Hi all, I need help again!

Just set up the girlfriend's computer at our place, but I'm getting a "Limited Or No Connectivity" message coming up when trying to get online.

I am using a belkin dongle which worked fine on the previous computer, connecting to the same belkin router downstairs as it was doing before. And I doubt its an internet problem as its running fine wirelessly through the laptop at the mo.

The computer is running Windows XP.

Any help would be really good, and will leave rep for all decent help given.

Is the wep/wap key the same as the password? If so, then yes as its all numbers.

if you have done all the other members have already said thencheck her … if you have done all the other members have already said thencheck her firewall, this used to happen A LOT with my wireless laptop my firewall blocked it



Thanks, I disabled the firewall but still no joy. I might just uninstall all the internet security and try again.

switch off the router then switch it back on again.

Disable the WEP/WAP key and try and see if you have access to the router. If this work, switch it back and right click on the icon (button right side of the screen and select repair.

I would definitely say your're not entering the WEP/WPA key properly. Log onto the router's config page using a wired PC and go to the wireless configuraion. Ensure you've written down the WEP/WPA key properly. It WON'T be the same as the router config password.

Agreed, just incase you dont know how to, look on the back of your router and find the ip address should be such as 192.168.0 etc, use the main pc, go to security settings on the left, scroll down and just make sure the wep/wap kep ticked is exactly the same as what you are entering (sorry if you do know how to do it:))
