connected but not connected

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?R2xlbm4=?=, Dec 3, 2005.

  1. I have a home wireless system (Dell Dimension desktop, lynksys wireless-G
    router, Dell Inspiron 600 notebook), that worked just fine. Then I download
    XP service pack 2, and it works no longer. I either get a message that says
    "limited or no connectivity," (meaning no connectivity), or a message that at
    the top right-hand corner says I'm not connected, but in the text it says I'm
    connected. (really bizarre)

    I do have a WEP key. I've tried going through network connections, but
    nothing seems to help. I'm not a techie, so any advice, please keep as
    simple as possible. Alternatively, is there a way to uninstall the service
    pack?

    SP2 can be uninstalled. Follow this link...

    Also are you sure that Windows firewall is not causing some problems? I
    would also try disabling your AV program just to be sure it is not blocking
    your connection. You can always restart the AV after you check.
