Specs: Windows XP, Intel Pentium 1.7ghz/1 gig memory
IBM Thinkpad running Windows XP sp3. I use this computer at work and at home on wireless network. At work it has been fine but at home I sometimes get the "Limited or no conectivity" message. I have not tried any solutions yet as it usually goes away if I reboot and if that does not do it taking it to work (where it works FINE) and then back home ususlly fixes the problem. Last night I was able to go online and google something but when I clicked on a link it did nothing for several minutes and THEN told me I had 'Limited or no conectivity' where just a few minutes before I was 'connected' signal strength 'excellent'. When I click on 'repair connection' it tells me it can not renew IP address.

As stated I have not tried anything, changed anything, and there is no one else using computers on the network. I am afraid to start changing things as it is more important that this work at work.

What gives?

Does anyone else use the wireless portion of the router at home? Sometimes all the wired connections are fine, but the wireless is flakey...can mean the router is malfunctioning. I would suggest a flakey wireless card, but if it is stable at work....takes me back to the router. do you get a strong signal? It can be settings, but lean toward the router....I had one......did the same thing.....but sometimes it worked ok, then I had to reboot the router multiple times to get the wireless working and then one day I replaced it....never had the issue since. Just like cars when things partially work, they can be a pain to diagnose. Now if 2 other users connect wirelessly and never have an issue......I have to scratch my head some more.
