Hello,
I have a toshiba laptop running XP Sp2 with a dlink dwlG650 air plus. I can connect to my home network via my router OK but when i want to connect outside the house to a open access hotspot I get the 'Limited or no connectivity' message and upon doing the 'repair connection' it is unable to assign an IP address.

This is simple and quick and may help.

Check TCP/IP Properties.

Start, Connect To, Connection, Properties, Scroll Down TCP/IP and highlight, click Properties and check that Obtain DNS and IP address automatically are enabled.

Sorry, I missed the earlier point about being okay at home.

If you experience problems at cafe hotspots etc best to see if there's a knowledgeable staff member. I was surprised at the help obtained at a local McDonalds -- turned out they used a proxy server and that demanded changes in the user's system.
