I am using a wireless connection to my laptop running Windows XP. For ages I have been getting the "limited or no connectivity" message - even though the signal strength is excellent - mainly when I change User Accountsor come back after being away a long time. I am with TalkTalk and their diagnostics come into force. The one thing they keep coming up with is that some sort of network thing is configured to a static address instead of getting a new one each time. It usually sorts it out or I click on "Repair" and it seems to re-connect ok but it is becoming a real drag. I hoped that by writing to a beginners forum I may be able to understand the answer. I had thought that there was a Windows patch? for this but am not sure which bit needs to be re-configured. I was with Namesco before and had the same thing so I don't believe that it is the ISP. If anyone can try to help me in 'baby steps' I would appreciate it very much.
Ambra4 I have worked through the first 'click here' process. There were no changes to be made but I worked it all the way through to the end. I will wait a while to see if the problem reoccurs before I set out on the second 'click here ' procedure. Thanks for your help to date.
