hi, connect your erthenet cable into your laptop,

click on the e for internet explorer, in the web bar address(were you normally put click here) type in the ip address, mine was 192.168.1.254 i think your should be the same, and press go, it should then bring up your routers set up page, i think then you either select install or configure, and it should then be ready for you to go wireless, hopefully ive give you all the right information, its a monthsince i worked it out so memory a bit rusty now

regards

Have you actually "Connected" to the wireless network? In other words, have you run the wireless adapter's software, scanned for "Available Wireless Networks", found and highlighted the one that matches your router's SSID (network name) and selected the option to "Connect" to it? Once "connected", the little icon will get its "halo" to indicate it is connected to that network and it should then get its correct IP address by DHCP from the router.

At the moment, the "Limited or No Connectivity" indication is because the wireless adapter hasn't got its IP address from the router. Windows has allocated a 169.254.x.x address, because the adapter has been unable to access the router to get the correct address, and this won't let you get online.
