Limited access to wifi and more for unknown reason (laptop)

Q: Limited access to wifi and more for unknown reason (laptop)

My situation is a little bit hard to explain but I'll try to tell you the best I can; about 3 days ago my father cut the power to the house too replace a bathroom light without getting electrocuted. Ever since then my laptop has been playing up in all sorts of ways, most notably the poor internet connection (hence why I put this thread in the network area because I'm not too sure what's going on with it at all).

To sum up it's problems quickly: certain things tend to take a lot of time on it. Plugging in memory sticks, opening up new Windows, even the Internet. I do know that it isn't my family's wifi that is the problem, all our other devices work and my laptop has the same trouble with my school's Internet (also because it isn't only my wifi being effected). I also know that it's not memory or CPU related.

It pretty much turned from a pretty decent laptop of it's age to the slowest computer in the world within an hour.

Anyone what the problem is, or do I need to give anymore detail?

A: Limited access to wifi and more for unknown reason (laptop)

Ok, now the Internet has fully stopped working and some apps crash when opened.

I use a laptop and recently the wifi has stopped working for me. I can still connect completely but it says with "limited access," which results in me being unable to access the internet at all. The rest of the computers in the house work fine on the wifi and I double-checked the securtiy settings (WAP2 and all that) and it seems fine. What can I do? Tethering to my phone allows me to get on the internet and the computer connects successfully, but no websites will load whatsoever.

A:Wifi connection failed due to unknown reason on PC Windows V

rather than a pole, you need to give a lot more details

Make and model of the router
can other devices connect
how are you connected - wireless or cable
what device do you have - a PC, tablet, phone
What operating system OSX , Windows , IOS

So think about what someone who knows absolutely nothing about your setup would need to know , in order to help you

Hi, im having trouble with my wifi. The day before it works fine but then the next day i turned on my Vaio laptop and it says Limited Access to my home wifi. I tried connecting to other wifi but same thing. I tried resetting the router, disabling and enabling the wireless connection but all didnt work. I tried connecting it with the cable directly still cannot connect. Finally i did a system restore to the day before where its working fine, it worked. The next day it says Limited Access again! So im guessing 'something' made my wifi error after that 1 day and i dont know what to do.. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Wifi has limited access

Something i noticed : after i use system restore, the problem happens on the next startup of windows( since i use my laptop all day the problem happens the next day) and also i tried updating my wireless driver but it worsens the problem from Limited access to unable to detect any wifi nearby.. please help

there cold be several reasons.

first try ipconfig /flushdns, then ipconfig /renew if that helps it is a dns issue

if that doesnt help and you are using "homegroup" it may well be that for homegroup has connectivity issues on some mixed OS networks. you can verify it by making a new network connection using "workgroup". If that works you can then kill IPv6, and homegroup

Hi there everyone ,

I have an HP Elitebook 8460p on Windows 7 connecting with Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced N-6205.

I used to be able to connect a certain WiFi connection for a long time, then suddenly, the day after... Trying to connect, it connects for a second (i see white bars and connection looks fine), i open up Chrome which says no connection found (blank page appears) and then WiFi Signal in my tray gets a yellow triangle with exclamation mark [Limited-Access]. Since the problem started, I am able to connect through another WiFi connection named linksys_media that I never saw before and that is WEIRDLY having the SAME password as the one I am suppose to be able to connect to at first... I've uninstalled my drivers, reinstalled... Problem still here... The password is good... I don't know... Sometimes instead of writing Limited-Access it says No Internet Access... and with my IPhone I am able to connect with the password and connection works fine.... Please Help... My ex-connection was way faster than linksys_media to which I am connected at the moment.

P.s. I've found a post on this site with an answer that solved problem for many but I didn't have AVG installed and didn't find AVG Internet Filter or something like in my protocols...

THANKS!

Every time I start my laptop, I can't access the internet and get a "limited access" warning on my wireless network.
The "troubleshoot problems" option fixes the problem (usually by resetting the network adapter), but it's not a permanent solution, because as soon as I restart the laptop, it's the same story all over again.

I have a desktop (Windows 7) connected through ethernet and another desktop (XP Home) also connected over wifi, both working just fine.

