Linksys router - limited connectivity.

Hi everyone.

Got the following setup:
Linksys 4 port modem router (model no: WAG54G-XW,
5 port belkin switch plugged into it.

For the past few weeks I have lost the connection every few hours or so, this is a bit annoying but not a 'big' problem.

However, now when I plug my laptop into either the router or the switch I get a box saying that the connection has limited or no connectivity. It says that it can't get an IP address from the DHCP server (router), so now I can't access the internet.
I have checked the cable by using a different one, and indeed plugged it into a different port on the router.

But still it doesn't work.

Please someone help!

Many Thanks

I just sorted it.

It appears to be that it was my laptop at fault and not the router.

I used my XP disc to do a repair and everything is now working fine.

Thanks, James
