    connected with limited access

    i have a netgear wireless router, one desktop pc connected to it with a
    Ethernet cable (still working fine) and a hp laptop running vista connected
    thought wireless everything was working fine until one day the wireless on
    the laptop just stopped working and gave the message connected with limited
    access i have disconnected from the network and tried to reconnect however
    all i get is connection unsuccessful then i go to diagnose the problem and
    have been given some suggestions by windows help i have checked my driver
    and they are all up to date i have also checked that both ipv4 and ipv6
    protocols are ticked in the config for wireless networking, my adapter says
    working fine and i have checked that my WEP keys are still the same. can
    anybody suggest anything?

    i have read many discussion's on the internet just like my own and all i
    have seen have failed i thought i would give this a try before ringing
    Microsoft and Intel (as my wireless card is a Intel pro wireless 3945ABG if
    that helps)

    if Microsoft does read this please make some suggestions yourself.

    thanks everyone

    This used to happen to me a lot and I tried mucking about with both the
    router and my laptop wireless settings.

    I was about to buy a new router when I hit this forum. I tried a few of
    the suggestions mentioned. None worked, however, due to all the bother
    of having to get to know how to change and view all the different
    settings for your wireless connection I found the problem.

    The TCP /IPv4 settings had set themselves to use a set IP and DNS
    address when they should be set to automatically aquire one.

    I don't know what changed these settings, but having set it back to
    automatic IP and DNS, the problem has gone.

    If this is the case for others, I hope this post helps.
