When using the Wi-Fi network connection, you may encounter different kinds of issues like Wi-Fi connected but no internet. When your Wi-Fi is not working, do you know what to do to fix it?
First, let’s talk about this issue. Wi-Fi connected no internet has two main situations.
- Wi-Fi is not working on only one device.
- All devices are connected to Wi-Fi but no internet.
The solutions we will introduce in this post are focusing on these two situations. You can identify your case and select a suitable solution.
Wi-Fi Is Not Working on Only One Device
If only one of your Wi-Fi connected devices has the internet access issue, you can merely focus on that device to fix the issue. That is, there is no need to restart the router or the access point because other devices can connect to the Wi-Fi connection. It is a special device that has issues.
How to Fix Wi-Fi Is Not Working on Only One Device?
- Flush DNS
- Set a fixed DNS server
- Reset the IP address
- Update driver
Set a Fixed DNS Server
Wi-Fi connected but no internet only on one device is usually a DNS server related issue. If the above method is not useful for you, you can consider setting a fixed DNS server.
Here is how to do this work:
- Right-click the Wireless working icon from the taskbar.
- Click Network & Internet Settings.
- Click your Wi-Fi network name and select Properties.
- Click Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
- Click Properties.
- Select Use the following DNS server addresses.
- Enter 8.8.8 for Preferred DNS server and 188.8.131.52 for Alternative DNS server.
- Click OK to save the settings.
Then, you can close all windows and check whether you can use the Wi-Fi network connection successfully on that device.
Reset the IP Address
Another useful method is resetting IP address. You can just reboot your computer to reset the IP address. Of course, you can also manually reset IP address.
If the driver on your computer is outdated, you can also encounter the issue of Wi-Fi connected but no internet. Thus, you can update the driver for your wireless network adapter.
- Use Windows Search to search for device manager and select the first result to open it.
- Expand Network adapters.
- Right-click Wireless network adapter and select Update driver software.
- Click Search automatically for updated driver software.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to update that driver.
All Devices Are Connected to Wi-Fi but No Internet
If Wi-Fi connected no internet happens to all connected devices, you need to use other methods to solve the issue. You can check the router or access point to see whether it is the cause. If everything is OK but the issue persists, you can restart the router to have a try.
However, if this method doesn’t work, you can make a simple check: you can check if DHCP is disabled. If not, there may be IP conflicts that can cause Wi-Fi connected but no internet.
These are the methods to fix Wi-Fi connected no internet. Just try them to help you out.
