    Windows 10 - No Internet, Secured

    So i can connect to my WiFi router, but no internet on my laptop. The WiFi signal icon has a yellow ! icon on top of it.

    I've tried uninstalling the WiFi adapter and restarting the router but still no luck.

    All my other devices can connect with no issues.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    I had this before but can't remember the life of me how I fixed it...it drove me crazy. I think it was a setting in the network section..was like a slider...it tell you what I'll go have a look

    I had this same issue. Mine was windows 10 conflicting with the wifi drivers. They had to be manually updated due to the window 10 updates constantly screwing it up

    Can't even connect via ethernet either.

    Diagnostics keeps saying doesn't have a valid IP configuration

    Try right click on Wi-Fi icon and click troubleshoot
    If it gets to rest wireless adaptor you will be reconnected
    Common problem with win10

    have you set yourself a static IP?
    try cmd and typing ipconfig to see if you are getting an IP address from router either land or wifi

    Happened to me use this window 10 wifi problem
    also make sure that you haven't switched the wifi button to off by accident as there maybe a button on your laptop!

    ​Tried most of that too. I haven't changed anything to cause this. Was working fine this morning.

    Try:
    Power off your W10 PC, Laptop or gizmo that has problem.
    Turn off the mains supply to your router for 30 seconds.
    Power on and wait for the router to reboot and connect to your wifi stuff that works ok.
    Power on the W10 kit.
    (I had a new ChromeCast 2 that wouldn't/couldn't successfully connect until I rebooted my Virgin Superhub
    Connected in a flash afterwards. No problems since.)

    God dam! This is winding me up now. Just a thought did you try Microsoft fix it program off there website? It's quite good at fixing these things

    Happened to me a couple of days ago. Restarted router and laptop but just wouldn't connect. So i just tethered from my mobile. But in the morning laptop and internet was fine. I only just seen this issue in the last week. Before I never experienced it.

    I can't download anything as the laptop can't get internet. Don't have another PC to download it.

    A long shot but your DHCP server on the router may have run out of addresses.

    Go into your router settings and see if you can increase the amount of devices within a section called DHCP.

    If that doesn't work try setting a manual IP address just to eliminate the problem. A DHCP server will aloocate your device & IP address which expires after a set amount of time. On your laptop it may have expired but not expired on your other devices, hence the issues only happening on your laptop.

    I have a BT Smarthub. No idea how to do it via that.

    I did split my network last week to 2.4 and 5.0, but that's been ok on my laptop recently.

    Try:
    Via Command Prompt in Admin mode
    Netsh
    winsock reset
    Reboot

    ​Done, no luck!

    This happened to me a couple of times on moving my laptop from upstairs to downstairs. Connected wirelessly and router downstairs. Went frantic looking for a solution. In the end I did a system restore and it worked again. Don't know why!

    I have the same issue, not spent any time trying to fix it yet but found this I was going to go through answers.microsoft.com/en-…e09
    Also use McAfee.....

    I had this and I put my first through my laptop so had 2 go and buy a new 1 the next day which put me £469 outta pocket so whatever you do keep calm lol

    Not an HP by any chance is it.

    It only happens using win10 and only recently did it start playing up
    Microsoft release updates and it's these that mess up the system sometimes.
    The last time it conflicted with McAfee & AVG so I got rid of both and now use windows defender

    ​Yeah it's a HP

    Do you have the latest drivers for the ethernet and wifi?

    Original Poster

    Nothing's changed in terms of the drivers though. Was fine up until now.

    Nope, but thanks.

    right click your wifi icon in bottom right 'open network and sharing centre'
    under your active networks or the one you are trying to connect to does it say 'public network' ?

    Only thing left to do now is either reset the smart hub or laptop to factory settings.

    longshot..Some HP laptops have a physical switch on the side to enable/disable wifi.
