I recently purchased a Pavilion 17t at Costco. Overall, I'm liking the  computer. But it has one major issue, that is unacceptable for a laptop computer. The wifi keeps not working. I haven't found a pattern to this either. I will be connected to my wifi network, and then suddenly the internet will stop working. It still shows connected to the router, but can't reach the internet. I have contacted HP support twice about this now, and their solution has not resolved the issue. The BIOS has been updated, the driver has been updated, Windows 10 has been updated, the wireless driver has been uninstalled and reinstalled. I still have the issue. If I attempt a restart when this happens, the restart takes a very, very long time. I've clocked it at 2 minutes before I did a manual power button restart on it. But the restart issue seems to happen every time the wifi issue happens(assuming I do a restart). I've tried turning the wifi off and on, and that proves difficult. It will often turn back on as soon as I turn it off, or not respond at all to my attempts. If I connect a wired connection to the laptop, I am able to connect to the internet again. All other devices on the wireless router will continue to work fine when this computer does not. What would be my next steps to try and resolve this issue? What more information might you need from me? HP Pavilion 17-g133-cl

A:WiFi limited connectivity issues (Intel AC 3165)

(Edits: Add product and OS info, correct a few grammatical mistakes. Add the "Click 'OK'" step.) Alright, I've been all over the internet trying to fix this as I had the same experience. I've found a solution and I signed up on these forums just to post it. This problem has been a nightmare and I wanted to share. My machine is also the HP Pavilion 17 G1337-CL, which has the Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless ac3165. (I did make one hardware change by swapping out the HDD for an SSD) The problem that I had was produced by Windows power management system. When I went just a few minutes without accessing the internet it would close down. I could have a browser window open, but if I was not actively sending or receiving data, the connection would shut down. This is the two part solution (Windows 10): PART 1Right-click windows start menuSelect "Device Manager"Open the "Network adapters" drop downRight-click "Inter(R) Dual Band Wireless AC-3165"Select "Properties"Select "Power Management" tabUncheck "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power"Click "Ok" PART 2Right-click "RealTek PCIe FE Family Controller"Select "Properties"Select "Power Management" tabUncheck "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power"Click "Ok" Restart the computer (don't know if it is necessary, but I always restart) That fixed it for me. I had found Part 1 on a number of forums, but I had to figure out Part 2 on my own.

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:

Hello,
 
I am not certain what is relevant information, but this is an acer R7-571 with Windows 8.1. Though I can find networks when out and about, say at Starbucks or something, I cannot connect to them. It comes back with the response that the "connection is limited". This happens at friends' houses as well, using their password to join the network it always says connection limited and then I cannot get on the web.
 
I have tried all of the fixes that I could find thus far, but have had no success. I know, this is vague, I don't recall what I was doing, but through searching you can find some "solutions" but unfortunately they have not worked for me.
 
Currently I am trying to access a VPN using CiscoAnyconnect and this does not work either, is this connected to my other issue? The failure with the VPN is that "The VPN connection failed due to unsuccessful domain name resolution".
 
 
Thanks for any help, Terry

A:acer R7 Connectivity Issues - limited connectivity

Welcome,
To use VPN you must be known by the server you are trying to reach. I've used VPN to connect from home to my work network. I needed the information from our IT department to reach our servers and they had to grant me access so that the domain would allow me to play.
Have you done any configuration to your network card as far as DNS servers or any of the other parameters available?

So the Wireless Network Connection tab on my computer says it only has limited connectivity to my wifi. It was working perfectly fine just a few days ago. My mother's laptop connects just fine to our wifi. We tried taking the laptop out to my mom's work and it wouldn't connect to the wifi there either and also said it had limited connectivity while everyone else's devices worked. Why is this?

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

By format, do you mean you used the System Restore  partition to reinstall the operating system or used a HP installation disc to install the operating system?
 
If you did either of these you should have the proper network drivers you need.

I have recently installed a wifi dongle to use as an access point to share the same usb internet with a smartphone.

But now my first connection has limited or no connectivity... Can I share the same internet with them both?

If not how do I switch ics between them as I can't get my original local area connection back to using the ics?

I recently moved to a new apartment where I share an internet connection. Since I got here, I've been having repeated 'limited connectivity' errors on my WiFi connection. Whenever I get these errors, the troubleshooter 'fixes' the problem after resetting the adapter, but it continually comes back -- even more frequently when downloading or streaming something.

