Why ca t I connect to internet
Hi I don't know why but I can not connect to .y Internet ive tried WiFi and ethernet can and I can't connect and it couldn't have happened at a worst time as I've just started an online business 3 days ago
Try the following:
Open a Command Window as an Administrator and type the following commands one at a time and then press Enter after each command.
To open a Command window in Win 10, type cmd in the Windows search box on the left side of the Taskbar and click on the run as Administrator option that appears with the Command prompt app.
Note: There is a space before the / symbol but not after, in the commands that have it. Also if you make a typing error you have to backspace and restart typing from where the error was made. It’s old world computing, keyboard only
netsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset
Close the window and restart the laptop and check if you can now access the internet using both WiFi and Ethernet.
# check connecting to a wifi hotspot
Quite a common problem. If you did all that Shiham recommended and still no joy , here are solutions you might try.
1. If using a pc/laptop connected to a wifi router and you are sure your data plan is still valid (ie you have enough data) then try the following : a) Switch off the router (at te plug if necessary) , wait for 60 seconds and power up again and see if it works. If not then:
b) Even if your device recognises your router but still no I/N , click on your I/N icon (bottom right on the service tray) to open the WiFi pane. There you'll see your wifi router listed (normally the top one with the strongest signal icon). In this block look for a button that says “Forget this Network “ Click it.
Now , power off your device , wait a few seconds and power up and wait until device has finished booting up.
Now again click on the I/N icon in the service tray. You will see your router listed. Click the CONNECT button. It will then ask for the router ID/Password or Key. (This is the long alpha - numeric code found on the label underneath the router).
Type this code in EXACTLY as it appears on the label (sometimes there is a button that says Show Password or a small EYE-icon) click on it and it will show what you type in so you can check it's accuracy - instead of just showing black dots.
Then click OK/Next or Connect.
This ought to clear the problem. PS. Don't forget to tick the Automatically Connect box under the settings or preferences button.
