One of the biggest problems Windows 10 users face these days are the constant updates Microsoft issues for the OS. While these updates solve certain problems, they actually come with issues of their own. For example, some users find themselves unable to connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot after an update.
In these situations, the user usually sees the notorious “No Internet, Secured” message flashing on their screen. If you ever faced this problem, you probably didn’t know how to solve it. But don’t worry, there are certain things you can do to troubleshoot this particular problem.
How to Fix the No Internet Secured Issue
Assuming you’re usually using a secure network at your office or home, the No Internet, Secured message probably appears because of improperly configured IP. Chances are, someone – or possibly something – accidentally changed the settings.
You should start by updating your NA driver. In some situations, this will resolve the problem instantly. However, if this falls through, here’s what you can do:
FIX #1 – Running the Network Adapter Troubleshooter can solve your problem.
Go to your Control Panel, find All Control Panel Items, and click on Troubleshooting. There, you just need to click on Network and internet, and your PC will start scanning and looking for issues. Typically, your built-in diagnostics will detect the problem with your network and solve it automatically.
FIX #2 – If the first thing doesn’t help, you’ll need to change your Adapter settings.
Stay in the same window, but click on Network and Sharing Center. Once a new window opens, you’ll see the Properties of the Network Adapter. You’ll just need to find the adapter you’re using at the moment. Look if the TCP/IPv6 is listed in the options – if it is, open it and uncheck it to disable it.
Lastly, restart your PC and see if the Internet is working.
And if that doesn’t help, you’ll need to delete the Network Adapter manually. That will make your Operation System add a new one the next time you turn on your PC. In order to delete the Network Adapter, you need to press both the Win and X keys at the same time. Then, click on Device Manager. That should give you a list of various devices connected to your computer. Find the Network device, click the right mouse button on the device, and select the Uninstall option.
