I have a new laptop that when I go onto my wireless network it shows the signal is excellent but still says limited or no connectivity but it shows a 54Mbps connection. I have been checking all the things I can think of that may hold it back, it says the problem the network is not assigning an address. Any ideas will be appreciated!

You'll need to setup both your router and desktop to use WPA2 encryption. Follow the instructions given in the manual for your wireless router. In many cases the document is on the CD provided in the box in PDF format, so you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed.

You can generate a 63 character key here:

Copy it to Notepad as you will need it for wireless configuration.

I have the same thing happen to me.

I either wait a bit and it straightens itself out or

I restart my PC and that usually straightens it out for sure. :thumbsup:

But, if you haven't already taken care of what DaffyKantReed mentioned then that may be what you need. :flowers:

I think I may have it fixed, will know later after I kill the other two computers. They are doing some down loading hogging band width!
