Having problems with your MSI Wind UmNotebook ?

Wifi saying limited or no connectivity

\015 I have done the update on off windows from the other post.i basically rebooted the computer with the xp service 2 cd and everything was wiped clean. so i installed the wireless driver again but it just keeps saying aquiring network address and than limited or no connectivity.i am using a safecom swbarr 5400 router. it all worked fine before i rebooted it and my other laptop works fine.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012I tried this solution\015\012First check to see if there is any wireless secuirty on your router and if so, set the secuity to NONE and while your at it, change the channel on the router (IF you can... dont worry if you cant as not all routers are easy to change chanel) plus if there is a friewall or anti-virus enabled (EITHER on your computer OR on the router) then disable it.IF THAT DOES NOT HELP.......Second...From you CONTROL PANEL click on \342\200\234Network Connections\342\200\235 then click your connection.Next RIGHT CLICK on the connection it shows you and a pop-up window will appear. Choose PROPERTIES.That will open a "Local Area Connection properties" window. You will find a box showing different icons look for the one which says Internet protocol (TCP/IP). When you have found it highlight this and click on the property button below. A new window "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" will appear from this window and you have to make sure that the following options are selected:1."Obtain an IP address Automatically"2. "Obtain DNS server address Automatically"If they are NOT selected then select them and then click OK.It will now take you back to the previous window again click apply, OK and close.Reboot your computer and you should be good to connect.\015\012 \015\012And this solution\015\012 \015\012Please follow these steps Click Start >Run >regedit {enter}Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\Winsock and delete it; just below that, see HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\Winsock2 and delete itExit Regedit and reboot.To Reinstall TCP/IP To do this you need a copy of nettcpip.inf. There is one on the Windows XP CD and there may be one on your hard drive at C:\\WINDOWS\\inf\\nettcpip.inf. Note: To see the inf folder, open My Computer and go to the menu item Tools > Folder Options... > View > and choose Show hidden files and folders.Right click "My Network Places" select Properties.Right click the connection(s) and select Properties.Click Install >Protocol >add >have disk.Browse to the location of nettcpip.inf .Select nettcpip.inf then click Open then OK then Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then OK then CloseReboot\015\012 \015\012But none of them worked.\015

Answers :

Sounds like you have a bad piece of hardware. Can u surf with a hardwire to router? I would consider purchasing a wireless usb adapter and installing it to test with. The winsock repair that you performed would only fix a browser related issue. I doubt that you have mac address filtering enabled on your router, but if you do then that would explain why you cant connect. Then again you would be able to connect to other networks, just not yours. Hope this helps...tennis123
