Hi there

I am having trouble connecting to my router wirelessly at home.It works fine connecting using the wire. It is a work laptop and works fine in work.

I have gotten it working before at home but am not sure how I achieved this. When I did get it to work/connect, the 2 times I can think of, I am sure it had "limited or no connectivity" initially and then somehow fixed itself. All I might have done to help this was ping a few addresses like the default gateway below, 169.254.109.225, and 127.0.0.1 and 192.168.1.1. I don't think in pings succesfully for these two: 169.254.109.225, and 192.168.1.1 when in this state "limited or no connectivity".


Below is what I get when I have "limited or no connectivity" showing wirelessly

H:\>

I have tried to do the below, with no sucess.

On the computer that is saying "limited or no connectivity" open a command prompt and run these two commands:

netsh int ip reset reset.log


netsh winsock reset sock.log

After the second command it will tell you that you need to reboot to finish applying the winsock reset.


Can anyone suggest anything it is much appreciated.
Also if there is any more info I can provide please let me know, cheers.

wireless card defaulting to windows assigned ip tells me it is not receiving an answer from your router, set up as close to router as you can when troubleshooting. access router software from wired connection to make sure wireless ability is set up there. remove any security such as wep key and try to connect. first work on making the connection then add security later, such as wep key. good luck
also you can try setting ip manually. subnet mask will be the same as your working connection
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.x
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

Caperdog gave some sound advice. Connect to the home router with an Ethernet cable and surf into the router. I see you have a Belkin but your default gateway is 192.168.1.1, the 3 Belkins I have had used the address 192.168.2.1. But that's neither here nor there. Once in make sure wireless is turned on and disable any security that is setup to eliminate that as an issue. Let us know what you find =)

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

I had the same problem with my wireless router. I found that other wireless router signals were interfering. I changed the frequency on my router (to Channel 7 - 2442Mhz) and the problem went away.
Hope this helps... :thumbsup:
