Hey all,

I am trying to help my flatmate with an issue connecting to the net.

We have a Thompson 585v8 with Telecom.

He runs a Nec Versa p9110 with Visa.

Two of our computers connect fine, one through Ethernet and one wirelessly.

His Nec will connect through a Ethernet cable but only gives us Limited Connection when he attempts to connect wirelessly, so it recognises the network but wont connect to the internet.

I installed the latest Visa service pack and drivers for his Wireless card but neither worked.

Does anyone have any ideas?

He can connect wirelessly to other networks - is it our modem?

Check to make sure that his network card doesnt have a static IP assigned to it. If it is than change that to DHCP option so it gets its IP from the modem.

I have had a look at it definitely is DCHP enabled.

Any other suggestions?

Ensure mac or IP filtering is disabled/allowing the laptop in.

in my experience, it can be a driver issue, maybe backdate it or it could be the service pack.

the thing is it might happen to some and not to others... (diff products).

Double check that the wireless security credentials are correct...
