Network / Sharing :: Acer Aspire / Win 8.1 - Limited Connection / Default Gateway Not Available
Sep 15, 2014
I have an Acer Aspire laptop with Windows 8.1. My main modem is located downstairs in my house, with a laptop connected to it (it works fine, never any issues). Before, I had a router wired upstairs to connect my laptop to. Here's the problem - it doesn't matter if I am using a wireless or a wired connection, I get a limited connection. I will have Windows troubleshoot the problem, and it always says that the problem was that the Default Gateway is not Available, and it will say that it is fixed. However, this randomly happens over and over anywhere from 2 minutes to 20 minutes after I just "fixed" it.
I have just recently tried running a wire across my house to plug directly into the modem. This worked for a while, but the same thing started happening. Keep in mind, there is also a laptop wired directly to the modem downstairs in my house. I believe (but I haven't checked this in a while) that if I connect to the WiFi from my modem downstairs, it works fine.
I Just Upgrade My Laptop Windows From 7 To 8.1 But I Have Lots Of Limited Wi-Fi connection And I Just downloaded The drivers For Win 8 From Hp Website But Still Have It And The Only annoying Fix Is When I Do The troubleshooting Think Its Says default gateway Not available Or something Like That . My Laptop Is Hp G7 Wireless Driver is Broadcom 4313GN 802.11 B .
I've been having troubles with my internet connection for about 3 weeks. It all started like the 4th day after they installed the service. First couple of times it would only happens once or twice a day, but lately is been happening about 10 to 20 times a day. Pretty annoying since I am an online gamer and I have invested some money on games where I can get perma-banned.
I can be either talking on skype, or in the middle of a match and internet will disconnect and show No internet access Limited Connectivity. Every time I use troubleshoot problems, I always get the same result "default gateway not available" and if I do what windows tells me to reset the modem nothing happens, my computer reconnects with the limited connectivity sign.
And in worst cases, it happens over, and over, and over again so I have to unplug the modem and then reboot my computer for it to work, but the last couple of times that I've done that, computer doesn't connect to the internet and the troubleshooter says the Wi-fi is disabled, and asks if I want to fix it as administrator.
At first I thought it was the company's fault until I noticed that sometimes when my computer has no internet connection, I can still use my the internet on my ipod. That doesn't happen always, though.

I JUST bought my laptop three weeks ago. Two weeks ago, I started having issues where I would constantly lose my Internet connection (wifi). This is not happening with any other devices in my home, including my IPad and son's laptop. Now it's not recognizing Internet connections at all. Acer wants to charge me, says it a software issue, not hardware. It's an Acer Aspire V5-571P.
I've recently begun encountering connectivity problems. Seemingly randomly, the wifi connection becomes limited and webpages/games time out. Whenever I repair the connection it is always at the "reset wi-fi adapter" step that it seems to resolve the issue.
Steps I've taken thus far are:
Uncheck the box under my network adapters settings that said "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"show hidden devices under the network adapter device manager and try to uninstall all but my ethernet and wifi connections. aside from these two connections I wanted to keep, there were two bluetooth devices that I don't use/need, two adapters hidden with odd names, and quite a few WAN miniports. I tried uninstalling all of these...some uninstalled, others uninstalled but came back with a restart, and some wouldn't uninstall at all.
Anyway, below is my ipconfig:
Code: Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200](c) 2012 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. C:UsersLu>ipconfig/allWindows IP Configuration Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : Toy Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . : Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No Ethernet adapter Bluetooth Network Connection: Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
I recently purchased a new computer and while trying to acess the internet I find that I can have a stable connection for no longer than 20 seconds. After that the network becomes unavailable and when I try to repair it I continue to get the error default gateway is unavailable.
After update to Windows 8.1 my internet connect keeps disconnecting. Hard land wire (Ethernet) and wireless connections does this. I've already switch modems/routers. Tech came out everything outside looks good. Getting message Default Gateway Not Available.
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600] (c) 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
About every 10 minutos this occurs and I lose internet connection. When I troubleshoot it displays default gateway not available and it is fixed. Then about 10-15 minutes later it loses connection again. I tried ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew and nothing. I also uninstalled drivers and installed new ones and nothing?
