Hello,

I did see where this question has been posted before and I read through most responses but honestly I am COMPLETELY lost. All I know is, I have my modem hooked up, my router hooked up, all appropriate lights are on on those devices. I am able to access the internet from my desktop. On my laptop however I am getting the "Limited or no connectivity" message. The signal strength is excellent and speed is 54.0 Mbps. I have already tried to click repair but it says it is unable to renew my IP address. I also did the scan one thread recommended I do and everything passed. When I click properties on the wireless connection status it says I connect using Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card if that helps at all. Help please!

can you access the internet from the laptop if you connect to the router with a cable?

I dont understand what you mean really. My router is hooked up with a cable that connects to the computer. I cannot seem to access the internet from my laptop at all.
