Re: Wifi always limited but works on ethernet

hi Hyahsy,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

Can you check under Device Manager and under Network Adapters,

       Can you share what's your Wifi Adapter model / name / manufacturer.

 

Let me know your findings

Cheers!

Re: Wifi always limited but works on ethernet

Hi guys this is hyashy. I am back to tell you guys how I actually fixed it. This problem had been goin on before and I did the same thing to fix it. Even though I didn't want to do it either time. What you have to do is reset to factory. And do not update to windows 8.1 because something in there doesn't allow connection. Now that I only have win 8 it works fine. And that's how I solved it. Hopefully when windows makes 8.2 or 9 I can update and have no problem.
