Randomly changes to limited connectivity
Hi guys. I'm convinced I have a driver problem or something similar here but
I have the latest one...

Anyway, I reformatted my laptop (before reformat everything network wise was
working 100%) but afterwards I seem to get randomly changed to limited
connectivity. I've also noticed my signal strength is quite poor despite
being excellent before the reformat. Does anyone have any idea what this
might be?

Many thanks, Jon.

Re: Randomly changes to limited connectivity
And before I would do that I would:

1. Do a google search on "limited connectivity" and "registry" and edit
your registry to turn of the DHCP flag.
2. Disable IPv6.
3. Make sure that, in your NIC advanced properties, power saving mode is
turned to "off."
4. In your network options, make sure that "use another preferred network
if one is available" is turned off.
5. Make sure you have the latest driver for your wireless NIC.

Some manufacturers are introducing firmware upgrades for their routers to
address this Microsoft bug. It is, however, a bug. The above steps usually
provide a semi-reliable work-around.
