wifi limited access on multiple devices

Q: wifi limited access on multiple devices

Okay, so I moved my wireless router to a more central location in my house (I got low signal in my room) and since then I've been able to connect to the network but only with limited access. Trying to connect to a webpage results in the "DNS lookup failed" error message (Chrome). My brother's computer had had the same issue, and the PlayStation 3 has had connectivity issues also, however I have been able to use my phone with the WiFi without any issues.

I've tried unplugging/turning the router on and off to no effect. Using a different router does not change the situation either. When I try to diagnose the network connection, it says that it could not identify the problem. Any ideas?

Some information:

Both computers run Windows 8
My phone is a Nokia Lumia 620 running WP8
The WiFi status window states that IPv4 and IPv6 have no internet access
My computer uses a Qualcomm Atheros AR5B125 wireless network adapter and says it is working correctly. The adapter is set to work with IPv4/6. IPv4 is set to obtain IP & DNS addresses automatically.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

For a Windows PC ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If your only email accounts are free (Hotmail, gmail, etc.) try this direct link. If you need help with a screen shot see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Identify your network if it is not obvious.

Also show ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

Hi my pc is having wifi issues. It is loading webpages very slow and will say "limited" when looking at the network it is connected to. If I disconnect and reconnect to the network it will say connected and then 5-10 mins later will be "limited" again and/or slow.
I thought at first it was my wireless card as both my phone and laptop connect to the wifi / internet speed and connection is fine in the same area. I replaced the wireless card in the PC with a wireless usb stick to connect to the wifi but the problem is exactly the same.
Does anyone know what is happening here or how to fix it?
Tried the following but cant find a fix:
its not a driver issue as ive reinstalled drivers / installed completely new wireless adapter and still same issues
if i reduce connections to the router the issue persists
the router is running on a channel no other routers are running on
if i run speedtest.net on the pc which is have issues the speed is slower than if i run on laptop or phone
Thanks a lot

Hi,

I can not get any internet running through my laptop, I have checked the hosts file, checked proxys, auto obtain ip address, and nothing is working... This is only a new problem, and have used both ways connecting to the Internet within the last week.
Any suggestions?

Hi, I've been having a problem for a week or so, where my internet will drop and become "limited" on certain devices, I own two laptops 1 on W7 and 1 on W8 and a Blackberry (this will never drop connection unless the router gets reset) The two laptops experience "limited" it is not linked to doing one specific thing when it stops working. if I click disconnect and then connect it USUALLY will come back instantly sometimes have to do it about 2 or 3 times, this is extremely irritating while watching shows or downloading because if I don't disconnect and re connect it will stay on "limited" for however long until I dis&re connect. This doesn't happen to my laptops at the same time, meaning that isn't likely a router problem (BB is always connected) I'm actually surprised that it has actually stayed connected this long.

I was reading a similar thread, and it didn't solve my problem but I did attach the cmd and xirrus.

noted: Casa is the personal internet for us and "instantlawns" is for my roommates' business. also my other roommates' internet does a similar thing where it goes limited but nowhere nearly as often as mine.

Hello,

Switched over the internet service provider to Time Warner. We are using the same router we have used before the switch (which was also with Time Warner service provider) and everything was working FINE before the switch. But now, with the new modem from service provider something is wrong -- My roommate is unable to connect her laptop, and her phone to the wifi even though the network is being detected. I can only connect to my laptop, which was the laptop I had opened to verify connectivity when the Technician was there. Also, my I-phone is unable to connect to the network even though it detects it. It's very odd considering we had the technician come out to resolve this issue in the first place. Could it be that the DHCP server has been turned off, so it's allowing only one device to connect to the one IP address on the modem?
Or do we need to delete the wifi networks off of our computers and other devices? My roommate tried that on her devices and still didn't connect. Please help.
 

A:Unable to connect multiple devices to home wifi

Do you know if your new modem includes WiFi? Is so, when you tested the connection with the technician present, did they have you connect wirelessly to your existing wireless router or to the modem itself?

