Windows 10 WIFI Issue - Limited Connection RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1.

    My WiFi works perfectly for one week and now all of a sudden it starts showing Limited Connection.

    Now I am not able to use my WIFI as it shows most of the time as Limited Connection.

    Can somebody guide me. What is wrong with Windows 10 installation.

    Did the other device connect to the wifi work well?
    If all the device won`t work, we should troubleshoot the router issue.

    If only this specific machine won`t work, please take the following steps to have a check.
    1.Reinstall the wireless network adapter driver from the device manager.
    2.Run the built-in troubleshoot tool to have a diagnostic.
    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting\All Categories\Network Adapter
    3.Run the following command line to reset TCP/IP stack.
    ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
    nbtstat -RR (release and refesh NetBIOS names)
    netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
    netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)
    Reboot

    Best regards

    Me too in my Hyper-V VM (for vEthernet running on host which has Wi-Fi).  Except I think it was a security update that did it.  The same way a security update did it to me when the host was W8.1.2. 

    Depending on your security settings the troubleshooters are actually unhelpful, e.g. sabotaging potential workarounds.  One change which seems to be helping me for my host is secpol.msc to allow Private as the location of my Wi-Fi and then depend on the firewall in my modem for its public facing security.
