Ok, i got it!

Now, to be continued:

Step 1:

Go to here then choose UNINSTALL

   

Step 2:

Download the file below:

http://www.mediafire.com/?tpsa4qfrsuand13

Step 3:

Extract it, then go to Install_CD and run setup.exe.

After complete the installation, restart your computer and you will see the result!
If it appear Limited Access or No internet access, wait a moment about 60 second for your laptop request a new ip address from DHCP of your wifi device. While you waiting for the response you may run command prompt as administrator and clear your DNS's Cache by command: ipconfig /flushdns

(Note: If it works, remember click Thank for me ^^ and you remember that i will help you until your laptop works fine! Of-course, if you want me to do that)

Hi, I am having the same problem. But the wierd thing is that when I am far from the router I have a limited connection and can't go online but when I go in the same room as the router then everything goes back to normal..

I attached the screenshot you needed, I hope we can fix it!
Thank you.

Hi Hii,

I think your weird thing is the normal one. When the distance from your PC to your router is too far or have obstructions between them then the signal must be low that causes the limited connection.

Salut hii,
Normalement, quand vous êtes loin de votre Router, vous ne pouvez pas connecter à votre Router.
C'est difficile! Mais vous pouvez essayer ma méthode:
Premièrement: Choisir: Désinstaller comme l'image:

   

Tout Désinstaller.

Deuxièmement:
Téléchargez ce fichier: http://www.mediafire.com/download/bmpsqx...nd_8.1.zip

Troisièmement: Unzip et choisir le dossier Install_CD, ensuite choisir setup.exe

Ensuite, redémarrez votre laptop, attendez vers 60 seconds, quand vous l'attendez, vous exécutez le Command Prompt(par Administrator) et tapez: ipconfig /flushdns

Finalement, regardez votre laptop! Bonne chance Big Grin
À bientôt.
