If your neighbors know that your using their router, you might ask them to reset it. If they moved it, this could cause the weakening of the signal, walls drastically decrease a wireless signal. You might also refresh your wireless card by uninstalling the wireless drivers and reinstalling them.

My computer keeps connecting with internet access and then randomly after a while, it just goes back to "limited access" instead of "local and internet". therefore i dont have internet...


Seems that the wireless signal is too weak, or may be you are connecting to a wireless network of a neighbor instead of your own. Check which wireless network is the preferred one & make sure it is yours.

I have wifi internet connection but some time signal is very low


Install a wireless repeater, such as this:

OR move your wireless access point closer to the computer, or use an additional access point, or purchase a Luxul amplified antenna.

You could also get an external wi-fi card with a big antenna.

Hope this helps,

Cheers

I have an HP Laptop LAN connection will not connect to internet


The wireless modem you are connecting to is protected with a WEP key. You have to get the WEP key or find another wifi hotspot that is not protected.

You can also get a better antenna for your laptop to see if you can pull in another site.

My Acer Aspire notebook keeps losing its internet connection. I have used 2 different routers and the signals were strong on both, so it's not that. I've also downloaded what I took to be the appropriate...


If you are using the supplied Acer program to setup your wireless, I would suggest removing the program. In most cases, removing their software does not remove the drivers, and thus, Windows Zero Configuration will take over the wireless.
WZC, in my opinion, works very reliably and has solved this type of issue in the past, although it is not the only reason for disconnects. For instance; a weak signal and a lot of interference from neighboring networks can cause your wireless to become unstable.
If this doesn't fix your connection issue, you may have an issue with the wireless card itself.

Internet/network problems


Connecting the laptop to your network using a network cable, does this solve your Internet problems?
Does this works without the Internet connection dropping out?
If the wireless connection has a low signal, try positioning the wireless router or the laptop to get a better signal strength.
Also try reinstalling your wireless driver.

Inspiron 6400 detects networks but does not connect to internet


Make sure you are connecting to your own internet connection through your wireless router and not on your neighbor's.....limited connectivity means you are out of reach or signal is blocked....
