I would first recommend unplugging the power to your modem, router and turn off your computer for a couple minutes. Then, one at a time, plug everything back in...modem first, router, then computer back on. If this does not work, please let me know.

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. Also try resetting the wireless router by turning off the power to the wireless router for a few minutes and the boot up your computers.
CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.
Check the connection (signal) strength of your wireless connection in the status area of the task bar in Windows. Also, hovering the mouse over the wireless connection should reveal the connection speed. 54mbps is the highest you can expect on a wireless connection, which is generally OK for streaming video..Any less of a signal strength/connect speed will likely not be adequate for streaming video.
A poor signal strength is usually because of too much distance or too many walls between the router and the computer.
