When you use a wireless connection for network connectivity on a Windows Vista-based computer, you may receive the following message for a device in the Connect to a network dialog box:

Connected with limited access

This problem occurs if a device on the Windows Vista-based computer uses a network bridge to access the network.

You may also receive the following error message:

Connection unsuccessful

- If you are connecting to a wireless hotspot, you might need to open a web browser to finish connecting.

You receive these messages even though the device has good network connectivity using the wireless network bridge.
