Having "Limited Wifi" Connection Windows 8

Posted 04 March 2015 - 09:56 AM

My laptop is giving me some problems here lately connecting to my university's internet connection on Windows 8. I will turn on my computer, get in Firefox then it will load up my Google homepage. Ill type in any other website and it will give me a page that the "Server not found", Ill then hover over my wifi icon and a pop up that it is an "Unidentified network" "No access" will show. It will show that I am connected to the wifi but it will have a shield icon next to the connection bars. I will right click the wifi icon on the bottom left of the screen and click trouble shoot problems. When its finished it will tell me to "Investigate router or Access point issues" this is on a universities wifi I cannot disconnect the wifi..

Please help me resolve this.

Thank you so much!

I am not sure why this was in 'html/css'.

Does your laptop have problems connecting to any other wifi APs?

If you open a command prompt & nslookup google.com, what results do you get? Can you post the output?
