    I have a PC and a laptop and the wifi router is connected to the pc in my sisters room. It says limited access on both the laptop and pc. I have tried unplugging the roter for 30 second like troubleshooting has suggested I do. Sorry about my spelling I'm using my moms iPhone and it's hard to type! (it doesn't work on her iPhone either im using 3G or something)

    The quickest thing to try is a direct connect to your ISP's modem. After plugging the ethernet in to the modem you may have to reboot the modem for it to recognize the new mac address of the PC.

    Try doing a full reset on the router - there is usually a small pinhole somewhere on the router through which you need to poke a pin for the reset.
