There is a question about how Windows 7 checks for Internet connectivity (which leads to a SU blog article).
I have a Windows 10 machine which currently displays
- I do have internet access (browsing works fine)
- following the article I tried both checks mentioned there (resolution od an address and retrieval of a page, or resolution of another address to check the IP) and both are successful
Is the check on Windows 10 different?
Note: the connection is a straight one, without proxies (I mention this just in case as there were discussions about proxies either blocking attempts, or requiring an authenticated connection)
