I have my Mac set up with ethernet and my laptop with wireless, a few times I have noticed I have lost connection and when I look at network connection it says 'limited connection'?
I don't have the SSID showing in the router settings, the only box clicked is wireless, if the internet has gone down, then why does my Mac still have internet connection?
I got back into my router and renamed the connection and changed the password in set up, I did this using the Mac, and now I have got internet back on my laptop
Any theories or explanations would be gratefully appreciated.

Re: Limited Connection
I thought someone else was hacking into my internet supply, now I can switch to Ethernet I can be more secure, I don't like using wireless. Thanks!

Re: Limited Connection
In case you should ever fear that someone is accessing your Internet connection again, simply log into the router and find the page that lists the connected devices.
You should be able to determine what each one list is. If you find something which you cannot account for, then change the SSID and WiFi password. That should delay them from accessing your router again. Also DO change the router's password too. The default for all of Sky's routers is the same and is easily found on the Internet.
