Re: laptop wireless connection
LImited access no internet service means that Authentication of your wireless network is not up.
You must know what your wireless encryption is and you can check your manual/guide for your router or gateway on how to access it.If you dont have it anymore than you can access your router by using your desktop computer w/c im sure is hardwired to your router.
By using your desktop we need to look for you default gateway by ff the steps below.
For win xp:
Start > run > cmd .... on the Dos window type in ipconfig /all
it'l then show your default gateway . It would look like this .192.168.xxxx
If you have your default gateway , w/c is your routers physical address Open your favorite browser and on the address bar type in your default gateway.It would route you to your routers page. Most routers ask for your username and password.When youre able to access your router you'l have a chance now to view or change your wireless settings.

Follow the following steps to resolve Wifi issues on your Laptop. Open Control Panel - Select Network and Sharing Center - Manage Wireless Networks - Highlight your Wifi Network - Right Click and Remove. Reset the TCP/IP stack of the windows system with limited connection status.
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.
SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION First you need to decide what type of broadband andInternet service you require and these are - 1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line. 2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service. 3. A wireless 3G network which uses the mobile/cell phone network and can beseparate or combine with your cell phone account Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include amodem/wireless router.
If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and yourlaptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFihot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access theInternet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to checkthe service coverage area where you need Internet service. Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to checkwith the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and thecost of the various plans. Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed themonthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider,their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installationCD.
Internet explorer... Under the address bar you should see "file, view edit,favorites, tools and help" click on tools, internet options and go to the connections tab. make sure you have nothing in the white box then click on LAN settings. I bet you have "proxy settings" checked. None of the boxes should be checked.
Make sure that every setting in the new laptop matches the settings in the router. If one setting is off, you will not get a connection. It is also possible that the router is set to only allow specific computers to connect to it. If that is the case you will have to add the new laptop to the allowed connections in the wireless settings of the router.
If no then on the PC/laptop that it was orginally installed-click on start and run and type cmd which will open up command prompt.
Type in the black box -ipconfig...
Whatever the IP address is for your default gateway type it in Internet explorer which will open up your wireless router settings and you should be able to open up wireless security and find out what your password is..
When this is done disconnect from your wireless on the dell laptop and after disconnecting connect to your wireless again and enter your password and see if that fixes things.
Does it say limited connection to network? You're connecting it through a wireless router right? Do you see your wireless router when you search for networks? I had similar problem with my previous Dell laptop. Wireless use to work untill one day it just stopped, found the networks, but kept giving me limited connection whenever i tried to connect. I found out the problem is linked with the driver. Dell laptop i had was also on XP OS. Maybe try reinstalling the drivers. After I formatted my computer and reinstalled drivers, it started working again. Hope this helps.
