Check that your wireless router is set up with DHCP enabled, and that you laptops aquire an IP address automatically. Re-boot all and see if that works.

RE: limtedor no connectectivty

It sounds to me as if you have the wireless encryption key wrong. Check what type of encryption (WEP or WPA) the router is using, and set the laptop to be the same. If it is WPA, also check whether you are using TKIP or AES coding.

There may be an old profile stored in the PC which is confusing it. Using the Wireless manager, delete any old profiles in the wifi configuration, and set it up from scratch.
