  1. Internet says it is connected but won't work


    Summary: My windows 10 computer says the network has internet access, but I can't actually access anything on the internet. I know the internet is working because I have multiple other devices connecting, including a windows 7 computer. The computer can also see each other over the network.

    The computer connects via an ethernet connection.

    Things I have tried:
    ipconfig/release
    ipconfig/renew
    ipconfig/flushdns
    ipconfig/registerdns
    resetting the modem
    safe mode with network
    system restore

    Background: Windows 10 had been running well until about a week ago. I had a momentary power outage and lost internet access to all devices. I was able to reconnect most things via restarting. The windows 10 computer didn't reconnect until I did the ipconfig/renew command. I had no other problems until the computer stopped connecting two days ago.

    I'm not sure if the event is related.

    At the moment I'm not sure of what else to try except uninstalling/reinstalling windows, but I'm hoping to avoid that step.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    :)

  2. Connected to the Wifi, but it says "No Internet, Secured".

    You said that you already tried connecting to a Wifi connection when you picked it up, yes? because this is a new connection to their Wifi that's why it worked. This might be a problem with the wifi's domain. I suggest you contact your ISP to reconfigure
    it, it's possible that the IP on your laptop was not recognized by the domain.

  3. Connected to the Wifi, but it says "No Internet, Secured".

    I recently got my laptop fixed and got windows 10 installed. I connected to wifi when I went to pick it up and it was fine. Once I got home and tried to connect it did, but I can't go online. I can only use the ethernet cable and that's it.

    I've tried

    1 Restarting

    2 netsh cmd stuff

    3 Unistalling and Reinstalling Wireless Adapter Driver

    4 Changing Wifi Channels

    5 services.msc and renew ip

    The wifi works on all my other devices except my laptop.

    This is basically all it tells me that is wrong.