Assuming you are running some version of Windows on the computer that can connect, please go into the Windows DOS/Command prompt screen and run an IPCONFIG /ALL command. Then copy and paste the complete results of the command here.

there cold be several reasons.

first try ipconfig /flushdns, then ipconfig /renew if that helps it is a dns issue

if that doesnt help and you are using "homegroup" it may well be that for homegroup has connectivity issues on some mixed OS networks. you can verify it by making a new network connection using "workgroup". If that works you can then kill IPv6, and homegroup

Hi, im having trouble with my wifi. The day before it works fine but then the next day i turned on my Vaio laptop and it says Limited Access to my home wifi. I tried connecting to other wifi but same thing. I tried resetting the router, disabling and enabling the wireless connection but all didnt work. I tried connecting it with the cable directly still cannot connect. Finally i did a system restore to the day before where its working fine, it worked. The next day it says Limited Access again! So im guessing 'something' made my wifi error after that 1 day and i dont know what to do.. Any help would be appreciated.

I am not sure why, but my laptop at the office constantly goes to limited connectivity only. If I disconnect and connect it will work again, but then the cycle repeats anywhere between 2 minutes after to a couple of hours.

There are lots of other computers in the office and only mine is doing this. I have gone into the cmd prompt and run an ipconfig dnsflush release and renew. I have gone to the intel website and installed the newest drivers from my wifi chip and if anything it might be happening a bit more often.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

I am at a loss of what to try next, it would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me out. I am happy to follow instructions posted and provide any log files that you think may be of use.

Hi,

so I came home from college for break and my laptop connected fine to my house WiFi on Thursday but starting last night (I didn't use it on Friday or Saturday) my laptop has "limited access" to my house WiFi. No internet access at all.

I went to Starbuck's earlier and it connected without any issues. My brother claims that it's my college's (unprotected) WiFi that changed my settings so it won't let me connect to the protected house WiFi but it worked fine with the house WiFi on Thursday night.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated

Every time I start my laptop, I can't access the internet and get a "limited access" warning on my wireless network.
The "troubleshoot problems" option fixes the problem (usually by resetting the network adapter), but it's not a permanent solution, because as soon as I restart the laptop, it's the same story all over again.

I have a desktop (Windows 7) connected through ethernet and another desktop (XP Home) also connected over wifi, both working just fine.

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Network adapter: Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
Signal strength: fair (starting my laptop right next to the router to get excellent strength doesn't help)
Modem/Router: B-Box2 (Sagem [email protected] 3464)
Firewall: Windows Firewall
Antivirus: AVG Free Edition

A:WiFi limited access on startup

Most likely this is because of a preinstalled wireless connection software which can be uninstalled by going to add/remove programs. In most cases it's best to use the Windows 7 connection wizard.

I would definitely get rid of the "free" AVG as this software causes connection problems all the time.

Let me know if those changes have any effect on the problem.

Hey guys I need help please. I am using a Toshiba NB505 Netbook running Windows 7 Starter.

I usually access the internet via tethering my phone - and yesterday morning when I tried to play my morning crossword puzzle, I received an error stating that an important file "xw_control.xml" could not be found. I was using Firefox so I tried Chrome, with the same result.

I googled and learned (I think) that this file is possibly flash related, and I know my flash was out of date - so I downloaded the latest flash from Adobe.

Now I am unable to connect to the internet at all. It connects to my phone, but with "Limited access". And I tried a wifi location at my local library and it does the same thing - Limited access only.

I have restarted, shutdown, and done a battery-pull on the phone - to no avail. I have no idea what is happening, so I'm hoping you guys can help me. Thank you very much.

A:Limited access only when trying to connect to wifi etc.

I uninstalled flash to no avail. So I guess I can't blame that. How do I go about troubleshooting the limited access? I have connected just fine to this phone (and other networks) for a long time. Until now...

Hi there everyone ,

I have an HP Elitebook 8460p on Windows 7 connecting with Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced N-6205.

I used to be able to connect a certain WiFi connection for a long time, then suddenly, the day after... Trying to connect, it connects for a second (i see white bars and connection looks fine), i open up Chrome which says no connection found (blank page appears) and then WiFi Signal in my tray gets a yellow triangle with exclamation mark [Limited-Access]. Since the problem started, I am able to connect through another WiFi connection named linksys_media that I never saw before and that is WEIRDLY having the SAME password as the one I am suppose to be able to connect to at first... I've uninstalled my drivers, reinstalled... Problem still here... The password is good... I don't know... Sometimes instead of writing Limited-Access it says No Internet Access... and with my IPhone I am able to connect with the password and connection works fine.... Please Help... My ex-connection was way faster than linksys_media to which I am connected at the moment.