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Network adapter: Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
Signal strength: fair (starting my laptop right next to the router to get excellent strength doesn't help)
Modem/Router: B-Box2 (Sagem [email protected] 3464)
Firewall: Windows Firewall
Antivirus: AVG Free Edition

A:WiFi limited access on startup

Most likely this is because of a preinstalled wireless connection software which can be uninstalled by going to add/remove programs. In most cases it's best to use the Windows 7 connection wizard.

I would definitely get rid of the "free" AVG as this software causes connection problems all the time.

Let me know if those changes have any effect on the problem.

Hey guys I need help please. I am using a Toshiba NB505 Netbook running Windows 7 Starter.

I usually access the internet via tethering my phone - and yesterday morning when I tried to play my morning crossword puzzle, I received an error stating that an important file "xw_control.xml" could not be found. I was using Firefox so I tried Chrome, with the same result.

I googled and learned (I think) that this file is possibly flash related, and I know my flash was out of date - so I downloaded the latest flash from Adobe.

Now I am unable to connect to the internet at all. It connects to my phone, but with "Limited access". And I tried a wifi location at my local library and it does the same thing - Limited access only.

I have restarted, shutdown, and done a battery-pull on the phone - to no avail. I have no idea what is happening, so I'm hoping you guys can help me. Thank you very much.

A:Limited access only when trying to connect to wifi etc.

I uninstalled flash to no avail. So I guess I can't blame that. How do I go about troubleshooting the limited access? I have connected just fine to this phone (and other networks) for a long time. Until now...

Hi,

so I came home from college for break and my laptop connected fine to my house WiFi on Thursday but starting last night (I didn't use it on Friday or Saturday) my laptop has "limited access" to my house WiFi. No internet access at all.

I went to Starbuck's earlier and it connected without any issues. My brother claims that it's my college's (unprotected) WiFi that changed my settings so it won't let me connect to the protected house WiFi but it worked fine with the house WiFi on Thursday night.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated

I have a new Toshiba (not sure if that really matters) which came with Windows 8. The other 12 people who share my wifi used Windows 7. I don't know if that's important.Main point: I am the only one in my house whose computer cannot use the wifi. I used it for about three weeks with not more complicatios than everyone else until a day or two ago. Now while others have normal access mine continues to be limited with not internet access. When Microsoft searches for a problem it says "Problems found: 'Wi-Fi doesn't have a valid IP configuration'". Do I need to do something with my computer, the modem, the router, or something else?Many thanks

A:Wifi connected with limited access

The other 12 people who share my wifi used Windows 7Although routers can connect multiple devices at the same time by wireless there are some obstacle you must check first like the distance and interference. The wireless feature of the router such as channel and signal would be the clear probable solution. Depending also on your router, look for an updated firmware version that might stabilize your whole connection and try updating your network adapter if available.

I am not sure why, but my laptop at the office constantly goes to limited connectivity only. If I disconnect and connect it will work again, but then the cycle repeats anywhere between 2 minutes after to a couple of hours.

There are lots of other computers in the office and only mine is doing this. I have gone into the cmd prompt and run an ipconfig dnsflush release and renew. I have gone to the intel website and installed the newest drivers from my wifi chip and if anything it might be happening a bit more often.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

I am at a loss of what to try next, it would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me out. I am happy to follow instructions posted and provide any log files that you think may be of use.

I have the following situation. I'm running Dell Latitude D630 with Windows 7. Using built-in WiFi, at home connecting to Router from AT&T UVerse

Everything worked fine for months. Now I have the following situation. It finds the WiFi, and connects, but with only "limited access". The network status says:
Limited Access
IPv4 Connectivity: No network access
IPv6 Connectivity: No network access
Media State: Enabled

After doing the diagnostics, it said the following:
Problems found:
"Wireless Network Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration

Well, clearly it doesn't because the DHCP didn't assign it one, because, hey, it couldn't connect!

For giggles, I entered what I know to be the right IP address for this computer, along with the gateway and DNS settings, and sure enough, it works. So, for some reason, the DHCP isn't working.

I am not sure what I've done to the computer to cause this. It connects to other WiFi networks just fine (Starbucks, hotel and airport networks, work network)

Also, although I'm using DHCP, in the router, I've set up each computer in the network to be assigned a fixed address. So, the set up I have now will work fine, but I'm sure that if I go to another network, I'll have to switch back to DHCP client on the laptop.

