Help! Limited or no connectivity

Hello,
 
I have a Inspiron B130 and it has worked great so far until last week.  The wireless connection all of a sudden just stop, it says that it has limited or no connectivity but I have a very strong signal strenght but nothin, I also tried connect through the ethernet port, but still got the same thing, limited or no connectivity but with a strong signal.  I have  tried restoring to a pervious date, i have tried winsockfix but nothing has worked.  Any help would be so wonderful, thank you so much

Re: Help! Limited or no connectivity

To help troubleshoot this problem, go to Start > Run and type cmd then click OK. In the command prompt window that opens, type ipconfig /all then hit the enter key. Write down the output from this command or select it and save it to a txt file, then copy this output into a reply to this message.

Re: Help! Limited or no connectivity

Try to check the network connections first click start--->control panel---->network connections---->right click on wireless network connection---->properties---->click internet protocol on the list and then click properties------> make sure its on obtain IP address automatically..
 
 
for limited or no connectivity make sure that you type the network key(WEP) correctly if your network is a secured one. if the WEP key is correct try to check and disable all your firewalls. if still this does not work try going to device manager and uninstall/reinstall the drivers for the wireless card. you could try updating the drivers of your wireless adapter.
 
 
hope this help.

Re: Help! Limited or no connectivity

I understand everything everyone is sayin but none of it works. i uninstalled on of the two adapters thinking that i still had the cd but i didnt. when i log on to the wireless internet it says that there is limited or no connectivity. I click repair but it stops when it gets to the "Renewing IP Adress".I was just on wireless internet about an hour earlier and it worked fine but when i got home that is what it started doing. Please help me i need my internet and i HATE dial up.

Re: Help! Limited or no connectivity

how do you connect, adsl or cable? if adsl have you tried unplugging the router for a minute then trying again.  As you have trouble with both wireless and ethernet I'm wondering about the router or internet side of things. I don't know anything about cable really, but there are plenty who can offer advice on that side.