P.s. I've found a post on this site with an answer that solved problem for many but I didn't have AVG installed and didn't find AVG Internet Filter or something like in my protocols...

THANKS!

I have a new Toshiba (not sure if that really matters) which came with Windows 8. The other 12 people who share my wifi used Windows 7. I don't know if that's important.Main point: I am the only one in my house whose computer cannot use the wifi. I used it for about three weeks with not more complicatios than everyone else until a day or two ago. Now while others have normal access mine continues to be limited with not internet access. When Microsoft searches for a problem it says "Problems found: 'Wi-Fi doesn't have a valid IP configuration'". Do I need to do something with my computer, the modem, the router, or something else?Many thanks

A:Wifi connected with limited access

The other 12 people who share my wifi used Windows 7Although routers can connect multiple devices at the same time by wireless there are some obstacle you must check first like the distance and interference. The wireless feature of the router such as channel and signal would be the clear probable solution. Depending also on your router, look for an updated firmware version that might stabilize your whole connection and try updating your network adapter if available.

It?s a desktop using wifi to avoid a long cable deployment. I?m using my husband?s machine, right next to mine, to post about it, over the same wifi network, but according to my machine there are either no networks available or the connection is limited, which seems to mean useless. The device manager says the network card and the wifi fob are working correctly, and i had no trouble until 2 days ago. I got out an old, long cable and connected to the network with that, and for a few minutes Chrome said there was no internet connection while Skype worked fine. Now Chrome has found the network.
I tried the reset IP stack solution suggested in a closely related thread today with no luck. Utorrent had sent out an update just before this started, i tried deleting it and ran CCleaner. This has been an intermittent problem, as well - last night the wifi worked fine.

After doing the diagnostics, it said the following:
Problems found:
"Wireless Network Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration

Well, clearly it doesn't because the DHCP didn't assign it one, because, hey, it couldn't connect!

For giggles, I entered what I know to be the right IP address for this computer, along with the gateway and DNS settings, and sure enough, it works. So, for some reason, the DHCP isn't working.

I am not sure what I've done to the computer to cause this. It connects to other WiFi networks just fine (Starbucks, hotel and airport networks, work network)

Also, although I'm using DHCP, in the router, I've set up each computer in the network to be assigned a fixed address. So, the set up I have now will work fine, but I'm sure that if I go to another network, I'll have to switch back to DHCP client on the laptop.

Furthermore, the home network wifi works just fine when I use the MacBook. So that means, the router is fine and is able to assign it an address.

A:WiFi started saying Limited Access all of a sudden

Just to clarify does the router give out ip's to any machine?
Are you sure that the Mac book is getting a dynamic (random) ip everytime and that it isn't just using the last one? have you tried renewing the ip on the mac book to see if it finds a new one (don't ask me how :P)

I would suggest rebooting the router and changing the DHCP range on it, if it uses 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 then change it to 192.168.x.1 (something like 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) it may well be the router has forgot to release the ip's it has previously assigned to devices and hence has run out.

I use a laptop and recently the wifi has stopped working for me. I can still connect completely but it says with "limited access," which results in me being unable to access the internet at all. The rest of the computers in the house work fine on the wifi and I double-checked the securtiy settings (WAP2 and all that) and it seems fine. What can I do? Tethering to my phone allows me to get on the internet and the computer connects successfully, but no websites will load whatsoever.

My situation is a little bit hard to explain but I'll try to tell you the best I can; about 3 days ago my father cut the power to the house too replace a bathroom light without getting electrocuted. Ever since then my laptop has been playing up in all sorts of ways, most notably the poor internet connection (hence why I put this thread in the network area because I'm not too sure what's going on with it at all).

To sum up it's problems quickly: certain things tend to take a lot of time on it. Plugging in memory sticks, opening up new Windows, even the Internet. I do know that it isn't my family's wifi that is the problem, all our other devices work and my laptop has the same trouble with my school's Internet (also because it isn't only my wifi being effected). I also know that it's not memory or CPU related.

It pretty much turned from a pretty decent laptop of it's age to the slowest computer in the world within an hour.

Anyone what the problem is, or do I need to give anymore detail?

