Windows 7: Limited Access on wireless internet using different networks

Limited Access on wireless internet using different networks

I have an Acer Aspire One D270 netbook. I have had it for a couple of years and have had no problems connecting to different wireless networks until recently.

About 3-4 weeks ago, I started getting the ! image on my icon showing internet connectivity and a message saying limited access at one of the networks I use frequently (a wireless d-link at my husbands work) and have been unable to connect to that one since. Two days ago, I started getting this same message with the linksys router we use at home. Last night I switched to a different router we have at home and could connect.

When I have run the troubleshooter, it says it can't find a problem, or that I am not connected to the internet.

But, I am getting worried as it seems I am slowly loosing the ability to connect my netbook to the internet wirelessly in different places.

What can I do to get my connectivity back? It doesn't seem to be a router problem as this has happened at two different routers that are so far apart they can't talk to each other. Is it a driver issue? Or do I need to reinstall windows?

I am new here, and I did look for other threads on this problem, but those don't seem to quite match up to what my problem is (though they could be and I just don't have the knowledge to interpret what I am seeing).

Welcome to Seven Forums,

I'd look for an updated driver for your Wi-Fi adapter, it might help.
