    What should I do if I get Limited connectivity in my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit OS? How to fix this problem?

    I am trying to connect to my local Wi-Fi network with my Windows 7 Ultimate OS but whenever I do that I get the error as “Limited connectivity”. Can you tell me how to fix this problem? It was working fine in Windows XP but right after upgrading to Windows 7 OS I am facing this type of problems.

    You will have to install Windows 7 OS of 32-bit to get full connectivity of Wi-Fi Network.

    64-bit generally experiences this problem of Limited Connectivity.

    All the PC's generally have Windows 32-bit OS installed in them.

    That's why all Windows 32-bit OS are not compatible with Windows 64-bit OS Wi-fi Network.

    You are facing this problem because you have installed 64-bit OS in your PC.

    Just install 32-bit OS and your problem would be removed.

    Are you able to connect to the internet? If yes, you may disable the error message

    The error message can be caused by several things. This error message can also be displayed when, in fact, you are already connected to the Internet. If that is the case, you can safely ignore the error message.

    To disable the error message, follow these steps.
    1. Open network connections from control panel.
    2. Double-click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties.
    3. In the General tab, click to clear the Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity check box.
    4. Click OK, and then click Close.
    Also, I suggest you to run the networking troubleshooter and check the result -

    You may also check the status of the wireless network card driver/adapter and try updating the driver if needed.
    Follow the steps to check for the Network Adapter in the device manager:
    1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    2. Click System and Maintenance, click System, and then click Device Manager.
      Note: If Control Panel is in Classic View, double-click System, and then click Device Manager.
      If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
    3. In Network Adapter, expand Network Adapter, right-click the devices listed. Here you will get the device listed.
      Check if you have any exclamation or cross marks alongside the devices listed. If you do have then there is issue with the adapter installed.
    Refer to the below mentioned link to update the drivers manually from the manufacturer website -

    Hope this helps. Let us know the results.
    Thanks

    Hey friend,
    Actually there is nothing wrong with the windows 7 so dont worry about this. To solve your problem follow these steps:-

    -First go to network and sharing center.
    -here you select your network adapter and go to properties.
    -In properties go to IPv4 settings.
    Here check your Ip address , Subnet mask, Default gateway and DNS and enter the correct if you found any problem there and try to use internet again.

    IF the above procedure not helps then now follow these steps:-
    1)ping your gateway (if its not replying then your gateway (router) is not working properly)
    2)ping DNS (if DNS is not working then there is problem with the service provider).
    In these two case call you service provider they will solve your problem.
