Troubleshooting Wi-fi connectivity issues in Windows

Often we find some mysterious messages of Windows when we try to access internet over Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity): 
This connection has limited or no connectivity.  
No internet access
The connection is limited

The limited connectivity issue is an extremely annoying problem because the error can easily waste an entire day trying to fix it.  
Here, I will give you some tips to solve the Wi-Fi connectivity issues.
When you encounter Wi-Fi network issues, ensure that Wi-Fi drivers are installed properly.

1)      The very first thing that you have to do is rebooting both the system and Wi-Fi router.
2)        Turn off the Wi-Fi router & hold the reset button of the router for 30 seconds
That should get you back online! If not then you must attempt the following tricks or methods.

3)          Reset the Wireless network adapter

  • In the Run box type the following command 
  • This command brings a list of network connection icons. Now find the Wi-Fi network adapter & Right-click on the Wi-Fi connection and select Disable.
  • After that you have to Enable the Wi-Fi adapter by double clicking on the Wi-Fi connection.
  • Now try to access internet in your browser.

If the problem is not resolved, then try the next remaining methods too…

4)                Reset the TCP/IP stack | This can solve some browsing issues

 In the Wi-Fi Properties window click the Configure button.

Then pick the last tab called Power Management and you’ll see this option:
