When I recently faced this similar problem randomly on a Windows 10 and another Windows 8.1 laptop, the following steps helped me to solve the issue.This problem is specifically not for wireless network adapter, it can happen to your LAN wired network adapter too.

If you get error on Windows 10/8.1 while connected through wireless adapter, you must check this guide to fix it.

Updating or re-installing the Wi Fi adapter driver will solve it most of the time.

But this limited connectivity issue in Windows 10/8.1 could be due to the IP address issue.

The network adapter will not get an IP address hence it will be getting APIPA address range, something like 169.245.x.x, that means you are in trouble.

If your Windows 10 desktop or laptop suddenly lost the network connectivity and showing limited connectivity, then this how-to guide will be useful.

The below steps show how to fix Windows 10 limited connectivity issue on wireless or wired network.

If it shows as limited connectivity, mostly the network adapter would not have got an IP from the DHCP.

If only one particular PC is facing this issue on your network/home, then obviously nothing wrong with the network setup or DHCP server, its the problem on your Windows 10 laptop or desktop.

As described earlier, this is due to IP address/IP stack problem which can be resolved by resetting the TCP/IP stack to it’s default value.

TCP/IP is a protocol used in most of the computers (including Mac, Linux and Windows) and other network devices to make communication in LAN or WAN.

Use Net Shell utility (This will mostly solve the problem of limited connectivity issue on Windows 10 or 8.1.4) If you are still facing the issue and your Windows 10 or 8.1 can’t connect to internet and other local network resources, continue below steps.
