It’s often a confusing and frustrating moment when you’re connected to WiFi but not to the Internet. Over the past few years, we have all encountered the “WiFi connected but no Internet” error, but unfortunately, there is no single solution to fix this. In many cases, it is due to changes in the settings of your operating system or the router, but the cause may not always be so apparent. This means you’ll have to try different fixes to identify the right one. Here are some tested options that’ll fix the WiFi connected but no Internet error.
To identify router problems, connect other devices like your mobile phone to the WiFi and see if it works. If the Internet works fine on other devices, the problem lies with your device and its WiFi adapter. On the other hand, if the Internet doesn’t work on other devices too, then the problem is most likely with the router or the Internet connection itself.
One good way to fix the router is to restart it. Though it may sound silly, the restart flushes the caches and fixes many of the associated network and software problems.
If your router and modem are separate, restart both.
Turn off both of them
Wait for 30 seconds
Turn on the modem and one minute later turn on the router.
Wait for a few minutes and check.
This simple solution will fix many small issues in your router.
