So your WiFi connection is working perfectly with other devices but there is no internet connection only in your Windows 10 PC?
Well, what can you do now? This is something which I have experienced in the past multiple times as well. You know, you see that yellow triangular icon which says “No internet, Secured“.
There are two possible issues which can affect your PC’s internet connection in this situation. And these two are…
- Either a few wrong adjustments are made in your PC (The first six methods)
- There is a problem with your router (The last two methods)
And in this guide, I’m gonna go in depth on how you can tackle these two classes of problems in your Windows 10 computer.
That too not in one but eight different ways. So without a further ado, let’s jump into the various methods which you can implement to fix this issue of your Windows 10 PC connected to the WiFi network but no internet.
If there are a few modifications needed with your PC
There might be problems inside your Windows 10 computer which might cause this problem of having no internet connection even though your computer is connected to the WiFi. So you might need to make a few changes to your Windows 10 PC to tackle this problem.
And for that, I have bought you not one but six different methods which you can try and implement to fix this problem once and for all.
So without a further ado, let’s jump straight into them!
Method 1: Use your Command Prompt to fix no internet connection when connected to Wifi (The Best Way)
This is the first and also probably the best method of all which we will mention in this guide of ours. It is by using the command prompt.
This method has shown more success rates than any of the methods which we will mention above. You simply type in a few codes in your command prompt and you’re good to go.
If you haven’t heard about the command prompt before, well, it is a simple application where you can type in various commands and your computer will perform them. You can learn more about it by going here.
And in this guide, I’m gonna show you not one but two techniques on how to tackle this problem where it shows “No internet, secured“.
So without a further ado, let us jump into the methods where we fix this problem of “No internet, secured” even though your computer is connected to wifi.
The first thing you do is open up your command prompt. You can do this by simply going to your search box and type in “CMD” or “Command Prompt”. And then you right click on the app and “run as administrator“.
After that, you type in the following codes there…
Firstly you type in
netsh winsock reset catalog
And then you press enter on your keyboard.
After that, you type in
netsh int ip reset reset.log
And press enter.
Then you simply restart your Windows 10 computer and hopefully, you will see your internet connection working again when connected to your wifi.
But what if it still doesn’t work out?
Technique no. 2
Well, several people have tried the first technique but couldn’t get success. So I’ve bought you another technique which you can implement to fix your internet connection by using your CMD or Command Prompt.
Just follow the above steps…
So you type in “Command Prompt” or “CMD” again in your search box and right click on the application and “Run as administrator”.
And then type in the following codes…
Firstly you type in
netsh winsock reset all
Then you type in
netsh int tcp reset all
After that, you type in
netsh int ipv4 reset all
And then you type in
netsh int ipv6 reset all
And then you type in
netsh int httpstunnel reset all
And in the end, you type in this code…
You simply paste the codes we mentioned one by one and press enter every time.
After finishing all of them you restart your PC again.
And hopefully, you will no longer see the “No internet, secured” signal even though you are connected to your wifi connection 😀
Method 2: Reset your networks if you still see no internet connection
If you tried the first method but still you see no success and you still are experiencing no internet connection although your Windows 10 PC is still connected to your Wifi. Then this method might come in handy. It is a simple process of resetting all your wifi networks and setting it back to default.
But before we begin this process make sure you properly know your wifi password because once you implement this method your wifi network will be forgotten by your PC. And if you don’t know your wifi password, then you can check this guide of ours on how to find saved wifi password in Windows 10.
So let’s jump straight into the process.
Firstly click on the little Windows icon in the bottom left and then go to your Windows settings by simply clicking on that gear icon which you see over there.
And then you will open up a new tab. From there you go this option named as “Network & Internet”.
From there go to the status menu. After that, scroll a bit down and you will see this option named as “Network reset”.
Click on that option and you’ll be taken to another page. And then you click on the “Reset now” option. If you get any requests asking for your permission after you click on that option simply accept them.
After that, you simply restart your Windows 10 PC and hopefully, you will no longer face the obstacle of not having an internet connection although your PC is still connected to the WiFi.
Method 3: Check if your WiFi network is disabled
This is pretty simple but yet powerful. You might make a few wrong switches in your Windows 10 PC and probably disable your network adapter options. Which will then lead to no internet even if your PC is connected to the WiFi.
