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

Restarting your computer and router is the first step to do if you are receiving the error “Windows could not find the proxy settings for this particular network”. This will close all active applications and reset proxy settings to default. For the majority of users, this will fix the issue.

If this doesn’t work try disabling any firewalls, antivirus software, or VPN software that may interfere with your Internet connection. You can do this by setting the settings for each of these apps and then removing them one at a. After you have disabled all of these apps, you can try reconnecting to the Internet and check if the issue persists.

If you’re not able to resolve the issue using one of these options it is possible to consider a full system restore in Windows. This will restore the default settings for your network and will also eliminate any other changes that could be responsible for the issue. You can do this by navigating to the Control Panel and then clicking on “Internet Options.” Once you’re in this window you must uncheck the boxes that say Automatically detect settings and Use a proxy server to connect to your network. Keep in mind that this process will only affect your current user account therefore if you’re using an shared computer, you might need to repeat this process for other users. You can also disable proxy settings in the Registry Editor, however this is a little more involved and can potentially create problems in the future.
