Windows 10 WIFI "Limited connectivity" error

Today I upgraded to Windows 10 and since I have I've had issues with the WIFI going "limited connectivity". I rebooted it and it would then work but eventually quit, turned the WIFI off, then back on and it would then work then eventually quit again. This issue has gotten out of hand. I've checked the version of the driver and it's up to date. Numerous people have had this problem so maybe this is a sign that Microsoft has an issue on their hands? I NEVER had this issue with Windows 7. There were other issues, but this was not one of them.

Hi Matthew,

Welcome to Microsoft Community.

Since you did not have an issue with Windows 7. The better we could do here is install the drivers in Compatibility mode for Windows 7.

Follow the steps to install the drivers in Compatibility mode:

  • Download the latest drivers of Windows 7.
  • Right click on them click on properties
  • Select Compatibility tab
  • Check Run this program in compatibility box
  • Select Windows 7 
  • Click Apply and OK.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Where do I find the drivers at, and how would I know what driver was for my Wifi adapter?

I was able to get rid of the issue but deleting all the stored wifi networks under ''Manage Wifi Settings''  by clicking on ''Forget'' and then re-registering the network again.

I'm having same problem with Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 in a Dell laptop N5110. But, this problem only happens when I'm using Chrome or Edge to access the sites, and I need to disconnect and connect again. For example, there's no problem with online games.

If you have bit defender total security installed this may help. I had the same problem. Upgraded from win 8 to win 10. Not sure if this helps but after raging for hours at this problem I found out from another windows forum it was Bit defender Total Security causing the problem. Under the "Firewall" settings (protection > firewall) disable the option "Block Internet Connection Sharing". It should work afterwards.

Hi,

References to Vista also apply to Windows 7. Windows 8, and Windows 10.

Your router would be suspect here, have you updated its firmware as a possible
solution? And I would update your WiFi drivers on the computers. How far are
you positioned from the router? Are there obstructions in the way?

Try actually updating your driver :.

Control Panel - Network - write down make and model of Wifi - double click
on it - driver's tab - write down version - click Update Driver (may not do
anything as MS is far behind certifying drivers). Then Right Click on Wifi
Device and UNINSTALL - Reboot - this will refresh the driver stack.

Then check the System/Motherboard Maker's Site and that of the actual device
maker (such a RealTek, Broadcom, or Atheros) for even newer drivers.

Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites.
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/driverssupport/ht/driverdlmfgr.htm

Download - SAVE - go to where you put it - Right Click - RUN AS ADMIN.

You can download several at once however reboot after you install each one.

After looking at the System Maker's you can check Device Maker's for even
newer versions. (The ones from System maker become your fallbacks).
