    I get the limited or no connectivity message with the reason as above. I have
    good signal, setup looks good and i have been through Ezlan. My other laptop
    connects OK and the setup appears identical. Running XP pro.

    I assume that you are primarily attempting to connect to the router to
    access the Internet.

    First, connect the computer directly to the router using an Ethernet
    cable. If you can browse the Internet now, then disconnect the Ethernet
    cable, *disable* all encryption and filtering options on the router, and
    now try to connect wirelessly and browse the Internet.

    If that works, then re-enable encryption (use WPA2-PSK or WPA-PSK) on
    the router and carefully re-enter the password when you try to connect.