I've tried everything I can think of:

- Relocated the modem/router thinking there may be an issue of location
- Reset the router several times
- Updated the driver for the wireless adapter
- Changed the power settings for the computer
- Tweaked the wireless properties by enabling/disabling ipV6
- Reset winsock through command prompt

I have the Realtek PCle GBE Family Controller and running Windows 8 Pro. I really don't know what else to try. My tablet runs off the same connection just fine, but I simply cannot stay connected. Literally, there are times when I lose connectivity once every couple minutes, where other times it might go a couple hours. Thanks in advance for any assistance you folks can give!

Hi

Hope you can help.

I'm on holiday and booked a villa which had complimentary WIFI. I'm able to connect to the unsecured public network. The signal strength is good and I know I'm connected as the duration of time keeps increasing.

However when I try and access the internet I get the message that I have Limited Connectivity. I run the diagnostic tool and am told there is an issue with the IP address.

Does anyone have any idea how to resolve this as I desperately need my laptop so I can work whilst on holiday.

Any help would be gratefully received.

A:Limited Connectivity on Wifi connection

You may need to remove wireless profiles (see below) and reconnect to the secure network - it will also mean at home when you return you will need to re-enter your wireless security key

would you post back an ipconfig /all

I assume the villa complimentary WIFI is secure - have you entered the correct KEY - and do you know the type of security used ?

If possible download and install and run this xirrus program - and tell us the Name of the villa wireless

Hi there,
 
So I believe I have caught a trojan somewhere online that is impossible to get rid of.  What it basically does is at random times limit my internet connectivity to a very very reduced speed or remove it altogether.  Sometimes the yellow caution triangle appears over my wifi logo on my taskbar, but sometimes it limits my internet without that sign even appearing.  Internet becomes unusable, as I have to keep disconnecting and reconnecting to load whatever I'm doing.  
 
I tried a full factory system restore, the problem went away for a few days and conveniently came back.  I cannot get rid of it.  The only fix I know as of now is to connect directly to modems through ethernet cables, but I cannot do that everywhere I go (I travel a lot). Then again, this is something fairly new I tried, I don't know if it's a complete fix either (small sample size).
 
The thing is I've tried troubleshooting this problem before (going through hundreds of forums for similar problems), where the fix worked for a few days, but ultimately came back.  I've been very very careful with everything I do on my computer since, but the problem still came back.  I have Windows 10, and no antivirus program at the moment (used to have AVG, just haven't added one since my last factory restore).   
 
Any help would be appreciated.
 
Thanks

My wifi keeps dropping after 30 min and giving me a wifi limited connectivity problem: DNS server not responding upon troubleshooting the problem. I have an ASUS notebook 8 months old came pre-installed with Windows 8.1 and with Qualcomm Atheros Wifi Adapter and I use my neighbor's WLAN router to connect to wifi. Sometimes I use the library. My wife has a macbook and has never had a problem at either of these locations. So the router seems to be working perfectly with her computer. If my neighbor's wifi gives me limited signal, my wife keeps surfing away--very frustrating. I do however just use my Android wifi and this magically works when I am getting a limited through the neighbor's WLAN router. Although I have had this Android wifi also cut off on my PC; point being my computer loses wifi and my wife's macbook never does with all these exact same connections.

Before my factory refresh, I was only losing wifi maybe once a day; however I could often trapped after a limited wifi signal not be able to re-connect without multiple re-starts of my computer and DNS refreshes. I could surf online for 8-10 hours, then all of a sudden it wouldn't work. Now it is more like 30 minutes. Either way, there is a major problem with wifi limited connectivity and my neighbor's router. But as I said, my wife's macbook works perfectly and it is actually 9 years old. My PC is 8 months old and can't even connect to wifi. Whats wrong with windows 8.1?

Hello,  I wanted to clear some issues about my HP Pavilion laptop, I have searched online and most things havent worked for me, I have realised that my wifi usually goes to limited connectivity when either I take my laptop off my lap and place onto my bed (perhaps its because the fans cannot push the hot air out because they are being blocked?) and when I put my charger in. To temporarily fix this I have been going onto the "Network and Sharing Centre" and disabling and re-enabling my wifi, however sometimes I have noticed that I disable it and when I try to re-enable it stays as disabled so.. I hope someone from the support team can help me out, thanks.

I'mtrying to connect my sons desktop to our exisiting home wireless and the network is not assigning a network address so I am unable to connect to the internet. Can you help?

THis is a new computer I have built and this is the final piece I am trying to setup. New install of WIn XP Pro. I have two other PCs in the house that currently use wifi with no problems; a laptop and my own desktop, both pcs are using the same Linksys network cards and connecting to a linksys router. Cable modem hookup is through comcast.

I'm having a really annoying problem which is making my laptop almost unusable and a hassle to use. My wireless network adapter will suddenly get "limited connectivity", won't connect to the internet but will still get the router.

Disabling and enabling it will cause my computer to freeze, requiring a restart. The same with troubleshooting. The only thing which fixes this is a fresh reboot, however it then occurs again within the hour.

It's the latest driver. I keep uninstalling the driver and installing random ones from 2006, 2011 etc however the same problem persists.

Can anyone help me?

A:Wifi gets limited connectivity and freezes when troubleshooted

Very difficult to determine how to help you. The only information you have given us is that you have a laptop and network/freezing problems. We need some information about the system, the laptop model, and the laptop manufacturer.

A:Wifi gets limited connectivity and freezes when troubleshooted

the ipconfig /all tends to disagree with the errro message

do a tcp/ip reset - see below

whats the status of the driver - install the latest one from the PC manufacture - whats the make and model of the PC

does that pc work ok anywhere on a wireless network

Is this the only PC that disconnects - do other devices connected work OK - if so how are they connected to the router - wireless or wired

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the router and if you have a separate modem, the make and exact model of the modem.

Please make a note of the status of the lights on the modem and on the router when working normally - post that light status here.
Now when the internet disconnects make a note of the status of the lights for the modem and router here again. also note which have changed.

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, kaspersky or Mcafee or any free security suites like zonealarm, AVG , Webroot etc

Hi. I'm having issues with my modem. Anyways, the problem started when I purchased a Linksys Wrt54G router.

I was connecting to the internet using LAN/ethernet okay. I tried setting up a wifi connection in my home using the linksys wrt54g router. Everything was working fine until after two days when I suddenly can't connect to the internet on my linksys. I tried to directly connect my modem through the ethernet to check if the problem was with my ISP. LAN says limited or no connectivity. I tried plugging the modem through my laptop, I found out that my laptop can connect to the internet using ethernet so the problem was not with my ISP. I had to reset my linksys router and set it up all over again. Wifi connection was okay again.

After three days, I can't get any connection again. I tried directly connecting the modem again to my laptop to check but my laptop says limited or no connectivity. I tried connecting directly to the ethernet on my PC, it says limited or no connectivity again. I tried resetting the Linksys router again and set up my connection again (hoping against hope) and miraculously, I was able to connect.

Now there seems to be a problem with my LAN connections both on my PC and laptop and it seems that only my linksys router can communicate with my modem (everytime I had to do a reset). I tried reseting tcp stack, etc. But my LAN connection is still limited or no connectivity. Any help would be appreciated.

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.

I primarily use the notebook at my home & office network.
Home Network Router: Linksys WRT54G
Office Network Router: Beetel 450BXi (ADSL2+Modem)

The issue am facing is while am on to the network (mostly home network) suddenly it goes into limited connectivity & gets disconnected; while other PC's remain connected.

And then you have to either re-install the Wireless LAN driver or re-start numerous times.

This has been happening regularly. Pls assist in resolving the issue.

This is driving me mad. I've been through multiple forums/Intel's support site/Dell's support site/Microsoft's support site...and nobody seems to have a straight solution.

My new laptop came with Windows 8 pre-installed. I updated all drivers from Dell's website and installed the latest Intel PROSet WIFI drivers v15.6.0.0. I have not installed any anti-virus software and I don't see any installed by Dell. I'm not using any extra firewall software beyond the native windows one and I have not changed it;s configuration. Any software out there that can scan your PC for A-V and/or firewall issues?

None of my other devices have any connectivity issues at all. If I use an Ethernet cable the laptop works perfectly so it's definitely a WIFI issue.

