Every time I'm connected to a Wi-Fi, suddenly, it'll say No Internet, secured even if the Wi-Fi is working just fine. That stops me from using anything including offline LAN features like accessing my router's settings.

It goes away after turning off Wi-Fi and turning on again tho it returns after some time. Sometimes it's minutes, other times, it takes hours for the problem to show up again.

How do I fix this so I can use Wi-Fi uninterrupted?

My laptop's Wi-Fi is just fine until I've reinstalled Windows clean.

Device Manager says my driver is up to date and Windows Update doesn't find an update either. I've tried installing and uninstalling the Intel Wireless Proset listed in my laptop's drivers in the Asus's website but it doesn't do anything.

Asus TP510UQ, Windows 10.

The wireless driver currently installed in my laptop is for Realtek 8822BE Wireless LAN 802.11ac PCI-E NIC.

C:\Windows\system32>ipconfig /all

  • No internet does not mean no connectivity. You can connect to the wifi but if DNS fails, it will still say no internet. You would want to check your ip configuration and ensure that it is what it is supposed to be. ipconfig /all is the cmd command to see it all. Especially the ip range, gateway and dns servers are important. – LPChip Jun 12 at 11:47
  • Yeah. Windows Troubleshooter says that but Wi-Fi is just fine in other devices. Will DNS problem also cause me to not be able to access offline sites like 192.168.254.254. How do I fix it? I will try ipconfig /all – Hamu XD Jun 12 at 11:50
  • I've run ipconfig /all. I've added the details to the post – Hamu XD Jun 12 at 11:57
  • In case you're trying to use WEP, I have had problems with internet connectivity when using this on Windows 10. I need WEP for some old devices, but I had to switch the main router to WPA for Win10 and buy a WiFi extender to provide WEP. – AFH Jun 12 at 12:07
  • WEP was recently discontinued on Windows 10. If your using WEP and Windows 10 version 1903, that would be reason, your unable to connect to the access point. – Ramhound Jun 12 at 12:31

I don't know that this will help with this issue, but it does explain how the Network Connectivity Status Indicator indicator works. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-vista/cc766017(v=ws.10)

  • OP is using Windows 10 not Windows Vista. – DavidPostill Jun 12 at 13:35
  • The NCSI was introduced with Vista and applies to all later versions of Windows. I haven't seen later documentation from Microsoft. – Ed Palmer Jun 12 at 14:25

Your wireless may be going into power saver and not waking up. You can disable power saver by opening Device Manager, bring up the properties for the wireless adapter, select the Power Management tab, then unchecking Allow the computer to turn off this device.

  • It's already disabled. – Hamu XD Jun 12 at 20:46
