What does a "limited" connection status mean?

I purchased a new windows 8 laptop about two days ago and i cannot get it to stay connected to the wireless internet for more than 5 or 10 minutes. The connection status changes from "connected" to "limited". I have a full signal strength but cannot do anything on the internet when this happens. I have to disconnect from the router then reconnect in order to regain connection for a short time before the same thing happens again. All of my other devices in my home can connect to the wireless internet perfectly. How do i fix this?
