Network / Sharing :: Limited WiFi Network Connectivity On Windows 8 Laptop
Jun 9, 2014
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 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 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.
My Windows 8 laptop is having some WiFi connection issues.
Basically what happens is that every 5-20 minutes I cannot access the internet on browsers and the wifi connection is listed as "Limited".
The laptop: ASUS Vivobook S200E
The WiFi: Sky wireless router (no idea about model, it's almost two years old) But what I will say is that my Windows 7 laptop never skips a beat on this network, nor does my wife's Mac, nor do our 2 Android tablets, the iPad, the iPhone, the Android phone, and various devices that our friends connect when they come round. Literally no other device has any problems on this network, so I know (by the process of elimination) the Windows 8 laptop is the one with the problem.
In order to fix the issue I have to disconnect from the network, wait about 30 sec and reconnect again.
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 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'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.
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 just bought a Lenovo Y500 a couple of days ago and it came with a pre-installed Windows 8 everything seems working fine but when it comes to Wifi it randomly disconnects a lot , sometimes shows limited access and most of the time the signal strength bars keep going up and down.
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.
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.
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".
Recently I got a new laptop installed with windows 8. When I try to join any locally created ad hoc network(created from another laptop loaded with widows 7) to play multiplayer games(no internet connection involved) it shows limited connectivity instead of connected. when I inspected the wireless properties, I noted that my laptop sends packet but not receiving anything in return. so I tried to give ipv4 address manually rather than acquiring automatically. now my laptop both seds and receives data, but still it shows limited connectivity. I couldn't join the game.
When I am connected to my college's network, it works just fine, but every few minutes or so, my WiFi network connection suddenly goes to "Limited" and I lose my internet access. It doesn't actually disconnect, but it just says it is limited. If I disconnect and reconnect, it works fine, but then a couple minutes later it does it again. I can't seem to see any pattern to it, but sometimes I think it happens more when I am in a full-screen application like a game or Netflix or something. Also, this only seems to happen in my dorm building. If I go to another building, and connect, it seems that the problem goes away.
I have a problem that when I joined my new tablet to the network it connects normally but it has some issues. It says that I am connected with limited connectivity. Also when doing an ipconfig /all it says that the DNS Server is 127.0.0.1 and there are no DNS Servers on the device. What could have happened is that along time ago there was a DC named exactly like my new device.
I renamed the device and still I am experiencing the same issues.
Another weird thing is that I can browse the internet easily but then when for example I go and log in to Skydrive it says that I do not have an internet connection.
So my wifi drops randomly I have done almost everything I found on my goggle search such as; Unchecking power management, Max Power performance, resetting my tcp(think that's it), something involving ipconfig, and countless other things.
I really want to start back gaming on my pc but the random wifi drops really ruin my experience.
Also I may have a DNS server problem? My wifi is working fine on my gaming consoles, phones, and my mom's laptop.
My Brand new Laptop: Lenovo g505 after upgrading it to windows 8.1 from MS Apps store now i am not able to connect to internet i get "limited" or "No Internet Access". i have tried to re install the driver no luck
Lenovo support suggests to do factory rest but i dont want to go back to windows 8 ...
I just traveled to a place where there is supposed to be wifi and I am staying here for a while. The wifi connects well through Ipod, but when connecting through windows 8 it accepts the password but tells me this connection is limited.
I searched through some threads and did some of the solutions such as the netsh reset for example but none have worked so far. Should I do a factory reset to my laptop?
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.
OK, it seems like I'm part of the vast conspiracy to not have 8.1 connect to the internet. Here is what's going on;
Wifi indicator shows "!" and reads "limited".
When I open the browser and click to diagnose the issue it runs through and ends with a message saying the default gateway has been fixed. About every fifth time it'll give me "The connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken." This computer works fine when plugged directly into the Ethernet cable from the router. Every other device on the router (other pc, xbox) work fine.

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 recently bought a new laptop (Lenovo T440s, Win 8.1 Pro w/ update 1, Intel 7260AC). I've tried connecting via wireless in multiple locations, and haven't had any problems except in one location, which is at my office's public access WiFi. I can get onto the network and get internet access on my win7 laptop, and on my Surface 2. With the new Lenovo it appears that I've connected to the wireless network, but have no internet connection. When I initially select the network I get connected, and can open a web page. But then it switches to a "limited" connection and I no longer have access.
Windows defender/firewall is on. No other security things that I know of (I deleted the Norton trial that came with it).
There is a screen that comes up when I log on with any device that asks you to accept that you will not download porn, steal the firstborn child, etc. I've bookmarked the page and been able to push the button to agree, but I still lose the connection shortly after that.
I don't have the internet connection anywhere on the computer (this isn't just a browser issue).
I've tried reinstalling the wireless driver. No luck. I have the most recent version (17), and I've also tried installing the Intel PROset/wireless software as noted in this thread (BT Public Wifi works on Windows 7 but not Windows
8.). But quite honestly I'm not totally sure what to try doing after that is installed. I ran the diagnosis tool, and got a failure on the ping test (No Response: default gateway, DHCP server).
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 have a relatively new HP Envy (H8-1485ea), with no modifications made, running windows 8. I have had the been using it with a wired connection at university with no problems and on return home connected wirelessly. Initially I encountered no issues, however after about 2 days the status of the connection went to limited and has remained that way since.
On running the windows troubleshooter it stated that the "wifi doesn't have a valid ip configuration".
I searched and found to run the commands which resolved similar problems: netsh winsock reset catalog netsh int ip reset rest.log hit
However as shown in the attached image for the second command resetting failed. I have also attached my ip configuration.
I just bought a msi s30 laptop yesterday. So everything went fine when I test the wifi connection before I go to sleep. When I say fine, I mean I could connect to the internet. Then when I woke up this morning, I turn on the wifi but it says "no network found". I check the router and it is working perfectly fine. I also checked the device driver and its also working properly.
I recently got a data plan for my HTC One S. The wireless hotspot that came with it will work on my family's iPods, iPad, and our family laptop, but not on my Toshiba laptop with Windows 8. I have tried my dad's iPhone's wireless hotspot, and it works on my laptop. When I try my hotspot, my laptop will connect to it, but it will only give me limited access, meaning that no pages on the internet will load. What may be wrong with my laptop or phone?
For some reason my windows 8 Hp will not connect to my home wifi network. Has had no problem connecting in the past but yesterday I unplugged my router to move it to another part of my house and ever since then it can't connect. My cell phone and other laptop connect to the internet no problem.
On my Hp it will show a list of wifi networks and my home network is on the list, however, when I try to connect to it and then troubleshoot the problem it says I can't connect to the network because it is hidden. I don't see how thats possible since the network name shows up on the list of nearby wifi networks.
What I've done but hasn't worked: Reset my router and laptop multiple times. Tried to manually connect to network. Forgot the network on my laptop and tried to reconnect.
I don't understand how one day it can connect to the wifi fine and then I unplug it and all of a sudden it can't connect but my other devices can.
