    Hello, my xp has had the "limited/no connectivity" warning for a while but it did not effect my connection at all until recently. i have zero connectivity now on my vista and xp while connected to the router. (sorry in advance I'm not very knowledgeable with networks)


    Its a wired network Modem(broadband) -> router(d-link di604) -> pc1(xp)/pc2(vista)
    i cannot log into my router from my browser, i cannot renew my ip from cmd as it cannot connect to "dhcp server"

    right clicking on my lan network icon and trying to repair does not work because it cannot renew my ip

    i have also tried restarting, disabling and enabling network card, reseting and unplugging modem and router, crossing my fingers.

    all the appropriate lights are on...

    im not sure what other information regarding this i can provide

    any help with this would be welcome
    Thank you

    Could be bad router LAN port, bad cable, bad NIC, corrupted driver, or a 3rd party firewall blocking all access. Before starting to check and eliminate those try the following first.

    (From a JohnWill post)

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    Can you successfully connect the XP to the modem (remember to power cycle the modem when changing devices)?

    yes im able to do that, that is how i am able to access this site. however on mouseover in the system tray the "speed:" of the connection is "speed: 10.0 Mbps" down from "100.0mbps" before this problem arose... could be related.

    limited/no connectivity alert is still present while directly connected to the modem

    That may be a good hint. In Device Manager right click on your ethernet adapter and select 'Properties.' On the Advanced tab see if there is a property that deals with link speed and duplex. If so the best value is usually 'auto detect' but sometimes a NIC just doesn't seem to get along with a modem or router. So, try other settings, especially 10 Mbps full duplex and 100 Mbps full duplex. If those don't work you could try the half duplex settings also.

    no luck, however on mouseover connection speed is up to 100mbps.. Limited/no conectivity lan speed is at 10mbps

    could it possibly be that my router decided it was the end of its time? typing up 192.168.0.1 in a browser will not bring up a login prompt

    I thought we were working on an XP problem, but with another reading I see that your Vista is also having trouble. So nothing is connecting to the router, right? Sorry for missing that.

    Reset the router to factory default settings (hold the recessed reset button for 10 - 20 seconds and wait until the lights stop flashing). If still neither PC will connect to it, it does indeed need to be replaced.
