    Not showing working internet connection

    Have problem. Pls help. After the new windows 8.1 update (which inclided the home screen power off button) a net problem came out. In my wifi indication, it sais "limited", but when i enter the web, i can search in the internet without probs. When i go to net. and sharing center, i cant see any network. On my other laptop (win7) it shows the connection normally. Thx and sry for bad lang.

    Limited is usually caused by a router issue. Basically the router has not released the previous lease on that MAC, or the computer is unable to resolve the handshake negotiation with the router. If the router is using a Captive Portal or you are using PPPoE. You have to authenticate before removing that limited connection.

    Try doing the following from a Command Window as administrator: ipconfig /flushdns . Also: netsh winsock reset catalog .
