I really hope someone out there can help, have been at this for hours now but still no joy. ok story have belkin wireless router on main pc in office and trying to connect my pc in the bedroom to it, my boyfs ps3 connects fine. i have installed a netgear wireless usb adapter and that is all fine and says that it is connected to the wireless. but the wireless connection icon at the bottom right of the screen has status with exclamation mark saying limited or no connectivity. also says the same when i go into my network connections and right click on the wireless icon. i think it must be something to do with my settings on my pc but dont know what could it be the ip address, it shows as different one at mo have changed it to the same one as the main router and office pc but it then just says acquiring ip address and doesn't do anything else. if someone would be able to help me i would be so grateful im this close to throwing the pc out the window!
