This connection has limited or no connectivity

I have DI-624 router and DCM-202 modem

Up to a few days ago my internet was working fine

Now when i turn on my computer, the internet works for 10-20 minutes and then just stops giving me "this connection has limited or no connectivity..." message.

It also says "This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer" when i click details.

Pressing "repair" or "ipconfig /renew" does not work

The only way I am able to make the internet work again is if I reset my powerstrip which in turn resets my computer, modem and router. Then it works fine again for a few minutes, but not for very long

Any help will be appreciated

Check for other wireless AP's

In reply to: This connection has limited or no connectivity

I have seen this happen when your neighbors install a rogue Access point and it clashes with your AP.
Try changing the channel of your wireless.

DO A SITE SURVEY this will give you a good idea of how powerful your wireless signal is. also try to take notes as to where you loose connectivity in your house. Do you remain connected if you are seated closer to your access point?

check your Access Point for any breakages or loose antenna
Hope these pointers help.

also test if there is a DHCP conflict. if you have a wired switch as well as a wireless router handing out DHCP addresses in the same range this might happen.

if all else fails invest in a good linksys access point.
