So I've seen dozens of these on here, but none of the solutions have helped my problem.

My wireless network is called "bucca" and several people in my household use it without issue, but on my computer, I can't get rid of the "connected with limited access" thing. I can connect to the network but can't actually access the internet without plugging directly into my router.

I could use some help. Thanks!

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

Paste the results in a message here.

----------------------------------------------------

If you're not able to get internet access on that PC, you will obviously need to transfer the .txt file to a working computer using a flash drive, CD, etc.

----------------------------------------------------

Also, when did this problem start?

What is the make and model of the PC?

How long have you had the PC?

Yeah, this is from my laptop, which has the problem. I'm plugged in with my ethernet cable though, is that a problem?

The other info:
-The problem started maybe a week ago
-The PC is a Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop
-It's about 3 years old

Please post an IPCONFIG /ALL log while connected via wireless.

---------------------------------------------

Also, what operating system are you on?

What kind of wireless router is it? (Or at the very least, what is the kind of signal (e.g. Wireless G, N, etc.)?

The OS is Vista, and I have a 2.4GHz wireless B linksys broadband router. Is that all the info you need?

It's 1AM here in Florida, so I'm going to call it a night. I'll be back on in the morning to help, if somebody else hasn't picked up this thread by then.

Below I have left additional instructions for you to try.

-----------------------------------------------------

HERE is the link to the Dell Drivers & Downloads page for the Dell Inspiron 1420.

Once you're there, click the drop-down and select the operating system that the problem PC runs on. Then in the Category drop-down, select Network.

Download the appropriate wireless driver to a convenient location, install, and reboot the machine.

-----------------------------------------------------

If your wireless connection isn't restored, do the following:

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or Windows 7

Start, All Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:

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.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2/SP3

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:

Note: Type only the text in bold for the following commands.

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reboot the machine.

-----------------------------------------------------

If internet connection still is not restored, do the following:

Click Start

In the search bar type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter

Click the + next to the pane Network Adapters so it expands, showing all installed hardware.

Take a screenshot of this window and attach the file in your next post.

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

-----------------------------------------------------

I apologize for leaving you with what seems to be a small manual of instructions. Ordinarily I do not operate like this because it's confusing for the user, and also time consuming for me. Like I stated earlier, I'm going to sleep now so that's why I have done this.

Good luck, and I hope you're able to get everything working.

Have you followed any of the instructions I left you?

Also, I'm pretty sure I have all the right drivers installed. I tried that the other day and it had no effect.

Unfortunately, no. I'm hoping someone else will come by with some ideas.
