How to Fix the “Windows Could Not Detect This Network’s Proxy Settings” Error on Windows 10

If you’re experiencing the “Windows could not find the proxy settings for this network” error The first thing you need to do is restart your router and computer. This will close all open applications and reset proxy settings to default. For the majority of users, this will fix the issue.

If this doesn’t work, you can try disabling any antivirus software, firewall, or VPN software that could be affecting your Internet connection. You can disable each app through the settings and removing it one at a time. After you have disabled all these apps you can try reconnecting to the Internet and see if the issue is still happening.

If you’re unable to solve the issue using one of these options then you might want to think about a complete system restore in Windows. This will restore your default network settings and also remove any changes that could have caused the issue. This can be done by clicking “Internet Options” in the Control Panel. Uncheck the boxes labeled Use a proxy for your LAN and Automatically detect settings. Keep in mind that this will only affect your current user account, so if you’re on a shared computer you might require repeating this process for all other users. You can also disable proxy settings using the Registry Editor, but this is a bit more involved and can potentially cause problems in the future.
