Connected with Limited Access, Vista!

I am having trouble connecting properly to wireless network on Vista. Have tried a variety of adaptors all with same problem: Connected With Limited Access. I don't know who can help as HP(computer), Netgear, Microsoft and BT (service provider) all say its nothing to do with them. Have tried the Hotfix on Microsoft website but also cannot install it properly. Any Help Plllleeeasse! This has gone on for months and cost a lot of money on IT support.

If you right click on the properites of the wireless connection and untick IPv6, does it help ?

Thanks for the response. I have tried this before with IPv4 and that did'nt work, IPv6 has no affect either.

In order to identify the problem, have you tried

a) that a wired connection works 100%
b) tried connecting the laptop/PC to another wireless network (or tried a different wireless router)
c) tried connecting another wireless laptop/PC to the current network that you are having difficulties with.

e) diabled all wireless security for 5 minutes and try
f) updated the firmware for the router
g) and hardware reset the router after update
