Windows 8.1 limited connection issue

Recommended Posts

So lately my laptop has been acting really weird, it says that either my connection is limited, or that it's not connected, yet I have internet connection and everything works except the windows apps like store (that happens both on wi-fi and cable). And also every time I go into the network and sharing center it says "The dependency service or group failed to start". I have literally tried everything, and none of those "internet solutions" that i found worked, so if anyone has a solution I would be so thankful.

Here's what it looks like : https://ibb.co/c1Ln8Q

Have you tried opening cmd as admin and typing:

 

netsh winsock reset catalog

and then,

netsh int ip reset reset.log hit

 

then reboot the machine.

I had a hard time dealing with this issue when I was using 8.1. It used to get fixed randomly after uninstalling/reinstalling WLAN drivers or simply disabling/enabling WLAN adapter. 

Btw just upgrade to win 10 if possible, never faced that problem in 10.

Already tried that before you suggested it,and yet again I did it, still nothing.

Also tried it again but no result.And no, updating is not an option.

Try to get closer to the router and if the problem persists, get a AC WIFI adapter that gets plugged in via USB.
