    Windows 10 pro Showing not internet connection even if its working!

    Good afternoon to all, I have a few Dell computers with windows 10 recently install (6 month). Everything was fine until I recently notice the triangle on my lan connection as you can see in the picture. Please Note that everything is working fine: I can browse the internet and connect to my lan network without any issues but this little triangle is still present.

    I then check and I was very surprise to see that windows think I am not connected to the internet (see picture).

    As a It technician this is what I did to try to fix the issue

    1. I delete and reinstall the latest drivers for: bios, chip set, network card: no success
    2. Change the network cable: no success
    3. Ipconfig /release renew: no success
    4. Apply the most recent updates: no success
    5. I install another networkd card: no success.

    I notice that this problem is present only on the dell computers with windows 10 OS. I have the same dell computers running windows 7 without any issue.

    I will greatly appreciate your help. Thanks

    can you change your DNS to (googles DNS) to ensure your ISP's DNS is not the problem.

    I think Windows is trying to tell you that there is a hardware or driver problem, start with your router settings and work back to your adapter settings. Simple power management...don't allow hardware to sleep. If you will kindly fill in your My System Specs that show in each post, we may be able to help knowing model and make of machine, router, etc.

    I attached my system summary. Note that the computer is currently connected in a domain in an office environment.

    One more thing to try, go into Device Manager and uninstall your ethernet adapter. Then rescan for hardware changes or reboot.
