Hi, I've searched through the previous posts concerning limited connectivity, and have tried changing IP DNS settings, uninstalling/reinstalling my wireless network card/driver, but no luck so far.

I moved into a house that has an existing Fios modem/router "Actiontec M1424-WR".

My Wireless NIC card is A "Network everywhere NWP11B"

Using the Wep key, The Laptop recognizes, and connects to the router with excellent signal strength, but after connecting, says "Limited/No connectivity", and won't access the internet.

I haven't been able to find any info on my specific problem, so hopefully someone here can shed some light.

Thanks, Chano

Have you tried it without security? WEP is almost worthless.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

The modem/router has the default wep security in place, and it belongs to my roommate so I can't change the settings. My Laptop won't connect without the wep key, but does connect to the network with the wep, but no connectivity to internet. Please Help!
