My internet connection has some protection. Each device I use to run internet on, I have to log in to the network from the browser after connecting to the wifi. So, I cannot access Internet without logging into my network from the browser. In the status bar of my Windows 8 laptop, it shows a yellow triangle on the signal bars saying 'Limited'. I'm not able to log in to my internet from the browser. How do I fix this issue? I'm so frustrated of it. Please help me.

This is a problem that has had wide documentation across the web: windows 8 randomly drops wifi. Here is the best way to fix it:

right click the icon in the icon for wifi in the bottom right near calender. Click trubleshoot problems, and let it resolve itself. The trouble shooter should reset the wifi adapter, if it doesn't try again later. This should solve the problem.

Microsoft released windows 8 with this massive bug, but never responded with a single update, it was really disappointing.

have you actually looked at the cause of this issue? Microsoft does not update the firmware in peoples wireless routers for them. Some of the wireless routers are out of spec, you can connect to them with a high speed wireless device and things work as expected until some low speed device connects, the router then drops down to the lowest speed device for all connections. It is often a simple update of the firmware of the router in many cases.
Or a better router, one with two radios. How can Microsoft provide a update for something like that? it is not a bug in the OS, it is not a bug device driver that is installed on windows. It is external to the OS and the PC

I may have overreacted a little, but I have run this on brand new hardware with up to date firmware on all parts of the chain, and still had the problems. So I appreciate your advice, but I have found that it doesn't work. Also, I found that 8.1 doesn't have this problem, so I might suggest that. It is easy to upgrade.

I know this is older post, but wanted to add... Windows 8.1 still does not support WPA, so if that is the highest level your router goes, it won't work. Trying to find a work around with third party WiFi utilities but so far no luck.
