    Computer says no internet but I have internet?


    Hello, I am having an issue with my desktop computer. It's running the latest version of Windows 10 in conjunction with an internet connection via ethernet cable and OpenVPN. When I am not connected to the VPN, the computer correctly recognizes that I have an internet connection. However, once I connect to the VPN, it then says there's no internet. This is not true, as I can load websites without any issue and remote into computers on my work's network. I would normally just ignore this since it is actually working, but the fact that the computer thinks I'm offline is causing some connectivity issues with other programs I use.


    I've tried ensuring my ethernet driver is up to date, Windows 10 itself is up to date, and trying all sorts of troubleshooting from manually configuring the internet connections, release/renew the IP address, running the internet troubleshoot feature in Windows 10 it always says it can't detect the issue but suggests I reset the network settings, which doesn't fix the problem, even disabling the firewall to see if something's being blocked. I'm at a total loss as to what the issue could be.

    :)

    Hi Mark,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that applications show that you are not connected to Internet. I’ll certainly help you with this issue.



    However, please let us know:



    • How is the computer connected to Internet i.e. Ethernet or Wi-Fi?
    • Are you aware of any changes made on the computer prior to this issue?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 is installed on the computer? To check type:
      winver in the search bar on the Taskbar and hit
      Enter.


    I would suggest you to try changing the network connection i.e. if the computer is connected to Internet through Wi-Fi, try using Ethernet and check if that helps.



    You may also want to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the article
    Fix network connection issues in Windows.



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare
