hi this is my 1st post on here, got a bit of a annoying problem the home network is as follows, 2 desktops, 2 laptops, ps3, wii, psp, and a ds. all are wireless, except ps3 which is ethernet. not all are on at same time, 3 at most. with 1 of the desktops it has suddenly become impossable to connect, all other devices work fine. i thought it could of been the adapter plugged in the desktop, but i used another adapter on the desktop, same problem happens. i have tried every solution i can think of, but the message i get is 'connected with limited access' and 'unidentified network'.

i know the router is fine as i downloaded a 5.6 gb film on the ps3 lastnite, and it was recieving around 2mb a second, which is normal for our area.

please help.

Firstly, does it work if you connect it by ethernet cable?

Have you added any new devices recently?

Is your wireless network adaptor driver up to date? Go into Device Manager to check this.

When you have done this you might have a look at this article to see if the TCP/IP needs resetting.
