limited wireless connection

    I also had wireless connectivity issues with my wife's new windows 8 notebook and I solved them by uninstalling the Intel PROSet/Wireless Software (Option: "Uninstall a Program")

    Hi there
    Often these problems are caused by the following

    1) Contention -- if you have load of neighbours also with wireless connections -- change the router to use another channel or better switch to wireless-N if your computers can handle it.

    2) signal strength poor --- get a Wi-Fi extender (around 40 - 60 EUR).

    3) some device (mobile phone / tablet / media server etc) is using the IP address that your computer normally uses.
    Swiitch off ALL devices including Computers, Mobile phones / tablets and re-boot the router. I know these days that finding the OFF button on a mobile phone is likely to be a near impossible task for a lot of people but believe me they DO actually have these.

    This will usually fix limited connectivity problems.
    In general its always better to let Windows set up connections than use 3rd party applications.

    Trouble with limited connectivity

    I was having problems with my Dell Venue 8 pro getting only limited connectivity. I was having a DNS server isn't responding when troubleshooting. I found this You Tube video and it worked great

    I now have full connectivity again!
