Windows 7: Limited access to home wifi

Hi there.

Just thought I'd mention this. I figured out why I got kicked out of my WiFi (it happened again 3 days ago and I fixed it the same way). Anyway. The WiFi switched me to limited access after I downloaded something from the Internet. And I just accidentally clicked a download link (I thought it was a link to a webpage, lame Google search result) so I fear once I shut down then turn it on tomorrow, I'll be back to limited access until I reboot my router.

Does anyone know how to change this so I don't get booted out after a download?

That's not an answer applicable to my issue. Did you even read my post?

May I ask what were you accidentally trying to download? Is it a huge file?
You may get disconnected if others in your home network are utilizing the bandwidth.

A strange behavior why it switches you back to limited access.

Id try assigning Static IP to the affected connection instead of DHCP and see if it helps.
In your case you will be modifying the Wireless setting. See if you can get a solid connection after.

Well the first time I got kicked out after downloading two WinRARs and the second time I downloaded 16 songs to burn onto a CD for a relative.
