    My Connection keeps flipping to Limited


    Last night, my router worked perfectly. Just the occasional lag spikes as normal. When I got on this morning, it said that my connection was limited. So I went to the network and sharing center, and ran a troubleshoot on my router. It came up fixed, so I proceeded to play League of Legends. Twice over that 25 minute game, my connection was lost. Only I was still connected to my router, I just had a limited connection. Is this a computer or a modem problem, and can anyone help me fix it?

    EDIT: I should also mention that my modem goes from 2 solid and 2 blinking to 1 blinking light. Probably a good sign that it's the modem

    It does sound like you are losing your modem connection to your ISP base on you EDIT. So, how to you get your internet service back? And, can you be a bit more specific about whay those light mean?

Limited wireless connection in Network & Sharing
I have read previous posts that say to uninstall 3rd party virus software/firewalls and this should solve the wireless connection dropping. Mine still drops after I have uninstalled McAfree. What else can I do? It usually drops several times a night!!! Really annoying.