Furthermore, the home network wifi works just fine when I use the MacBook. So that means, the router is fine and is able to assign it an address.

A:WiFi started saying Limited Access all of a sudden

Just to clarify does the router give out ip's to any machine?
Are you sure that the Mac book is getting a dynamic (random) ip everytime and that it isn't just using the last one? have you tried renewing the ip on the mac book to see if it finds a new one (don't ask me how :P)

I would suggest rebooting the router and changing the DHCP range on it, if it uses 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 then change it to 192.168.x.1 (something like 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) it may well be the router has forgot to release the ip's it has previously assigned to devices and hence has run out.

It?s a desktop using wifi to avoid a long cable deployment. I?m using my husband?s machine, right next to mine, to post about it, over the same wifi network, but according to my machine there are either no networks available or the connection is limited, which seems to mean useless. The device manager says the network card and the wifi fob are working correctly, and i had no trouble until 2 days ago. I got out an old, long cable and connected to the network with that, and for a few minutes Chrome said there was no internet connection while Skype worked fine. Now Chrome has found the network.
I tried the reset IP stack solution suggested in a closely related thread today with no luck. Utorrent had sent out an update just before this started, i tried deleting it and ran CCleaner. This has been an intermittent problem, as well - last night the wifi worked fine.

Okay, so I moved my wireless router to a more central location in my house (I got low signal in my room) and since then I've been able to connect to the network but only with limited access. Trying to connect to a webpage results in the "DNS lookup failed" error message (Chrome). My brother's computer had had the same issue, and the PlayStation 3 has had connectivity issues also, however I have been able to use my phone with the WiFi without any issues.

I've tried unplugging/turning the router on and off to no effect. Using a different router does not change the situation either. When I try to diagnose the network connection, it says that it could not identify the problem. Any ideas?

Some information:

Both computers run Windows 8
My phone is a Nokia Lumia 620 running WP8
The WiFi status window states that IPv4 and IPv6 have no internet access
My computer uses a Qualcomm Atheros AR5B125 wireless network adapter and says it is working correctly. The adapter is set to work with IPv4/6. IPv4 is set to obtain IP & DNS addresses automatically.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Having a bit of an issue with my home WiFi with a BT Homehub type A. At random intervals I'll get limited access and not be able to use the internet. This is quickly resolved by disconnecting and reconnecting to the WiFi. I thought I'd fixed the issue by doing the following commands:

netsh int ip reset reset.log hit

Hi, first post but very much need help. I saw similar threads to what my problem is but not exactly the same.

Basically I got a new wireless adapter last weekend. It was working fine, but then an automatic windows update occurred and I could not connect to the Internet anymore. It just says "limited access". I system restored to before the update and it went back to working fine. But now I can't restore to that previous point anymore so Internet is completely gone. I've not been able to get a cable to connect yet but I'm fairly sure that will work. However I would obviously prefer wireless to work.

I'm positive it has to do with this update but have no idea what and how to solve it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi gurus,

I'm having some problems suddenly with my wifi on my Windows 8.1 machine. This is a desktop PC with a small USB wifi-N adapter from TP-Link.
Every time I boot, it gets only a limited connection with my router. Simply disconnecting and reconnecting solves the issue.

The TCP/IP stack reset doesn't work. It gives me the "access denied" error. I have full permission over the netsh.exe (changed that already) and I run an elevated command prompt.

I have also already unmarked the "allow Windows to turn this device off" option, and also enabled the "allow download over metered connections" option.

This basically has me stranded ...

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hi everyone,

I have recently switched my work laptop from Win XP to Win 7 and have started encountering a weird WiFi issue.

When I turn the laptop on in the morning it auto connects to my home WiFi without any problem, but indicates that there is limited access and I can't use anything requiring internet.

So my first reaction was to disconnect/reconnect and guess what? It worked.

