    Windows 8.1 .. Wifi connection = The connection is limited


    What the hell is going on?

    I have an Lenovo P500. Running 8.1. Intel N2230 wifi card

    It does have a connection, every now and then it may drop but not really.

    On the icon in the bottom right corner if I just hover the mouse over the wifi icon it is normal, name of connection and internet access. If I click the icon the purple box pops up on the right and it says The connection is limited.

    I have tried rollback, installing an updated driver from Lenovo support, Disable bluetooth and a couple other.

    Wifi works on every computer. Just this 8.1 it does not.

    Whenever I restart the computer it forgets the password, I have to re enter the password every time even though I have connect automatically checked.

    Are you trying to connect to a Public Wifi hotspot, or your own personal network?
