What does Windows test for "limited connectivity"
Posted on 2013-05-30
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?
