Hi ...... please can someone help me. I have a netgear router at home, my desktop is hardwired to it, and I have two other laptops in the house which connect to it wirelessly - all these work just fine. I have been given a sony vaio VGN-A215M to clean up and I can't get to it connect either via the LAN or wirelessly.

I have gone round in circles and although when I open network connections thru the control panel, it shows the LAN as connected (this is an improvement on the limited or no connectivity message), it still won't connect to the internet. It will find the available wireless network and goes to connect, spends ages acquiring whatever it is it has to acquire, then although signal strength is excellent, connectivity is limited or non-existent. Have used all sorts of computers here and have never had this much trouble........ HELP!

ps I am relatively techie, but the dhcp, ip addresses and stuff like that goes completely over my head, so single syllables would be appreciated!

I would like to point you to a guide I wrote about Limited or No Connectivity here.
Please let me know if that is any help to you.
