Hello,
I have recently had DSL set up for my Laptop. I had to set up an LAN connection to my external DSL modem. I set it up the Local Area Connection according to instructions and when it connects to the modem, I get the message "Limited or no connectivity. You might not be able to access the Internet or some network resources. This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer" and only allows me to get a 100mbps connection. I clicked on the repair button and It tells me that it failed to renew the IP address and I should contact the person in charge of the network, myself. But I don't know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Barry :confused:

Which make and model of modem are you using?
Have you rechecked the modem DCHP settings for your network so that it allows internet traffic as well as local intranet traffic?

Open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.
