My problem rises again. This time, I happened to reset my laptop before the semester starts and everytime i'm on the campus wifi this happens. I get the limited access symbol beside my wifi signals. It doesn't really happen to other people here besides me, so I'm assuming it may be a laptop problem? 

 

Also, I made a post like this last year, and the solution which was to put my battery to maximum strength and to uninstall my wifi adapter and let it reinstall worked, but this time it is not working for me. Possibly a Dongle help me fix the limited access problem?

 

My question is how can I fix this "Problem with wireless adapter or access point" or "No internet access" issue.

Uninstall and Reinstall your Wifi driver from your computer's support site. If that does not work then get yourself a Wifi Dongle. There are plenty of cheap ones on Ebay that do the job.

 

This is your previous thread. In it I linked to the driver and USB dongles. See my post #6 on instruction to update the driver in Device Manager. I would first uninstall the driver then reinstall the driver per the instructions.

Also, is there a dongle that I can insert into my laptop that doesn't include a cd? My laptop does not have a cd slot.

The dongle should be plug and play. No Cd required. If a driver is needed it can be downloaded form another computer.
