I currently have two laptops connected to my wireless router. They’re sitting pretty much right next to each other and normally work fine. Lately though, one of them keeps getting that Limited Connectivity message and I don’t know how to fix it. It can’t be the router because the other computer continues to work just fine; it’s only happening to the first one. Any help??

  1. I have gotten that error in the past, but is usually because I am too far away from the router, or there is a channel conflict with other wireless devices. Changing the channel usually has solved it for me, until my router went belly up.
