Limited access wifi, no Internet on wifi

Q: Limited access wifi, no Internet on wifi

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?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My wifi connection says "Limited" or no internet access. I have tried all the network troubleshooting included in Microsoft, went to device manager and update my wifi adapter; update my bios and chipset, restored my laptop to factory settings, and installed all the drivers for my unit. I have tried to connect my Laptop to wifi with my LAN cable connected to my notebook and it connects but whenever I disconnect to LAN cable, my Wifi connection will be LIMITED again. Other scenario, I tried to connect it to LAN again and same thing happen that it connected to wifi, but that time my wifi stays to be connected as long as I stay right beside my router but eventually it drops. Same things happen when I did it again. I tried to move a lil' bit far to my router, my wifi signal is Full or strong but it goes LIMITED. Other devices like cellphones and even my brother's laptop can easily connect to wifi. What should I do next? Please Help!

So I got a new router yesterday to replace the old one, and I've been working on it for a long time. But I can't seem to figure out why there isn't any internet connection. The new WiFi Router (D-Link DR-842) Shows it is connected to the internet (green light) but in the setup page, it says disconnected. Could the PPPoE details be causing this? As far as I know everything is correctly set up except for the internet part.

I have been trying for some time to accomplish the title result. I'm not techie enough to do it.

What I want is to be able to use a Tablet to read in the rear of my home (which is out of range for incoming wifi signal.)

If I can set up the computer to do this, I will cable connect to a router in that area.
I have two computers and could use either.

1.a PC running XP (should update to windows 8.1, but have never bothered to do that, since XP works just fine. (I had this computer sharing to the router, when I had DSL internet connection, using Windows wizard to set it up) Couldn't get it to work when I switched to WIFI internet access) I could switch to win 7 or 8.1 if that would help.

2. a Lap Top running WIN 8.1,

Any help is appreciated.

A:Internet access via WIFI and share WIFI via second router

Due to the age of XP this is not the best option for what you want to do

Either windows 7 or 8.1 have access to Internet connection sharing (ICS) built in

To use ICS you need at least two connections to the local LAN, these can be any mix of wifi or Ethernet.

As you have a laptop you likely already have a system to use for this

There is a tutorial explaining the basics ... and more on this site

Check it out and post back if you have any issues

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.

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

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...

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 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!

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.

When on wifi, my connection keeps failing. If I hover over the wifi bars in the bottom right, it says "limited access." I can simply disconnect and reconnect and it will be okay for maybe a few minutes up to a couple of hours, but it always falls out again. I've tried the windows troubleshooting thing, and it always says that it can't connect to the default gateway. It "repairs" the problem, and again I am able to connect for a few minutes or longer, but it always fails again. I've tried updating the driver for the wifi adapter, and that didn't solve it. I've tried uninstalling the wifi adapter completely and reinstalling it, and that didn't solve it. There isn't anything in particular that seems to be causing the problem to occur; it seems random. Everything works fine when I'm connected via ethernet. My other wireless devices work fine on my wifi router. Any suggestions?

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 have the following situation. I'm running Dell Latitude D630 with Windows 7. Using built-in WiFi, at home connecting to Router from AT&T UVerse

Everything worked fine for months. Now I have the following situation. It finds the WiFi, and connects, but with only "limited access". The network status says:
Limited Access
IPv4 Connectivity: No network access
IPv6 Connectivity: No network access
Media State: Enabled

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.

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.

Having a bit of an issue with my home WiFi with a BT Homehub type A. At random intervals I'll get limited access and not be able to use the internet. This is quickly resolved by disconnecting and reconnecting to the WiFi. I thought I'd fixed the issue by doing the following commands:

netsh winsock reset
netsh int ip reset reset.log hit

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!

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.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I cannot seem to get through the limited access on my WIFI network. I have a Ralink RT5390R 802.11 WIFI card, a Comcast Cable Modem & network. Laptop Pavilion DV7 connects to other wireless networks and other devices connect to the Comcast Modem no problems. I have disconnect Norton's Security, shut off Comcast Modem Security, updated driver and reinstalled but nothing has worked. I have read that Ralink RT5390R is incompatible with the Comcast modem but I just want to make sure I didn't miss anything. Truly stumped on this. I have pasted IPConfig /all below with Rizzo being my SSID. I am currently connected through an Ethernet cable to my cable modem while connected wirelessly to Rizzo with limited connection. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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?

A:Limited access to wifi and more for unknown reason (laptop)

Ok, now the Internet has fully stopped working and some apps crash when opened.

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.

Sometimes when I'm using the internet, most frequently when I'm using a lot of resources, ie torrenting large files, my wifi will stop working, and eventually go limited. This is always fixed by turning my wifi off and on. I've updated all my network card drivers and have disabled the power management option that allows my computer to turn off the adapter, what other solutions are there to this problem? Adapter is a ralink rt3290 and I think it might be a problem with this adapter specifically, if anybody could help me here that would be awesome

A:Wifi keeps going limited, fixed by turning wifi off and on

Tried to help someone here awhile back with that same adapter, don't know if they ever got it working. A search yields all kinds of problems with it. About all I can say is try different drivers, older, newer, whatever you can find.

That is usually caused by a router, or failing networking adapter.
