FAQ – No Internet Secured Windows 10
1. Wifi repeated the phrase “No Internet, Secured” every time it was used on two different Windows-based laptops. This is since the latest update (Aug 2019,
Hello All, I am having a persistent issue with my laptops making the exact same error since the latest round of Windows updates (August 2019). Both devices periodically claim to be connected to WiFi but show the message “No Internet, Secured” in the network settings. Although it is possible to fix the problem 100% of the times, it can happen again in minutes. It happens so frequently it is frustrating. The problem was not present on both devices before the update. After trying many fixes, it still persists.
Note* None windows-based equipment doesn’t have such issues.
YouTube won’t let you watch 3 minutes of video without it saying “No Internet, Secured” and you having to manually disconnect and reconnect. I tried 3 different wifi locations, and had the same issue. It is not my home network. There are 2 PS4’s and Switches, 2 Tablets and 2 Tablets connected to the Network. All of them have no issues with service. Due to signal issues, we have paid for subscriptions that we won’t use (e.g., WWE Network, Netflix and Amazon Prime).

3. Secured internet not available – please
My laptop is having trouble connecting to its wifi. It shows up, and I can connect, but then it says “no internet, secure” so I can’t use it for money or love.
My phone can still connect to the internet as usual, and so I think it is my laptop that is the problem and not the router/modem.
It also connects and works when I hotspot my phone.
This has been my problem for many days. I tried so many online methods, but none of them worked. I am now ready to share the solution.
Windows 10 No Internet Secured Windows 10
My HP beat ONE with Windows 10 blue-screened a few years back. After I urged it to copy and execute, the problem was with the wifi. It might connect with the router but not the internet. If it does, it may show the message “No Internet Secured”. This is what I do when I add IT.
- Reset network adaptors
- I installed Intel network drivers on another computer (with internet access), and then tried to install via USB on HP Beat One.
- Restart to install network drivers.
- Have you tried rolling back updates to an older update?
- Disabled/re-enabled WiFi Adaptors
- Reset TCP/IP Stack via CMD
- To rule out router issues, I tried the personal mobile hotspot (but it didn’t work).
- To rule out, I tried to connect via coaxial cable (wouldn’t connect via Ethernet)
- Reset my PC
- I downloaded Windows 10 Fresh Image from Microsoft website. Then, I used a disc to insert the media onto my PC.
- I tried to restore the computer, but there were no restore points.
- Many CMD actions were performed, including ipconfig/release/renew.
- Disabled IPv6
- Restarted DHCP Service
