Limited connectivity - 2

Following on from an earlier post whereby my son, living in Romania,
indicated that he was seeing limited on no connectivity on his internet
connection; even though we were talking (on Skype), has come back with print
screen dump of his network folder.

This shows two major elements with information as follows:-

Broadband

Name: RDS
Type: Broadband
Status; Connected, Firewalled
Device Name: WAN Miniport (PPPOE)

LAN or High-Speed Internet

Name: 1394 Connection 3
Type: LAN or High-Speed Internet
Status; Connected, Firewalled
Device Name: 1394 Net Adapter #3

Name: Local Area Connection
Type: LAN or High-Speed Internet
Status; Limited or no connectivity, Firewalled
Device Name: Realtek RTL8169/8110 Gamily Gigabit Ethernet NIC

RDS is the name of the Romanian ISP provider.

Physically the network connection (modem) is wall mounted in his flat and
Ethernet cable connected to PC (onboard Realtek NIC). I’ve advised him to
disable 1394 fire-wire connection.

With this updated information would appreciate if someone can explain why
getting “limited or no connectivity†showing and how this can become
“connectedâ€

The computer is connected to the Internet through the RDS Broadband
connection. That connection gets an IP address from RDS.

The Local Area Connection doesn't get an IP address, and it doesn't
need one. But that causes the extraneous "limited connectivity"
message. To eliminate the message:

1. Right-click the Local Area Connection.
2. Click Properties.
3. Un-check the box "Notify me when this connection has limited or no
connectivity".
