I am getting the yellow-triangle warning on my internet icon in the system tray with the caption (upon click) "no internet access" even though my internet is working fine. I had this problem when I was running Win 7 and it still persists after my update to Win 10. Rebooting my modem and router sometimes clears the warning. Rebooting my PC does not clear the problem but sometimes a full SHUT DOWN and then restart will. Any ideas, please?

Just a thought,try disabling your Antivirus and see if that fixes it.

 

 

Also you could release/renew your IP address

 

    Go to "Start > Run" and type cmd ,select "OK"

    Type ipconfig /release and press "Enter"

    Once the prompt returns, type ipconfig /renew, then hit "Enter,"

    Lastly, type exit  press "Enter" to close the window

 

 

If neither of those works this is worth a look,remember to create a restore point before you try any system changes.

Thanks for your reply, Wolverine 7. I've just begun to read your suggested resources and I want to try them. My problem doesn't always appear so I'll wait until it does again. I did try the regedit mod and it worked. I'm going to reset to see if my Avast AV is triggering the incorrect connection status, too. I'll report back with results.

My yellow warning overlay on my Internet service tray icon reappeared upon next startup. As I posted earlier, I began trying suggested fixes for the problem with the following results:

 

Disabling Avast anti-virus... no help. Uninstalling Avast... no help.

 

Resetting IP address via cmd line... no help. Resetting IP via reboot of router and modem... no help.

 

Regedit modification of "EnableActiveProbing" ... successful!

 

Hope these trials will be of use to others with my problem.

 

Thanks again, Wolverine 7.
