Solved: Limited connectivity on Vista
Yes another limited connectivity post on Vista, sorry but I have read a number of other posts and nothing has helped so far.

I have been having terrible lag playing multiplayer games via wireless so I switched to a Belkin Gigabit powerline, when it was first installed Christmas eve it showed limited connectivity. After turning the network connection on and off it was fine for the rest of the day.

Yesterday I return to find it stuck on "Limited Connectivity". I have read a number of posts on here and tried a couple of things:

1)Rolled back to the 23rd
2) Swapped cables around in case its a cable problem
3) change the SPEED and DUPLEX to 100mbs full duplex
4) Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog
Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
Reboot the machine.
5) Turned the PC's off, unplugged the router and the Powerline adaptors and waited 20 minutes (as suggested in another post on here)

So far no luck.....

Heres my ipconfig /all output:

Any assistance would be appreciated, I really don't want to go back to wirelss (which worked fine until moving broadband providers last week )

Thanks in advance.

Let's do the easy stuff first.

Remove the power line adapters from the picture and run a cable from the system to the router. (This is just a diagnostic step, I don't expect you to leave it that way). First step here is to find out it's the power line adapters or a different issue.

Thanks...
I did as suggested and went back to connecting the router directly to the PC which showed the connection worked fine so it was an issue with the Powerline adaptors.

I pressed the reset button and looked at the detailed instructions for the Powerline sockets held on a CD rather than the quick setup guide. Turns out the quick setup guide suggested something to do in 1 easy step that actually took 3 hence the network not working correctly.

All sorted but thanks for replying.