I've disabled the Bluetooth adapter and the Ethernet adapter so that only the WIFI adapter is left enabled. I've tried disabling the Intel drivers and just using Windows to connect. I've tried using fixed IP address instead of DHCP. I've reset the router...basically I've tried all of the obvious things. I also tried the suggestions to use command line instruction to reset the IP stack/etc...but they had no effect.
I feel like it's the drivers themselves. Should I remove the Intel drivers completely?

A:Win8 Intel WIFI limited connectivity / invalid IP config

Welcome to the forum Rob.

Do the other systems have WiFi working because according to your ipconfig/all you aren't picking up anything from the router here.

When you reset the router, did you hold down the hidden button on the side for 30 seconds or did you just reboot the router?

Assuming the router is working and other wireless devices can connect.

Have you tried removing the preinstalled trial version A/V software which is typically preinstalled on your factory Dell system?

Depending on which one is installed you would need to use the special removal tool to get rid of it completely or problems will ensue.

It can also help to remove all the preinstalled bloatware from your new system. Decrapifier will locate those preinstalled programs so that they can safely be removed.

I'm having a really annoying problem which is making my laptop almost unusable and a hassle to use. After a while of my laptop being on, my wireless network adapter will suddenly get "limited connectivity", and won't connect to the internet.

Disabling and enabling the adapter will cause my computer to freeze, requiring a restart. The same with troubleshooting. The only thing which fixes this is a fresh reboot, however it always occurs again within the hour.

Sometimes the entire adapter will randomly just disable itself, and the computer will completely freeze, meaning I have to press the power on/off. Sometimes the adapter will just disappear from Device Manager. Searching for "plug and play" devices will cause it to freeze.

Apart from having to reboot, what also seems to work is disabling the wifi from PC Settings, putting the computer to sleep, then awaking it and turning wifi back on. I've had to do that 6 times whilst typing this post.

I've tried flushing my dns, registering it, renewing and releasing. Assigning a static DNS address. All those things. Though I may have done them wrong.

Try reseating the wireless adapter

If the adapter is easily accessible, usually through a cover on the bottom of the laptop.
Remove and reinsert it carefully and firmly to make sure it is not loose.
Then remove and carefully and firmly replace it several times to cure any possible looseness or corrosion.
At the same time check to make sure the antenna leads are securely attached.
Note: This is not taking the machine apart. We do not recommend removing the keyboard when that is necessary to find the wireless.

Disable encryption and MAC Address filtering on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

If successful with the unsecured by not with secured, what kind of encryption is used?

I connect to internet via Maxom BP3-EXT Telstra modem. The modem is connected to the Laptop, so internet sharing is done via laptop to my desktop via a cross-over cable.

Till yesterday everything was smooth and running perfect. I could access internet on both ubantu as well as vista from my desktop.

However since morning, I am having no connectivity on the desktop, and the message I get for my LAN is limited connectivity.

this is my whole ipconfig details:

I'm running Vista Home Premium SP2 (all the latest updates and drivers) x64 on a 2.2ghz amd dual core with 4 gb RAM. Recently I had a power surge hit my home and kill my built-in ethernet adapter (I have everything plugged into surge protectors ... EXCEPT the cable that runs to my cable modem, which was also fried). To my knowledge the nic in my laptop is solder to the motherboard, so replacing it would very costly. I decided to purchase an ASIX AX88772 Fast USB 2.0 to Ethernet Adapter. It works perfectly for 24-48 hours (my laptop is running 24/7). However, this is where the problem starts...

Seemingly randomly I will see that my network icon is now showing limited connectivity (even though my usb adapter is still flashing send/rec and my cable modem still has the PC light on ... however the cable modem is no longer flashing the send/rec leds). When I try to repair the connection it always fails. If I try to disable then enable the connection explorer.exe (process that manages network and sharing center) crashes (not responding and has to be killed and then rerun) even if I try this on a different connection (ie my old built in nic, or my wifi). Also, once this happens I am no longer able to connect to ANY networks (via wifi), windows will not locate ANY available wifi networks to connect to (even though there are over 8 in my area). Another baffling symptom is that if I try to shut down/restart/Log off it sits at the restart/shut down/log off screen and never actually com... Read more

Ok, first of all I know I can call AT&T to walk me thru this one, BUT! I've been on hold too long, my cell battery has died on me, etc, etc, and there comes a time when we get frustrated and give that method a rest! Since I've had such awesome luck from all the suggestions & tips I get on this site, I figured I'd try posting while I let off steam with some housecleaning

