    Hey all,
    My wifi and my LAN keeps getting disconnected with either ""limited access"" or ""No internet connection"". All other devices are able to connect to this network.My laptop works fine with several other networks, and have tried resetting my router at home several times. Contacted my ISP(Verizon) too dumb to help me out.
    Have tried cmd/flushdns and iprenew commands through cmd, disabling firewalls, etc. All the initial tweaks to make it work. However it fails....please advise.

    If you have Avast AV installed you might try UN-installing it.... whiskey99 had problems with internet connection and that was his problem.....

    do you have a router? try looking at it as a possibility.
    I read back and see that you do have a router so maybe also check bios settings but if it works on other nets.... who knows????
    Do you have another laptop that you can try on your router?

    ran into a similar problem with a customer this past week with his iphone 6 & his network. his phone sees his wifi but won't connect but his tower & wife's tablet do see the network & connect to it. his phone won't connect to his network but will connect to other networks. trying to eliminate gamester0's router as a possible problem.

    Yes, its my laptop and it works fine with other networks, wireless and LAN....
    Strangely I guess I found a temporary fix. When it shows no connection available, command ipconfig/renew seems to be fixing things .I guess its one of the devices with a conflicting IP address.
    But I dont know why there seems to be a connection issue even with a LAN connection enabled.
