For about a week now, my computer has had intermittent internet access. It'll work anywhere from about 10 seconds to 45 minutes or so before cutting out. When it disconnects, it usually corrects itself within the next minute or so, or disconnecting/reconnecting to the network, running the troubleshooter, or turning on/off wifi will correct the issue slightly quicker.
When running the troubleshooter, I've seen about every error it has. Usually "Default gateway is unavailable." Sometimes an IP error, sometimes "network cable is unplugged," sometimes it'll tell me I have a router or modem error, or to contact my ISP. It varies. I've seen up to 3 errors at once, and then the next time the Troubleshooter runs it'll give me another entirely. The network itself is fine. A number of other devices function consistently throughout the day as my PC has issues. This PC worked on this current network for about 3 weeks prior to failing.
Normally, it thinks it's connected. Sometimes it shows the yellow symbol in the bar and says no internet access. Usually depends on how long it cuts out for.

Windows 8.1, 64 bit
Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
Security on the wireless network is WPA2-Personal with AES encryption
I've checked for viruses (none), refreshed the PC (not a full restore, but the one that does not remove files, just programs and settings), done a couple things in command prompt, and updated the driver.
I have a PC and a tablet, both of which have Windows 8.1 installed, and are regularly updated. I prefer using the wireless connection on my PC, although I do have an active wired connection. Is there a setting somewhere that disables the wired connection automatically when the wireless is active, and also switches back to wired if the wireless disconnects? I have looked into Group Policy Editor at the wireless and wired LAN settings under Network Connections, but don't see any setting to do this automatically.
I bought a new laptop (Vaio Pro) a couple weeks ago, and it's been bluescreening repeatedly ever since (about 20 times in two weeks). I'd send it back to the manufacturer, but I'm currently being interviewed for several jobs, each of which requires an interview presentation, so I absolutely definitely need access to it at the moment, and that's unlikely to change in the next few weeks sadly.
I've attached the Diagnostic Tool output.
The error messages appear unrelated, which I would guess is symptomatic of a fairly low level problem.? The most common ones are "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA", but there are others (see dump files).
There's no obvious pattern to when the crashes occur, except maybe a very slight increased probability when playing a game (although it still happens when I'm working as well) .
New HP Pavilion 14 Touch w/ Windows 8.1. (purchased directly from HP) Intel Core i5 1.7GHz/2.4GHz, 64-bit Broadcom 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi adapter Wireless Router: Arris TG862G Router.
My laptop was able to connect to my home router in the initial setup of the computer, but within about 1-2 hours I was disconnected entirely. A day passed and I was able to reconnect, but at noticeably slower internet speed. This lasted for about a day until, once again, it disconnected entirely this evening. Any attempt to reconnect is met with, "Can't connect to network".
I am using Windows 8 Professional. I am using a Dell XPS 1510 and am using a PCI Express Realtek PCIe GBE Family Expresscard.
I have already downloaded the latest driver from Realtek from 09/26/12. I have ran Windows Updates. No matter what the Realtek PCIe GBE Family Local Connection loses internet connection.
This card worked fine for months in Windows 7 Pro. The card works fine in Windows 8 Safe Mode. However, when logged into Windows 8 in normal mode, the card will allow and have internet connection for 1 min 12 secs to 1 min 32 secs, at which point the internet connection drops. The wifi and internal NIC (10/100) connection work fine. I've changed the NIC binding order. I've disabled the internal NIC, and Bluetooth (just in case) in the BIOS. I've tried uninstalling the WiFi to force using the Realtek PCIe GBE Family card.
I have ran procmon in order to try to figure out what if any application runs within the 1 min 32 sec timeframe that may interrupt the Realtek PCIe GBE Family card and have uninstalled any suspected applications. I've tried disabling services one at a time to see if it makes a difference.
I have tried DHCP and Static IP addresses.
The problem seems to be something within Windows 8. Something with Windows 8 disables the Realtek PCIe GBE Family internet connectivity. I've tried everything to keep the connection alive, internet works fine, I get perfect gigabit level speeds up until the 1 min 12 secs to 1 min 32 secs then all I get is no network connectivity.
