You are running wireless I take it. If you have a Netgear, Linksys, or D-Link then run the utility that came with the Network Card, and search for visible networks and reconnect to yours. Usually this problem is from a weak signal.... if that doesn't work you can also try reseting the router and the cable modem if you have one... after you reset both of those, reboot your PC so it can pick up a new IP.

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.

I am trying to connect a second laptop to my netgear router but I can only get limited or no connection?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, let's try a quick fix:
  • determine and copy the details of the Networking of any of the other computers that can connect without a problem including the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS servers;
  • open the Network properties of the LAN card or the WiFi card on the second laptop that has limited or no connection;
  • highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP);
  • click on the Properties button;
  • tick "Use the following IP Address"
  • enter the copied details (numbers) from the other computer;
  • the only difference would be that the new IP address should be slightly different;
  • example if the copied IP address is 192.168.0.11, pls make the new IP address 192.168.0.110;
  • all others stay the same.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

limited or no connectivity means your wlan not communicating with the router, check if you turn on the wlan switch on your laptop or try to install updated driver for you wlan

if thats a external wireless lan card try to unplug and plug it back.

Limited to no connectivity error on a Toshiba laptop with XP. What does this mean and how can I fix this? Bill


this means that you may have security enabled on your router and you have not keyed in the correct passkey in your laptop, or your wireless connection in control panel>connections is not set to obtain an ip address automatically in the properties tab

I am trying to connect to the internet on my sony NR32L/S laptop and althought i have full signal it says i have low connectivity and so i cannot connect to the internet.


if you mean limited connectivity, you must have the wrong password for your laptop to connect if it's secured, or you need to set your wireless connection in network connections to obtain an ip address automatically.

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.
