I just upgraded to Windows 8 on my work computer. I work from my home office quite a lot and connect wirelessly at home. I have a Netgear RangeMax WNDR3700 router at home that is connected to my broadband modem. Here's the observations I've made:
1. I cannot connect the wireless network at home from my work laptop - it connects but says I have "Limited Access".
2. I can connect to the wireless network at home through other devices (laptop, phone, Kindle, TV). I am able to access the internet without any problems.
3. I can use an Ethernet cable to connect my work laptop directly to the router and it works great.
4. I can connect to the wireless network at work through my work laptop and that works too.
The only thing that doesn't seem to work is when I connect my work laptop wirelessly to the router at home. I can't figure out what's going wrong.
When I try the diagnosis process in Windows, I am told to shut down and restart the modem/router to see if that fixes the problem. It does not.
Anybody have any ideas on what else I could try. Anyone else experiencing this?