Basically, these are the facts of my issue.......
- I switched from Comcast to AT&T, stated I have 2 laptops (1 wired, 1 wireless). I recv'd my modem/router with 4 ethernet ports and wireless capability, and set it up in my bedroom cus that's where I work.
- I initiated the setup with my business laptop (in my room) via ethernet, and it "connects fine".
- I then set up the wireless laptop (while in my room) then took it back to the living room where it belongs, and it "picks up signal plus connects fine".
- However... I have a desktop in the living room which I tried to connect via one of those long ethernet cables, but I only get "Limited Connectivity". But just for the record, when I had Comcast service, this desktop was working swell and in fact has always been "my favorite pc" cus it never has issues!! Inclusively, the long ethernet cable was the one I used to connect from the Comcast router in the living room all the way to my business laptop in the bedroom, and I recv'd excellent connectivity! But for some reason, it doe... Read more

Before I begin, I'd like to note that I'm not incredibly experienced when it comes to computers, and the information I give you may not be thorough enough. If that is the case, please ask for any extra necessary information and how to get it, if you'd so please. Thanks.

I bought a Dell Inspiron 1545 December 19th of last year, with Windows 7 Home Premium. I didn't get an opportunity to use the internet on it until after Christmas, I connected wirelessly to a linksys router with no problems. After using it for a few hours, I was disconnected and the router would not appear on my search. I then hardwired my computer with an ethernet cable to get it to work, with no problems. I then stayed a week at a resort, in which I could select connections but I'd only get limited connectivity on every one. Once again, I was able to hardwire it.

I'm back at school and I'm still unable to get a connection without limited connectivity. I've tried several different places to try to connect, all giving me limited connectivity.

I'm not sure how I successfully used wireless for a few hours then for it to stop working altogether, but I'm in desperate need for it to be fixed.

Thanks for your time everyone and as I said, if you need more info, please ask.

Hello,

I am having difficulties with establishing an internet connection on my pc(laptop).
I have IPTV. The TV works fine, but in the right hand side of the screen there appears a message:"Limited Access or no connectivity...".

My laptop has windows 7. Wheter I try to connect via wireless, or ethernet cable, I get the message: "Limited Access or no connectivity...". Both, Tv and Laptop are connected to Internet through a HG658 Huawei Router( 2 of the 4 lan ports are pre-configured by the ISP to work with TV's; the other 2 are for connecting computers.)

I am asking you, if the problem might be related with the router, or with my ISP.

I must mention that I, for some unknown reason, cannot access the router's default IP adrress("The page cannot be displayed" - in IE9. ")
My IP is static. Setting the DHCP mode to off(disabled) could somehow be causing these problems?

Please help me find the source of this headache...(I am now posting from a neighbour's computer).
Thanks in advance.

It sounds as if your router is bad and you should give your ISP a call for a tech visit.

Greetings. Yesterday, my router started to act up and I continued to connect fine, but with limited connectivity on every device. Since then I have tried a number of things, including the obvious choices like hard resets and rebooting on both ends. After a while, the connection returned to normal on my other devices, namely an iPhone, Kindle, and Playstation 3. The router is a Netgear Wireless-G WGR614 v9. All display lights are green, including the wireless signal, but the internet one is orange. I have also tried disabling my Kaspersky antivirus software. However, my Windows 7 Asus G73jh computer still seems to be experiencing some issues. Namely, it will alternate between connected with internet access and limited connectivity; with either profile it does not receive or send data. I got a message a few days ago concerning an ip conflict, but I was wondering if perhaps it would fix itself as it and other devices are set to automatically choose IP addresses. I have tried some command prompt fixes, namely ipconfig /all and renewing the dns, but with little success. I have noted that logs tend to give back a "media disconnected" message too. Currently I am connected using a wired ethernet connection, so it doesn't appear to be an ISP problem. Here is the ipconfig when connected via wireless, as well other general info. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey everyone. I need some serious help, especially since I use my internet to make a living.

I recently installed some windows updates on my computer. I have a HP Pavillion dv6 with Windows Vista. After I installed the updates and rebooted the computer, the internet stopped working. It keeps saying "Connected with Limited Access". When I disconnect, and then reconnect, it says it is taking too long and eventually does not connect. Diagnosing the problem does nothing.

