    Unable to connect to public Wifi, windows 10


    Hi guys,
    I had a look around and tried different solutions proposed but so far nothing solved. I also searched on this forum, but still nothing useful found. If I missed the right topic, I'm sorry, I'll provide to erase this asap.

    My problem is that I'm not able to access internet in every public/free wifi connection that requires no password. No problem at all when I access to a protect wifi, everything runs as is supposed to be.
    But when I try to connect to open wifi, I have no internet connection. So yes, I can see the name of the public wifi, connect to it but still have no internet, while people around me have no problem. (it says: no interne, open)

    It doesn't even appear the pop up page to accept the conditions.

    I've tried disable the firewall, the antivirus and many extensions that I thought could interfere with it (as AdBlock)
    I have other extension as WOT, Lastpass, ProxFlow and Mailtrack. But on Chrome, so I thought, there should be no problem for Internet Eplorer.


    Thanks in advance,
    and let me know if i should tell sometime more about my pc (please try not to be too technic, I use my laptop a lot, but I'm no expert)

    :)

    Unable to connect to public Wifi

    I am able to connect to the WiFi at my home, but I am unable to connect to the WiFi at my local library. Before the windows 10 update my laptop was able to connect to the library WiFi, but now it's not. I know its not the library's WiFi fault because I
    am still able to connect to the library's WiFi with my phone.

    Try to Reset your WiFi : Settings>Network & Internet>Network Reset. You will lose all the Passwords and Config. Windows will reboot ,but it waits 5 min. to do it.
    Try to Reset Firewall: Control Panel>Firewall>Restore Defaults . There is also an Option "Troubleshoot my Network"
    Try the Troubleshooter: Control Panel>Troubleshooting>View All>Internet Connection

    Public hotspots usually require a Captive Portal login to gain access. It is not just connect and hop online to a free ride on the Internet.
