    "Limited" WiFi on 8/8.1

    Hey guys I was just wondering if you knew how to solve this: When I use WiFi, a lot of times it has a little yellow icon next to the network and says "limited" It fixes itself when i disconnect and reconnect but happens again later. Thanks!

    Hi there,

    What's your signed up Speed with your ISP? You may post your Speedtest. Would you happen to know if there are heavy gamers or video streamers in your household?

    Have you tried a wired connection?

    In addition, there might be interference with your nearby wireless networks using the same Channel as yours. We can find that out if you can provide us a snip of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector.
