I have an Acer Aspire V5-571P-6642, windows 8, just purchased. I cannot figure out how to get the wifi to stop randomly saying "limited access" ?
It happens a few times an hour, suddenly a page won't load and if I wait long enough the wifi will say "limited access". If I turn off the wifi and back on, problem is solved in about 15 seconds, but its still pretty annoying in the middle of a video or working on homework.
I tried everything I could find in searches...updating drivers, changing power-saving settings, nothing has worked.
It's definitely the computer. This happens on any wifi connection, anywhere and my phone always works when the laptop stops.
Any ideas ? It seems to me (not being much a computer expert, mostly from what I read) that it could be a problem with the drivers ? Like I said, reinstalled and updated but maybe thats still the problem ? I dont know. Thanks.
ps. it happened while I was typing this, deleting part of what I wrote, highlighting my frustration with a brand-new $800 machine failing to perform a pretty simple task.
