Some Windows users are experiencing a strange problem. After installing the preview version of Windows 8.1, they observed that their device was showing ‘Limited Connectivity’ error in WiFi status and they couldn’t access the internet until re-connected.
I realized this is a common issue with Windows 8.1. In some cases, even resetting the device and starting over didn’t help.

Limited WiFi connection
First create a system restore point. Then right-click the ’Start’ button to access ‘Control Panel’ option and select it.

Next, chose ‘Device Manager’ option.

Next select ‘Network Adapters’ and under it, you will find a Wi-Fi controller listed. Select it.

Double-click the controller to open the adapter’s Property window and switch to ‘Drivers’ tab.

Next, click the ‘Disable’ button and hit ‘Ok’ to apply the changes. See if it helps. If it does not help, re-enable it and proceed to the next step.
If the above solution fails, try doing the following.
Open an admin-level command prompt in Desktop mode, type the following commands, and hit Enter after each command:

netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled

netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled

Then type the following and hit Enter, to verify that practically all the settings are disabled.

netsh int tcp show global

Finally, reboot your machine and see if this helps.
