    Dongle is working properly but showing no internet

    Hi Monica,

    Just to clarify, are you using a WiFi dongle to connect to the internet instead of the built in WiFi adapter of your device? Or are you using a desktop PC and is the WiFi dongle to connect to the internet? For now, what we can suggest is to follow all of
    the recommended troubleshooting steps on this article to resolve the issue. Be sure to click
    Show all to see all of the instructions. Please follow all of the recommended so we could troubleshoot further.

    If the issue would still persist after doing all of the steps, please answer these questions:

    • What is the make and model of your device?
    • Were there any updates/changes to your device prior to the issue happening?

    We'll be waiting for your updates.

    Solution 1: No Internet Access In Windows 8.1or Windows 10

    Step 1:

    Go to Device Manager → Network adapters.
    Step 2:

    Expand it (Network adapters).


    Step 3:

    Select your network adapter


    Step 4:

    Right click on your wireless network adapter or Ethernet adapter and then tap “Update Driver Software”.
    (in this case your network adopter is Ethernet adopter so tap your Ethernet adapter)
    Step 5:

    Now on a new window you will need to click on “Browse my computer for driver software”.

    Bluetooth Dongles and Adapters

    "Dongle" is a common term for anything that plugs into a port on a computer and can refer to USB to Ethernet adapter, USB to Bluetooth, wireless mouse, wireless keyboard, etc. Basically, Bluetooth is a short range wireless versus the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac flavors of Networking. Looking on the Internet shows the CSR4 as a Bluetooth 4 adapter, might check if the newer Bluetooth 5 may be necessary.
