Why do I have no connectivity using my Netgear wireless stick?

Hi,

I have an old IBM Thinkpad which uses a Netgear wireless stick. It was working fine yesterday but today I cannot for the life of me figure it out. I am getting “Limited or No Connectivity” in Windows XP when checking network status.

So far I have tried:

  • Resetting modem/router
  • The repair connection button (it just tells me it cannot renew IP) in which case I had done a netsh reset for winsock and the catalog which just made the ‘repair’ button say  ”the following action could not be completed: renewing your IP address”

I have already looked at many forums and am stumped. Any feedback would be awesome!
