Limited Access with Ethernet, even when not connected

  1. Hello, I'll try to be as clear as I can.

    I have my computer hooked up to my router with an Ethernet cable. About an hour ago the Limited sign popped up. With the cable connected it says Limited, but I can freely use the internet. When I take the cable out, under connections it still only says "Ethernet Limited" and I can't use the internet. I'm not sure about any specs to my comp. All I know Is I'm using windows 8 and it's from Toshiba. I know it's not much to go on, but I'm losing my mind and any help would be wonderful. Thank you.

    This picture is how it looks when the cable is, and isn't, plugged in.

    With the cable pulled out, the picture is correct (for a wired Lan Connection).
    When it is attached AND you have access to the Internet, it should not be limited.
    SO, get a command prompt ( start->run and enter CMD ) and enter
    • IPCONFIG /ALL >myTCP.txt
    • then NOTEPAD myTCP.txt
    copy the contents and PASTE that as your follow-up
