New laptop - need access to wireless..

New laptop - need access to wireless.. I got a new laptop today and when I try to access my wireless network. It only allows "limited access", which is of no use, because it doesn't allow access to the internet. What do I do?

Do you have a dhcp server running? If not, you will need to set a static ip.

Notebook Internet in Europe A bit out of left field perhaps but maybe someone here has had experience? Going to be travelling thru a number of Eastern European countries and have been told the way to connect to Internet (where there is no WiFi)is to purchase a USB phonecard for the given area. You guys know most things and maybe you have some info on the subject? Hopefully - cos it's going to be toooo late when we get there and find it's not a goer.........

Umm drcspy, I'd said "Sorry" and Rectified my mistake - BEFORE you got grumpy, lol.

"Limited connectivity" is due to the fact that no IP address is given out by DHCP server on router/wireless access point to computer. Most likely cause is that the connection is encrypted and you gave the incorrect passphrase.