Now every single day I have to do the same manual disconnect/reconnect, which is getting old fast

I tried troubleshooting this issue and here are some conclusion I reached based on my testing:
- No such issue encountered with any Win XP machine
- No such issue encountered with any Ubuntu machine (12.04)
- Exact same issue encountered on my girlfriend's laptop (also on Win 7)
- My work laptop uses a VPN to access the company's network, but I manually launch it after the internet is connected, so it cannot have an impact on the initial WiFi connection

I have attached the result of ipconfig /all if it can help, but at this point I'm stuck.

Would anyone have any suggestion?

Hello all,

I have been having this "limited access" problem that prevents me from connecting to the internet. There is a "!" located on top of my signal bars in the icon tray and it says "limited access" under my wifi network.

This all occured during a malware removal process. It would seem the malware and viruses are gone but this problem still persists.

-All other computers and devices are still able to connect to the network.
-turned off router and turned back on.
-retyped network password.
-disconnected / reconnected.
Any help would be great, thank you all in advance.

A:Limited Access - wifi problem - occured after malware removal

Uninstall your wireless driver, reboot, let windows re-install it.

1. Go to Start Menu
2. Right click on My Computer
3. Click Manage
4. Click Device Manager from the list on the left
5. Click the + next to Network Adapters
6. Right click your Wireless Network Adapter
7. Click Uninstall
8. If a check box appears to delete the driver software for this device, check the box
9. Click OK
10. Restart your computer
11. Let Windows install the driver software
12. Find the newest driver software and install it from the Wireless Network Adapter's manufacturer site (if you need help with this, let us know)
Edit: Doing the above steps will require you to set up your wireless network on the computer affected. You will need your encryption key(s).

I am having trouble trying to get my wifi to work. All this happen right after i fresh install the os.
I never had this problem before until now. Usually, it would be working right after a clean install but i guess
my luck ran out. This happen ever since i bought myself a Macbook Pro Retina. Maybe my laptop is very jealous -.-

It is Toshiba Satellite T115D-S1120

I tried web searching, tried driver install but it didn't work.
Any help will be great.

A:Limited Access (WiFi Connection) after fresh install Windows 7

Plug it in via ethernet cable to your router or modem, enable Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3) and watch for driver to be installed in bottom-right System Tray. If it does, run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates which should deliver your other drivers including wireless.

If not in Device Manager click on Network driver for wireless, on Driver tab have it Update Automatically.

If that fails import the Wireless driver from the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC using the Serial Number or model number, choosing Wifi or Wireless LAN and the bit version. Download the isntaller, unzip, rightclick on Setup to run, or browse into the driver folder from Device Manager>Network driver>Update driver>Browse.

If you have problems with any of this let us know.

Just recently my HP ProBook 4520s, running Windows 7 32-bit, has had trouble connecting to the internet through WiFi. I've been reading into it and looking around the net, but to no avail. It shows my home network and connects, but with limited access (no access to the net in my case).

I did a system restore in hopes that it would fix the problem, and I got access for all of 30 seconds before it went back to limited connectivity. I manually updated the network card drivers, and still nothing. It's leading me to believe that its my router blocking access (Netgear WNDR3700). I haven't had a problem up until recently and its only with the laptop. My desktop PC, game consoles, and television can all still access the internet, with the desktop connecting through WiFi as well. I checked the router logs and noticed several DoS attacks and was thinking this may have something to do with it (and possibly laptop being infected?).

Hi Am having connectivity issues on my laptop. I live next door to my father and use his BT Home Hub connection, all my other devices work fine but the HP laptop is causing endless issues. It works for a bit then gets limited and so on. Why is this problem so common on theses laptops, shouldn't this be one issue that should be focused from a products point of view as laptop is pointless without it, mind boggles when a company like HP has this problem. Really getting annoyed with this product. Thanks Mo Jogee

So I have this problem that has been bugging me for months. I use the public library often. I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook and it works great 99% of the time, except in this specific library. The wifi just will not stay connected. It stays connected in almost all other public and private places but not this library. Now it is a big library and I'm using the standard Windows 7 wifi software so the library wifi only shows up as a single entry in the list of available wifi networks. However when using inSSIDer I can see that there are 11 SSID's with a mix of channels 1, 6, and 11. The wifi is all open with no password. My feeling is that it possibly keeps switching to whatever signal is the closest but I'm not sure. All I know is that it sporadically will go to limited connection and I have to manually disconnect and reconnect in order for it to work again. I can wait it out but that takes longer.

