Ok a few weeks ago i bridged my wireless connection with my xbox so i could go online with my xbox without having to buy one of those £60 adapters, now this all works fine but ive noticed my connection status on my PC has changed from "Connected" to "Connected with limited access". What does this mean, any what effects will it have on my internet......recently ive noticed more timeout errors and disconnects, why tho?

Thanks for anyone who posts.

That normally means you're not connected.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Thats what i thought but i am connected. I can use the internet and use xbox live perfectly fine. The only difference is the status changing from 'connected' to the 'limited access' part and sometimes the internet runs a little slow. Someone suggested that it was because i have 2 devices on the same IP address so they are not valid, could that be it?

If you told us something about all the devices and how they're connected, we could maybe make a better guess.

ok, well i have a wireless adfapter plugged into my USB port, it goes to my netgear router and gives me internet access. I also have my xbox connected via crossover cable to the network port in the back of my pc. I then bridged the wireless internet connection with the crossover network connection so its on a network bridge. It now says connected with limited access. Is this because i have 2 devices running from the same IP addess so its not valid?!?

I suspect it's because the wired connection doesn't see a DHCP server. In the case of the bridge configuration, it's probably not significant, and you can disable that warning in the connection properties if it bothers you.

Hey Yonic7
I wanted to ask if you could help. My internet stopped working for no reason, it just says : limited access. I tried the command thing IPCONFIG/ALL but that doesnt bring any information either. All I get is a note that something may be wrong with the driver, but it definitely isnt router cause I am just using friends laptop and internet comes from the same network.
Let me know if you can help. Thank you.
