I have a desktop computer that is working just fine. When i connect to the internet with my laptop via the wireless router, my laptop is moving slow. The cable guy who i get my net service from said that i probably need to change the channel that my router is on from 2 to 11. Could someone please tell me how?
Put in the disc again and run the installation and when it asked me to run the installation it asked me what channel I wanted it on but the default was 11 so I kept it there, just try to set it up again

Limited connectivity (this phrase occurs first inside the WIN 8 OS) means, that you have connection with your router already, but NOT to the internet. Pls. check, if you have access to internet from other computers or smartphone connected via the same router. If so, sometimes a driver-update for your D-Link could be useful. Check also, if other wireless adapters are working with the same frequency, this may disturb. Try to change the channel or change from 2,4 GHz to the 5 GHz Channels, if the router & your D-Link Adapter will support this. I had the same problem with my WIN 8 - PC and I had to change the (wireless) radio-channel.
check the wireless settings of the router. Open the set up page of the router and make sure that the wireless SSID broadcast is enabled. If enabled then try to change the wireless channel of the router. if that doesn't work then try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Click Here for more info about routers
It's just a wireless interference problem. All you need to do is change the wireless channel of your router. Login to the router's admin page and look for wireless channel under the WIRELESS tab. Change it to channel 11 and save the settings. That should solve your problem. You can play around with different channels and check which one is the best for your environment. Good Luck!
Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