The Windows 8 Troubleshooter is useless. Even though it is setup with static IP it says it can't find the default gateway. The issue is not with the router, somehow not being compatible with Windows 8 or something else. The card worked fine with the same router in Windows 7 and the internal NIC card works with the router in Windows 8 so its not that the router has problems with Windows 8.
I've also already disabled the "Allow the computer to turn off this device" option in the cards Power Management tab (first thing I tried). I've set the Power Management options on the laptop to be set to Maximum Performance.
Everything else with the laptop in Windows 8 seems fine, only this PCI express card that enables gigabit connection is failing. Don't want to use the slower WiFi or 10/100 connection those are too slow for what I need.
I purchased a new Windows 8, Inspiron 15 7000 series - 7537 last December. I had been using a router at a hotel for the time, and it worked correctly. When I arrived home, I had a Belkin router, and i experienced network issues in that i could not connect to the wifi. I could connect with Ethernet cable. The problem was fixed through customer support eventually, but I now have a new Comcast router, and i'm experiencing what appears to be the same or a similar issue. I can access the internet fine by wire. With wifi, it says i have access to the internet over the internet icon in the bottom right, but i cannot access webpages. I can use skype, and communicate through it.
Here is the result from the ipconfig /all :

I really need the wifi on this router working for this laptop. Let me note that it works on other laptops, so it should be an issue with hardware or settings on this laptop.
I am using windows 8 convertible acer...my laptop shows that i m connected to the internet...the internet only works in Internet Explorer and Google Search app...the desktop versio of internet explorer shows the error "This Page Cannot Be Displayed" google chrome does not work neither does my itunes app...
Last night my wife's laptop couldn't connect to the internet. Error message was DNS servers not responding. I unplug power cables and Ethernet cables from cable modem and router (WRT54GL DD-WRT). That didn't seem to work. Today, she was able to get on certain text heavy websites. The WiFi icon said that she had internet access, but still very limited access and slow. I try DNS Release from router's setup page and DNS Renew. I also tried to release and renew through command prompt, but nothing has worked. I can get full access if I bypass the router and connect to my Desktop. Is my router dieing?
Here is my Desktop's ipconfig /all when connected to the router:

I have problem wit limited wireless connectivity on my laptop (Samsung) but also on my iPhone 4 and my wife`s LG optimus 5 duo all at the same time. I changed yesterday my router speedport which performed wireless connectivity problems, with a same one- and the problem is actually the same.For every 30 minutes I have limited access on my laptop, iPhone 4 and LG 5. If i restart the router it is OK for a while, and then again the same story. Someone told me to switch off wireless option on both phones, which made connectivity normal on my Samsung laptop.
I repeated, I changed two routers and the problem persists.
I recently Installed Windows 8 on my system, After finding my net speeds really slow i tried re-installing my wired adapter with latest drivers but the problem is still there. When i check my Wired Network connection status it says IPV6 Connectivity : No Internet Access.but IPV4 connectivity:internet access.
Now that I've upgraded to Win 8.1 my computer looses network connectivity several times a day. I can't even ping other devices on my local network. Rebooting the computer makes the problem go away (for a while). Its this computer running 8.1, none of the other computers on the network (running Win 7 or android) have the problem at the time this computer can't connect.
This is not good! If there's a way to refresh the network connection (some control panel function) that would be a not-very-good work around. Other than that it may be time to go back to Win 7.
I have a lenovo thinkpad edge E520 running on Windows 8. I have used this computer to connect to internet before but has all the sudden stopped working. I have tried connecting using a ethernet cable and also wifi but it continues to say limited access. I have tried updating the drivers and have also tried restoring the laptop to a later date but neither worked. I know my internet is working because I use the internet on my boyfriends laptop and also have playstation 3 and xbox 360 hooked up to my internet.