Hi, first post but very much need help. I saw similar threads to what my problem is but not exactly the same.

Basically I got a new wireless adapter last weekend. It was working fine, but then an automatic windows update occurred and I could not connect to the Internet anymore. It just says "limited access". I system restored to before the update and it went back to working fine. But now I can't restore to that previous point anymore so Internet is completely gone. I've not been able to get a cable to connect yet but I'm fairly sure that will work. However I would obviously prefer wireless to work.

I'm positive it has to do with this update but have no idea what and how to solve it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there.
I am using my phones 3G to type this and it's a real nuisance since I cannot research information for essays and other important aspects that I need when studying for my A levels.

Anyway, it started last night around 11pm, everything died and I thought it was because of the bad weather.
I woke up to sunshine however the internet was still not working.

The router is a SuperHub 2 and it had no problems up till now, the lights for 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz are flashing and so are the other lights on the router - this the router is working.

The problem is the connectivity, I use my laptop, iPhone and computer all together when studying and playing games. All of which has the same problem. All have the 5 bars connectivity however they all say "no internet access" and no response from the DNS servers.

What is the problem then?


What I've done:
- I have release and renewed the IPs
- reset router numerous times
- turned on: off router numerous times
- fiddled with wires to make sure they're plugged in.
- turned on and off computers and laptops.
- set IvP4 to automatic.
- waited hours.
- went onto the Virgin Media router page via 192.168.0.X. Then I started the router up in factory status, starting I up a few times.


How do I fix this nuisance? I need the internet now, for work purposes.
Please help, since it's affecting me and my family members and all of our devices.

A:No internet access on multiple devices

Does the Virgin Media router page give you a status of the WAN?

We had a bad storm last week and it took a few days after power was restored for Comcast to repair their lines.

I was able to get to my router, but the WAN address was 0.0.0.0 - can't get there from here!

If you have a WAN address, turn everything off (no power) then
power up your cable modem, wait a few minutes for it to cycle through what it cycles through
power up your router (if seperate) wait for it to cycle through what it cycles through
finally power up your machine and check the network status on the Virgin Media router

If you don't have a WAN address, report the outage to your provider. They probably already know about your area, but a call never hurts.

I never had this problem before until now. Usually, it would be working right after a clean install but i guess
my luck ran out. This happen ever since i bought myself a Macbook Pro Retina. Maybe my laptop is very jealous -.-

A:Limited Access (WiFi Connection) after fresh install Windows 7

Plug it in via ethernet cable to your router or modem, enable Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3) and watch for driver to be installed in bottom-right System Tray. If it does, run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates which should deliver your other drivers including wireless.

If not in Device Manager click on Network driver for wireless, on Driver tab have it Update Automatically.

If that fails import the Wireless driver from the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC using the Serial Number or model number, choosing Wifi or Wireless LAN and the bit version. Download the isntaller, unzip, rightclick on Setup to run, or browse into the driver folder from Device Manager>Network driver>Update driver>Browse.

If you have problems with any of this let us know.

Just recently my HP ProBook 4520s, running Windows 7 32-bit, has had trouble connecting to the internet through WiFi. I've been reading into it and looking around the net, but to no avail. It shows my home network and connects, but with limited access (no access to the net in my case).

I did a system restore in hopes that it would fix the problem, and I got access for all of 30 seconds before it went back to limited connectivity. I manually updated the network card drivers, and still nothing. It's leading me to believe that its my router blocking access (Netgear WNDR3700). I haven't had a problem up until recently and its only with the laptop. My desktop PC, game consoles, and television can all still access the internet, with the desktop connecting through WiFi as well. I checked the router logs and noticed several DoS attacks and was thinking this may have something to do with it (and possibly laptop being infected?).

Hello all,

I have been having this "limited access" problem that prevents me from connecting to the internet. There is a "!" located on top of my signal bars in the icon tray and it says "limited access" under my wifi network.

This all occured during a malware removal process. It would seem the malware and viruses are gone but this problem still persists.

-All other computers and devices are still able to connect to the network.
-turned off router and turned back on.
-retyped network password.
-disconnected / reconnected.
Any help would be great, thank you all in advance.

