hello guys, I have an inspiron n4010 that usually came with windows 7, don't know exactly the version but it was windows 7. now I upgraded or did a new install to windows 8.1 pro, have all the updates installed, but my wireless card doesn't connect to my network, it stays on limited. It detects all networks wirelessly but when I try to connect it to mine it stays on limited, only way I can access the internet is by Ethernet. I went to the dells website and downloaded every single driver for it but nothing works. I have tried everything on google regarding this problem. its 64 bit windows 8.1 pro, any suggestions? I really need my wifi to work. from limited to connected.

Try these commands from an elevated (run as Administrator) Command Prompt (press Enter after each one):

 

netsh int tcp reset

netsh int ip reset

netsh winsock reset

 

Try the computer at another wifi hotspot to see if it works there.

On the "netsh int ip reset" I get resetting failed, access denied and the rest went ok but still no change. And I also tried different wifi and that doesn't matter. The whole thing is no matter what hotspot it is it won't connect it will say limited with a yellow quotation mark. It won't connect to any wifi it will only stay on limited

If you've tried to replace the drivers and you've reset the Windows components - I'd have to wonder if the wifi card is bad.

 

Can you get at the card from the bottom of the PC (make sure to unplug the power cord and remove the big battery first)?

If so, you may want to try another one to see if that works.

 

The only other suggestion I have is a complete reinstall of Windows - and that's sort of drastic at this point.

Good luck!