When I go to view the status of the connection, it tells me that the IPv4 and IPv6 connections are Not Connected. I have tried unchecking those specific drivers found on the adapter properties, as well as some command prompt scripts I found on google, and nothing seems to suffice. I would like to avoid spending tons of money to get this fixed. I know there are ways to fix this, I just havent found them yet.

Please help? (If you give me directions, please spell them out in a way I can understand them. I am pretty well versed with basic computer issues, but some of the other stuff I have read online has gotten me clueless. Thank you!)

Also, when I run ipconfig/all on my command prompt, this is what I get:

Thats all I got. Most people get a ton of other stuff, but for some reason, nothing else shows up. Maybe that will help.

Also, my adapter is a Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN.

Dear users I recently upgraded from vista home to vista ultimate and my pc is connecting to the wireless access point but I have limited connectivity is there a solution here that will fix this. I read all kinds of solutions that says install vista sp2 service pack that still has not resolved the issue. I have also tried to disable the DHCP broadcast flag using fix it for me in Microsoft support but that does not work either. The strange thing is my pc connects wirelessly no problem in other business locations but will not connect to my home router. Before I upgraded to ultimate the pc was connecting fine.

A:Limited connectivity to wireless access point

OK,

Delete the troublesome wireless connection & create a new one to the same location on your new windows system.

I would always advise upgrading Windows the system to the latest version service packs etc. (NOT Microsoft recommended drivers for third party devices though, OK for MS devices).

If this is still a problem post back.

Hey everyone~ I'm Rosely and around 3 or 4 months ago a purchased a Windows 8 32bit Asus Vivobook (S400CA-DH51T). Everything seems to work great other than, every once in a while, (sometimes many times a day, sometimes once a day, sometimes even less than that) my internet connection will switch to "Limited" and i'm not able to visit any sites by their DNS addresses. I can access Google when this happens by putting in http://64.15.120.233/ and the error i receive when i try to visit a webpage is something along the lines of "DNS Look-up Failed" so it appears to be a problem with the DNS. Disconnecting from wifi and reconnecting usually fixes the problem, if that information helps. I haven't used the computer anywhere else enough to know if it happens on different connections than my home network, so i only know that it happens here.

Any help I can get is much appreciated~<3

And that's all. Any help would be appreciated. Sorry for my bad English as English not my native tongue.

Alright, I've been messing with this problem all weekend and I'm out of ideas. Any and all suggestions would be most appreciated.

I have recently bought a new computer that came with Vista installed. I've been installing all my old USB attachments so I can get everything up and running, but I've hit a road block with my wireless access point.

It is not a brand name AP, just one I bought off of Ebay from Hong Kong, but it worked very well on XP. It comes with the ZDwlan utility for managing the network, which worked fine on XP.

My first problem was getting the program and the right driver installed in Vista. I was able to do this with help from other sites around the web. But no one has covered what I need to do now that the hardware is working in order to get Vista to recognize the connection!

I can use the ZDwlan utility to set up the access point and windows detects that there is a wireless connection, but it is not identifying the SSID. It just shows "unidentified connection" No Default Gateway or DNS servers are listed under Details in Network and Sharing for t he wireless. I turned off Vista's wireless configuration system because it was blocking the ZDwlan program.

All I want to do is get Vista to recognize the wireless connection I'm trying to set up and share the internet from my cable modem connected to the computer via USB with the wireless device/program so I can connect my game consoles, etc over wireless. My Nintendo D... Read more

Try shutting down your computer, then power down your modem/router wait 30 seconds and turn it back on.

Hello,
 
Recently I have been experiencing recurring internet connectivity issues. Roughly every 30 minutes, my laptop will report limited connectivity to my home's wireless network and I will lose internet access. Disconnecting and reconnecting to the wireless network will allow me to temporarily regain internet access (up until my computer inevitably loses its internet connection again due to the limited connectivity issue). This issue appeared suddenly, but I suspect it might be due to a virus of some kind (as I have neither installed any software recently nor have I tampered with my computer's internet settings). I also believe the wireless network is fully functional as I am able to access internet at all times using other computers and wifi devices (even when my laptop is reporting limited connectivity). I ran a Norton 360 Full System Scan and a Malwarebytes Anti-malware scan but to no avail.
 
