Acer Switch 10 :: Internet Connection States Limited Connectivity For No Reason
Feb 15, 2015
Since getting my Acer switch 10 i have suffered limited connectivity issues on the device, this then states there are no access points available and then will not resolve itself until i restart the device. This happens on different routers and ISP's and i have updated the drivers from Acer support site with no avail. the issues happens about one a week to fortnightly and i have tried several reinstalls but nothing changes.
Just bought an Acer Aspire E15 and have been setting it up today and managed to get connected to the internet through the wi-fi however I have noticed that the wifi keeps dropping and leaves me with nothing and then I have to manually go in and select the router again. This is happening all the time, I am on the internet for no longer than 2 mins before I get the unable to access the network. There is no problem with the network it just seems to be my new laptop. I looked this up and was told to change the power management settings and did so and am still have the same problem. I also updated the driver and again am still having the problem. Also tried ipconfig /flushdns and again the problem persists!
I am having problems with my Wifi on my HP Pavilion Notebook 15 (Product number: G2H02PA#ACJ)I Have Windows 8.1 and as well as Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter.My Wifi Connection Is Showing LIMITED Connectivity. I have already complained about my problem on HP Phone Support. But i did not get any solution for my problem. Technician has re-installed wifi driver and Bios but did not get any solution. Customer Support has sent me some links for driver update but did not got any solution again.I've tried installing various versions of Ralink WLAN Adapter Drivers!. Still no success!I am writing this post from my other laptop as my wifi router is working properly on other devices!
My network card is on the fritz, to put it simply. I randomly lose internet access, and my network connection is listed as "Limited Access". Sometimes turning off the adapter and turning it back on solves the problem, but sometimes I need to do a full reboot. My system is the only one affected, so I know its not the router. I have already viewed the similar threads and tried the methods advised with no success.
So far I have: -Updated my drivers -Disabled Broadcom Bluetooth service at startup -Disabled Hybrid Sleep -Told Windows not to shut the network card off.
I did a System Refresh last week and that's when the problem started.
I have an ideapad z500 which I'm happy for, but it annoys me that when 'm at my college I can't properly connect to the wi-fi the school has. When I connect, I'm on for usually about half an hour, but then I get the "limited connection" yellow triangle and I have to deactivate the networkcard before I can get a normal connection.
Other times I simply just can't connect, it tries but it fails. When it does, I have to reboot the computer before it succeeds, and that's no good when you are working on a project. At home i have no problems, it works nicely.
Also, how to enable the WiDi on the z500.
My PC is running Win 8 with the Intel Centrino n2230, Intel 3rd. gen i7 (3632qm)
I have an Ideapad Y510 that has Vista and I'm having a problem connecting to the internet. I have other computers running in the house (this one I'm now typing on) so my internet is working correctly just not on my laptop. The laptop was working and connecting but something happened and now it says that I have limited access to the internet.
I read that it may not be getting an IP address assigned to it. I called my internet provider and they ran through their troubleshooting steps but figured it was in the computer. I don't know if the driver has been corrupted. I got the software CD that came with it and tried to load it again but it didn't work (not sure if I did it correctly).
I have been having some issues with the WiFi lately. Whenever i turn on the laptop, the internet conection is limited. i have to run the Windows troubleshooting every time i turn on my laptop to fix this.
I updated the Wifi drivers through Windows Update but the problem persist. What can i do to fix this?
I am having a Acer E1-571 windows 8 laptop. Since after a recent upgradation to windows 8.1 my wifi is showing limited connectivity. But other devices connected to this router (D-Link) is having internet. My wireless adapter is Broadcom 802.11 adapter.
Following are the laptop configuration: Quick link:
Intel Core i7-4510U 2GHz Processor1TB Hybrid HDD8GB DDR3L 1600 Memory15.6" 1920x1080 LED Glossy WedgeIntel HD Graphics 5000Bluetooth 4.0Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160DVD Recordable (Dual Layer)4-Cell Lithium-Ion BatteryWindows 8.1 (64-Bit)Initial setup went well. After 4 hours or so while surfing webpages, suddenly it started showing no internet connection and asked to reload webpages. So I looked at the wireless network icon on the bottom right corner which showed full bars. A few seconds later a yellow colored triangle with exclamation mark appeared on the network icon showing no internet and limited internet.
After turning the wifi off and back on the internet connects and works for few hours. After few hours, it lost internet connectivity again with the same above symptoms. I have this laptop now for 3 days and in past 3 days I had this problem at least 25 times.
I am having problems with my Wifi on my HP DV6 7011TX (Product Number: B0P39PA#ACJ)I updated from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 and started facing Wifi problems. Initially on starting laptop, Wifi get connected automatically.. But after 5-10 minutes it shows LIMITED Connectivity.When I turn ON Flight mode and then OFF it, it gets back to full connection.But, after sometime it goes back to LIMITED. This keeps on happening.I've tried installing various versions of Broadcom & Intel WLAN Adapter Drivers!. Still no success!I called HP Support but, they told me that they can't do anything as I'm on Windows 8.1. They said me to rollback to Windows 8 and I don't want to do so. "Download over metered connections" is also set ON... (While writing this post Wifi went into limited connectivity once!)
I have an HP 10 S Notebook and I will lose wireless internet connectivity after I've been online for a while. It will show as "limited" and when I click to reconnect it shows I have no internet available. I've run the diagnostics when that has happened and it tells me there is an issue with the wireless card. I can shut the computer down and restart then it's working fine. This has been happening about once a day.
