    It is mate.............

    Its just the laptop I cant get connectted with I can see the network but its saying limited or no connectivity.

    I have just seen this in my other post would this be my problem from the laptop side of things.

    You can login to the router from username and password is admin

    From my laptop or home computer.

    I have just seen this would I do this in my laptop that is saying limited or no connectivity as my home computer is fine after the set up its just the laptop now.Confused

    To Configure the Router

    (Other suggestions are available by typing one step as an AOL keyword.)

    1. Start a browser, and type in the address box.
    2. Click Setup > Basic Settings.
    3. Under "Does Your Internet Connection Require a Login?" select Yes. A new item "Internet Service Provider" appears on the page.
    4. Select Other in the pull down. If it appears, you may select PPPoE instead, if you use it. DO NOT SELECT AOL!
    5. For "Login", enter an AOL account username followed by @aol.com. E.g., [email protected]. The login name and password must both be lowercase!
    6. For "Password", enter the AOL password for this account.

    I banged my head trying to figure out my problem, limited or no connectivity while visiting a friends home, had hooked up to internet with one computer, but was not able to connect even if wireless showed me connected, but with limited or no connectivity , which meant I was not going to be able to surf internet even if it showed connected..

    Turned out that I was using wrong WEP key,, and according to tech support guy site, that
    would create a problem. checked out WEP number, and sure enough had used wrong number... thanks guys for your help
