    Hello,

    I'm a n00b, but with 8.1 I'm a bigger n00b. I have 8.1 that will connect to the internet [Wifi + Cable] but one specific network it will only make a limited connection [Wifi + Cable], but the network works fine with other devices...

    I suppose that the network is blocked but I don't see where or how!

    It's a new computer, with nothing but office and McAfee LiveSafe

    Please help!

    There's a rule in computing.
    Never allow any McAfee software to remain installed.

    On my machines you can add Norton/Symantec to the list. JMO.

    Yah, if we were simply naming things we don't like on our own systems, I would put every single a/v-related program on it.
    I even disable Windows Defender.

    Apparently there are still people who think that a/v programs actually help you. I have personally never witnessed this miraculous occurrence.

    I used to have the same problem with my Toshiba laptop before. But after I upgraded the wifi router firmware, my laptop is working fine.

    Must commit Bitdefender in my last test kept my PC 1000% safe from being infected by rendering the OS useless with a Repair Loop at boot :mad:.

    I did a fresh install of win8.1 twice on my friends laptop and keep getting "limited Internet access /unidentified network" on wifi/ethernet. i tried all the command prompt tricks as admin, rebooted, no go, tried to manually update driver, no go.
    Reinstalled win7 x64 and Internet/wifi work beautifully but my friend insist on having this POS win8 . 1
    I tried different win8.1 iso's, no go....
    I tried installing the iso from different flash drives, burned iso at different speeds

    Now it says that the default gateway is not available, and ethernet does not have a valid IP configuration?
