connected with limited access - netgear dg834g v3

  ANDYCORCORAN1 22:40 29 May 2007

Hi Guys,

Please help. I have a new sony viao with business vista on board.

I can not connect to my wireless network but can with my ethernet cable.

The security codes are right, but it keeps saying 'connected with limited access'

Please help.

Many Thanks

First try and right click on the Wireless network icon and select "Repair". May just be a problem finding an IP address.

There seems to be a number of issues with drivers and VIsta so that may be paret of your problem. Have you tried setting the router securiry to WEP and seeing if that works.

Hi, Still no joy.

Tried both but still doesnt work. I am already on WEP security. I am also on shared security.

Any other ideas?

The wireless works on other routers but not my home netgear.

Please help.

Hi, did you manage to solve the problem? I have got exactly the same problem and I have no clue anymore what to try next. Hope you (or anyone) can help.

I had a similar issue with a xp machine connecting to a Bufallo Router on Virgin Media. The solution was to go into Device Manager and remover the wireless adaptor and restart the machine. At the next reboot the wireless adaptor was found and all i had to do was to configure the wireless setting to connect to my routers' SSID ( which is invisible ) and the connection was OK

Does the Viao connect with router wireless security disabled?
That would indicate whether its a security key/implementation issue or something like a firewall issue.

(Had to upgrade the firmware on my Thompson SpeedTouch to get it to work with WPA security on Vista.)

Could try making laptop fixed IP address in the appropriate range for your router.
