Many Windows 10 users get a limited connectivity message and it’s challenging to figure out what’s causing it. It can be triggered by outdated drivers, a faulty Ethernet cable, your network adapter, or even the antivirus software you use. The only thing you can do is troubleshoot WiFi one step at a time and hope for the best.
We’re going to try the most common solutions, but make sure to try other fixes mentioned in this article if those don’t work.
Run the Networking Troubleshooter
The first thing you should try is the built-in Windows 10 networking troubleshooter. In a lot of cases, WiFi problems can be solved automatically.
The easiest way to access this resource is to type troubleshoot in the search box and select the Find and fix network problems option.
This opens the Internet Connections panel.
Let Windows diagnose the networking issues and apply any suggested fixes. If this doesn’t help, you should also troubleshoot the network adapter. Type troubleshoot network adapter in the search box and follow the same steps.
