WIreless Network Problem

Before I went to a conference I was able to connect to my wireless network at home, now what I get is a "limited connectivity" message which translates to no connectivity. At first I was able to connect using my ethernet cord, now I can't do that. Any suggestions?

I have a Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network card on my Toshiba Satellite M50. One fine day, it was working fine on the network at home, and then suddenly got disconnected, and soon after stopped being...


I have the same card with Tecra A4. It was working fine with a D-Link 615 wireless router then for no reason it stop working I was able to detect my wirless network but no communication session started between my card and the router. I restrat the router and change the OS fro Linux to XP but still I have the same problem.

At the end I notice that in simple words my card cannot talk at all with the router. So I went to the router wirless settings and change the protocol from:
mixed 802.11 N, mixed 802.11 G, mixed 802.11 B
to only
802.11 G and 802.11B

Then it works fine onb both Linux and XP

Limited or no Connectivity WG111v2 SBG900


Limited or No Connectivity on Windows XP

Limited or no connectivity indicates that the computer cannot acquire a valid IP address. This is due to incorrect network key you have entered. We need to check the correct WEP key in your router's setup page. Here are the troubleshooting steps we recommend you try:

Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. Please click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click on Wireless Settings under Setup page.
5. Take note of the SSID.
6. Scroll down, look for the Security Options and check whether WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA (Wi-fi Protected Access) is selected.
7. If its WEP is enabled, copy the value of the selected Key number. If WPA is selected, take note of the Passphrase.
8. To configure the computer with wireless adapter, please consider the following:

Configuring the NETGEAR adapter and Saving the Profile

a. Open the NETGEAR Smart Wireless Settings Utility icon located at the lower right portion of your computer screen. It will then open the Settings tab.
b. Change the Network Name SSID to match the one on your router.

Tip: As an alternative to typing in the SSID, you can use the Network tab to view the available wireless networks. Double click on the desired network.

c. Click the Apply button to activate the connection.
d. Enter a name for your profile (e.g. NETGEAR to Home Network) and click the Save Profile button to store the current settings.

Note: The above procedure applies only if you are trying to connect to a wireless network with no wireless security.

If the computer is using Windows built-in wireless program to manage the wireless adapter, please follow the steps below:

For Windows XP Service Pack 1

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on to View Available Wireless Networks.
b. Click on the Advanced tab.
c. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
d. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Network.
e. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. The network key will be the Key or Passphrase you have copied from the router setup (refer to step 7). Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
f. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on to View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Network.
5. Select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. The network key will be the Key or Passphrase you have copied from the router setup (refer to step 7). Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab. Please ask assistance from the wireless adapter vendor for configuration if using a proprietary wireless utility (non-NETGEAR wireless adapters).

Limited connectivity


If the network you are connecting to has wireless security enabled, try to remove all the preferred networks and reconnect fresh and enter your network key.

One possible cause for limited or no connectivity is the incorrect wireless password set on it.

Asus 802.11 a/b/g wireless adapter problem


The problem could be with the wireless network that you are trying to access, or it has something to do with you wireless card tcp/ip protocol.

where you using the same computer now, when you had this issue with the vista? or is this win XP pc that you have now is a different computer?

if you are getting limited or no connectivity, that means that the access point (wireless signal) is not giving you a valid IP address.

you can try to add static to your IP settings, but this will only work if you knew the IP range of that network that you are trying to access.

please provide more info
