Solved: Wireless Connection - Limited connectivity - Vista
Hey,

I have a slight problem with my wireless connection.

I get a signal but it says limited connectivity, the light that indicates the wireless is active ( on the router) is on strongly - no flickering and whatnot-.

but i can't access the internet wireless-ly.

= (

any suggestions.

Oh and i have tried all the workarounds suggested on the microsoft site.

Ta

If your network is secured, try disabling encryption on the router until you get a successful connection.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I'm not sure about the encryption... (dumb question ahead!) Do you mean the WEP key?

I really don't wanna break it because it runs the desktop comps via Ethernet

By encryption I mean WEP or WPA or WPA2. Ethernet connections are not encrypted--I guess the thinking is that you can easier detect somebody trying to connect to your router via ethernet.

But your ipconfig showed another problem, before worrying about encryption.

Your ethernet is using a dynamic connection to a router with LAN address 10.0.0.138. Your wireless is using a static PUBLIC IP address with no Gateway specified. Assuming that you are trying to wirelessly connect to your router change the TCP/IP Properties of the wireless connection to 'obtain IP auto' and 'obtain DNS auto.' If still no connection, then disable encryption on the router and try that way.