2. Right click on My Computer
3. Click Manage
4. Click Device Manager from the list on the left
5. Click the + next to Network Adapters
6. Right click your Wireless Network Adapter
7. Click Uninstall
8. If a check box appears to delete the driver software for this device, check the box
9. Click OK
10. Restart your computer
11. Let Windows install the driver software
12. Find the newest driver software and install it from the Wireless Network Adapter's manufacturer site (if you need help with this, let us know)
Edit: Doing the above steps will require you to set up your wireless network on the computer affected. You will need your encryption key(s).

Hi everyone,

I have recently switched my work laptop from Win XP to Win 7 and have started encountering a weird WiFi issue.

When I turn the laptop on in the morning it auto connects to my home WiFi without any problem, but indicates that there is limited access and I can't use anything requiring internet.

So my first reaction was to disconnect/reconnect and guess what? It worked.

Now every single day I have to do the same manual disconnect/reconnect, which is getting old fast

I tried troubleshooting this issue and here are some conclusion I reached based on my testing:
- No such issue encountered with any Win XP machine
- No such issue encountered with any Ubuntu machine (12.04)
- Exact same issue encountered on my girlfriend's laptop (also on Win 7)
- My work laptop uses a VPN to access the company's network, but I manually launch it after the internet is connected, so it cannot have an impact on the initial WiFi connection

I have attached the result of ipconfig /all if it can help, but at this point I'm stuck.

Would anyone have any suggestion?

I'm trying to fix my girlfriend's Windows 7 laptop after she had a virus/malware infection. I'm pretty sure we've successfully cleared the virus (an updated/full scan with Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware in safe mode comes up clean). However, we have had no Internet access since the infection. The wireless router/connection itself is fine (I connect to it daily with my laptop, as I am to write this post) but her laptop won't connect to it, we can't browse any web pages.

I may have made the problem worse in trying to resolve it. I stupidly followed the advice on a forum for some registry edits for Windows XP--deleting WinSock and WinSock2 from the registry and then restarting the computer in hopes they'd re-register themselves. Unfortunately, WinSock2 re-appeared but WinSock did not. I'm wondering if this has created a new problem (or compounded the problems we were already having).

In diagnostics, we currently get the following report: "Wireless Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration." I just ran an ipconfig in the command prompt and got the following results:

So I have this problem that has been bugging me for months. I use the public library often. I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook and it works great 99% of the time, except in this specific library. The wifi just will not stay connected. It stays connected in almost all other public and private places but not this library. Now it is a big library and I'm using the standard Windows 7 wifi software so the library wifi only shows up as a single entry in the list of available wifi networks. However when using inSSIDer I can see that there are 11 SSID's with a mix of channels 1, 6, and 11. The wifi is all open with no password. My feeling is that it possibly keeps switching to whatever signal is the closest but I'm not sure. All I know is that it sporadically will go to limited connection and I have to manually disconnect and reconnect in order for it to work again. I can wait it out but that takes longer.

Is there any way to have me stay connected to a specific SSDI or channel? Are there more optimized wifi software I can use besides the stock Windows software? What would be causing it do go to limited connection every 10 minutes. Also the connection is great 4 bars usually and it doesn't physically disconnect it just becomes limited and then there is no use. Any other ideas?

Thanks

Hi there,
I find this problem very tricky to explain due to its weirdness, so my apologies if this explanation doesn't come across very well.

I have been dealing with a very strange problem in that for several hours of each day (usually in the evenings) my Ipad suddenly refuses to send and recieve mail via the Ipad mail app. Also, during these same periods my PS3 console is blocked from the playstation network. My PC running XP mostly remains fine except youtube is often inaccessible via my gmail login and some sites appear to slow down, while most sites (non-google related) appear to behave as normal.
 
Strangely, I am still able to access my gmail inbox via web broswers on both my PC and Ipad - but the Ipad app itself refuses to work at all.
The problem only exists for periods of a few hours each day and then everything returns to normal with no problems of notice.
After running a quick scan with Malwarebytes, it found "pup.offerware" which I removed.

If I run a 'cmd' ping test on the URL, it attempts four connections and fails. The windows host files are fine and I've tried turning of all firewalls, anti-viruses, malwares for a short time to test. Still fail.

