My brother's computer seems to have buggered up its settings. (Or more likely, the warez that have buried themselves on there have...:rolleyes: ) Anyway... when the wireless network tries to connect, it succeeds but fails to assign an IP and returns the error - "Limited or No Connectivity"

Now, I've checked his hosts file (which had been RAPED) so I tinkered with that and thats all sorted now. I've flushed the DNS cache. I've tried manually assigning an IP but couldn't find an option... I've checked that it's not an issue with the router as my computer is working fine.

He's using a... *cough* legit *cough* version of XP Pro.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

umm whenever ive had that prob its because the router is set not to dish out enough IP addresses for everyone... obviously you either dont use or have entered a wep key right...
apart from that, im out of ideas!

This happened to me yesterday!
Try unplugging the router. It may just be having a little whine!

When i have that problem i take the power out of the router for a few mins and then put it back in or restart and put it back in so i get assigned an ip at last.

ditto. It's annoying when the manufacturers always say "just unplug it for a minute or two".. but 90% of the time it does work. :rolleyes:

Yeah lol... it really annoys me having to do it though, if you don't leave it out long enough it still doesn't assign you an ip , and you have to pull it out and wait all over again

This happens either when the DHCP server is not doing its job or when somthing goes wrong with the security encrpytion. The WIFI card can transmit to the Access Point but the AP can't communicate with the client.

I usualy find it a lot more relialbe to assign a manual IP and just don't bother with DHCP at all.

just manually configure the IP address,so if you know it's let's say 196.345.500.02, just put it in,as well as the DNS IP address and the gateway and the lot. but the problem should be solved if you put in the IP address
