Hi

My laptop accidentally disconnected to the router while on line. It showed "access limit". Due to other computers and IPad still connected to the router, I doubted the wireless adapter might have problem.

When I brought the laptop home, the wireless adapter connected to the home network has been working normally

Today I bring my laptop back to the previous router, the limit access happens again. It does not allow my laptop connect to network. Notice that other computers and laptops connect normally with this router.

The router is owned by my sister in law.

Does the router misconfigure my ip physical address making only my latop not connecting to the router?

Thank you for your instructions

Best,

Open the web interface of her router & look for settings that might limit your access. One could be MAC filtering.

I have not tried the Web interface of the router yet. She go to travel for two weeks
I wonder if this is an accidence of router that caused MAC filtering or an intentional human being. Or is there any reason else?
Thanks

There are ways to hack a router. Poor encryption can lead to it being hacked wirelessly & I've seen some Belkin routers that had remote access enabled by default. Chances are that it wasn't intentional but I would open the web interface. If you want to wait for your sister in law, to return, that's fine too.
