"Limited or No Connectivity"
Alright i just moved into my new apartment from a college dorm, i had my computer hard wired at the dorm, but in the apartment i got a new linksys wireless-g pci adapater to connect to a Microsoft router. So anyway, i install the pci adapater and it says it is installed correctly, installed the drivers, and try and connect to the router,
i can connect to the router, but i get this message "You are connected to the Access Point, but the Internet cannot be found." Then in the network icon in the taskbar i get a message saying i have "limited or No Connectivity". I have full signal strength and am varying from 36 to 54 mbps, but i dont have any internet.
Ive done some research and I guess there is a bug with WinXP in the Registry so i downloaded winsock xp fix and that didnt help, and i ran some other patchs still to no avail. I then went into Command Prompt and released and renewed my ip but it won't let me renew my ip. I think this is were the problem may lie. When i try and release my ip i get this error. "An error occured while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has Timed Out." Im really stuck here and it is almost impossible to hardwire my computer. So if someone can help me here that would be amazing.
