Network issues can occur due to various reasons. If you cannot browse the Internet or you are not receiving any emails, it literally means that you are not connected to the network. Whatever the cause is, you can fix the issue with the proper techniques. This article lists the best techniques for Windows 10 computers that fail to connect to a network. Try out all the techniques listed below and fix your issue like a pro.

Check the fundamentals

  • On the right side of your taskbar, click on the No internet connection icon and check whether the Wi-Fi is turned on or not. If you haven’t turned on Wi-Fi, turn it on. 
  • On the same page, check whether you have enabled the Airplane mode. In case you have enabled it, turn it off to fix your network issue.
  • Check whether any issue is with your Internet’s stability. You can check it by connecting a different device to your network. If you find instability with your Internet, fix that issue in the first place.

Try to connect on a different frequency

  • Most routers broadcast two different frequency bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz).
  • Suppose you have connected your computer and the router to the 2.4GHz frequency band, change it to 5GHz frequency band.
  • In the same way, if you have connected your devices on the 5GHz frequency band, change it to 2.4GHz. 
  • If your issue is still not resolved, you can proceed with the following section.

Run the network troubleshooter

  • On your Windows 10 computer, click the Start button.
  • Choose Settings> Network & Internet> Status.
  • Under the Change your network settings section, click the Network troubleshooter button.
  • Go ahead with the troubleshooter, and it usually fixes the problem.

Restart your modem and the router

  • When you restart your modem and the router, your Internet Service Provider will create a new connection. This new connection can fix your network issue on the Windows 10 computer. Follow the instructions given below to proceed further.
  • Disconnect the power cord from your router and the power source.
  • Also, unplug the power cord of your modem from the power source.
  • If your modem has a backup battery, the lights will remain lit even after disconnecting it from the power source. So, make sure to remove the battery from your modem.
  • Leave your modem and the router disconnected for a minute.
  • If you have removed the battery from your modem, reinsert it into its holder.
