    My laptop has a “No Internet, Secured” issue that I can’t fix. I did lots of troubleshooting (Turned off my anti-virus and firewall), reinstalled the network adapter, restarted my laptop a million times. My phone connects to the networks fine. Even when I plug in my iPhone to try to do hotspot, it doesn’t even list my phone as a network. So there’s some sort of blockage happening I don’t understand. I’ve attached the error image. Any recs?

    To be clear, the laptop shows it's connected, but web pages won't open?

    If that's correct, then the issue is most likely the browser you're using, or your antivirus. Try another internet browser and see what happens. If you're using the built in Windows Defender antivirus, that won't break your internet connection, but certain other antivirus programs are known to cause internet issues.

    Adding to Seth's comments, if you're connecting wirelessly, try the wired (Ethernet) connection. If that doesn't work, try Safe Mode with networking. You should use the wired connection for that. Let us know what version of Windows you're running so we can give instruction on how to get to Safe Mode with networking.

    No, the laptop itself will not connect. I turned off firewall, and I have windows defender (which seemingly I can’t turn off), nothing worked. Just tried again, the network is fine, there’s something up with my laptop.

    In your search box, start typing "command prompt". When it appears, right click on it and choose "Run as Administrator". Type in the following:


    1. Type "ipconfig /flushdns" and press Enter.
    2. Type "ipconfig /registerdns" and press Enter.
    3. Type "ipconfig /release" and press Enter.
    4. Type "ipconfig /renew" and press Enter.
    5. Type "netsh winsock reset" and press Enter


      Restart the computer laptop and see what happens. If that doesn't work, see if the laptop connects in Safe Mode With Networking. If it doesn't, you might have to purchase a USB wireless adapter.
