Modem/Router/WiFi connected to PC but no Internet, what to do?

It’s often a frustrating moment when you’re connected to a router/modem/WiFi with your Windows PC, and there is no internet. It may happen with anyone, even with me. Today, my brother called up and said that his internet is not working by any means. He used a different modem/router and even tried with WiFi, but nothing worked, and no internet. Since there was no specific error while trying to browse any website, so we started with scratch.

We did a factory reset on Windows 10 as well router, still, the problem did not solve. The same WiFi was working on the mobile phone; however, there was no internet on the Windows 10 PC.

After struggling with so many options, finally, we got working internet. This issue was with the wrong setup of the network. It automatically got changed by some of the software, which was unknown.

If you are struggling with a similar problem, you can try some of the basic options first, which may help you get a working internet connection. Once you find the internet connection problem on your PC, start with a few basic options. Try to reset the router/modem and check if it works. Connect the PC with another device WiFi/router, check if it works. If your internet starts working with other WiFi/router, which means your first device is faulty. You can even try to disable and enable the network connection.

If your internet connection problem does not get solved, this post will help you a lot.