Is there any way to have me stay connected to a specific SSDI or channel? Are there more optimized wifi software I can use besides the stock Windows software? What would be causing it do go to limited connection every 10 minutes. Also the connection is great 4 bars usually and it doesn't physically disconnect it just becomes limited and then there is no use. Any other ideas?

Thanks

I'm trying to fix my girlfriend's Windows 7 laptop after she had a virus/malware infection. I'm pretty sure we've successfully cleared the virus (an updated/full scan with Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware in safe mode comes up clean). However, we have had no Internet access since the infection. The wireless router/connection itself is fine (I connect to it daily with my laptop, as I am to write this post) but her laptop won't connect to it, we can't browse any web pages.

I may have made the problem worse in trying to resolve it. I stupidly followed the advice on a forum for some registry edits for Windows XP--deleting WinSock and WinSock2 from the registry and then restarting the computer in hopes they'd re-register themselves. Unfortunately, WinSock2 re-appeared but WinSock did not. I'm wondering if this has created a new problem (or compounded the problems we were already having).

In diagnostics, we currently get the following report: "Wireless Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration." I just ran an ipconfig in the command prompt and got the following results:

Other Devices work fine.
Same problem with previous Modem.

Problem:

Wireless icon shows spinning busy symbol.
If it connects fine, then it will Remain fine until the next Restart

If connect fails then yellow exclamation mark shows over TaskBar Icon.
Viewing connection it shows as Limited Access, but signal strength is 5 Bars
A Manual Disconnect, then reConnect will always establish a working connection (sometimes needs two attempts).

Signal Strength is ALWAYS Excellent, No other devices have issues with WiFi.

This is a persistent and long term problem which has "survived" improved Modem placement , ISP directed settings changes, and a new Modem.

[ Other threads all seem to be about No Connection OR Dropping/Fading/Poor Connection. This isn't ].

A:WiFi Limited Access, Signal Strength Excellent, works if I reconnect

Modem was the problem.

Recently the Thomson V8 was replaced with a telco provided Huawei HG630B.
The issue disappeared instantly, there is now just a little lag and then connection.

So problem solved.

I have a Gateway laptop, comcast internet, and netgear rangemax wireless router. I get a full set of bars on my laptop from my router but sometimes usually once a day when I go to get online the browser will not connect. If I click on the internet connection icon on the bottom right hand side of my desktop it will show I have a great connection to my home network but it says I am connected with limited access. I then have to disconect the connection and reconnect it and everything is fine after that until the next time I go to get on. I have a PS3(wired) and wii (wirelessly) connected to the router as well could they be causing some kind of issue? Like I said I can connect so it's not that big of a deal but it is aggivating to have to disconnect and reconnect 50% of the time I pull out my laptop to check email or what ever. Also my computer is usually logged in under my wife's account and she is not an administrator on the computer could this be the problem? Thanks in advance.

Hello everybody. I would like some help on certain connectivity issues i'm experiencing with my laptop. Please help.

Here is the hardware. Laptop ASUS A8E with Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN and Realtek Ethernet, ADSL modem + router TP-Link TD-8961ND, Desktop with Atheros Ethernet. Both PCs running Win7 Pro.

I used to have a Netcomm NB6+4W modem + router and that was problem free. Now since I have started using the new router I can't use the wifi network at all. The laptop goes retard after connecting to the network. It cant access the internet when set in PPPoE mode, cant dial when set in bridged, can't see the homegroup, or share files. Keeps disconnecting, cant open the router config page, cant use remote desktop, . . . . . and most surprising, if I try to hibernate, the screen goes blank as usual, but then it just waits, and waits, till I switch off the router, then it continues to save to disk and go off. I have an android phone and that seems to be connecting to the network ok, but I have to confirm. I have the latest intel driver installed. I have tried 802.11 g+n, b+g+n on the router.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Here is my WLAN config from the router, config from laptop, and advanced sharing settings which are the same for both Laptop and Desktop:

A:Limited/Slow/No access from laptop on WLAN

Where is this modem configuration page coming from because it looks like this is from a router and not a modem.

