    Internet limited on only one computer


    When I try to connect to my home wifi network it works on 3 different laptops but on my main PC it says limited access. I have comcast and in my area there is a xfinitywifi hotspot and when I connect to that its just fine so it works with all networks except mine and if it does connect its super slow. Everything was working just fine like 5 minutes ago then I lost internet on all computers and then every thing else got the internet back except my PC.

    Are you using a modem, or a eMTA that Comcast provided to you? What is the manufacturer & model of the unit you are using to connect via Comcast Coax at home.

    There is one particular Gateway that Comcast uses, that tends to croak after a while.
