Fix “No Internet, Secured” WiFi Error
If you ever see this error on your PC while you’re connected to the internet but still unable to access, these are some ways you can try to fix the issue. Don’t worry, it’s a common issue and is super easy to fix.
Solution 1: Restarting your Router
Now, this is the first solution which helped many according to a Quora discussion. The processor goes like this.
- Forget your WiFi network in the system tray.
- Turn on Airplane mode.
- Restart your router.
- Restart your PC.
- Reconnect to your WiFi network again by putting the password.
This is a quick solution which might help but it isn’t guaranteed. But there’s nothing to worry about, I got some other awesome ways which should help no matter what. 😀
Restarting your router can have a few advantages like decreasing your ping which is a great way to have a more stable connection and avoid timeouts.
Solution 2: Command Prompt (Preferred)
You can reset your IP configuration as well as your adapter which must help. For me, the solution 1 failed but this Command Prompt trick did the work.
- Open Command Prompt as admin.
- Use the commands listed below one by one.
- Restart your PC.
These are the following commands you need to use one-by-one:
- netsh int ip reset
- netsh winsock reset all
- netsh int tcp reset all
- netsh int ipv4 reset all
- netsh int ipv6 reset all
- netsh int httpstunnel reset all
- ipconfig /flushdns
I recommend the Command Prompt method which is quick and much easier. It’s as simple as opening CMD and pasting the commands one by one and restarting your PC, that’s it! 😉
Solution 3: Changing Adapter Settings
According to my friend who is using Windows 10, fixed the “No Internet, Secured” error using this fix. It’s just disabling the IPv6 from the ‘Change Adapter Settings‘ in Network and Sharing Center.
- Go to Network and Sharing Center.
- Click on ‘Change Adapter Settings‘ on the sidebar.
- Right click on your WiFi adapter and click on Properties.
- Then uncheck IPv6 from the list of protocols.
You can see the image above which tells what to do exactly. Your adapter might not have all the protocols, which is totally normal. Just make sure, you disable the IPv6 from the list. 😉
These three solutions will help you with the “No Internet, Secured” WiFi error in Windows 10. Even after being connected to the internet, you might not be able to access it just because of some IP configuration issues or even an adapter issues.
But as you can see, it’s pretty simple. I love recommending the solution 2 which works all the time, no matter what. This works for Windows 7 as well.
This fix works for all the Windows 10 connection issues such as being connected to WiFi but no internet. 😉
