"Limited Access" issues with all networks I connect to

I am getting the "Limited Access" problem on my home network and on a friend's network, any ideas?
I surfed forums for 4 hours, still no success.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Is this a wired or wireless connection issue?
What type of Security or Anti-Virus Software are you using?

Can you please post an ipconfig /all output for review?

It's wireless, although we tried connecting by ethernet and still had the same issue.

Thanks for the output provided. Have you tried disabling Hamachi and see if it helps?

You might have ovelooked this:

I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials. Hamchi has been disabled. No difference.

I should also add that this happened after Windows did one of those forced updates.

Have you tried a System Restore, restore it a point when your computer was able to connect. This process will undo the latest Windows Updates.

If the above suggestion didn't help let's do some tests:
- Restart your computer, continue tapping F8 and select Safe Mode with Networking, see if you can connect here.

- Open up a command prompt and type ping yahoo.com then press enter, please post the results.

Another update will be appreciated.

Please pardon me sticking my nose in to the middle of this thread...
...but the Hamachi virtual adapter is not disabled in the screenshots that you posted. It has a leased IP and a gateway. Sometimes that confuses a Windows computer.

If by disabled, you mean that you have turned the Hamachi GUI off, then that does not solve the issue of dual gateways. You need to temporarily (for testing) disable the virtual adapter.

If you have already disabled the Hamachi virtual adapter, rebooted and found that it was not the issue.... then forget that I was ever here :-)


I now return you to your regularly scheduled thread.

I agree with disabling Hamachi and it's probably best to keep it disabled until after the problem is fixed.

The Op will also want to disable both of the Microsoft Virtual WiFi mini port adaptors as they are also famous for causing this problem.

You need to go into Device Manager for that.

As for the Windows update created problem, you can also go to Windows update in the Control Panel and roll back that update then hide it by right clicking the update and choose to hide it.

Anyway back to 2Xg's thread.
