If you’re receiving the «Windows could not detect the proxy settings for this network» error The first thing to do is restart your computer and router. This will close all active applications and reset proxy settings to default. For the majority of users, this should solve the problem.

If that doesn’t help it is possible to disable any firewalls, antivirus software, or VPN software that might interfere with your Internet connection. You can disable each application through the settings and turning it off one at a time. Once you’ve disabled all of these apps, you can try reconnecting to the Internet and check if the issue persists.

If you are unable to solve the issue with any of these methods, you may want to think about a complete system restore in Windows. This will restore the default network settings and eliminate any other changes that might be making the issue. You can do this by going to the Control Panel and then clicking on «Internet Options.» Once you’re in the window check the boxes marked Automatically detect settings and Use a proxy server for your LAN. This will only affect your current user account. If you are using a shared computer, you may need to repeat this process for other users. You can also deactivate proxy settings using the Registry Editor, but this is more involved and can potentially result in issues in the future.
