I was wondering wheather anyone can help. I have a Netgrear router which is connected to my Vista desktop, Vista laptop, and XP laptop. Both laptops connected wirelessly.
All was working fine before I upgraded from Kaspersky 2009 to 2011. Since the upgrade my Vista laptop has suffered from "Limited or no connectivity" meaning I cannot get onto the internet and plugging it in directly does not work either.
I've tried turning off the firewall and the Kaspersky filter and that has not worked.
I've used command prompt to check whether it is connected and the ping comes back as 100% loss which means that it is not connected.
However, I am able to connect to other wireless networks which is strange and my other XP laptop which had the same problems has cured itself.
I can provide screen shots if needed. Would be grateful if anyone can help.
suggestions on the limited or no connectivity: try clearing the preferred network list of wifi that you have previously connected to hopefully you know your wireless key when you reconnect to the network in your laptop..this has happened a few times with netgear and vista...double check the antivirus console to ensure that network is added as trusted ...try connecting to a free public hotspot to ensure the wifi card in laptop is fine though seems less preferred in your scenario...if a public wifi can't help u either check for a wifi card driver upgrade or u might wanna check with ur laptop vendor for help...possibilites of using a static ip in your laptop especially when u connect 2 office networks with their credentials also evokes this message in vista...though some/most of these might seem overkill i believe they might help solve the issue...
