    I just reformatted windows XP pro and put all the drivers back on. I connect to my buddy's wireless signal who lives next door all the time with no issue. I picked it up last Thursday and had no problems. Now I can pick it up just fine but get the Limited or No connectivity deal every single time even with strong signal strength. My other computer has no problems with the signal. I don't know if this matters or not but even when i click to connect to a secured connection it will connect with limited or no conn. even though I dont have the password. I will paste the IPCONFIG/all below. Any help is appreciated.

    If you have any wireless security enabled, make sure you have the correct key being used on the laptop.

    Or as a test, temporarily turn off wireless security on the router and try and connect.

    I don't think that is the issue. I connected to the wireless account last thursday and my other computer is connected to it right now. It is an unsecured wireless account and the limited connectivity has only just now become a problem on this one particular problem. Does anyone know of a guide or something that I can follow to try and reset my wireless card to original settings?

    Better yet, get your own internet access, read the forum rules, and stop asking for help in accessing your "buddy's wireless signal who lives next door."

    Of course getting all this information from the beginning would have been helpful. There is no way otherwise to know what was done and what wasn't.

    Is there any more information you can provide?

    What other information would be helpful?

    Terry:

    I called him my "buddy" because we are friends from work and I pay give him some cash each month to use his signal. I connect this way because I am moving out soon and can't enter into a contract.

    Taking you at your word that this is not a long term arrangement, I can think of two things.

    Make sure that you don't have a 3rd party firewall (internet security) blocking everything (even getting an IP configuration).

    Make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter--if it is integrated get the driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site.

    Ok, I can't count. Thirdly, double check in Device Manager to make sure you don't have any yellow warnings (missing drivers).

    Any other troubleshooting that has been done?
    Do you see the correct wireless connection?
    What changes have been made since it last worked?
    Any other networking related information?

    I assumed that the last time you successfully connected was before the Windows re-install. Is this correct?