To fix this issue, simply go through the following steps…
Firstly you right click on your Windows icon (the one situated in the bottom left). And then click on this option named “Network Connections”.
Then you might see this option called “Change adapter options”. And so you click on that.
After that, you will see your wifi network appear and you might see it identified as “Disabled”.
Simply right click on your network adapter options and then left click on the “enable” option
After that, you will see your internet connection back to normal again. But if it is not the case then we have other alternatives to this problem which we mention down below. Stay tuned!
Method 4: Change your power settings if there is no internet connection when connected to wifi
This is an easy method where you simply change your power options in your Windows 10 computer to fix this problem of not having your internet connection when connected to the wifi.
Simply go through the steps we mention above…
Firstly you go to your search box and type in “power options“. And then you click on the “Power & sleep settings“.
And then on your regular power settings tab, you will see this option on the right side named “Additional power settings“.
So you left click on that and then you will be taken to another page.
Then you click on this option named “change plan settings“.
There you will see this another option named “Change advanced power settings“. So you click on that.
And then you will see another new tab open up.
You will see this option named as “Wireless Adapter Settings“, you click on that. And after that, you click on this option named as “Power saving mode“. Then you make the following changes…
On battery: Maximum Performance
Plugged in: Maximum Performance
And then you save the changes and refresh your PC once and hopefully, you won’t see your PC with no internet even though its connected to the wifi.
Method 5: Change your network adapter settings
Even if you tried the first four methods which we have mentioned above and none of them worked out and you still have no internet access although your computer is connected to the wifi…
Well, don’t worry because hopefully, this method will work out for you. In this method, you simply make a few changes to your network adapter settings in your computer and fix this issue of no internet connection once and for all.
Simply take the following actions…
First of all, you simply right click on the “wireless icon” in your bottom right. And then click on this option which says “Open Network & Internet Settings”.
After that, you will be taken to another tab. From there you go to the “Status” menu and under that, you will see this option called “Change adapter options” and you click on that.
And then you right click on your individual wifi network and then click on this option called “properties”.
From there you will be taken to another new tab. You then click on this option named “Configure”.
You then go to this option named “Power Management” on the top.
And you uncheck this option named as “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”.
After that, you accept the changes and then simply restart your Windows 10 PC and you are good to go.
Method 6: Update your wireless network adapter
A method which is pretty simple and easy to implement if you are suffering from having no internet although your Windows 10 computer is connected to the wifi. You can simply use the device manager in your Windows 10 and make a few changes in there and get your wifi connection up and running.
Simply right click on the Windows icon (The one in the bottom left again). And then you click on this option named as “device manager”. After clicking on that option you will open up another new tab.
From there, you click on this option named as “network adapters”.
Then you simply right-click your network adapter over there (It can differ depending on your computer) and click on “update driver”.
Once you are done with that you will open up a new tab and there you will click on this option which says “Search automatically for updated driver software”
And then your PC will automatically search for an updated driver for your Windows 10 computer and install it.
Then it will update your network adapter again (You simply restart your PC again and you will hopefully see your internet connection working perfectly).
If there are adjustments needed with your router
Well, it’s not necessary that there are mistakes only in your PC which is causing the “No internet, Secured” signal although you are connected to your wifi.
You might have a few problems with your wifi router instead. In most cases, if there are problems in your wifi router, well, you might have to consider buying a new one.
But you can still try the two methods which we mention above in case if it works out.
Method 1: Unplug your router’s socket if there is yet no internet
This is a simple method which you can implement to get back your Windows 10 PC’s internet connection back and running when connected to the wifi.
All you do is follow the above steps…
Firstly you unplug your wifi router’s socket.
After that, you keep your socket unplugged for around five to ten minutes.
And then you turn it back on again and hopefully, it might work out.
Method 2: Reset your router
This is another solution which you can try to fix this problem. You simply reset your router and hopefully it gets back and running again.
And you can watch the video above which shows you step by step on how you can reset your router pretty easily 😀
Personally, I prefer the command prompt method as this has the highest success ratio. But you can try the other options if it doesn’t work out. And please do let me know if any of these methods worked for you by commenting down below 😉
So I hope you tried the methods we mentioned and benefited from this article of ours. And hopefully, your internet connection is running smoothly when connected to your wifi connection by now.
If you still haven’t gotten your internet connection even though you are still connected to the wifi, then, there might be a few problems in your router instead and you might have to buy a new one.
