  1. I can browse the Internet but it says i'm not connected.


    I'm connected to the internet and I can browse on internet, play online games and install programs. However it says I'm not connected to the network this stops me from downloading new network updates or logging onto adobe to do work. Sometimes when the PC is shutdown and turned back on the computer refuses to connect to the network and I have to keep rebooting the PC till it connects. I've search all over to see if anyone else has this problem but no one seems to have this happen to them. I've tried everything including factory reset. Is there anyway I can solve this problem or do I need to take it to a professional to fix?


    Thanks for any feedback.

    Network Settings says No Internet Connection, But...


    But I'm currently browsing the internet and typing to you.

    In fact - I can do virtually everything (League; Steam; Skype; etc) except use any OS feature that requires logging in - e.g. Mail, User Accounts, Shop, etc. Then it says something along the lines of "Cannot use this service without an internet connection - please connect and try again." When I run Network Diagnostics as the prompt recommends - it says I am connected and cannot find a problem.

    It doesn't always happen - but it seems to be determined on start-up. If I restart it now it might be working next launch - but 75% of the time it will encounter the same issue. It's been happening for months now but I've sort of gotten used to using my phone to check my emails - but I've now encountered an issue with one of my hard drives being unable to be searched (tried indexing, etc) and the only step I've found that I haven't tried says it could be a corrupted user account - but I cannot update my user account without "connecting to the internet". -_-

    The system is up to date. No driver updates available.

    Step 2: Run Internet 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.
