Hello,
When trying to connect from my PC to my wireless network, I get the error "limited access." When troubleshooting I end up getting an error message that says "Problem with wireless adapter or access point." My laptop however is able to connect without any problems. I have tried restarting modem and router, but that did not do anything. I've also tried using two different adapters, but both give me the same error.

 

In addition, someone else in the household is having the same problem as me with his desktop. But his laptop also still works.

My ipconfig says:
Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection 6:
Connection-specific DNS suffix . :
Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . : fe80::8bd:fa3ebiggrin.gif 917:4ca6%19
Autoconfiguration IPV4 Address: 169.254.76.165
Subnet Mask : 255.255.0.0
Default Gateway 

 

My wireless adapter is TP-Link tl-wn851n. 

 

Thanks for any help.

If that is an exact post from your ipconfig /all your missing the default gateway. Without it, the packets don't know where the "Internet" is. I have attached a copy of my connection and highlighted the entry.

In your post you have an APIPA address that usually a faulty cable or a router port if you are connected by a cable.

 

Autoconfiguration IPV4 Address: 169.254.76.165
Subnet Mask : 255.255.0.0

 

APIPA doesn't have a default gateway 

 

If you are connecting by  wireless

 

make sure DCHP is issuing new ip addresses. or in the dchp pool 

 

than go to a command prompt and type in these two commands 

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew
