  2. Laptop apps (Settings, Etc) say not connected to network or internet but browser connects to home network and internet

    Thanks for the response, Greg.

    I re-registered apps per your suggestion.

    Didn't fix problem.

    The problem seems related to built-in system apps --I.E Settings, Network and Internet Settings, Windows Updates, List of available wifi networks, etc.

    None of those apps recognize my connection to LAN network and internet connection.

    However, the list of available wifi networks does show I'm connected to my home wifi connection, but says no internet connection.

    I can't perform any Settings functions or anything which requires internet connection because the built-in app thinks it's not connected to internet.

    But, my Firefox browser has full internet and LAN connection and abilities.

    I appreciate any thing you can recommend.

    Also note I keep getting a "notification" that my Microsoft account needs attention. It directs me to Shared Experiences" to fix the problem. I try to fix from there but it fails due to "No internet connection"

    I have checked my Microsoft account via browser access and finf no highlighted problem in my account.

    Regards,

    Richard

  3. After upgrading to Windows 10, Edge is the only app that can connect to the internet

    Hi ,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    With the issue description it seems like Edge is unable to connect to network.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and see if it helps:

    Set Internet Explorer as default browser

    I suggest you to set Internet Explorer as default web browser and restart the computer and see if it helps.

    Disable Proxy

    Sometimes using proxy to connect to the internet may cause issues while connecting to the network.

    Follow the steps below to disable proxy:

    • Press “Windows Key” + “R”.
    • Type “inetcpl.cpl”.
    • Go to Connection.
    • Click on LAN Settings.
    • Check the box which says Automatically detect settings.
    • Uncheck the box under Proxy server.

    Run Internet Connection Troubleshooter

    Though you are able to use internet, there could be some problems or some settings which could have stopped Windows services to connect to the internet.

    I suggest you to run the Internet connection troubleshooter to fix such issues, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R
    • Type Control
    • Click on Troubleshooting
    • Click on Connect to the internet
    • Click on Next and follow the On-screen instructions

    Hope this helps, get back to us if you need further assistance.

    Apps don't connect to the internet only my browser does

    After upgrading to windows 10, internet connectivity drops frequently for some applications, but not all

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply. My answers are interleaved with your questions.

    • In which browser are you facing this issue e.g. Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer?
    Multiple browsers: Chrome, Explorer, Firefox

    • Do you get any error message?
      • In Chrome, I get "ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE" as the error message
    • Have you installed all pending Windows updates?
      • Yes. It is continuously getting updated.
    • Do you face connection fluctuation in Ethernet connection?
      • No. The internet connection is a solid 40Mb downlink. The same problem occurs when I'm hooked to a different internet service provider.
    • Is the issue specific to any particular website?
      • No, it occurs when I'm accessing multiple web sites. It is not related to any web site.

    I suggest you to try connecting to Ethernet connection and check if face same issue.

    The problem occurs when I'm using wired ethernet, an internal wifi card, or an external wifi usb dongle.

    Also install all pending Windows updates I.

    I just checked it . It is up to date.

    Further you can refer the link below and follow the troubleshooting steps suggested.

    I'm not going to spend time on these other steps, since as I mentioned it occurs on multiple browsers, and it is not tied to Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge, unless you give me a good reason to do so.

    Thank you.