I just got a new laptop (Samsung Ativ 7) and it worked great for a week on the router I have at home. I just moved into university housing and the wifi seemed to work for about a day, but since then (about 3 days now) it continuously disconnects from the internet. Like every 30 seconds... It's bad. If I'm lucky I'll get a few minutes, though strangely the problem seems to be getting worse each day and my time online seems to be getting shorter each day.
When I run the troubleshooter, it says the default gateway is not available and "fixes" the problem, which lasts for a few seconds/minutes before it reverts. Every now and then the problem will be "Wi-Fi doesn't have a valid IP configuration." That problem gets "fixed" and the internet never works, instead I have to trouble shoot again to see the gateway one, then I get a little bit of wifi. Lately I have to run troubleshooter multiple times before I get any results.
I think I'm having DNS issues, but what the cause or the solution is, I do not know... The lease is always listed for about 5 minutes (though I don't always make it that far) and when I try to connect the college VPN service, it says "Limited Access - DNS Failure."
My IPConfig info is below.

I have Acer v5 touch which I only just purchase A few weeks ago. For some reason every 30 minutes the internet keeps dropping out, When the system Carn't connect I can connect to the internet with my tablet just fine so I dont know if its the router?
My family has reported that there having issues aswill but it seems to be at diffrent times. So I carn't tell if its the computer or network dropping out, I have read that acer has had previous wifi issues a few months ago. This leaves me comfused and how to fix the problem. Its A brand new machine so if it is the laptop why am I already facing issues with it??
I have an Acer Aspire E1-572 laptop. Went to connect it to my router via an Ethernet cable but failed to have connection,It works okay on wifi but not on the Ethernet the square box don't show next to the clock.I have looked in device manager for any yellow exlamation marks and none to be seen.
For the last week or so, I've been having issues with my ASUS notebook disconnecting from my wireless network or having a limited connection. This would happen maybe twice a day, but eventually I went online and I found that I had an outdated driver for my Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230, and as soon as I downloaded the latest driver, my notebook would disconnect every 5 minutes or so. Running the troubleshooter just keeps returning the same thing; Default gateway not available. It also does this annoying thing where it'll disconnect and reconnect over and over again, so quickly that the network sharing center can't even register it's happening. I've tried resetting the WINSOCK, IPv4 TCP/IP, and IPv6 TCP/IP stacks, I've tried a clean boot to see if it was a startup program affecting my connections, and I've changed my power settings so they don't turn off my adapter. I even tired booting my computer in safe mode, which didn't work.

I'm trying to set up my router to the new internet connection and get the wifi going but for the life of me I cant get it set up. The internet connection itself is fine, from modem to pc. Once I have the modem in the mix,it gets no/limited connectivity and cannot reach the setups. I have tried the classic 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.1.1 and about 5 other variations, along with 'http://router'. My router is a Belkin N300 Wireless N Router. If I use a command prompt and do 'ipconfig', there is no ip address beside 'gateway default' once the router is connected. I have reset my router to factory settings. I've tried using a static ip address for my computer [though not sure if i did it correctly]. My DHCP is enabled.
I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and this error started happening. As soon as it did, I jumped into the Googlemobile to try to figure it out. Here is a list of what I've tried:
Uninstalled/reinstalled drivers via Device ManagerUpdated driversChanged networking drivers to and from defaultChanged 'Speed & Duplex' to and from 100 Mbps Full DuplexSwapped to a wireless connectionUpgraded router firmwarePower cyclingDeleted and reset network connectionsChanged antivirus (Using, and have been using, Webroot)
I had a previous thread with my Windows 8.1 OS (8.1 - Wireless Adapter shuts off). I thought it was solved, but after a couple of days, it happened again.
I reformated my System Partition, installed a clean Windows 8 Pro version (Because i didn't had the problem before i upgraded to Win 8.1) and now i have the same issues.
Installed the latest drivers from Intel (Didn't fix it) Installed the drivers that came with my laptop for windows 8 (Didn't fix it) Disabled the Power Management setting to turn of the adapter Changed my DNS (Because i was also getting the 'Default Getaway' problem (Didn't fix it) Did the DISM thing, nothing
I'm starting to think that this is a problem on the Hardware Level? I could try to go back to Windows 7, but i'm afraid i'll have the same problem...
I recently purchased a new Asus laptop and have been having problems with my home network. I get disconnected probably once every 15 minutes and when the trouble shooter was run I get "default gateway unavaliable"
I believe this is due to my router. I have Comcast and it seems whenever I am connected to mine (or my girlfriends same model and make) I get disconnected but at my parent's house I dont have any problems.
