Like all problems, never jump to conclusion. Always diagnose the problem using a simple ‘what if’ method. If your device cannot connect to the internet, what about your PC?

If both can’t, perhaps it is the wireless router and etc. Simple troubleshooting but I’ve seen too many people jumping to conclusion when their internet connection fails.

Can’t connect to your internet? If you’re having problem connecting to the internet while your other devices is able to connect to the internet, chances are, your proxy setting is configured wrongly or it is switched ‘on’. Now, a proxy server is a server that acts as an intermediary between your computer and other servers. If this is the case where your operating system be it Windows, Mac OS or Linux is configured to use a proxy, the solution is to reset it. Here is a simple tutorial for Microsoft Windows 10.

  • Step 5 – Check ‘Automatically Detect Settings’
  • Step 6 – Click ‘Ok’ to save the changes
  • If you use a proxy server, check your proxy settings or check with your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working. If you don’t believe you should be using a proxy server.
