What does Windows test for "limited connectivity"

There are a million posts from people experiencing this (most of those from amateurs), but not a good source listing SPECIFICALLY what Windows is testing to arrive at the conclusion of "limited connectivity".

I'm not looking for how to "fix" the problem.  I'm looking for a list of the checks Windows runs to determine whether the connectivity is "limited".

I realize there are probably several symptoms which could trigger the condition - but what are those conditions - is there an official list?

- missing IP (no dchp)
- can't ping gateway
- can't ping past gateway
- no DNS resolution - what names is it testing?
- icmp latency? what is the threshold?
- traceroute failure - what does it trace?
- etc...

PERFECT!!!

The first 2 links describe exactly what I'm looking for.

The third is pretty much all I was finding - how to *fix* it when you see the "limited connectivity" - which I'm perfectly capable of doing.  I just had no concrete list of what exactly Windows is checking to determine it needs to display the warning in the first place.

THANK YOU!!!