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello guys, I am using a Dell Inspiron 1545,with Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit OS.I was using the hotel wi-fi network in which I am residing in currently .Everything was hunky dory for a week , when all of a sudden I could not connect to the wi-fi network in my hotel,I keep getting either a Limited connectivity message with a yellow triangle on the wi-fi icon or a Local only access. I searched everywhere and tried all possible things like :

- Changed the Dhcp flag in the windows registry as directed on the microsoft site.
- reset the wincsock using " netsf winsock reset".
- Disabled Ipv6 for the network in the "Properties tab".

Its highly pissing off as my friend staying in the same hotel with a HP laptop running Vista Home Premium is able to connect to the same wi-fi network without any issues.

Can anyone please help me out with this , its really irritating !

Thanks in advance.

A:Windows Vista Local Access only or Limited Connectivity

Guys call it my lucky charm or whatever , the day I posted my query on this forum , I was myself able to figure out the solution.

I just changed the registry setting field DhcpIPAddress to an IP Address that was from a Spool of IP addresses that was functioning correctly. I checked my friends IP on his laptop that was able to connect to the same network and set the IP Address in the DhcpIPAddress field to the next IP (my friends IP + 1) . After that I also reset my winsock settings with the command. "netsh winsock reset" to run this command , you need to open command prompt in the administrator mode. But I am not sure whether this contributed to solving the problem. I guess changing the DhcpIPAddress field was enough.

Do the above, and restart your machine, hopefully it should work fine.

Let me know if you need anyone needs help. All the best !!!!

Hi all,
I have an Acer Aspire 3680 with atheros wireless lan on a vista operating system.
Recently I moved and thus switched my internet carrier from a linksys wireless router on comcast to a verizon fios wireless router.
Ever since this switch, I have been unable to access the internet wirelessly for any more than 3-4 minutes before the signal turns off.
It is always on "local only" access or "limited connectivity".

I have numerous wireless devices running on my network, however my laptop is the only hardware that is having problems with my new network.

Can anyone tell me what is going on and how I can fix this?

Dear Sir,

Randomly a dreaded yellow exclamation mark on the wifi and then its seen written, No internet connetivity and Limited Access. And then when I run troubleshoot problem, the laptop hangs up and there is no other option then to restart the laptop. I have been facing this issue since mid July and have tried everything under the sun. I am not a tech savy person but still I tried my best and did the following:

- Deleting and Readding wifi network
- Even formatted my computer
- Replaced the router for broadband wifi
- Did power management for battery, unchecked the icon which automatically switches off the wifi in order to save power.

Now I am tired, please help me, please help sir if there is anything I can do.

A:Limited access/ No connectivity problem, windows 7, HP laptop.

Answer Match 69.3%

Hi, I've been away camping for a couple of weeks and now that I'm back my desktop computer no longer connects to the internet. As I state in the title, however; the signal strength says it's "very good".

I've tried removing the connection and re-adding it, I've tried moving the wireless USB/removing and potential disturbances, but to no avail.

Any help would be much appreciated!
 

A:Signal strength: Very good, Access: Limited connectivity

Turn off the Modem
Turn off the Router
Turn off the PC
Turn off all network gear

Do this for 30 seconds.

Then slowly turn on the modem (DSL or Cable)
Then the router
Any switches
Then the PC
Then the rest of your network.

I have had this problem for years (4 years to be exact). So how do I fix that:Basically it says:"State of the connectionLimited or no connectivityYou might not be able to access the Internet or some network resources.This problem happens because the network did not attribute an address to the computer."

A:This connection has limited or no connectivity. You might not be able to access the Internet or some network resources.

Can you still access internet?
It appears that your ISP is not running a DHCP server. DHCP allows you to request an IP address and DNS server addresses automatically. So, you may have to manually set the IP address and DNS server addresses.

Your wireless NIC has DHCP enabled but it's not getting an IP address from your Netgear router. The IP address you have, 169.254.38.27, is from a ranger called APIPA. You cannot surf the Web with an APIPA address. You also have no default gateway defined (which should be your router's IP address), and I'm not sure why there's all the IPv6 stuff in there.