Please try the following suggestions and try not to overlook on any of these:

You might want to update your Wi-Fi adapter's driver to the latest one by dowloading it from the Manufacturer's site, it might help.

Also, please install and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector from the problematic computer. Double click the Xirrus Icon on his laptop's desktop, Tap the Printscreen key on your keyboard, open up Paint then choose Edit from the Menu and select Paste, then SAVE it. Upload and attached the file here.

If you are using the Vendor's Wireless Utility make sure that the Windows native Wireless utility is Disabled.

I'm using a MBP mid 2012 15-inch non-retina running Windows 7 through BootCamp.
I decided to update my installation to the SP1 and hence installed a few Windows essential updates. After the update, I realized that my WiFi failed to connect to any hotspot, although all were present in the connection selection dialogue in the system tray. On clicking connect on any SSID, it takes around 30 seconds and then says "Connection unsuccessful , Limited connectivity to **** "
Also, neither connecting an ethernet cable nor USB tethering from my Android phone seem to work. Any help?
I've tried installing the latest BootCamp Support software, tried uninstalling and deleting existing ethernet and wireless adapter drivers

MacBook Pro, Windows 7, Running OS X 10.8.3 and BootCamp 5

EDIT: I have manually update both the ethernet and WLAN drivers, to no avail

I'm trying to fix my girlfriend's Windows 7 laptop after she had a virus/malware infection. I'm pretty sure we've successfully cleared the virus (an updated/full scan with Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware in safe mode comes up clean). However, we have had no Internet access since the infection. The wireless router/connection itself is fine (I connect to it daily with my laptop, as I am to write this post) but her laptop won't connect to it, we can't browse any web pages.

I may have made the problem worse in trying to resolve it. I stupidly followed the advice on a forum for some registry edits for Windows XP--deleting WinSock and WinSock2 from the registry and then restarting the computer in hopes they'd re-register themselves. Unfortunately, WinSock2 re-appeared but WinSock did not. I'm wondering if this has created a new problem (or compounded the problems we were already having).

In diagnostics, we currently get the following report: "Wireless Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration." I just ran an ipconfig in the command prompt and got the following results:

Hi, I recently got a data plan for my HTC One S. The wireless hotspot that came with it will work on my family's iPods, iPad, and our family laptop, but not on my Toshiba laptop with Windows 8. I have tried my dad's iPhone's wireless hotspot, and it works on my laptop. When I try my hotspot, my laptop will connect to it, but it will only give me limited access, meaning that no pages on the internet will load. Does anyone know what may be wrong with my laptop or phone?

And then when I run troubleshoot problem, the laptop hangs up and there is no other option then to restart the laptop. I have been facing this issue since mid July and have tried everything under the sun. I am not a tech savy person but still I tried my best and did the following:

- Deleting and Readding wifi network
- Even formatted my computer
- Replaced the router for broadband wifi
- Did power management for battery, unchecked the icon which automatically switches off the wifi in order to save power.

Now I am tired, please help me, please help sir if there is anything I can do.

I installed Windows 10 2 days ago and since then I have an issue where my Internet will fluctuate between Connected and Limited, which prevents me from accessing any web pages or applications. I've tried everything from resetting the router, replacing the router, trying to do an ipconfig /release and /renew (which didn't work, I couldn't release for some reason.) I'm seeing a lot of some similar issues where people are running into issues with their Adapter Drivers and I'm trying to figure out if maybe that's my problem. I'm using a Rosewill RNX-N250PCe and I'm running Windows 10 as previously stated. If anyone knows what I can try to do and possibly walk me through it (with links if possible) then it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hello all,

I have just bought a HP G61-410SA laptop. When turning it on initially I wasn't able to find my router that is plugged in to my PC to set up an internet connection. After trying a few things it finally found the signal and I tryed to connect to it. The signal strength, from the laptop to my O2 router, is full strength however there is a message saying "limited access" and I am unable to load any webpages on the laptop. Any help on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated. If any further information is required could you be very specific on how to find it as most I.T goes over my head!

I tryed putting an extra ethernet cable in the back of my router and plugging it in to the laptop which did work but sort of defeats the purpose of having the laptop. I don't know if that helps any or makes a diffrence.

