Fix Windows 10 Wifi limited connection problem

My Surface Pro tablet has been upgraded to the latest Windows 10 version. Whenever I tried to connect to the wireless network which has five bars of signal strength, it showed the error “This connection has limited or no connectivity. No internet access” or The connection is limited. I was able to join the network with no transfered bandwidth, but I can’t figure out a way to resolve the problem.

How to fix limited or no connectivity WiFi issues in Windows 10
You could try any of those methods to get rid of the dropped connectivity or poor WiFi performance.
Through netsh command
* Press the Win + X + A from keyboard to launch the elevated command prompt.
* Type the command and press Enter to reset the TCP/IP stack to its default configuration:
netsh int ip reset
* Reboot the PC to check if it is fine.
* If you still couldn’t connect to Wi-fi, open command prompt and execute those commands one by one to reset TCP/IP Autotunning:

netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled

Re-configure the Wi-Fi Adapter
* CLick the Start menu, typing Device Manager into the search box, and open it from the results.
* Click the plus <+> sign next to Network Adapters, double-click your Wireless Adapter.
* Go to the Power Management, un-check the “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power” box, and click OK button.
Modify the default power saving power plan
* You can change the power options for the Wifi card from high energy savings to low. Works for me.
switching from microsoft driver to manufacturer’s version
* Microsoft try to replace the manufacturer’s drivers with its own in the system, so that causes this issue actually.
To fix it, revert the drivers to older version or your Manfacturer’s build, and restart your computer to activate it.

  1. This worked for me:

    Go to Device Manager, Find network adapters and WiFi card in it. Uninstall the driver, then Scan for changes so it is installed again (of course WiFi password was forgotten so you have to enter it again)

  2. Thank you very much, your first suggestion did the trick for me, I struggled for a week until I stumbled into your methods , keep up the good work.
