    Connected to Ethernet but windows says not connected to any network.


    Hi

    I am connected to the internet using ethernet and can access the internet but windows can't detect any networks and I can't access windows store or verify identity on PC.

    I have to change and set DNS and IP address every time I log in.

    Edit : I've tried resetting Winsock, deleting network drivers and network reset.

    Airplane mode is missing.

    Hi scareware047

    First you won't have an Airplane mode unless you have a wireless card. Airplane mode disables wireless, Bluetooth and cellular.

    I would start with your router, it does not seem to be handing out ip addresses, like the DHCP is disabled.
    Is your router new? Is PC new? Assuming no to both, power down your router, then on PC ensure you are set to get IP address automatically, then power it down. Power up router and power up device.

    Post back results.

    Have you used any privacy related tool? Download WN.bat and run it as admin. When you have network services and diagnostics disabled, it might result in this. I have got the same, but on a purpose though.
