Microsoft has just recognized a new problem stemming from the latest Windows 10 update , whereby false Internet connection failure warnings are being displayed on certain users’ computers.
Specifically, some users are being informed that the yellow triangle icon is appearing in the system tray informing them that they do not have Internet access , when the router is working correctly, a false alarm that is causing some applications not to they work.
Although users can continue browsing the Internet normally despite the presence of this yellow triangle, there are certain applications such as Spotify, Cortana and the Microsoft store that depend on the Internet state of Windows 10, and when recognizing the system that there is no adequate Internet connection (even if it exists), they do not end up working .
If you don’t want to wait for Microsoft to release a patch in the next few days, you can use the following procedure to fix it:
- Open the “registry editor” application that you can search for in the search box at the bottom left of the Windows 10 interface
- Go to the path “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ NlaSvc \ Parameters \ Internet”, keeping in mind that some directories may change names depending on your installation.
- Modify “EnableActiveProbing” and change the value from 0 to 1, click OK, close the registry editor and restart the computer.
Microsoft has already confirmed the problem, and they point out that there is a bug with the Network Connectivity Status Indicator (NCSI) found on the taskbar or in the system tray. ” Our customers are reporting access without the Internet in the network connectivity status indicator on Windows 10 2004 devices .” There will be an official patch solution soon.