It looks like you need to configure your Netgear router with a) a unique IP address (try 192.168.1.1) an... Read more

Hi folks,

Been having a problem for a while with an acer aspire 5612 laptop in that whilst I can connect to our wireless network, I can't connect to the internet. It says I've got local only access. I've tried to follow the steps on previous threads about this, but to no avail. I'm using Vista, have re-installed Kaspersky anti-virus 2010, uninstalled Norton Internet security and set windows firewall to be the firewall.

After renewing the winsock settings and restarting, I noticed that I had no default gateway on the wifi settings, and thought that might be the reason behind this all not working, so I manually set the ip and dns ipv4 settings for that wireless network (copying them from the LAN settings that worked). But that hasn't fixed the problem, hence posting here.

Here's the ipconfig/all with a LAN connection that works and a wireless connection that doesn't.

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.

Router: Telus VSG1432
Firmware: 1.10(VFA.0)b8
Channel: 6
Bandwidth: 20MHz
802.11x: b/g/n mixed.

Network 1: Mixed WPA/WPA2 PSK
Network 2: WPA2 PSK
Network 3: WEP

My first issue is that 4 of my 5 devices (2 laptops, PC, android phone) can only connect to the WEP network. When attempting to connect to the other two, it takes longer than usual then says "Can't connect to this network" and the troubleshooter isn't helpful.

My second issue is that my 5th device, a Microsoft Surface RT, only connects to the WEP network, but only in limited connection mode.

My mobile devices connect and work fine with other networks, so I'm assuming it's something wrong with my router but the firmware is up to date (automatically check) and I didn't find any other posts with issues from this router. I apologize that information about my situation is sorely lacking and if someone could tell me what other information I need to offer to work towards a possible solution, that would be swell.

SOme days I can connect no problem with great speeds and other times it wont connect at all. It does show that I have (GOOD) signal to the wireless router, so maybe its something with the modem??? It goes day by day and I can not pinpoint exactly why this issue occurs so randomly.
Perhaps you have come across this trouble before.

 Hi, First of all I would like to say thanks to anyone who helps me with this problem, I am new to this forum and am not great at working computers, so I stuggle to find a solution to this problem. I bought a HP Envy 15-ah150sa 15.6'' less than 2 weeks ago and from day 2 of owning it I experienced connectivity issues. My wifi disconnects very frequently, whether there is strong or weak wifi. This involves the little yellow exclamation mark on the bottom right hand corner. Attached is a photo of what often comes up when I click 'troubleshot'. Sometimes it does connect but it often disconnects after 2 minutes, so it can connect (after going on troubleshoot constantly) but it drops fairly quickly. I also rebooted the computer and re-installed windows 10, but the problem persists. I have tried to show PC world the problem, but it does not seem to happen when I am in front of the technician. Thank you Louis

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello everyone!

I am literally at the end of the road here, I have read so many forum posts and taken so many pieces of advice but nothing seems to be working.

I am unable to connect to the internet on my desktop PC despite the fact it is pretty much next to my router and I am using a brand new wireless adapter.

I recently reformatted my old desktop PC, I installed some new RAM and added an additional Hard Disk.

I reinstalled windows XP professional with sp2.

I have just purchased the TP-LINK NANO USB ADAPTER (literally the newest model), I installed the drivers and software as stipulated on the box and the adapter appeared to work initially (albeit a little intermittently). I was able to download all of my audio and graphics drivers and able to download XP sp3 off the microsoft website and install it.

Since installing SP3 (and .NET framework 3.5) the wireless adapter essentially refuses to connect... a problem I have had so many times when trying to add wireless adapters on XP systems.

The PC finds my router, and either spends five minutes attempting to 'acquire network address' or connects but doesn't display anything on the screen when I open one of the browsers.

Running various tests and diagnostics, it seems like the PC cannot renew it's IP address?

Computer is currently showing the 'limited or no connectivity' icon despite being 'connected'.

Here's what I've tried:..taken it to other locations and it connects no problem to other wifi networks...run iolo system mechanic to look for viruses..clear...upgraded from windows 7 to 10... got a new internet modem from my isp...set up a new network on my wifi router (airport extreme)...tried a new wifi router...uninstalled McAfee and now using Windows Defender instead...I seem to get some success when I hard wire it in to the network, surf for a bit, then shut down laptop and reset my modem/router and I can get wifi to work for an evening. Usually by the next morning, it's not working again.I really don't want to get a new computer..help me!thanks
