Computer will sometimes boot up and connect to wireless internet by itself, but most times it will only go 1/2 nway and state i am connected with limited connectivity. I then open network and sharing and troubleshoot button and it pops up a box saying reset network adapter. This will work maybe for 5 minutes or maybe 2-4 hours. Then it boots me back to limited connectivity. Then it wont let me connect all the way again till i unplug telephone line from wall shut off modem and router, cut it all back on boot up 1/2 way again and the reset network adapter to repeat cycle.
There are times a window will come up and say that it pinged dns server and no response. Is it a modem problem? Do i not have something running in windows when it starts that should be running.
I will ever be indebted to the person who helps me.

First thing I'd say is that you probably need to change channels on the wireless router, you might have neighbors with a competing signal ... it's also good to make sure your firmware is updated on your router ...but that's not the only reason for limited connection errors.. could also be DHCP services not working properly .. but that's a little bit more advanced and would require a lot more information about your network

I had this problem. My computer was trying to connect to my neighbors wireless. I got the limited when I wasn't able to supply the appropriate password.
Try manually connecting to your wireless router, and I believe that it gives you the option to connect automatically from there on. Also make you you have not set to automatically connect to anothers Router.

Limited connection happens when you have a connection but no ip address.. so wrong password can do it .. but can also happen if the dhcp service isn't assigning an ip ... this stuff is always case by case.. my brother's IP cam would send a dhcp request and my server would send an offer.. but his cam would never accept.. so sometimes it's just flat out hardware or firmware problems.

If you are using MS Windows, go into Control Panel.
Click on the Network and Internet Connections tab. Then click on

Wireless Network Set Up Wizard, and follow the path/directions.
There is a box in there that you will have to possibly disable the automatically "choose /search
for Wi- Fi network setting.
Make sure you set up a password. Also you mentioned "Telephone Line".
Do you have a dial up connection still, or did you mean a LAN plug that looks like a
large version of a telephone plug.

Anyway, your wireless connection/transmitter itself is probably the bump in the road.
It may help to X-Out of everything and re-install the disk that came with your Wireless system.

Do not rule out calling their Help Line and have them walk you through it.
You may have to allow them remote access to your PC temporarily.
The Password Issue is Crucial.

I've been having this issue lately too.. It's fixed every time if I just turn off the router for 10 seconds and turn it back on..
It stops working about every 3 days now mostly around noon..

I think Time Warner gave me a wonky router..

My computer doesn't have a good wireless card so that doesn't help matters any..

When it works it works very fast with no errors.. I know one time in boone with another company I had to have an automatic system take control of my computer and rewired some systems a few steps down the line, from my router and that fixed it.

I'm not well versed in computer technology anymore. Kind of stopped paying attention around when wireless came out.

Wondering if I should try to re-set up the network.

In my experience ISP provided devices are junk. Most of them give their customers a "gateway" device that is a single device that acts as a modem and a router combined. These devices are usually not that great and can have issues connecting to certian devices not to mention it can be near impossible to make any adjustments to some of them due to the ISP refusing to provide log in info to access the configurations.

It is much better to purchase your own router. It doesnt even have to be an expensive high-end router, just a name brand with good reviews. Personally i like Linksys by Cisco, but netgear and D-link are great also.

Once you purchase your own router you can either set your gateway device in to "Bridge Mode", or request a simple modem from your ISP.

Purchasing your own router will allow you to make easy adjustments, and will generally have a stronger, more stable connection.

Call Time Warner and raise some Cain! That's what I did and they brought out a WAY better wireless modem/router and I've had no more problems since. They will try to get away with sticking you with a cheap piece of junk as long as you will let them get away with it. Also make them check the signal amplifiers that are up in the pole lines. Last year our whole neighborhood was having problems with signal going in and out and it turned out to be a defective in line amplifier- but it took the whole neighborhood raising hell before they would come out and fix it.
