I get this message now for my network connection. Everything was working fine, until today.

I didn't change anything, all of a sudden there is a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in the middle saying "Limited connectivity or no connection" something like that.

I am using a router on win xp pro sp2.

No settings were changed, the message just came out of no where. I had to create a separate network connection for DSL and not use my router, only the DSL Modem to connect to the internet, but I still have that message of limited connection.

Anyone know how to fix it??? I would appreciate the help.

There is small M$-Patch(KB884020) for solving this problem; download it from:
http://www.microsoft...&DisplayLang=en

After downloading and installing the patch.
Download, unzip the attached SP2_connectivity_fix.ZIP file.
Double-click on the unzipped SP2_connectivity_fix.REG file to merge with registry.
Reboot PC.

If D.A.'s reg file doesn't work, you can try this:
1. Click Start, click Run, type "ncpa.cpl" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter.

2. Right-click the connection with an overlaid yellow symbol and click Properties.

3. Click on the "General" tab, highlight "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)", and click Properties.

4. Click on the "Alternative Configuration" tab, select the "User configured" radio box.

5. Type 192.168.0.2 in the "IP Address" field.

6. Type 255.255.255.0 in the "Subnet mask" field.

Hey Czarina, I didn't see ure message until now. I just removed sp2 and now it works fine. If I ever decide to install sp2 again, and this happens again, I will try what you said.

thanks
