Hello there,
I have an HP laptop that was normally connected to the WiFi of my accomodation for more than 3 months. Then, yesterday, I accidentally unplugged my laptop and it closed after its battery's discharged, saving my progress. From that moment, when I reopened my laptop I encountered this Limited access WiFi. Whenever I try to reboot my laptop, the first time I try to connect to the WiFi, windows tell me that The connection was unsuccessful and when I try for a second time it shows me the limited access. I've already tried a bunch of methods described in other forums to solve this problem but none of them worked. Could you please help me?
Kind Regards,
Emmanuel
 
If it won't work on Ethernet then that aspect can be why it would need replacing. The WiFi can still work while the Ethernet doesn't, and vice versa.

Also, if there are any restrictions involving the modem/router you are accessing, then that would give you issues with the WiFi as well. And yes it can happen on only one device.
 
Did you try these?...

1. Go to "Control Panel".

2. Next go to "Network and Internet" and then "Network and Sharing".

3. Now click on "Manage Wireless Networks".

4. On this screen, remove all wireless connections by "right clicking" on it and select "Remove network" from the drop down menu.

5. After doing this, close the open windows and reboot the computer.

6. Once the computer is fully reloaded, scan for the "WiFi networks".

7. Click on the available network that you want to access and select "connect".

8. It takes a moment, but then you will be asked to give a password for your WiFi connection. Type in the password and click the "connect" button.

It should now be connected.

NOTE: If this doesn't work, you may want to reset your modem/router, and then once it is fully loaded again, repeat the above steps.

If this doesn't work, test seeing if your laptop will connect via Ethernet. If so, then your WiFi card may be going. You can either look to replace it/have it replaced, or get an external (plugs in via USB) WiFi card.


Another way to try it is to...

1. Go to "Settings".
2. Click on "Network & Security" and then click on "WiFi".
3. Now click "Manage known networks".
4. Select the WiFi connection you want to remove.
5. Click the "Forget" button.
6. After doing this, close the open windows and reboot the computer.
7. Once the computer is fully reloaded again go to "Settings".
8. Click on "Network & Security" and then click on "WiFi".
9. Now click "Manage known networks".
10. Click "Add a new network" and enter the network name.
11. Using the drop-down menu, select the "network security type".
12. Check the "Connect automatically" option.
13. Now check the "Connect even if the network is not broadcasting" option and click "Save".

Once you have completed these steps, whenever the device is within range of that particular network, it should automatically connect to it.


If none of this works, it may be the WiFi there has changed. It happens. You would need to check with the people who are in control of it.

My accomodation's WiFi doesn't have a password. You must first connect to the WiFi and then open a browser to log in to the internet. I haven't tried ethernet cause I don't have the cable yet. As for the rest of the methods you described, none of them worked :/...

Both mine and my sister's smartphones connect to the Wi-Fi successfully. As for the ethernet connection, when I place the cable to the port the network adaptor, which is in control panel, network network and internet, change adaptor settings, detects the cable but my laptop doesn't show me any Ethernet connection.
