    Hey folks, I've stumbled upon a problem.
    It seems that my Netgear Wireless Router isn't working for me.

    Everytime I connect to it, I get a "Limited or No Connectivity" message.
    I'll have full bars, but still - I'll get this message.

    It isn't my ISP - I've been able to hook my Ethernet cord straight from the router to the laptop and been successful.

    So, what's the problem doc? [​IMG]

    If you are using the icon(in XP) to check if it is limited or no connection, right click it and repair/diagnose it. It fixes it for a while, but the problem usually came back for me. If you are using Vista, you do the same thing but it will ask you which option to fix it and the problem is usually that you have to renew your IP or something like that for limited connectivity.

    Have you allowed you internet connection to be shared?

    Nope...none of those help.
    It connects fine on my Mac and my aunt's eeePC.
    But, for the DS and my laptop - it still gets problems.

    Anything else you guys can think of?

    You entered the network key incorrectly. Verify the key, if you still cannot connect, make a new network, network key, etc.

    I work for an ISP and anytime a customer gets that message, it's the network key. Remember it's 0-9 and A-F only. Alot of people make the mistake of thinking 5's are S's, 1's are I's, 0's are O's, etc.

    Also, be sure that the router is set to allow more then your aunt's mac and pc to connect. You can verify that in the router settings to see the number of connectible devices. Chances are, it could be set to only allow two devices at a time.
