How to Fix No Internet Secured Problem on Windows 11

In a modern world where the internet is considered as one of the essentials in day-to-day living, encountering a “No Internet, Secured” problem while using your Windows 11 computer might be a hassle for you. 

If you are here to find solutions, then this article will help you fix the “No Internet, Secured” problem on Windows 11.

Before going over the solutions, let us first find out the meaning of No Internet, Secured.

‘No Internet, Secured’ Error Message

The “No Internet, Secured” error message pops up whenever your computer encounters a connection or wireless configuration problem. Sometimes, it may appear as a notification on your screen. This indicates that your computer has encountered the following: no internet activity, your computer is connected to a network, but there are connectivity issues and ISP or IP address issues.

So whatever the underlying factor that may cause this issue, we will discuss and troubleshoot it one by one.

Your Computer’s Proximity to the Router

You should take note that your computer’s distance to the internet router is a big factor in ensuring that your computer has a stable internet connectivity. 

Ensure that your computer is close to the router and that your router and modem are placed in a good spot, away from any obstructions that may cause the connectivity signals to weaken. Adjust their placements, if you must, to ensure that your devices are in a close distance from each other.

‘Forget’ Your Computer’s Internet Connection

A primary internet connection that you always use for your computer might be ideal and convenient, but sometimes, it can also cause connectivity errors. Although your computer remembers all the connection data that it uses, when there are times that the settings are modified, such as the name or other configurations, it may fail to connect to that network.

However, you can fix this by forgetting that particular internet connection. By doing this, Windows will erase all the data that has been saved.

Start by opening the “Settings” application.

Select “Network and Internet”.

Restart Your Router and Modem

Since this is an internet issue, another thing to do is to try to restart your router and modem. Restarting your modem helps the device to cool off and refresh.

To restart, first, unplug the modem from the power source or outlet.

Wait for at least 30 seconds, and then, plug it back into the power source or outlet.

After that, wait for another one to two minutes, and then, turn on your modem.

Lastly, wait for all the indicator lights to turn green, or in some modems, the indicator lights are blue, which signals that your modem has power and an active internet connection.
