I can't use my browsers, downloads stop, and the little wifi signal indicator in the notifications area develops a pesky little yellow exclamation point. I click on it and it says "limited connectivity." When I go to Network and Sharing Center, It shows that I am connected to the network, but the network isn't connected to the internet. Here's the rub... All other computers on the network show that the network is connected to the internet. All of their browsers work and do
  2. Hi friends. I'm seeing a new behavior during downloads that i'm not familiar with.
