Windows 7: Limited Connectivity?

Limited Connectivity?

So I have a laptop and a PC. My PC is connected to the router/modem by a cable, and I'm using wireless on my laptop. Everything's fine except when I start using wireless on my Nokia C7, suddenly on the laptop there's LIMITED CONNECTIVITY. I usually restart the router and it works, but it's very annoying. How can I fix it?

Hi DavidJovanovic, welcome to sevenforums. It sounds like your Nokia has got a fixed IP address and your PC has the same address that it has been given by the DHCP server in your router/modem. When you restart your router, it will detect that the Nokia is using that IP and not re-issue it out to your PC. Check out your Nokia and see if you can set it up to get an IP automatically or make sure that you set up its IP to one that is outside of the range available via DHCP. For example, if your DHCP server in your router/modem is setup to use the range 192,168.2.2 to 192.168.2.99 then setup your Nokia to use say 192.168.2.120.

T-Home Speedport W503 V. Just so you know I used to have a modem plus a router and it worked just fine.

There should have been a refrence to it in your instructions for setup. Can you scan or provide the manual/instructions in .pdf format so we can see the way forward?

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?

Limited Connectivity
100% of the time, I have limited connectivity for my wireless network. I have a Netgear WG311v3 wireless card in my Dell E510 desktop and a Netgear WGR614v6 router. I get a perfect connection with Windows XP but the limited connectivity in windows 7. Any Suggestion?
