    Hi- It sounds like I'm having the exact same problem. My computer picks up a wireless signal and even says it is "very good" but then under "access" I have only "limited or no connectivity". Please let me know if you figured it out. I'm in Argentina for 2 months and I want my wireless to work!

    Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

    I've created a new thread for your issue here.

    Thanks for your cooperation.

    Please supply the following info.

    The name of your ISP and country of residence.
    Make/model of the broadband modem.
    Make/model of the router (if any).
    Connection type, wired, wireless.
    Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.
    Make/model of your computer (motherboard if home-built).
    Version and patch level of Windows, i.e. XP-Home SP2.

    Does the machine connect if you connect it with a cable? Let's see this:

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

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

    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.

    You would probably want to do this first if it is Windows XP:

    Right click on the wireless icon in the bottom right by the clock...
    Select on "REPAIR" And see if that does it for you...

    The "Limited or No Connectivity" Usually means an IP Addressing issue of some type or encryption problems...

    Let us know...
