I've read a small part in regards to the problems that XP SP2 brings to your computer.

You can try rolling back the drivers for your NIC card and whatever hardware is giving you grief.

Now as I said, I've only read a small part so this may or may not help you. But it's worth a try is it not?

Hi people. I have been searching around, trying to find a solution to my problem.
I am set up on a laptop with a WIfi card. My friend came round, setup with an Intel Centrino. I can't remember why but i disconected from the network, he connected alright, however. Whenever i try to reconnect i just get this limited or no connectivity pop up. I never had any problems like this before either.

Then my friend left, so i assumed it would be ok, but its still all the same :( . I don't know what to do. Any ideas guys?

Hi guys,

I am a Computer Tech. After much research, and after applying the Winockfix. the Microsoft patch, typing in "192,168.0.2" into the "Alternate Configuration" of TCP/IP properties, uninstalling and reinstalling the NIC, and doing the DNS flush, I found a solution to my "limited or no connectivity" problem. (These other fixes have worked in some cases on other machines except for mine.)

My network card was a Realtek RTL8139/810X. I changed the driver to one I downloaded from Realtek. After installing the RTL8139 (without /810X) driver, the problem was fixed. So the problem in my case was with Win XP SP2s NIC driver update. Hopefull, this will help someone.

This didn't work for me. I did get connectivity again, but the Internet and outlook couldn't find the server...

A very, very big thank you to everyone on this forum who have suggested to make a static IP address!!! I have been playing around with different solutions for over a week now with my wireless network and although some things appeared towork at first, the good ol 'limited or no connectivity' kept coming back...

Just one thing to add: in addition to IP address and subnet mask, make sure you also specify a default gateway (the IP address of your router ie. probably I didn't do this at first and could connect to my router, but not get on the internet. Was very scared at first that this solution didn't work either, but after a bit of playing around it now seems to be fine... fingers crossed.

I'm having this limited connectivity problem but not over wireless. I just have two NIC cards in my machine. One to the modem and one to the xbox. Swapping cards or cables does nothing, neither does the winsock fix. The xbox is fine on my friends network but not on mine. Strange. Why can't that second card communicate with it?

I battled this one for days trying all the suggestions. Turned out I had to enter my WEP key in HEX values. Once I did that. Everything worked! I was using the key that printed out from the router for manually setting up your other machines. But when I looked at the value online for the router it was in hex so I tried it and it worked. FINALLY! I was just about to shell out $100 to the Geek Squad! :D

Ive been having the same problem, and have tried everything suggested above, to fix it. but no avail. i recently built the system experiencing the trouble, and for about 4 weeks it ran fine, with sp2 installed. then it just came up with the little window, 'limited or no connectivity', and it hasnt been able to connect to the internet since. i set a static ip, the connectivity warning goes, but it still cannot connect to the internet or network. when you click on the network places, then network computers icons, it can only see itself, but other computers on the network can see it aswell, although they cannot access it. i am starting to get exasperated, and cannot think what to do, help please anyone

p.s. im going to try a different driver in the meantime, but any tips/help will be greatly appreciated, thanks

If you guys never got anywhere with this - here is what saved the day for me: Two new Dell Notebooks, WiFi, working great, SP2 installed, still OK, installed SSH Sentinel VPN Client - limited or no connectivity
on both Notebooks! - 1'st NB - installed MS patch (KB884020) no go,
2'nd ND - unticked Qos Packet Scheduler for WiFi NIC - THAT WORKED.
Back to 1'st ND - unticked QoS ... - NO GO!, unstalled SSH - NO GO, removed Reg changes for MS patch - NO GO, UNINSTALLED WiFi CARD DRIVER, reinstalled driver - IT WORKED!

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

is made for SP1

i work in a call center which supports all PCW, currys and dixons computer (dont hate me for it)
and i found with SP2 the best command to use is

netsh winsock reset

works everytime and also works in some cases of spyware :)

If anyone has Panda Platinum Internet Security installed and then updated to SP2, this is likely the source of the connectivity problem... Panda has posted a link recommending an update from 9.01 to their latest version 9.02.00


I also recommend a custom install to opt out of the software firewall and webfiltering features -- Panda is enough of a PIG without these features enabled. Get yourself a d-link or linksys router with built-in hardware firewall and stop googling 4 porn! :P

I bought a new computer with the WinXP SP2 HOME and built in Intel Pro/100 VE nic on it.

Everything was working, then I put a secondary PCI video card in it to run dual montors. Network stopped working. hub has link lights. running dell boot up diagnostics show the nic works. running Intel diagnostics show that loopback tests fail. fussed with it alot... put in a second NIC, a linksys. Network works on the second nic. can't get it work on the first nic. remove video card. first nic still doesn't work. installed a different dvd rom and HD (I was gonna install Win2k on the second HD)... .but by accident I booted up to WinXP. Both NICS worked! Both NICS were getting IPs!

Put video card in PCI slot 1... First nic (built in nic ) stopps working. Put in yet another HD to format.... but somehow the format hangs... I remove the HD. XP reboots. BOTH NICS work! One last try cause I'm stubborn.. put video card in PCI slot 2. Reboot.. First NIC doesnn't work. I'm screwed.

spend 3 more hours on it... rebuild winsock. netsch to clear tcp/ip watever.. turn stupid built in NIC on and off..... .. whatever... move the second NIC through all PCI slots... install hotfix... enable.. disable..

I did everything I could find on the net to fix the problem. The only thing I can't do is to move remove the built in NIC.

I'm out of options.. about to do a system restore to original installation. :( :( :(

YEP its the MAC address. Also known as the Physical Address.

i have a tower connected to my 3com switch. It works fine. If i connect it to the cable modem it works fine also.

The problem was in my laptop. when the laptop is connected to the 3com switch, NO LOVE. Then to the modem.. still NO LOVE.

someone mentioned turning off the modem for 10-15min so a new address will be given to the netcard. they also mentioned the MAC address.

Went to my tower. Which is my system that connects fine. Then go to Start>Run> type:cmd > then at the prompt: ipconfig /all.

I took the Physical Address: 00-11-5B-2C-BB-0A
wrote it down..

Then went to my Laptop to input the numbers.

Network connections> Rightclick> Properties> click 'configure' button (next to netcard name)

Click Advanced tab.

select 'Network Address' input number with no dashes '00115B2CBB0A'. press OK

And there you have it.
I have a Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC.

I guess turning off the modem for 10-15 works also to get a new MAC/Physical Address, but i havent tried it.

I did try everything else, patch, 'netsh winsock reset' , 'netsh winsock reset catalog', regedit, etc.. no love with those attempts..

Must be something with Realtek..

Hope that helps!!! :P