I'm trying to connect to a public open hotspot on my desktop that requires authentication by a web browser. I'm currently getting limited connectivity and I am not prompted that extra information is required (Like I am on this windows 7 laptop)
The windows8 drivers on my usb wireless adapter are all up to date. Troubleshooting says that I have a DNS problem, that the address doesn't exist. I've it with automatic and manual 1st 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 I've also tried disabling ipv6. It's so easy to connect on any other device, first issues I've had with this wi-fi, so It's safe to say it's a issue my end.
I am having Dell Inspiron 15R 5521 Laptop, which was bought in September'2013. Since than I am facing problems of my wifi networks which has really got worsened in last few days. The main problem is received and failed connectivity while wifi is connected. It also first connects but than starts showing things like connecting, limited, connected and suddenly the bar shows the network is lost.
After receiving a new laptop several months ago I began experiencing wi-fi disconnection issues at times the indicator on the system tray indicates limited connectivity, that's when I know that I am about to lose the connection I use windows 8.1 so when clicking on the wi-fi signal strength indicator in the system tray the network status dialogue slide's in from the right of the screen where I pre-empt the drop off by switching the wi-fi off & on again.
Computer is acer aspire e series with a Broadcom 802.11n Wireless adapter.
I recently did an upgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit to Windows 8 Pro 32 Bit. I am been experiencing an issue with my wifi connectivity only on my Windows 8 Laptop (Limited Connectivity)
Apart from that the Wifi works perfectly with my Windows 7, and other mobile platforms etc. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and the problem still persist. I've got a Acer Travelmate 5742G
This is my Wifi Troubleshooting Report:

I am currently having serious issues connecting my windows 8 desktop to wireless internet. It runs fine when hardwired in and I have tried to reinstall drivers I have run programs ensuring me they are all up to date. The computer is a HP Pavilion m8430f. The router is a Verizon router and I believe the company that makes it is actiontec m142wr.
I turned it on and I could not connect to the PUBLIC WIFI network that I usually connect to when I'm out. Then I tried connecting to other networks and they all just had a little piece of garbage icon on the wireless symbol.
A yellow alert sign.
I restarted my computer about 10 times, went into my device manager, used windows troubleshooting, uninstalled and rolled back my Intel Centro Wireless(M)2230 wireless driver. Nothing will work. I can`t really take a screenshot of my ip config /all.
Everytime I turn off my system the normal way, the next time I turn it on, it boots twice before Windows logon display and, in the worst, a BSOD shows this message: "SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED" related with "iaStorA.sys"
I've already tried checking any problem with components of my laptop with Dell software and after hours of tests it doesn't found anything wrong, so I hope this is something with software and not a compatibility problem of the new HDD with my laptop at all. The errors I've found on Event Viewer of Windows related (I suppose) with those problems above are these:
Failed Quick Windows startup with a status of 0xc0000001 errorThe computer was restarted after an error check. The bugcheck was: 0x000000d1 (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000000, 0xfffff80024e6b9df). A dump was saved in: C: WINDOWS MEMORY.DMP.

This error can be caused when the system stops responding, crashes or loses power unexpectedly.I also tried to create a mini dump file, following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions, but I don't know if it will work, since I've followed the steps before the errors show up again, but I'll attach it anyway.
I am having an issue with my Windows 8.1 Desktop (win 8.1 Pro with Media Center 64 bit) in that it is losing the IP address several times a day, which stops any browser from working. I fix this by entering "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" at the cmd prompt & restarting, but this is only temporary. For the past couple of days this has been occurring at 9am and 9pm. but for the prior week or so it was 12am or 6am. I can't work out what is causing this. This behavior began on 2/2 but no updates were done on that date. In the event log I find 4 event corresponding to the times I mention:
Error Service Control Manager The Base Filtering Engine service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 3 time(s).
Error Service Control Manager The Diagnostic Policy Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 3 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 120000 milliseconds: Restart the service.
I have done a full scan with Trend Micro but no virus or malware is detected.
I have a Asus Laptop operating with Windows 8.1. It connects to wifi but none of the desktop icons can get to the Internet. Meanwhile most window tiles in the start menu have Internet access . For example I have the application "MegaTube" and that application has access to the Internet. As well as the weather app, which updates when connected to the Internet.
