specific Wi Fi signal undetected


  • I have a router in my room, and my roommate has his own too, when I first installed W8 I was able to detect my router's signal and had internet access normally, after a couple hours the signal appeared as ''limited'' and then some minutes later it just dissapeared.  Anyway i can still detect my roommate's signal and my router's signal is detected by my iphone, any ideas of what's going on?

  • Have you tried power cycling the router (powering off & unplugging all cables for 5-10 minutes), or possibly resetting the router completely and starting your network anew?

    I would also suggest running the "Refresh your PC without affecting your files" option in Control Panel > General to troubleshoot with.

    Here is what will happen when you refresh of your PC:

    • Your files and personalization settings won't change.
    • Your PC settings will be restored to their defaults.
    • Apps from Windows Store will be kept. All other apps will be removed.
