View Full Version : Windows 8 connect to local network but no internet access
11-21-2010, 06:33 PM
Fresh install of Windows 8 beta on my HP latop but it keeps give me a yellow triangle with exclamation point in the taskbar saying "No Internet Access". in fact, i have connected to the local internet. I've tried shutting off the firewall, setting the connection to public, etc. with no change. I've also gone through the Windows Network Diagnostic process and it says... "Your computers seems to be connected properly, but the device or resource (www.microsoft.com) is not responding".
Is there other suggestions except the Microsoft helping?
plz do me a favor.
many thanks in advance.

Don't know if you still need an answer regarding this question.
But here is how I fixed it.
First make sure you have installed the right LAN driver. (therefore check you're motherboards drivers)
Once you've installed the right LAN driver, Windows 8 still got problems connecting to the internet.
This is because Windows8 has got a Network adapter called "Microsoft Kernel Debug Network Adapter" which is making a fuzz.
Therefore you have to disable this network adapter. Follow the next steps to disable this adapter.
1: In Windows8 go to the Start screen (the tile screen)
2: Hover your mouse in the left bottom corner (the desktop preview will appear)
3: Right-Click in this corner will open the advanced menu.
4: Select 'Device Manager'
5: Select and expand 'Network Adapters'
6: Right-Click the "Microsoft Kernel Debug Network Adapter" and select "Disable".
7: Press "Yes" to disable the adapter and then press "Yes" again to restart your computer.
This fixed my problem, I hope it does fix yours too! Good luck with it!

Ardon, Welcome to our Forum.
This was a very old post from one of our Moderators during the early Win 8 DP days. It has long since been solved, but perhaps your answer will help someone when Win 8 RP is released next week.
By the way, Win 8 RP (the next beta release) will require a clean install so prepare yourself for this.
