    OSX and wifi is fine

    But when running windows 7 in bootcamp the wifi drops out with "limited access"

    The signal and SSID is still there but the connection drops with a yellow traingle showing

    I then can't see the default gateway ( AP ) and then only fix is to disable and re-enable the wifi

    I've played around with all different wifi channels and settings and nothing works

    I also have a late 2013 iMac with the same wifi module and it does the same

    Rock solid on OSX, just windows 7

    Any ideas please ?

    I have not seen this issue either with win7 and bootcamp of win7 in a VM.

    Wi-Fi adapter makes normal connection in OSX

    Wi-Fi adapter makes normal connection in OSX, But 'limited' one in Windows 7 or 8 ?
    Can't get a working connection to my gateway router in Windows, the same router works fine and connection is normal, working one in OSX. Using the new MacBook Air late 2013 model.

    When I connect to it in Windows 7, it's flagged as 'limited', no internet connection available. Have tried uninstalling\re-installing wi-fi adapter drivers in device manager to no avail. It's probably some freaky incompatibility between the current Windows broadcom driver and the broadband router, any ideas on how to fix it would be great.

    I have yet to try it with a different router, but even if it works with a different one I don't think that warrants a router change, a router that otherwise works perfectly fine when the machine is booted into OSX.