I talked to the ASUS people and was given a driver that didnt work (as far as I know I installed it correctly) and was also told to refresh my computer to factory settings incase it was something I installed. Neither worked.
Here is my IPconfig date (I have unchecked the 'allow computer to turn off to conserve power' option)
I see that the constant "default gateway is not available" error is a common one for Windows 8. My connection drops every five minutes or less. It appears to get much worse when my brother is online on his computer on the same network. I've searched for solutions before, but none have worked so far. I've manually set the IP, I've turned off the power management option on the network, I've restarted my computer, I've made sure that my driver is updated,
My connection just went 'limited connection' but I can browse and download on the web with ease. Also, my metro apps like mail, and news, facebook does not update, and also it's live tiles. Windows store app says it can't connect to the internet.
I'm using an Nvidia nForce ethernet built in an Asrock n68c-s ucc motherboard.I tried to find updates for this nvidia nforce but managed to get only for windows 7. so installed it, and nothing happens.
I have win 8 in my lappy... I was able to run internet but now it is showing that "proxy server unable to connect ".. then I checked my ip settings the default gateway was gone.now every time I wanted to save it, it was erased from there...
I'm having trouble keeping my lenovo laptop (running windows 8) connected to the internet. I have been able to connect successfully to multiple wireless networks and access the internet until I tried to connect to the new network.
Initially everything is OK - I can connect to the network and access the internet. However after a short period of time (anywhere from a few seconds to 20 minutes) the network connection will change to limited, without internet access. If I simply disconnect and reconnect to the network the internet will immediately be working again (at least for a few seconds/minutes).
Alternatively, if I run the troubleshooter, I always get the message that the default gateway is not available, which has been fixed by resetting the wi-fi adapter.
Recently, something odd has been happening. On initial start up of my PC, the network fails. It will show the yellow exclamation point and show as limited. When this happens, I cant even ping my directly connected router. It shows as PING: Transmit failed. General Failure.
So far since this started happening, restarting works. Is there any way to figure out what the cause is? My drivers are up to date and it may have started when I updated to 8.1 but im not 100 percent sure. Not sure if there are any logs I can look at to see what isnt happening correctly when this occurs.
i have a lenovo idea pad that will connect to wifi but says limited connection. I can use the iternet via ethernet cable with no issues. My ISP is comcast and I have one of their modems that came with wifi im guessing it doubles as a router seeing i direct connect to it with my laptop. however my wifi works for my xbox one, a nexus 7 tablet a xbox 360 ,a printer and two smartphones with no issues what so ever. They are not all on at once so max connections shouldnt be a issue. I've spent hours on the phone with comcast and they insist its the laptop and not the wifi, how to go about fixing the issue. I've checked the drivers and their up to date then uninstalled and reinstalled still no luck. i use firefox for browsing and AVG for antivirus.
My computer keeps listing the internet connection as "limited". It does this randomly, I don't know when it will happen next. Restarting router/computer fixes it sometimes, but not all the time. Sometimes it takes about 4 restarts of the router until I get a proper connection. Trouble shooting merely describes the problem as having no connection and tells me to reconnect the router. This takes around 5 minutes each time and I'm getting tired of doing this, as it interrupts skype calls, games and conversations.
I just bought a dell xt2 on ebay it came with windows 8 pro. My problem is that it goes into limited connection every ten minutes, even when i am next to the router. The error I get when i trouble shoot is the Default gateway is not available.
I'm having problems with my sony vaio connecting to the internet. For one thing it doesn't pick up wireless signal as far away as the other laptops in the house. The main problem though, is that often the bars will be lit up as if it is connected but there will be a little yellow warning triangle saying limited.
When it happens, I try disconnecting/reconnecting and turning the router on and off but most of the time I just have to wait until it comes back. Once it is connected it works fine. It is fairly a fairly common occurrence and happens every day.
We have an Eircom router and the wireless card (according to the outside of the box) is: Wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11bgn).
I've been having a problem since I updated to Windows 8.1My internet wi-fi connection is unusually low and is not working after only minutes of browsing the internet. The problem is always fixed after I run troubleshoot problems and is saying that the default Gateway is unavailable. My netword card might be the source of the problem even tough I updated the drivers. I'm not sure which one I have because drivers from Ralink and Qualcomm seem to be working both.
