Hello. I recently purchased a laptop. It has a wifi with Intel's Centrino stuff (Intel Duo core) etc. It has been working fine until just recently. It is capable of picking up network connections but any attempt to connect to them and acquire a network address fails and results in a "Limited connectivity or no conection" result. I was wondering if somebody who had more experience with wifi connections on Windows XP had any tips. I've done the uninstall/reinstall, reboot , delete conection/recreate, and even manually specify an IP. Nothing has worked.
Any tips ?

Are you connecting to your own wireless point?

I've been connecting to several that worked before. All unsecured, non-wep etc
It just recently began not working.

My brother's laptop was having the same exact problem (running XP too), even when it was sitting 3 feet away from our wireless router. I never sat down with it, but maybe check the security settings on any firewalls? Sorry I can't be of any help, but its happened to people before.
I had that problem. Right click on the little computer icon next to the time on your computer. Then click the "Repair". It shuld repair itself.
Does that work?

I tried all of the above with my wireless network. When nothing else would work, I tried unplugging the 12V connection on the back of the router for 30 secs, and then plugging it back in. This seems to work as a last resort. Why it works, I don't have a clue.
Seems like he doesn't have a router... just leeching off wireless from people in his building.
Why don't you try disconnecting power to the city block for about 30 seconds, that'll allow whoever's router you're working off of to restart.
