    I'm running Vista Home Premium 64 bit on an HP dv5-1015nr. My internet connection works fine when I am wired to a router or modem, but whenever I try wireless (on any router) it works for about 20-30 minutes and then I get a Limited Connectivity error. The only way to fix it is to either connect with an ethernet or to restart my computer.

    I have the latest drivers according to the HP website - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...us&dlc=en&submit.y=0&submit.x=0&lang=en&cc=us. Device manager under Network adapters shows two things: Broadcom 4321AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n Wi-Fi adapter and Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller. I have no firewalls on other than windows firewall.

    I've looked up other threads about this and I've tried everything I could find but nothing has worked.

    Let's add some pings when you can't connect.


    Try these simple tests.

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

    NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

    Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    PING <computer_IP_address>

    PING <default_gateway_address>

    PING <dns_servers>

    PING 74.125.45.100

    PING yahoo.com

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

    <computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

    <default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

    <dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.


    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
