I have a HP computer that has thier cable modem service setup and when they plugged it into the computer it said "Limited Network Connectivity..." so I took it home and plugged it into my network which has a D-Link Gaming Router to work on it and it connected fine? I hooked it back up to the new cable modem and it said the same thing (Limited Network Connectivity...)? I hooked up my laptop to the new cable modem to check that its working and yes it is working fine my laptop worked on the new cable modem. So I plugged the HP computer back into the new modem and rebooted both devices and still the HP would get the "Limited Network Connectivity..." I unplugged the ethernet cable and I do get the red-x on the network icons so I know it sees the ethernet cable connection. I then plugged it back into my home network and the HP computer would find and work fine on my network?
I wanted to see if it would work with another router since they were looking at adding a laptop down the road..I connected the HP to a brand new Media brand router and it would still give me the "Limited Network Connectivity..."??? I did the dnsflush and repaired the Winsock IP and nothing worked. I then tried to plug it into a older Linksys 54G router and same problem "Limited Network Connection..." This started driving me crazy?!! The computer will not see any other router or the new cable modem? It will only work when I plug it into my home network? It will not work when plugged into a brand new router or a working older Linksys router?? I am at a lost and do not know if its software or the network card?? Any help will be greatly appreciated!!
