How to Solve WiFi Problems that You May Encounter

1. No Internet while WiFi is Connected

Sometimes it may seem that your computer is connected via WiFi, but no matter how many times you try, it just can’t access the web or any applications that require a network. Mostly, this problem is caused by faulty IP address, TCP/IP stack, or DNS client resolver cache.


2. The System Doesn’t Connect to WiFi

Sometimes the system will prompt a message that says “Windows 10 can’t connect to this network” while you are trying to establish a connection. That may be caused by your adapter, so try to uninstall and then reinstall the adapter driver or update / roll back the adapter driver.

3. Invalid IP Configuration

If you get a “Wi-Fi Doesn’t Have a Valid IP Configuration” prompt, try entering the commands in Command Prompt (See How to Open the Command Prompt in Windows 10):

netsh winsock reset
ipconfig /release
netsh int ip reset
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns

If the problem lingers after that, you should try to change the network name & password or set the channel of the WiFi.

4. No WiFi Found

Sometimes your computer may not be able to find your WiFi network. First, you should make sure that your router is powered on and you are within the range of the wireless signals. Then, try to change the “Country and Region” of your WiFi adapter. Not all WiFi adapters allow you to change the country and region.

5. Lost/Forgotten Password

Sometimes you may lose your WiFi password or forget it form some reason. You may be able to get access to the WiFi network without typing it because it is remembered by the system. But what if you need to reinstall or restore the system, having to wipe out all the saved passwords? You must get your saved password back first.
