I've been experiencing this recently, usually dissapears when I reconnect my cables from my router but now it's pretty persistent. My internet connection works fine, but I can't connect to my LAN. It would be great if someone could help me out with this. Thanks in advance.

Router: Linksys BEFSR41

Ethernet card: Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC

Could you give a description of the steps you take to correct the problem and also how it appears. It could be a router or a cable problem.

I just restart my computer and turn my router on and off to correct the problem usually. I've also tried reinstalling the driver for my ethernet card, checked the cables, and released my ips but I still get limited or no connection status.

My Linksys BeFSR41 died recently, so it may be an intermittent problem with the router that will eventually become a permanent problem. This would be my first guess as it seems to clear up if you reboot everything. Does it remedy itself if you just reboot the router?

If I could recall correctly, I think it does. But now I'm not connected to my router just directly to the modem. I still do get the Limited or no conectivity message.

Well then, that would suggest the issue is with your PC/NIC. Which card do you use? It may be worthwhile to update the drivers for your card. Also make sure you have done a Malware sweep to remove any potential software problems.

You could also remove and reinstall the driver as that may correct the problem.
