Windows 7: 'limited connection'

'limited connection'

I installed windows 7 32-bit RC on my PC yesterday and all is fine, except for my connection. Whenever I try to connect to my Wireless network, it says there is 'limited or no connectivity'. All my WEP settings are correct and the diagnostic said that the IP Config was wrong.

What to do?

First Hi and welcome to sevenforums

You can start by taking a snip (use snipping tool type snipping tool in search) and uploading it. what is you network setup (cable modem, router, pc's) and what errors specifically are displayed

A snip of what?

There are currently 1 computer and an xbox connected to the network. I have a netgear wireless router and it is telling me that the connection is 'unidentified' with 'limited connectivity'.

Ok where do you get internet from your isp, right? from them you have probably a cable modem. then the netgear then pc's.

You should
1-reboot the cable modem, then router, then pcs.

2-go into the routers web page (usually 192.168.0.1) and check to see if PPPOE is chosen as the proticol (you dont want it unless you have to enter uid and pword when logging on)

lets start there

let us know the results

Im sorry. if you go into your browser and type the numbers (i think netgear is 192.168.0.1, or if not its 192.168.1.1) it will ask you for a user name (default is either admin, or administrator) and a password (its usually either admin, or password). from there you can look at the configuration of the router, and change the default user name and password to your own (much more secure).

If you are confused abt its settings Im sure netgear has a user manual on their web site.

Lets try to set up the router first. I will be lurking so dont be afraid to ask questions if you need help

None of those addresses are 'valid'. It also says 'unidentified network' so I am not sure how much it's getting from the router.
