What does IPv4 Connectivity = Not Connected mean in network connection properties in Windows (Windows 8 Professional)?

This will say "Not Connected", "Limited Access", "Local Only", or "Internet Access" according to what Windows' Network Location Awareness features have found out about your connection when it was initialized.

How this state can be achieved?

"Not Connected" would mean that DHCP didn't work, APIPA didn't work, and/or Nlasvc could not make a connection to the Microsoft NCSI server to verify external connectivity.

(I'm going to try to find some definitive documentation on this if possible to verify this.)

How to stop APIPA and/or Nlasvc on the machine to achieve the state? –  Suzan Cioc Oct 3 '13 at 22:33