I am having trouble with ICS on win 8. On my old laptop (win xp) I used to be able to share my 3Connect dongle internet to connect to Xbox live. I recently got a new laptop with win 8 and whenever I share this internet connection I can never connect on my Xbox (the network to internet part fails). When everything is connected up and shared the Ethernet says 'Unidentified Network' which i believe is the cause of the problem. I've read i may require a driver update but i cannot seem to find one.
My Laptop: Toshiba Satellite C855-29N
what to do, maybe i am not setting up the connection sharing properly?
Win 8.1 Pro x64, single-user computer. I don't know if it started with updating from 8 to 8.1 in December, but roughly since then I've getting been a fair number of error messages while saving or changing a program's default setting, saying directly or indirectly that I need administrator rights to do the operation. My user account is Standard and shows me as Administrator, and everywhere I look says I am Administrator with full administrator rights. Yet, as the screenshots below show, I now can't save to the system drive (C:) and can't even uncheck the default file manager setting within the XYplorer, my normal file manager. The other day I couldn't save an extracted folder under in its intended program folder in Program Files (x86), something I did numerous times with new versions of the same program under Win 8 and Win 7. What is the way to overcome this?
Okay, so in Windows 7 I am able to connect my wireless to my phone, and run an ethernet cable over to my Xbox. If I use the ICS feature and configure it under services to allow ports 88 and 53 UDP, it works fine. This also allows my Xbox to seemingly add to this list of ports as it finds necessary.
The issue is however, with Windows 8, although I can connect to Xbox Live the same way, it does not seemingly allow the Xbox to add more ports that it deems necessary. This leads to that NAT error message that I am actually trying to do this as a way to bypass it.
In Windows 7 this only works if the connection is set to Home (not sure about Work), but not public. I'm curious if the reason this does not work in Windows 8 is that Windows 8 does not have a Home option, but rather only Private or Public settings. There is some small setting buried deep somewhere that I just need to change to treat it like Windows 7 allows Xbox to treat home networks and configure/add ports automatically.
How can i create local WIFI network without having internet access on my pc. This seems to work if I have access to internet but when i disconnect internet connection my PC ( virtual router ) cannot see anymore other devices..
All other devices that are connecting to my virtual hostednetwork are working without any problems expect my pc. What have i missed that my PC where virtual hostednetwork is running cannot see devices in "virtual" network without internet access?
I just got a brand new Samsung Laptop for work. I dont know a ton about windows 8 either im fairly new to it. I work at a mental hospital doing security and we are allowed to have a laptop for over night shifts. I have an Alfa wireless antenna (cause i get low signal where im stationed) along with my normal laptop Wifi.
Heres the story. I was using my laptop antenna then out of no where it said "Identified Network (no internet access)" then my internet just stopped. I had this happen on my old laptop and it lasted a few days then worked like normal again. Then i switched to mt usb antenna and it worked fine for about 20 mins then all of a sudden it went it "Identified Network (no internet access)". So I was stuck with no internet. I tried looking up fixes on my ipod and i tried 3 Ways To Fix The Unidentified Network Error in Windows 8 and it didnt work I tried How To Fix Unidentified Network Windows - YouTube and it didn't work either. I'm dying here cause I have to sit in a room for 12 hours tonight with no way to keep my self from falling asleep or entertained.
I received a supposedly Manufacturer Refurbished HP ENVY TS 15 Notebook PC that I bought on Ebay. Since then, I've had multiple different BSOD errors while performing different tasks or even when doing nothing. Drivers seem to be updated and I'm concerned that this could be a hardware issue.
For a while now I've been getting BSODs, sometimes while playing games, sometime when watching Youtube, sometimes when using other programs. I'm suspicious of a driver issue, but when I tried using verifier.exe and rebooting I get another BSOD - "driver_verifier_iomanager_violation" followed by it rebooting a couple of times, more BSODs, giving an error and forcing a system restore.
Zip attached - I have a whole load other minidumps going back a couple of months if they're useful!
