    Can't connect to wireless network, given the "limited or no connectivity message". Occurrs on multiple laptops. Connected with ethernet to modem works fine. No routers involved. Problem began shortly after a power outage.

    ISP: Charter Communications
    Modem: Netgear Wireless Cable Modem Gateway CG814WG v2
    Connection type: Wireless
    Encryption type: WPA
    Adapter (on one laptop): Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
    Laptop: Dell Latitude D420
    Windows: XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3

    DHCP Enabled: Yes
    Autoconfiguration Enabled: Yes
    Autoconfiguration IP Address:
    Subnet Mask:
    Default Gateway:

    Attempting to execute ipconfig/release works, but ipconfig/renew fails "due to a dhcp error".
    Again, this problem occurs on multiple laptops. LAN functions, wireless network does not.

    I would reset your modem/router and re-enter all the settings for connection to the ISP
    There is a reset button on the back - hold for 5-10sec
    User manual here http://documentation.netgear.com/cg814wgv3/enu/202-10297-01/pdfs/FullManual.pdf - Page 60

    That is a Modem/Router by the way ......

    Otherwise the power outage may have had a surge and damaged the device
