Fix the Internet Down Quickly
There are several ways to fix dead internet or wifi connection on a laptop or smartphone. We will discuss them one by one.
1. Make sure the wifi is ON
Before you pull your hair thinking about why the wifi that isn’t connecting, confirm first that the wifi on your device is ON. For some laptops and devices, you must turn on the wifi button first to connect, so always remember this. If your device has been connecting before, some devices allow you to automatically reconnect. But if the wifi password has changed you have to enter the new password again.
2. Restart the device
If your device wifi is already on but it’s not showing signs of connection. Then try restarting your device. Then check again, if there’s still no connection, turn off your device. Check the cable on your wifi router or transmitter if it’s connected properly. Because sometimes turning off the device and unplugging and then re-plugging the router/transmitter cable will fix your wifi connection allowing other devices to connect.
3. Fix the Internet down on a laptop or computer
Before we get into how to fix a dead internet on a laptop or computer, you must first know the conditions of your device. Two things appear in the system tray when the device is not able to connect to the internet.
- Wireless Network Connection was disabled and
- Wireless off.
Wireless Network Connection Disabled is self-explanatory. What you need to do is just enable it again so that it can work normally. But if there is no wifi around you to connect, then the state becomes wireless off.
- System Tray display if wireless is disabled
- System Tray display if wireless is off
Normally, you will have an internet connection if there is wifi around and your wireless device is enabled and on. But sometimes things happen, like accidentally clicking or it was intentionally turned off by someone who used your device earlier.
But you don’t need to worry, because this can be resolved without you having to call an IT technician to fix it. You can do the following steps to fix the internet on your device.
If your wireless is disabled, then here are the steps you need to do; go to the Control Panel> Network and Internet> Network and Sharing Center> Change adapter settings.
Then right-click and select enable, or you can also click wireless and an option will appear at the top to enable this network device. This will reactivate your wifi network. If you are in an area with a wifi signal, your device will be connected immediately.
Is wireless enabled but still not connected? Follow these steps.
How to turn on wireless.
If your wireless is already enabled but the wireless status is off then your device still won’t connect. If that’s the case then you have to check and ensure that your wireless is ON. The wireless off icon and the wireless icon in the no wifi access area have the same appearance. But the difference is that off wireless won’t be connected to wifi even though the wifi device is near your device.
The way to reactivate it is by clicking the Windows + X button, then the Windows Mobile Center window will appear. If your wireless is off, then the wireless status is not connected, you can then activate it again by pressing the turn wireless on button
After you click Turn wireless on it will look like this. If it’s connecting to wifi, then the signal will turn green.
But unfortunately, you need to do this manually, so every time you turn on wifi, you need to always reset it.
However, since it’s not too difficult and safe you can always try this method. There is one more way to deal with dead internet wifi. Namely with the Home Network solution, where we make it seems as if the connected wifi belongs to the user so that it is always safe.
4. Solusi Home Network
Often the first time we connect a laptop or computer to wifi, a window asking what wifi is connected to the device will appear. So some of us ignore it or choose the public because perhaps at that time it was in a public wifi area. However, it turns out that some devices refuse internet access due to this situation. The device has detected an unsafe action, so the device decides to deny internet access. Then all you have to do is change this setting to the home network. So that it tricks the device to assume the secure wifi channel we are connecting to.
How do you change it?
Here are the steps to set it up,
On the network connection screen, you must disable all network adapters. So that there is no conflict happening.
And then Enable Local Area Connection
After that you can click Network And Sharing Center then select Choose Homegroup And Sharing Option
Then click What Is this Location, then select Homework
And lastly, Enable reset all adapters
5. Using “ipconfig”
If you are still confused or looking for other ways, then you can use “ipconfig”. This is the step that you would take if you are sure that the IP Address is causing the Internet connection problem. What you have to do is as follows.
Click Windows key + R then type “cmd” then click OK or you can also press the ENTER button. Then a command prompt window will appear.
Then write ipconfig / release and press ENTER
Then write ipconfig / renew and press ENTER again
And finally, close the command prompt window
If what you are complaining about is a dead internet on an Android smartphone, then there are various causes, but not as serious as on a computer. The internet may be dead on the smartphone due to running out of data plan, insufficient signal, or the provider you are using having trouble. You don’t need to get angry about it because this is a normal thing to happen. But if none of it is proven to be the cause of your internet network not connecting, then you need to bring it to the service center to claim your warranty. Especially if your smartphone is new. You should ask for the cellphone to be replaced with the same type. But you should first bring it to the smartphone store where you bought it.
Hopefully, the methods listed above can help you to fix it yourself first before you give it to a service center. There is nothing wrong with trying to learn in a self-taught way, right? Besides, you can save money, and you can also use it to help someone else who is having the same problem as you. Thank you for reading our article. Good luck and success.
