Solved! Why does my laptop have internet access only when it is connected to phone's hotspot and not when it is connected to a normal wifi?


Jan 18, 2022
The problem started after I got my laptop's screen repaired (which had gone blank). The technician had mentioned that he had replaced some component of my laptop to make the screen work. Now my laptop gets connected to a normal Wi-Fi, but it says that the connection is limited and I am unable to access any websites. However there is no problem when I connect it to my phone's hotspot.

What seems to be the problem and how do I fix it?

The laptop is HP Pavilion series and is running Windows 8.1.
