    Default [Solved] Connected with Limited Access

    Could you help me out with this ...

    This laptop was previously sorted out on http://www.freepchelp.uk/threads/161...g#.WRNyP4jyu70

    It has largely remained unused having been replaced by a iPad but each time it has been turned on it has worked perfectly.

    Someone has found a use for it and I was just checking to see if anything needed removing before I passed it on.

    It runs normally apart from the internet connection ... on wireless it says it is connected but with limited access.

    I connected a cable to my router but it still won't connect

    Thank you

    Ray

    Hi Ray,

    To confirm:
    There is no internet access at all - by cable or wireless ........is this correct ?

    As you are selling the machine - have you removed software / files etc. ?
    What exactly have you done in preparation for the sale ?

    Take a look in Device Manager:
    Start > type in ......devmgmt.msc .....hit ENTER
    Click the > next to "Network Adapters"
    Are there any yellow exclamation marks or red Xs ?
    For those who understand, no explanation is needed.

    Thank you Ken,
    It says Connected with limited access
    There seems to be no connection
    It has the Ethernet cable connected and the wireless button is switched on
    I haven't taken anything off as yet ... I noticed there was no connection before I got started
    There are 8 entries under Network Adaptors none of them have a exclamation mark or cross

    Hi Ray

    Please go back to Device Manager and let me know what is listed there.

    =============

    Please do the following: [ check that "obtain ip address " and " obtain DNS server ...." are both checked ]
    click here

    Assuming Vista ?

    These are your two adapters:
    Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN
    Intel R 82562GT 10/100 Network Connection
    Please confirm - do you have internet connection now ?
