Hy,

well - actually I have got another exactly the same computer - you could say: absolutely fresh - with exactly the same problem ...

Actually, with my further exploration it gets a bit scarry:

- not only that NOD can update antivirus database inspite of 'no internet access' on wireless toolbar ...
- but (!), if I connect the computer to modem or router by wire, I get perfect internet access - however (!), when I plug out the network cable from my computer, it actually works for a few minutes also wirelessly (!!!) - thrust me no precashed pages - fresh google searches, random clicks .... IT ACTUALLY GETS ON INTERNET FOR A FEW MINUTES THEN FADES OUT SLOWLY BY DIMINISHING THE SPEED !!!

I am loosing my mind !!!

solution

with the efficient help from Microsoft call center the problem is finally solved

to make the very long story very short - nothing was wrong either with DSL provider, Microsoft or Dell ... the catch was in the Shrew VPN client (even when not active, some filter is active in wireless configuration ...)

tnx

well, we took the long way ... but when we figured it out, it was extremely simple: if you are using Shrew VPN (don't use, if you haven't yet ...), go to wireless configuration settings, click properties and uncheck 'Shrew filter', confirm and save ... and that's it ...

if you want to run Shrew VPN client again ... you will have to turn 'Shrew filter' back again ... and as long as your computer is on, also internet should be working ... do it everytime you turn your computer on ... (uncheking and cheking Shrew filter in wireless configuration settings)

also, do not experiment with Shrew settings as it will get you into even more irecoverable troubles ... but that's another story

Shrew VPN sucks !!!

Windows 7 & XP
 
 

Hello Guys,

I had this problem with my boss's Dell Laptop on Windows 7. It kept saying "Limited access" yet all our Dell XP office pc's were connecting wirelessly perfectly. It drove me mad for 3 days. (his laptop did connect fine before we went away travelling with it). I uninstalled the connection - re-installed it over and over gain. I even brought in my Windows 7 Toshiba Laptop (which connected fine). To compare settings.

In the end the only thing that got the Dell Laptop to connect to the wireless router was by Turning off one of the Network Adapters.

To do this: Right click on COMPUTER, then select PROPERTIES, then select DEVICE MANAGER. In there you should have NETWORK ADAPTERS. I had two a DELL one and a Marvell Yukon one. I DISABLED the MARVELL YUKON network adapter and the laptop connected to our WEP encrypted ROUTER straight away.

3 days of searching and this was the cuase. It was thanks to this forum that told me to try this.

Hope this helps you guys too.

All the best,

Rob (Oxted, Surrey, UK)

Hi,
Same problem on a sony vaio windows 7, 4months old all up todate belongs to my brother.
CHECK THIS OUT.
It works fine in this country wired or wireless but soon as he goes abroad to mates villas or ski chalets, he gets limited access. Then I get the phone call. I've tried most things that have been suggested on this forum.
Looking at trying to other things.
1) Turn off HOMEGROUP ( this will mess up the network at home but been told this can cause problems!!!.)
2) Change MTU settings from 1500 to something lower.(netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface The Name of Your Connection mtu=1492 store=persistent )
Both of these were made with out any really explanations as why in a new OS either of these settings would cause problems/conflicts.
I've also researched and found that unlike the internet access this problem is not limited to just a few, but to thousands of people.
