Windows 8.1 - Unidentified network-limited


Posts

Hello guys.The only reason i'm starting a new topic is that I'am desperate.I basically tried every solution there is out there and nothing works.Here goes.

I installed win 8.1 recently and the problem is,at the title suggest,I got a connection that says Unidentified Network-Limited.I said no problem,I set up a new connection,broadband,I entered the username and password the isp gave me,and the internet works fine.The problem is,under my connection panel,I have 2 connections,one that says Unidentified-Limited,and the one I created and that works.Beside that this is an irritating problem(I could live with that),the bigger problem is that I can no longer download at full speed.I used to download with 10mg,but now,at some torrents it's now up to even 1mg,or if it is,suddendly goes down,and back up,and down again.This is a happy case,I download torrents with 500kb,a torrent which a friends downloads it with 6-8 mg.I just wanna get rid of that limited connection.

Here's how it looks like.I made the non working one private,as in a tutorial from here,but still,won't work.

If anyone can please help,I tried everything,I am desperate.Thank you.

Hi,
You need to provide more detail about your network, adapters, system and other information.

For now press Windows key + X and then select command prompt (Admin)
copy and paste following commands, line by line into the console and hit enter after each one:

c:
cd \
mkdir info
cd info

netsh wlan show all > wlan.txt
ipconfig /all > ipconfig.txt
driverquery /V > drivers.txt
wmic baseboard > baseboard.txt
wmic computersystem > computersystem.txt
wmic service > services.txt
wmic process > process.txt
netsh dump > dump.txt
netsh lan show settings > lan_settings.txt
netsh lan show profiles > lan_profiles.txt

powershell

Get-NetFirewallrule -Enabled True -Direction Outbound > firewall_outbound_rules.txt
Get-NetFirewallrule -Enabled True -Direction Inbound > firewall_inbound_rules.txt
Get-NetFirewallProfile > firewall_profile.txt
Get-netfirewallsetting > firewall_setting.txt



Now open Windows explorer and navigate into C drive, then select info folder, compress it with windows zip utility 7zip or with similar tool and post here as attachment.

Hi,
It looks that instead of pasting line by line you copied all at once? because some files are missing and some are empty :confused:

Assume problem is USB / Cable broadband adapter and you're using that as primary connection?
go to Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools open services as administrator and enable following services:
WWAN Autoconfig ( start it and set to automatic )
Wired Auto config ( start it but leave on manual )
Plug out cable / USB broadband adapter and plug it back, then connect. (additionally you can try to reboot )

As for torrent client you have no firewall rules defined ( or you have them defined elsewhere ?? ).

Take a look here µTorrent ruleset
You also need to setup torrent client for specific port and adjust rules according to that.

make a speed test on speedtest.net share a photo :D
And also tell what was you previous internet speed and what speed do you have now with new net?

I did paste it line by line,don't know what's the problem.

I took a speed test,it says 61 mbps...

The problem started when I installed windows 8.1.I used to download with 11mg max,but that's not the issue.The main problem is,even if I get it up to 5 mg,8 mg,it lasts only a couple of seconds,and then it comes down again.

Now,after I made your adjustmens,it remains blocked on Identyfing-Limited.It doesn't even say Unidentified anymore.

Have you tried to right click on network icon in bottom right corner and then "Troubleshoot problems" ?
if there are any messages when the troubleshooter is done click on "see details" and post the output here.

''Ethernet Doesn't have a Valid Ip Configuration''.That's what it says.
OK we found a problem then.

But to fix it we need one more information.
Please perform following:

Press Windows key + X and select command prompt (Admin)

When command prompt opens type following (or copy/paste) line by line and press enter after each line:
c:
cd \

ipconfig /all > ipconfig.txt

Open Windows explorer and navigate into Windows ( C ) drive like last time.
open ipconfig.txt file and copy contents of the file here into this thread.

Also please again right click on network icon in right bottom corner but this time select "Open network and sharing center"
When window opens click on "change adapter settings" link in left top corner, take a screenshot and attach the image here.

Without this information it's not possible to give accurate suggestions.

Ok, I see now, we are very close to solve this.
What we need to do next is to figure out your router's IP address setup so that we then manually setup Ethernet adapter IP address.
There are several ways to figure it out, so follow these steps:

Like last time press Windows key + X and select command prompt (Admin)


When command prompt opens type following (or copy/paste) line by line and press enter after each line:
NOTE: it will take some time for some of these commands to complete so don't interrupt them, please make sure you do not skip any of them, wait for each one to complete then paste next one and so on.

c:
cd \
mkdir info
cd info
ping 192.168.1.1 > a.txt
ping 192.168.0.1 > b.txt
ping 172.16.0.1 > c.txt
ping 172.16.1.1 > d.txt
ping 10.0.0.1 > e.txt
ping 10.0.1.1 > f.txt
tracert 8.8.8.8 > g.txt
ping 192.168.1.255 > h.txt
ping 192.168.0.255 > i.txt
ping 172.16.0.255 > j.txt
ping 172.16.1.255 > k.txt
ping 10.0.0.255 > l.txt
ping 10.0.1.255 > m.txt
tracert 92.87.171.139 > n.txt


This will again place a folder named info into your C drive like last time, zip it up (all the text files) and attach it here.
There should be 14 text files in total.

Here are the steps remaining to perform...

NOTE:
Please note these steps, if you encounter Internet connectivity problems after applying these settings so that you can roll back changes to previous settings just in case :).

1. Right click your network icon on task bar and click "Open Network and Sharing Center"
2. Click on "Change adapter settings"
3. Right click on "Ethernet adapter" one that says "Unidentified network" and click Properties
4. Scroll down and double click on "Internet Protocol v4 (TCP/IP)"

Now input numbers into that dialog like in the image bellow:

Capture.PNG

5. Click OK to save and wait a minute or 2 until settings get validated.
6. try to surf the web afterwards and see if Internet works.

If internet does not work reboot you PC and router and try again.
If still no luck revert changes back by following same procedure but set options to "Obtain an IP address Automatically" and "Obtain DNS Server automatically" like it was before modification.

What ever the result share here. :D
Hopefully it will work.

Yes I can,it works better now.The download slowly rises to 9-11 mg,then goes back slowly to 10kb and then goes back up and seems to stay there.I can live with that ''limited''problem.

Thank you for your effort.
