    stupid vpn


    I just finished upgrading to win 10 from 7 and noticed cortana wasn't working. did a search and had the same problem as you with Edge just not going anywhere even though chrome and everything else was working fine. i was working at the same time and then turned off my vpn. voila! edge started working. Probably not the same problem for you, but just in case, thought you should know.

    I've been having a similar issue too. Edge says "can't reach this page." Windows search says "We can't connect to the web right now." But Edge can't see Bing, Google, Yahoo, or any other website I try to hit.

    And yet, I launch Chrome. I can surf like there's no tomorrow.

    Outlook? Connects, sends, and receives just fine.

    Dropbox? Sure. No problem.

    Adobe Creative Cloud? Just updated two apps.

    Save files to my NAS? Or print to my network printer? Yep. Sure can.

    And yet, here I sit with Chrome open on one monitor typing this entry, and on my other monitor sits Edge "Hmmm"ing to itself like an idiot.

    This is TRULY a remarkable achievement by Microsoft. They've managed to kill their own browser and search system, but everything else just keeps going. Bravo!!


    Seriously though, anybody have any luck taking care of this issue? I'm poking fun at Edge by talking about Chrome, but the truth is, I don't like Chrome. Or FireFox, or Safari or any of the others. I'm a Microsoft boy. And honestly, I I don't care for the Apple-fication that I see going on. If I want a dumb toy with pretty colors and nice soft edges, I'll by a Mac. But I can't understand for the life of me how Microsoft has lobotomized Edge and Cortana, yet everything else still sees the internet just fine. Can even do a old fashioned (and not very hip) ping (see below for the proof)... But no Edge love!

    Interestingly enough, when I go into the Control Panel (was it really necessary to bury it?) and check out my Network and Sharing Center, I'm informed that "You are not connected to any networks."

    Funny that, really. All those pages I sent to my network printer must be in my imagination. As, obviously, this post because since I clearly don't have a network connection, I can't possibly be typing this right now into Chrome.

    No issues found by the troubleshooting system. Just can't connect through Edge or Windows Search.

    I've set Google as my search provider in Edge. If I open a new tab and type where it says: Search or enter web address, I get:

    Hmm, we canít reach this page.

    Try this
    ēMake sure youíve got the right URL: http://windows%207%20iso%20download
    ēRefresh the page
    ēSearch for what you want


    If I click on the last option, a search opens in Bing.

    This is driving me crazy!
    I manage to solve a similar issue:

    Open Internet Explorer - Go to Tools | Manage Add-Ons
    Click on Search Providers
    Make sure the "Search in the address bar and the search box on the new tab page" is ticked!
    Close everything - go to Edge, try searching again....

    I was going to suggest going to advanced settings under settings. If you see Google listed is to remove it. Go to google, and see if it gets relisted. if so, chose it. Then select Google in the drop down box. I don't seem to be affected by this issue, however.

    This site add a few search providers in a list that you can choose from. Add Google, Reddit, Yahoo, Ask Search to Microsoft Edge

    Seems to work ok.

    Thank you. It seems that making this change to IE fixes Edge, who knew!

    I suddenly have the "can't find that page" problem with Edge, and this did not solve anything for me. That box was already ticked.

    What happens here now is that every search ends up with the "can't find that page" and hitting "refresh" does find that page. Chrome has no problem whatsoever finding any of the pages I look for. It seems to me that some current update broke Edge in this respect. Very annoying. Anyone else seeing this problem?

    I have the very same problem. The only website that I can reach is MSN. I do a search with Bing from there and this is all I ever get; Hmm, we can't reach this page. I have used 4 browsers and I get an error from each. Now, the sad part is that I am running a MS Surface Pro 3 with MS Windows 10 and it does not work. Something wrong here! I have been fighting with this for almost 10 days and have ran so many different "troubleshooting" scenarios it is getting pretty crazy. I have been on their support chat and they keep giving ideas that I have already tried. I am now ready to install Win 10 for the 7th time. I have used the Windows Update file and also downloaded the ISO and burnt a flash drive and they all work the same...NOT!

    I have a similar problem. First discovered the system cannot discover other system in my workgroup. Then found Windows Update fails because it's not connected to a network. But non-Microsoft browsers and apps connect just fine. Would love to install the 1511 update and see if that helps, so I downloaded the update setup from the Catalog using Firefox. But neither the X86 nor the AMD64 version of the 1511 setup accept my Intel 64-bit machine as valid for the update app. I'm leaning toward reinstalling Windows 7 and re-updating to Windows 10, but there's a very bad Windows 10 taste in my mouth right now.
