Microsoft has confirmed another issue related to the Windows 10 May 2020 update. Some users see after installing the update, despite having an internet connection, that they were unable to connect to the network.
As soon as a Windows 10 PC is connected to a wireless or wired network, the system shows the current connection status under the name of the respective network. If the Internet can be reached via the corresponding network, the status “Connected” is displayed. However, this is not the case for some users who downloaded the May update. Although an Internet connection could be established, only the status “No Internet” is shown to the users concerned.
Users can use workaround
Until Microsoft releases a patch, a workaround can be used. To do this, the registry editor must first be opened. This is possible by pressing the key combination “Windows key + R” and entering the command “regedit”. Now you have to switch to the address noted below. Here the value “EnableActiveProbing” can be edited and set from “0” to “1”. Now the status of the current network should be displayed correctly again. However, this workaround does not seem to work for all users. The address for the workaround is:
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ NlaSvc \ Parameters \ Internet
Microsoft is working on troubleshooting
As Techradar reports, Microsoft now lists the error on TechNet and emphasizes that a solution is currently being worked on. It is not yet known why the bug occurs. A patch may then be made available in the coming weeks.