Thanks

Paul

Running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit, Service Pack 1

First let me say that I LOVE Bleeping Computer and have researched many topics over the years, but have never needed to post because I always have been able to find my answers by reading. This is my first real shout out for help, and any that you guys can give will really be appreciated.

My Netgear router logs have been showing an unknown mac address connecting ever since I set it up a few months ago (when we moved in to a new home). I'm running WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] security. I originally thought maybe one of my neighbors was sniffing/hacking, so I set up MAC filtering for the WiFi. The logs now constantly (every 4-15 minutes with long breaks occasionally) show the MAC being "denied access" to the router. I thought I was done, but have been annoyed that the connection attempts continue even after months of blocked access. Then the plot thickened...

I ended up changing my WiFi password just to beef up security a little. The router logs then showed my X-Box being "rejected" due to incorrect security (since it had not been changed to the new pw). It occurred to me that the router logs actually differentiated between incorrect security and denial of access... which meant that the attempting hack actually HAS the security password even though I'm running WPA2. To verify my problem, I changed the security password again and only allowed two laptops access to the router.... Read more

A:Router Logs Show an Extra/UNKNOWN WiFi MAC Address - Coming from a KNOWN Laptop

Re: "My Netgear router logs have been showing an unknown mac address connecting"
How do you know it is a WI-FI address (Thread title says it's Wi-Fi)?
Hey, how about quoting the exact message Netgear puts in the log.
Yes, I know Netgear's logs are dreadful. They don't show port nor protocol involved, still seeing an exact message might help.

There is such a thing as MAC address spoofing, but whether it plays a role here, I can't tell.

Is it only in the log or does it show up in the wired or wireless section of Active Device list?

I don't know why you suspect your laptop since you're saying these are inbound attempts.

Are those connection attempts occuring when the Lexmark printer is off or totally disconnected from the router?

If the data in the log matches your printer's MAC address, than my guess is normal activity of the printer announcing its presence on the network. And since it's not a wi-fi printer, your MAC filtering doesn't seem relevant.

If MAC is all you see in the log, and no IP, perhaps it's trying to get an IP from the router - do you have a LAN range of IPs setup that might be too narrow for all your gear?

Are you able to print?

Sorry for no help, but I thought I'd ask for some clarifications to this confusing story.

A:Brand new laptop (7-HP) wifi gets IP but no LAN/WAN access

Comcast does not supply Routers. They only supply Modems and there is NO WiFi in any Cable Modem. At least that is how it is on my Comcast connection and I supplied my own modem and router.

You need a Real Router with WiFi as what you are doing now is getting a Public IP address from the Modem when the system is Wired to the modem.

So run out and buy a router. While you are out shut the modem down, power it off. When you get back with your WiFi Router connect your PC to it, without connecting it to the modem, and go into the setup system and assign a different Logon password to the main section of the router and then the WiFi section and put in a SSID and password for the WiFi. Once all that is done then connect the router to the modem and power the modem up. The WAN/Internet port of the router will get the Comcast assign Public IP and your PC will get a Private IP address from the routers DHCP server. Whether it is connected by wire or WiFi.

Dear Friends,

I am encountering strange issue while connecting my laptop to my home wifi router. I have 4 devices connected to router and working perfectly, but my Dell laptop suddenly stopped connecting to internet. It seems to be connected to router, but says No Internet Access. This is new issue, since it was working fine along with other 4 devices in the past.

Tried doing some basic steps, like - Removing the devices from Network Center and adding again, Reset the Router, ipconfig /renew ipconfig /release..but nothing works.

The funny thing is when I do a USB/Wifi Hotspot Tethering using same wifi with my Android phone, the Dell laptop connects to internet.

So, Its clear that Wifi Router is Good, Internet is Good, Laptop Network Card is also good, but something else is wrong. Please help.

I recently purchased Counter strike source and I am receiving pretty laggy gameplay so I did a video stress test and I am getting 33 FPS at the most. I lowered resolution and every video option which made the FPS 55 but graphics were extremly poor so I put them ointo medium and I now get 45 FPS.

I friend of mine has similar specs to me except my graphics card is a bit better and he get rates of at least 70. His specs are Pentium 4 2.4ghz, 512 ram and GeForce FX5600 256mb and a net speed of 512 kb/s.