I'm trying to fix my girlfriend's Windows 7 laptop after she had a virus/malware infection. I'm pretty sure we've successfully cleared the virus (an updated/full scan with Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware in safe mode comes up clean). However, we have had no Internet access since the infection. The wireless router/connection itself is fine (I connect to it daily with my laptop, as I am to write this post) but her laptop won't connect to it, we can't browse any web pages.

I may have made the problem worse in trying to resolve it. I stupidly followed the advice on a forum for some registry edits for Windows XP--deleting WinSock and WinSock2 from the registry and then restarting the computer in hopes they'd re-register themselves. Unfortunately, WinSock2 re-appeared but WinSock did not. I'm wondering if this has created a new problem (or compounded the problems we were already having).

In diagnostics, we currently get the following report: "Wireless Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration." I just ran an ipconfig in the command prompt and got the following results:

I installed Windows 10 2 days ago and since then I have an issue where my Internet will fluctuate between Connected and Limited, which prevents me from accessing any web pages or applications. I've tried everything from resetting the router, replacing the router, trying to do an ipconfig /release and /renew (which didn't work, I couldn't release for some reason.) I'm seeing a lot of some similar issues where people are running into issues with their Adapter Drivers and I'm trying to figure out if maybe that's my problem. I'm using a Rosewill RNX-N250PCe and I'm running Windows 10 as previously stated. If anyone knows what I can try to do and possibly walk me through it (with links if possible) then it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hello all,

I have just bought a HP G61-410SA laptop. When turning it on initially I wasn't able to find my router that is plugged in to my PC to set up an internet connection. After trying a few things it finally found the signal and I tryed to connect to it. The signal strength, from the laptop to my O2 router, is full strength however there is a message saying "limited access" and I am unable to load any webpages on the laptop. Any help on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated. If any further information is required could you be very specific on how to find it as most I.T goes over my head!

I tryed putting an extra ethernet cable in the back of my router and plugging it in to the laptop which did work but sort of defeats the purpose of having the laptop. I don't know if that helps any or makes a diffrence.

Thanks

Paul

Hi all,
I have a rather perplexing problem with internet access from my laptop (Win 7 Home Premium, Avast Free). My property is a large building with thick, granite walls so I've added 3 hard-wired, wireless access points (2 recycled, old routers and a TP-Link WAP) in various locations back to the main router (BT Homehub 3), served by up-to 8Mbps BT broadband service (I typically get 6Mbps - no fibre-broadband available here!) Just to complicate things a little more, this is a holiday property with 4 other families staying, so bandwidth use is a little difficult to control.
Mostly, everyone has been fine: my Android phone, my Nexus tablet and my wife's iPad plus other visitors' various devices all connect via wifi from any of the access points. (Everyone had problems this morning but I think BT may have been doing something with the exchange overnight so I'm going to assume, for now, it's just my laptop that's having problems).
OK, the laptop will connect to any access point, including the main router, but generally states "No internet access" from there. I say "generally" because it has done on past visits to the property and sometimes connects briefly - usually if I reset, disconnect or unplug something. Also, I CAN connect the laptop via Ethernet from any point.
Can someone outline a process I can try to identify and fix the laptop please? If problems recur with other kit I may need help with my local network too.
Thanks,

Looks like Ghosts of DLNA devices. Start by taking offline any DLNA capable gear, reboot the Gateway and also clear its IP Table.

Also clear out those ghosts from Devices and Printers.

For some reason this started in Windows 7, when Microsoft started to play games with DLNA and media Shares.

I have been unable to connect to anything on my wired network, for about the last week. I don't remember making any changes however, I just became unable to connect.

I having done a little troubleshooting.

1. I can connect to the shares of my Windows Home Server if I use the IP address. The name does not resolve.

2. Flushed DNS and restarting DNS server. Flushing DNS works on one client, to allow browsing by the name & restarting DNS works on the other. However neither works after a restart.

3. Only my Wifi clients are experiencing this issue. My wired clients, desktops, PS3, Xbox 360, and Boxee can connect perfectly.

This issue is not limited to my server. I can't connect to shares on my desktop, nor print to my wired printer.

Some network background:

I have DSL through CenturyLink and have a Linksys E2000 router.

Sent a test page from one laptop to the printer at 6:36pm, it finally printed at 6:48pm....

Our ISP recently updated their hard ware to work with the Sprint network. Note: our ISP is not Sprint, but the local phone company.

