Limited Local Area Connection?

  Zebrapec 16:30 14 Aug 2005

Hi, I am using aol broadband at the moment, but on the taskbar (righthand side bottom)there is a picture of two screens with an explanation mark on them and putting the mouse pointer over them brings up a bubble saying;
Local Area Connection,
Speed: 576.0 kbs,
Status: Limited or or no connectivity
Can anyone tell me if this is correct? if not can some one explain step by step what to do about it please.

Which Operating System are you using and are you on a Wireless or cabled connection. Try double clicking the icon and then go to the support tab. Click on the repair button and be patient for a few minutes. It may or may not work but if you`re surfing OK don`t worry about it too much.

What should be the speed of your conection?

If the 576kbs is the correct speed for your connection, then it might be case of just disabling the message.

Go to AOL Keyword "SP2" for the patch.

Yep, Mattyc's absolutly correct. I've had this on several AOL PC's and it's always fixed by download the SP2 patch from Keywords.

Third vote - Why I didn`t remember that is beyond me.

I used to get the error message even after installing the SP2 patch.

I got rid of it by right clicking on the error message and selecting "Open Network Connections" and then right clicking on the LAN connection and going to "Properties" and ticking the option "Show icon in notification area when connected" and unticking the option "Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity" (if it *is* already ticked).
