So as things typically go when I need to do something important for work something is bound to go wrong. Now in this case I may be to blame because the other week I was messing around with VPN clients in an attempt to connect to the office. Who knows what settings I may have touched. At the time everything seemed to work fine, so it may have been a setting that required a restart. Since I rarely restart my laptop it was not noticed until I came home this evening and was forced to restart. Once my laptop had rebooted I soon found that I could not connect to the internet. My wireless connection read “Connected with limited access”.
I researched this for a little while, I came across several posts that pointed to updating drivers or my router’s firmware. If you haven’t messed with any settings that might be a good place to start.
What I found that helped was to:
- Go to device manager and remove the wireless network card, when you reboot it will find it and reinstall the drivers. Do not delete the drivers.
- From an elevated command prompt (run as administrator) type “netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
- Restart your computer
Once I did this I was good to go.
