A (very annoying) fix for the no connectivity wireless
Hi, i have been having the wireless problem where is says "no connectivity." I have found a temporary fix--you have to go into the properties of the wireless connection, then uncheck TCP/IP, and then click ok. After that, it should say connected. Then you have to open the properties again and recheck TCP/IP. It should then proceed to obtain a DHCP address.
This annoying procedure must be done at every boot, so it's not a very practical solution....good luck all.
Limited or no connectivity ?! No problem!
I figure out what is going on with the Limited or no connectivity. This is a problem that has a lot to do with your MAC address (network address or physical address).
Aperantly what is happening in most cases is that your network address is beeing change! And most DSL users have a router (not a home router) on their circuite, that means that people are not able to change on from one PC to another because the system router has a registered MAC address, so thats why you can't use a hub on those kind of systems.
a) Disconnect your modem for 24 to 48 hours, eventualy the router will loose the MAC address and will be able to accept a new MAC address.
b) Call your DSL provider and ask what is the MAC address registered on their router. Then change your MAC address on your NIC properties, under the advance tab where it says "Network address", click on "value" and then input your address (only with number and letters).
c) If b) is not possible (it depens on your NIC) call your DSL provider and have them do a reset on the router (that sometimes takes a day or two).
This solution works on most cases. Only if your DSL modem doesn't work like a router (you normaly will have a 192.x.x.x IP address on modem/routers).
I work for a DSL company, and this problem gets solve a lot on changing the MAC address on what it suposedto be.
So... is there a problem with SP2??? YES it changes your network address!!!
Good luck with this
Hope it works for something.
limited or no connectivity on wireless lan
just bought me a brand new sony vaio model t (ultra light laptop). went home and bam limited or no connectivity on my home wireless network which already is workong fine on my first laptop (dell d800) :confused:
SO tried all solutions here for few hours THEN i lastly went to intel site and updated my wireless drivers ... WORKS LIKE A CHARM NOW !!
my 2 cents !! :rofl:
And yet another solution...
Was having problems getting onto the Internet and got the "Local Area Connection - Limited or no connectivity" message for the first time 5 days ago. My ISP walked me through a bizillion diagnostics and reconfigurations, only to determine it wasn't my DSL modem, but my Linksys router.
Blew $80 on a new router (same model) only to find my little home network wouldn't work (the limited/no connectivity message). After 2 online help chat sessions and a phone call to Linksys, I still couldn't get the network to work. Another annoying problem was that, without the router working correctly, only one PC could get on the Internet at a time (via direct connection to the DSL modem).
Finally did a Google search on "Local Area Connection", "Limited or no connectivity" and found this site. :D (I'm amazed at how many people have had this same problem.) Tried a few of the suggested solutions from this thread, but unfortunately, I still had the limited/no connectivity problem.
Found another web site that said to simply go into XP and disable XP's firewall (because it was stopping data from being passed on to the other PCs in the network). Tried that and immediately had connectivity again...well, that and an extra Linksys router.
Only took 5 days to find a solution. :rolleyes:
Glad to have found this site, btw.
