    My laptop is connected to my WiFi network, but does not have internet. I keep getting errors on my browsers such as ERR_FAILED and DNS errors. I have tried flushing my DNS and many other commands through the command prompt that many guides said to do, but none have worked. I have also tried to reconfigure my wireless setting that guides also have said to do but they have also not worked. I know the internet connection is good as all of my other devices use the internet fine and I can not reset the router or modem because it is a school internet. Thank you for any help! Win 10

    Clarify: is this laptop at home or school? If it is at school, then you need the school to help you with the wifi problem.

    It is at school but my computer was the problem. My school IT diagnosed the problem that my anti virus was blocking a connection and it is fixed now. Thank you for the help though
