I have a Z10 with ATT running 1.0.2074. The problem I will describe did not happen prior to the latest OS update.
At home - when my z10 connects to my wifi - it shows connected but I get a notification that the wifi is limited and I should connect to another source. The wifi icon is NOT showing in the top bar but ATT LTE, the BB logo and the bars are there.
I have tried a Z10 restart, restarted the router - changed batteries - have run out of options.
I run a web server out of my house so the router is working just fine and if I connect wirelessly with my laptop or tablet, all is well. I do not understand the "limited" notification. The full message says "wifi access is limited. Some websites are not reachable....etc>
edit:this does not happen with my wifi at work.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I am guessing if you look at the IP address on your Blackberry when on your home WiFi you will see something like:
169.X.X.X, which means it did not get assigned an IP address by your router. A simple solution would be to assign a static IP address in the WiFi settings on your Blackberry for your home network.
Other's have reported similar issues with some routers.

I'm having the exact same problem. When I checked the IP address on my BlackBerry it says 169.254.186.76 How do I assign a static IP address in the wifi settings on my BlackBerry for my home network?
Thanks for your help!

I tried entering all the info (ip address, default gateway, dns) manually. It worked for about 3 seconds and I got the message I see 10 times a day. ..Limited access as some websites are unreachable...
What a headache.