My specs are P4 3.01 ghz, GeForce FX5700LE 256mb, windows xp pro and 512 ram.

I have updated drivers and am still getting bad FPS.

My net speed is 512kb/s and I get a ping of around 60 on an average server.
 

A:CSS low FPS for unknown reason?

Have you ran a chkdsk, have you checked to see how freggmented your hard drive is .
do you have direct x 9.0c
have you used windows update recently .
do you have all the updates from stem when you fire it up .. maybe when you fire it up the game ( cs S ) is still updating the game .. to see this right click the steam icon in the system tray and select MONITOR and then it will show you if its updating or not ..
have you run spyware program ( s) adware programs or have you run your anti virus program lately ..
what servers are you connecting to LOW ping times or HIGH ping times .
in the game browser you can select regions as well to slim the list down to your area europe , USA ect.. check your settings in game ..
also what is the refresh rate that your running your game at .. to check that right click the desktop select properties >settings tab > advanced >monitor tab and see what it is set at .. faster refresh rates make better performance ..
tick the box that say "hide modes that monitor cannot display" then select the highest setting for your monitor .. accept the changes if it looks ok ..
then in the game check the same options ..
hope this helps .
i have a crap 9600 256MB ATI card and i get about 70 fps . with [email protected] speed and a 2400+ AMD processor . all settings on high .
who knows it works differently on different machines ..
cheers

A:Windows 8.1 Wifi showing "limited" or "No Internet Access"

Try rebooting the router & modem. Usually limited connection, means that the compute has failed to communicate properly with the Wireless Access Point, or wired router connection.

I have been using wireless internet on my laptop at work without any problems, until a few days ago. Now when I try to get online, I get a message saying connected with limited access and at the bottom of my screen where the status of the internet comes up, it has a caution sign, that says limited activity. I cannot get on line, but it says that I have an excellent signal. Please help.

Hi All,

Have tried to figure this out from a few posts here but my situation always ends up different. I have an i-mac that i have no troubles with, it connects via WiFi or a wired connection, with which I am using to post this. I also have a fairly crappy asus netbook with windows xp that i really just want to muck around with. It connects to my wireless network fine with great signal and what not but will not connect to the internet.

What I have tried : going into command prompt to ping. I can ping my computers IP address with no problems (not sure if this even means anything just saw it on another post) but there is no Default Gateway displayed when i >IPCONFIG /ALL. Im wondering if this may have something to do with it as I saw a suggestion to PING the default gateway in another post.

dont know if im heading in the right direction or not? any help from anyone that knows what they're doing would be much appreciated.

Cheers.

Hi everybody!

I would be happy if anybody could help me solve my network connection problems. I am trying to connect my laptop to internet via wireless router and modem. It successfully connected to router there is no internet access. I have tried wire connection directly to the modem, and it worked. I also know the wireless router is working fine due to we have phones that wirelessly connected to the router, and they are also getting internet access.

Please help!

A:Laptop wifi connected to router but no internet access

I would firstly, double check security and you typed your passkey in right.. sounds dumb but has fixed many peoples errors. Also make sure you didn't block your MAC Adrees.

If still no go, turn off the router security then try to connect.

If no go try updating the drivers.

If still no go then we got issues.

Hi,My PC started freezing autonomously about 2 weeks ago. There is really no rhyme or reason to the freezes. I have a CPU and RAM monitor running which have not helped me at all. Sometimes my CPU will be maxed out at the freeze point, but at other times it is not. My RAM seems to be fine.I'm running Windows XP Professional SP2. I have been unable to complete a full system scan with any anti-virus application be it on-line or PC based as my PC eventually freezes up during the scan.I did find my anti-virus program (Bit Defender) in a state where it was unable to download the lastest update pack. I was also unable to do it manually, and a full un-install/re-install was required to get the program running again. However, I was still unable to perform a scan due to the freezes.What ever has got my PC did a pretty bang up job.If I'm listening to music when the freeze occurs the audio sounds like a skipping CD or vinyl record. I have witnessed freezing during the Windows boot up screen. It has occurred seconds after my PC calms down after restart or not until hours after a fresh boot.Thanks in advance for your help...Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 5:56:45 PM, on 3/3/2008Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16608)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\...
