsulationContextOnSendRule\"=dword:00000002 Save the file as FixReg.reg to your desktop. Double-click the saved file to install it into your registry. Restart your computer and the error message will likely be gone. If you still see the error message, follow the steps in Section 2. b> If Your Connection Works But You Still Get the Error Message b> Navigate to the "Start" button and select the "Control Panel." Double-click on the "Network Connections" icon. Right-click the "Local Area Connection" icon and select "Properties" from the popup menu. Click on the "General" tab. Uncheck the option that is labeled "Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity." Click "OK." b> If the Patch Doesn't Fix the " Limited or No Connectivity" Problem b> Check your DSL router for any malfunctions. Re-configure or power cycle your router. Check your computer's network card configurations and network cabling to ensure that the problem does not lie here. Check your firewall to determine whether it is blocking you from connecting to the network or to the Internet. Disable the firewall and attempt connecting to the network or Internet while with the firewall is disabled. If the firewall is causing connection problems, then reset or uninstall and re-install the firewall. Reduce your connection speed to 10 Mbps and test this to determine if it fixes the problem. To do so, navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel," "System" and "Device Manager." Review the properties of your network card. Click the "Advanced tab." Locate the "Link Speed and Duplex" section. Change the settings from "Auto Detect" to "10Mbps/Full Duplex." Hope this helps.
Go to your local area connection from Control panel>Network and internet connection>Network connection.There choose the property of your local area connection.
In property,uncheck the option Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity.And choose OK button.Now you have done.Now disable and enable local area connection from network connection.You will seenotification saying acquiring network address and connected.The error of limited area connectivity will never disturb you again.
You can disable the notification so that it would either be on or off only and not a limited connection.
click on start > control panel > network connections right click on the Local Area Connection > under the general tab, please uncheck the box that says "notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity" click on ok and then restart the computer.
After the restart, please check the network connection if is still says connected now or it is disconnected. We will check where we can proceed from there.

hi limited or no connectivity issue comes on a computer when modem and computer are not talking to each other in a proper manner .in this case the ip address of the computer turns to be 169.215......... which is a false ip first of all try to power cycle the complete system and while doing this flip the cables .once you have done that turn on your computer and check that it works or not .if not please try to trun off the firewall .even after doing this if it doesnot works then you need to hard reset the router and then you need to confgure it back again of the same problem comes please try to get back to me on fixya and i would love to solve your problem
If it's limited or no connectivity, you might have typed the wireless network key incorrectly. It's case sensitive. If you don't have wireless security enabled, you can simply delete the preferred networks on your wireless connection window then disable any firewall you have like windows firewall, norton, mcaffe, zone alarm and the likes. Also try to change the channel on your router to 11 and that will solve your issue. Restart the computer after that.
First who is your service provider?
Can you connect to the internet if you directly hook your modem to your computer.
1>If so connect your Modem to your router on the colour code slot on the router which says modem
2>Connect a cable from the router to your computer
3>The lan light on the router should be turned on
4>Check wether your lan says connected . To check that click start-> control pannel -> network connections
5>If it says connected try internet explorer settings
6>If it says limited or no connectivity
Click start ->run -> cmd->ipconfig
7>It should say ip address as : 169.254.x.x.
8>If so type ipconfig/release
9>It shoul say ip address: 0.0.0.0
10>Type ipconfig/renew on command promt
12>Disable and enable lan
Let me know if this helped and also if you dont what kind of messages you get .
you have to renew the ip address.the easiest way to do this is restart the computer then try entering your net key.ALSO if you use a standard ethernet cable the computer may be trying to connect to the internet through that.what you want to do is disable the LAN connection in your network connections window and right click on the wireless connection icon and click REPAIR,this will renew your IP address also.If you do not know how to get to these settings go to START/ CONTROL PANEL/NETWORK CONNECTIONS then right click on your wireless connection then click repair.While your in that same window you can right click the LAN connection and disable it.To enable it simply right click the icon again and click enable.