Our Hardware:
Internet: DSL 10.0 (highest speed available)
Modem: Comtrend (ISP provides)
Router: Belkin N
Computer: 10 yr old Dell running XP - service pac3 - wired connection
Kindle Fire (first edition, no HD, etc) - wireless connection
Xbox 360 - wireless connection

Issues:
Xbox - went from constantly bumped from Xbox Live game by losing internet connection to not being able to enter a game at all
Kindle - went from occasional "network error' message during online tasks to having to restart download (multiple times) or refresh page for most any or all online tasks
Computer - have to click refresh to get most any page to load after the home page

What we've tried so far:
I have recently cleared the cache on both the computer and Kindle. XBox's new security measures have been met.

My questions:
Do any or all of these issues seem to be related?
Is there a piece of equipment or something we may be missing to make all of these things work? I am a networking novice.
Who should I call to get these issues corrected, my ISP or a tech service? Note: if I start with the ISP and they do not find an issue I have to pay for the call.
 

A:Multiple issues over multiple devices

First. You should try to NOT use a wireless connection for any type of gaming: PC, Mac, Console, etc. If you can hard wire the xbox you'll be waaay better off than using wireless.

Now... Yes, the issues could be related - there maybe an issue with the Belkin N router. I'd try to first reset the Belkin router to default settings, check on manufacturer website for instructions how, most routers you can press a "reset" button w/ a paperclip or ball point pen. Reconfigure the Belkin router, recreate the wireless network and see how everything works. If you are still having issues, humor me and connect the Dell directly to the DSL modem, bypassing Belkin router. See if you still have connection issues, if you do then it could be the DSL modem that is the problem and call your ISP to replace. If you don't have same issues then it's most likely an issue with the Belkin router. Replace it. Don't buy the dirt cheapest router at the store, but you most likely don't need the most expensive one either. Find a good middle ground router, ask sales associate to assist you accordingly.

Post back, Hope this helps!!

I have a fairly new Acer all in one AMD A6-5200 APU with Windows 8.1. My wifi keeps going to limited connectivity. I'm not a very tech savy person but I have tried a lot of things to resolve this and nothing has worked. From the simple reset or cycling of the Modem/router (It's a cisco DPC 3825), to tcp/ip stack reset, whatever that is (saw it on-line and tried it but no luck.) The wifi works fine for other devices in the house (an iPhone, 2 ipads, and an x-box 360.) Thought it might be interference as I'm in a heavily wifi'ed neighborhood but the modem channel setting is on auto and says it picks a channel with "acceptable interference." When I troubleshoot the connection, it says it is set to connect manually and then says it can't fix it itself. So I set it to connect automatically, restart the computer and I still have the same problems. I would experiment with different drivers, but I'm not sure how to do that or even where to go in windows to find them. Any help out there?

I just bought a new Acer laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium and am having serious range issues with its WiFi. I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router which is at one end of my house on a table about 4 feet off the ground. When I work with the new laptop at my kitchen table which is about 8 feet from the router all is fine. I get 4.5 to 5 bars and an Excellent signal strength rating as reported by Windows.

Whenever I move into my living room which is about 50 feet away and through a couple of walls I can't get any signal at all from the router. I have tried everything I can think of including resetting the router, and changing the router channel from 6 to 11 and nothing works and I am frustrated. My wife's Toshiba laptop (running Windows 7 Home Premium) connects just fine from the living room and the bedroom (which is farther away) and my older Dell Lattitude laptop (running Windows XP Pro) connects fine as well so what the heck gives? I like the laptop but I can't use a laptop that drops a signal when I move more than 10 feet away.

I've been googling the heck out of this.  I updated to Windows 8.1 on my laptop a few weeks ago.  Ever since, I can only hold a wifi connection for maybe 15-20 min max.  Else it goes to a "limited" status where I have to disconnect and reconnect and then all is well again for another 15-20.  This has happened at my home, at hotels, at my parents' place.  I've been traveling a lot so I'm seeing it everywhere.
 
My Mac and iphone and other wireless devices at home are not having any issues with wifi connectivity.
 
Based on my searches, I verified that my driver is updated, I made sure that the power saver for network is unchecked.  What else can I do?  The MS website just keeps referring to the driver or your ISP.  It's clearly not either of those.
 
