Microsoft has released a new optional preview update that fixes two bugs that prevent Windows 10 2004 users from connecting to the Internet.
In July, we reported that Windows 10 users saw the "No Internet" message on the Network Connectivity Status Indicator (NCSI), even though their internet was working fine.
When starting these types of programs, users may receive "Please connect your device to the internet" errors, which prevent mode of the application.
Apart from the problem with NCSI, Windows 10 2004 users with WWAN LTE modems could not connect to the internet, even if NCSI status indicated that they were connected.
Fixed issues with the new Windows 10 2004 update
In the new Windows 10 2004 Preliminary Optional Update KB4577063 released this week, Microsoft has resolved both issues.
- Fixes an issue that might prevent applications from opening or causing other errors when applications use the Windows API to control the Internet connection, and the network icon incorrectly displays "No internet access" in the notification area. This issue occurs if you use Group Policy or network configuration to turn off Active Detection for Network Connectivity Status Indicator (NCSI). This also happens if the active crawler fails to use a proxy and the passive crawlers fail to detect the internet connection.
- It has a problem with some WWAN LTE modems that may not display the internet connection in the notification area after waking up or inactive. In addition, these modem may not be able to connect to the internet.
Now that the WWAN LTE modem problem has been fixed, wait compatibility has been removed and affected users cannot upgrade to Windows 10 2004.
