limited or no connectivity problems

We have had problems with our wireless network for several weeks. Initially the router kept losing the settings.

However I now have a problem where our main pc (which uses a asus wireless stick) cannot connect. We keep getting a message 'limited or no connectivity. Our laptop is fine and can connect to the internet without any problems. My hubby also connect using his iphone.

Do you think that it is the wireless stick (the icon for this still sees the network). Not really sure what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

Normally, with a "wireless" connection, the "Limited or No Connectivity" indication is because the wireless adapter hasn't "Connected" properly to the router to get its IP address. Windows defaults to allocating a "169.254" APIPA address (Automatic Private IP Addressing) which won't let you connect to the router or the internet.

Try "Removing" any existing "Profiles" click here and then go through the procedure to "Connect" again.

Many thanks for you help. I did try something similar last night and managed to get it working. Looking at your instructions it seems to be kind of similar and no doubt helpful for someone with this problem.

Thanks again :)
