I'm getting an error message saying "limited or no connectivity -10 mbps. I tried the repair button and that didn't work. It's telling me to contact the person who manages my network.Unfortunately, that would be me.

Hi NickU, and :thumbsup: to BC.
This error often means that IP addresses haven't been set up properly on your computer.
What else is connected to the network? (Router, other computers etc)
If there are other PCs on the network, do they give the same message?

Do you know what the IP address of the Router is?
Most use 192.168.0.1. If yours is set differently, then change these instructions to match it.

(Assuming Windows XP)
Start->Control Panel->Network Connections.
Right Click Local Area Connection, Properties
Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
Click Properties
Click "Use the following IP address"
Ip Address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Preferred DNS Server: 192.168.0.1
->OK
->OK

See if that helps.
If your router's IP is something else, say 172.16.104.1, then use that for Default Gateway and Preferred DNS Server, and use something like 172.16.104.2 or 172.16.104.15 as the IP address. Subnet Mask should still be the same.
