Has Anyone solved this??

Hi BillG64 and thanks for reaching out. My name is Joseph. I'm an independent advisor. I'll be happy to help you out today.

I would suggest you refer to the below options and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

Option 1. Initial Troubleshooting (Recommended)

1. Disconnect to your Wifi SSID.
2. Turn off and unplug your ISP modem or router for one minute.
3. Plug back in and turn on your ISP modem or router.
4. Connect back again to your Wifi SSID.
5. Check to see whether or not the problem has been resolved.

Option 2. Run commands to reset the internet network.

1. Open CMD as an administrator.
2. Type in the following commands.

ipconfig /release <press Enter>
ipconfig /renew <press Enter>
ipconfig /flushdns <press Enter>
ipconfig /registerdns <press Enter>
nbtstat -rr <press Enter>
netsh int ip reset all <press Enter>
netsh winsock reset <press Enter>

Option 3. Fix Ethernet Not Working in Windows 10.

Option 4. Restore from a system restore point.

This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time, called a system restore point. Restore points are generated when you install a new app or driver, and when you create a restore point manually. Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore point was made.

Zero, and I have been thru the Windows Troubleshooting,,, and the CMD line stuff for the past two days and nothing helps. This is a known Bug in Windows 10 as you can go online with google and find its true. So what is the real fix besides reinstalling Windows and wiping the HD? Anybody??

All the other "dead end" do nothing help posts did nothing. I DID not find the fix the smart guys did !!

Thanks a lot BillG64 for the solution.

It's strange, how such a bug can continue to exist for so long (first encountered and applied this fix 2 months back and now again). And more strange is these responses from support. I'm sure if you didn't point out this solution, this thread would go on and on without any fix.

For anyone who is facing the same issue, first take a registry backup and then follow the steps. Cheers!

Option 2 resolved my issue.  I was able to connect to a wi-fi network, but without internet access.  Option 2 worked and on the next reboot, I had internet access.