Network adapter is Broadcom 802.11n

I have an issue with my laptop that I am utterly baffled by. If anybody could help me solve it, I'd much appreciate it. I have an HP 17-e020dx running Windows 8 which I purchased two years ago. Until recently I lived abroad and had limited internet so in the two yrs I had this laptop abroad, I believe I ran Windows Update maybe only two times. Upon returning stateside, I set about updating everything from Windows Update. Everything was fine, the only issue being that it didn't seem my laptop could update to 8.1 despite being prompted to do so. A couple of weeks later we had a power outage and I used the laptop until the battery died and then turned the laptop back on when the power came back. When the laptop turned on, that was when I discovered that the wifi connection was limited despite working on all other devices. I googled around and tried a few solutions to no avail before trying a system restore which seemed to do the trick. I thought nothing of it after that until the issue came up again a few weeks later, probably when I restarted the laptop, only this time system restore didn't fix the problem. Eventually I got frustrated enough and decided to reformat the whole computer because I'd read some articles that suggested one of the updates caused this which seemed to make sense to me since I never had this connectivity problem abroad (when I hadn't run Update) . After reformatting the computer I never ran Windows Update. In fact I turned it off. For approximately two we... Read more

I apologize if this is not the right forum. Please feel free to move as needed.
A few days ago I began getting the BSOD every time I would turn on my laptop. The error consistently being shown was KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (NETwbw02.sys). After several failed attempts to get the computer to turn on, I did a full restore, as there wasn't anything saved on the pc anyway. After the restore, I could turn it on, but continued to get the same error and BSOD every time I would try connecting to WiFi. I ran every windows update I could, and updated all drivers, including the Intel drivers for my wireless. The BSOD is now gone, but I can't connect to my network. I've tried using the router PIN and the network password, but neither works. I attempted to contact Toshiba Support, and they think it's an error with the registry, but want $100 to make sure. I can connect just fine with the Ethernet cable.
I can take screen shots or provide whatever information is needed. I've attached the info displayed from ipconfig /all from both Ethernet and wifi.

I cannot sytem restore or anything also so dont suggest it.

Hello everyone. First i'm sorry for my bad english, but i think u'll understand me.
Yesterday i installed Windows 10, all was fine, but after hour of working, i saw that my wifi connection goes to limited and i don't have internet acces. I need to disconnect and connect and it works for 30-45 minutes, and then again go to limited. I have windows 7 before, and there i don't have this problem, but when i tried windows 8(half year ago) i have same issue.
I have Hp pavillion g7-1307sm laptop.
Motherboard: HP 1672

I think it's maybe problem with my network adapter driver( Broadcom 4313GN 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi adapter ), becouse i think it's old. It is from 15/08/2012. Version: 6.30.59.49

If u need any more information, just say, and i hope u will help me about this problem.

A:Windows 10 WiFi goes to limited

Have you tried resetting your Router so the WI-FI signal is stronger
Normally you have to shut Router down via main or Use Reset Button found through a little hole in back.
Once done just reconnect and it should reboot
That is how I have had to do mine in the past.

Also see if there are any updated drivers for your model

Hi -- I'm new here and I'm not sure I am posting this in the right forum, but my Gateway laptop won't access the internet and gives me the error in the network and connections as "connected with limited access" or "local only". My other computers connect fine to the router so its definitely my computer. I have Vista OS -- Gateway online "help" said I have a defective network card because the IP address came back as a default. So, I bought a usb network card, disabled my other one and still didn't work. I tried an ethernet cable and that doesn't work either. I also tried connecting to my city's free wifi with the same result.
System Restore didn't work
I put my setting to find the DNS and IP automatically
My Wireless network shows as connected -- I am just not able to get an IP

I had previously had an intermittent problem with this and assumed it was the signal. Now, it just stopped working entirely.

I am thinking this must be a problem with Vista, because the other network card and the cable didn't work either. Any ideas on how to fix this?

A:"Connected w/ Limited Access" No Internet Access, Can't find IP address

When I am on my computer at random times my asus laptop would drop my internet. I am using a wireless connection and my connection is not bad. Just wondering if there is a quick fix to this. I am not the most knowledgeable computer guy but I could follow directions if you guys need addition info of my laptop.

Thank you! Any help would be appreciated.
