    i have Vista on my Toshiba laptop and i recently got sky along with broadband. i Can connect with a lan wire to the netgear router, but i Cant connect wirelessly. It says unidentified and limited connectivity.

    i have tryed
    1 rebooting router
    2 manully enterring IP address
    3 Disable the DHCP Broadcast Flag

    i can connect wirelessly with a different laptop no problem.

    i use to have a belkin 54g router and that worked most of the time so i bought it again and connected that to the netgear and still the same issue ..

    ive been trying for a year now can afford to pay someone to sort it..
    Please Help....if you can .:(
