I am troubleshooting my dad's netbook (an Acer AspireOne), that he has been complaining about network issues with. I myself have witnessed strange intermittent issues with it. I tried to get it to connect to my insecure (MAC filtered) WAN that I keep for troubleshooting, and it simply refuses to do much of anything. It gave me the generic "Limited or no connectivity" message after a few seconds. Upon further investigation when I tried to renew the DHCP IP address from the command line it told me "An error occurred while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection: The RPC server is unavailible". I have checked the running services and nearly everything is running including the RPC service.

A google search has turned up next to nothing aside from ensuring the services are running, restarting them, setting them to Auto start, and rebooting. Advice?

What happens if you connect it on wired first? Sometimes establishing a strong connection on router/modem either wired or wireless will bring out the limited connectivity notification. So it would be better if you wait a little while. What particular connection are you having limited connectivity, wired or wifi? What error messages on browser when trying to go online? Is this a home network?
