    Solve the issue ‘Limited Connectivity’ in Windows 8

    After Windows 8 Successfully completed booting up, my Internet stops Working. It gives a message as ‘Limited Connectivity’. What is it actually? I do not understand what it might be. Please, anyone let me know what it is and how to get off from it.

    I have also faced this problem and this video helps me a lot


    Otherwise,you can follow these steps :-

    (1) Update the router's firmware to latest, then after, reset it to factory defaults. Then, change the channel to a different one than it is currently set at.

    (2) Install the lan and wireless drivers

    If the wireless is Intel, install the latest driver from their site instead.

    (3) Uninstall any 3rd party security suite or firewall, if installed. Best to do in safe mode with the special tool for the specific product.

    (4) If not using Homegroup to share, disable IPv6 for the wireless adapter and also disable the IP
    Helper service.
