If other devices are connecting to the Internet as you say, then your issue is solely with your desktop PC.

Your problem could be a hardware problem or a software issue.

I need more information:
1) Was it working before then just stopped working?
2) Wi-Fi (wireless) or Ethernet (wired)?

Options:

1) Reinstall the software and run setup again

2) Buy a different Wi-Fi device (card or USB drive)

3) Use Ethernet

I know this thread is old but I have the same issue. I get the yellow triangle but it says limited access not no internet access. In my case I have to unplug the actual ISP modem (Time Warner in my case) then the router for at least five seconds. Then I plug the modem in then router. Once it boots I will have internet again for however long it may be. I have to do this once or twice a day. I have found out other people are stating that buying a better router fixes this issue which I do believe because I have noticed a lot of routers are only rated to handle so many devices simultaneously. I have had this issue with the wi-fi and hard-wiring my laptop. It is rare but occasionally another device on the network will have this issue but I think my device usually pulls the most bandwidth if it matters. Hope this answer helps someone.
-ISP Time Warner 20Mbps
-Router is low end Cisco Wireless N
-Alienware M14
-Atheros Qualcomm Killer E2200 PCI-E/ Killer Wireless N-1202 2.4GHz/5GHz
