Specs: Windows XP
my internet was connected years ago from bellsouth (at&t now) directly to my desktop pc (xp) now I bought a new laptop (windows 7) and a netgear n300 wireless router. I connected the ethernet cable directly to my router. and my desktop (physically) to the router. I did the set up for the router for the wireless network. my desktop pc has a internet connection but I can't connect my laptop wireless. my laptop connects to the network but it says "limited access" and shows no network or internet connection. help please

Did you configure DHCP in the router? What IP is your PC now getting? Did you configure the PC to obtain IP automatically now that it is connecting through the router?

I connected the laptop directly to the router and did a homegroup on windows 7. when I disconnected the cable it kept working wireless for some reason. I'm not sure if that did the trick. but now it works... thanks for your help anyways
