Please Turn off all electronic devices for 30 seconds and turn them back on. This would include the computers as well. Also when connecting to the wireless device, if you have it set to automatic connect, please disconnect from it then reconnect by finding the wireless network and reconnect. This should work for you, please let me know if this is any issues still and I will help you for free :)

How to resolve "Limited Or No Connectivity Errors" in Windows


When attempting to set up or make network connections on a Windows computer, you may encounter a Limited Or No Connectivity error message similar to the following:
Limited or no connectivity: The connection has limited or no connectivity. You might be unable to access the Internet or some network resources.

This message can result from any of several different technical glitches or configuration problems. Follow these steps to resolve Limited Or No Connectivity errors in Windows.
1. Determine whether your network access is functioning properly (that you can reach local network resources and the Internet). If you are using a broadband Internet and Windows XP Service Pack 2, this message is often a false error report. See Microsoft Knowledge Base article 892896 for details on how to work around this error appropriately.
2. If your network access is non-functional. continue to the following steps.
3. If your computer connects to the network through a broadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.
If connecting to your network using Wi-Fi and using wireless security, your WEP or other security key may not be set properly. Check the wireless security configuration on your computer's network adapter and update if it necessary.
4. If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.
5. If using a broadband router and DHCP on your network, check your computer's IP address to verify it is valid and not a private address that starts with 169.254. An invalid address of the form 169.254.x.x signifies your computer's inability to obtain a usable IP address from your router.
To resolve DHCP configuration problems, proceed to the following steps.
6. Reboot your computer, router (if present) and broadband modem together, then re-test your connection.
7. If your connection remains non-functional, run the Windows Network Repair utility on your computer.
8. If your connection remains non-functional, update your router settings to change from dynamic to static IP address configuration, and set an IP address on the computer appropriately.
9. If your connection remains non-functional, unplug your router and connect the computer directly to your broadband modem. If this configuration is functional, contact the manufacturer of your router for additional support.
10. If your computer is connecting to your network directly through a broadband modem, or if your Internet access remains non-functional after following the instructions above, contact your Internet provider for support.

Network status is "Limited connectivity


Sometime the wireless card does not connect to the wireless router properly and you will get this error message. To fix, right click on the wireless icon on the Task Bar and then click Repair and the wireless router will issue a new IP address to the wireless card in your computer/laptop.

The keyboard is not working. Nothing comes out


I don't know your level of technical experience, so some of these may seem obvious. These may not be in the best order, I've added them as I thought of them.
1) check the batteries in the keyboard and mouse. They can go through batteries in a big hurry sometimes. If just changed double check polarity.
2) check the connection(s) for the receiver. If you have pets check for chewed wires.
3) have you added any new USB devices. They may be using to much power from your USB ports
4) have you added any other wireless devices, includes non-computer devices.
5) have you tried resetting the keyboard and receiver signal.
6) check USB power output. You can plug in a different USB device and see if it works.
7) does your receiver require batteries (very rare).
8) you may need to reinstall your keyboard drivers and software.
Most wireless keyboards operate in the 400 Mhz range so do most wireless networks and many phones, these can all interfer with your signal.

Adding a wired computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you are adding a desktop or any other device to the router which will always be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable, then in this case you don't need to do anything.
You can just connect the Ethernet cable between the router and the computer and it should work.
If you are not able to go online even when it is connected properly then check IP address of the computer.

Adding a wireless computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.
To check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to access the router set up page. On the set up page you will find all the wireless settings of the router.

"limited connectivity" message


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.

My wireless light will not come on even if i turn the switch on... why is that?


I experienced this same problem on a friend's AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B router. The primary computer used WinXP,sp3; I added a laptop, WinXP,sp3 and a Macbook Pro w/ Leo OS v11, successfully.

How to resolve the issue (rather, how I resolved this issue):

From the desktop computer, connected to 2WIRE:

1) Open a browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254. This site will automatically detect your settings and provide the necessary info., required to set up your wireless network.

NOTE: NTWK information/settings for THIS router can NOT be retrieved via traditional methods. Ignore all other information that assigns a name to your network and/or password. Follow only this wizard, for success in setting up your wireless connection.

2) Verify that your Firewall and System settings are correct and up-to-date. If not, update your software by pressing the link on the right.

3) Click the Home Networking tab (at top of page):

Locate @ the right of your screen, "Status at a Glance".
Under "Home Network", verify:
"Ethernet = x"; (where x = $1)
"Wireless = 0" (ZERO IS OKAY!)

("Zero" will change to "1, 2, 3, etc.," upon successful connection of ea. new wireless device(s) added to the NTWK).

* Once a new wireless device is initially and successfully connected to the NTWK, the LCD wireless indicator of the router will illuminate green.

4) Under "Wireless Settings":

NOTE, the network name. This is the name (of Network) that you will use to connect your wireless device(s).

The default password is the 10-digit number [in brackets] displayed on the sticker, located on the bottom of the router (directly above the UPC code, below the SN).

5) Click "Edit Settings":

In the DEVICE YOU ARE ADDING, click or type in the name of NTWK, as stated under "Wireless Settings". Next, type in the 64-bit WEP password (10-digit number displayed on the sticker, located on the bottom of the 2WIRE router).

6) Click "Verify your Home Network".

Verify the wireless device you added is displayed and has been added to the NTWK.
The Ethernet setting should still remain = 1 (or however many devices are connected to the INET via wire) and Wireless should = 1 (or more, if +1 device has been added).
NOW, the wireless LED shall be glowing the same pretty green, as all the other indicators on the router! You are now connected. Congratulations!
