When I take my Lenovo ideapad running Windows 10 to my local library and try to connect to the Internet the taskbar connection shows "limited connection" and I cannot go online.
One suggestion to me was uninstalling network drivers and re-booting which did indeed solve the problem but next time I went back the connection was again limited.
This ony seems to happen at the library, other public places work fine.
Any help appreciated.

For a successful connection to the library system do you get redirected to a page where you have to promise to be good? If so, does that page not come up for the failed connections?

For a limited connection ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.
(In Windows 10 you may have to use some other procedure to get a Command Prompt window.)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

[Press ENTER after the command.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

The library connection seems to be working now.
I suspect the problem was caused by my vpn so now I disable it at the library and everything sees to be ok.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