I am having problems with my Wifi on my HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15 (Product number: D2H26EA#ABD)I updated from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 and as well as Qualcomm Atheros QCA9000 Series Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows by the suggestion of Hp support Assistance. After that started facing Wifi problems. Initially on starting laptop, Wifi get connected automatically.. But after 5-10 minutes it shows LIMITED Connectivity. After few seconds or minuts later get connection again or When I turn ON Flight mode and then OFF it, it gets back to full connection.But, after sometime it goes back to LIMITED. This keeps on happening.I've tried installing various versions of Broadcom & Intel WLAN Adapter Drivers!. Still no success!While writing this post Wifi went into limited connectivity once!
We have several Latitude E7240's on our network. They are configured with Windows 7 x64. We have been having trouble with this particular model in regards to wireless connections.
When the laptop is powered on and the user logs in, the laptop connects to the wireless network, however it is not getting an IP address from the router. It sticks at "limited connectivity", and gives itself a "169" IP. It stays that way for about 5 or so minutes then finally connects.
The WLAN drivers are already to the latest version, and to "bandaid" the issue, I have to uninstall the Wireless NIC drivers then reinstall them.
At first I was thinking it may be a router issue (Which is a Sonicwall TZ210W), but it can't be because its wireless devices of differing models have no problem connecting and getting an IP address. Also, it starts working once the drivers are reinstalled (though I'm not confident this is a permanent fix).
All the E7240's have the Dell 1506 Wireless card, and are all and originally were) on driver version 10.0.0.268, A02. Also, I have tried turned off any power management settings of the WNIC prior to the driver reinstall.
I have just received my new Inspiron 15R which I cannot fault, even after the minefield of getting to grips with Windows 8.........However for some reason my wifi connection will be stable for about 10 minutes and then show limited connection with no internet access although the network connection is very good! All other laptops and devices are still connected!
Its been quite a while (3 months ) that ive upgraded my windows 8 to 8.1 . I didn't bother checking it till now that I cannot connect to any ethernet network at all. Ive tried evrything from disabling ipv6, updating network drivers and even resetting the routers like a gazillion times but i've had no such luck in any of the process ive done so far .
I have got a new Dell Inspiron 3521 i5 with 4GB RAM - 64 bit OS - Windows 7 - Service Pack 1 Laptop, everything works good except, the problem with my Wi-Fi Connectivity.
The issue I'm experiencing is with the Internet connectivity, my Wi-Fi connectivity loses frequently and I get message saying "Limited Access", and gives me an option to reconnect it manually which is a bit disappointing. .
Rest all works pretty fine, I'm satisfied about it. Just this error, disappoints me.
The troubleshooting I have tried so far is -
1) Resetting router for 30 seconds and restarting it - did not fix my problem.
2) Checking firewall settings - did not fix my problem either.
So I purchased a y510p from a retailer yesterday and was very happy with it. First thing I did was update to Windows 8.1. After updating, I get VERY unreliable, weak wi-fi signals and limited connectivity on all wi-fi connections. My wireless card is Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230.
I am having problems with my Wifi on my HP Pavilion 17-e055nr Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR) (Product Number: E8B74UA ) Initially on starting laptop, Wifi get connected automatically.. But after 5-10 minutes it shows LIMITED Connectivity.When I turn ON Flight mode and then OFF it, it gets back to full connection.But, after sometime it goes back to LIMITED.
The laptop is a Acer 5520-5912 running Vista Home Edition.
I am trying to figure out some issues with my father's new laptop when connecting to the internet. There was a problem with finding wireless networks which was attributed to a problem with the wireless network card driver. I deleted the driver, figuring I would just connect to the wired network only to find that the laptop will not see my lan connection.
I tested the lan connection in my laptop and it worked great.
When I go into the network connections it shows 1 broadband connection that is disconnected through something called a WAN Miniport (PPPOE). I have no idea what this Miniport is, and when I try to connect, it does not connect.
The second connection shown is the Local Area Connection (LAN), and it says the network cable is unplugged.
I have just purchased an Acer Aspire E5-511, it repeatedly loses internet connection (wifi) despite still showing as being connected. I have read that numerous other people have experienced this problem but I have not found a solution that works. I have tried updating the driver and changing the battery power settings etc. I have spent ages transferring all my files accross so am reluctant to have to send it back now.
So, I've had this problem from some time now. When I put my switch 10 to sleep, and then re-open it, the keyboard is not working anymore, like it has problem recharging drivers. Same issue happens sometime when I use it in tablet mode and then reconnect the dock to it, I've a very hard time trying to make the keyboard and touchpad working again. The fact is that the usb port on the dock doesn't seem to have any problem at all, only the touchpad and the keyboad. I can't figure out if that's a software or an hardware problem.
I manage to pair my 2-in-1 pc Acer Switch 10 with an externat Bluetooth (bt) device only when the tablet is connected to my home wifi network. As soon as I disconnect from the wifi network, the pairing with the bt device is disabled. If I try to pair the bt device when wifi connection is off, the pairing succeeds just for a few seconds (1 or 2) and then it disconnects.
The support assistance of the bt device, since it actually manages to pair with the pc in such wifi wird conditions, suggested that it probably can be a problem due to the chip of the pc that probably manages both the wifi and the bt connections and is not able to manage them separately.
and updating the bt driver downloaded from the ACER Drivers and Manuals webpage. However, the installation procedure were interrupted as the installed bt driver appears to be "later".
I have been having an issue with my laptops internet for the past few days . It would work for an hour and then all of a sudden stop . I would get a notification saying no network access . The internet on every other device in my house is working fine . So far I have unplugged and rep lugged the modem . I have searched everywhere online and I found no solutions . I have a HP G 42 notebook PC.
The Wifi on this laptop keeps either dropping connection, or changing to a "limited" network. Sometimes it works fine, but more often than not it drops out. All other wifi enabled devices in my house work fine, so I know it's not the internet. I've also tested on two other networks where the same dropping out occurs.
