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

Restarting your router and computer is the first step you should take if you’re receiving the error message «Windows could not identify the proxy settings for this particular network». This will close all active applications and reset proxy settings to default settings. For the majority of users, this will resolve the problem.

If this doesn’t work, you can also try disabling any antivirus software, firewall, or VPN software that may be affecting your Internet connection. You can turn off each application through the settings and turning it off one at atime. After you have disabled all of these apps and tried reconnecting to your Internet and see if it remains the same.

If you are unable to resolve the issue using one of these options it is possible to consider doing a full system restore in Windows. This will restore your default network settings and erase any changes that might be causing the issue. You can do this by going to the Control Panel and then clicking on «Internet Options.» Once you’re there, uncheck the boxes labeled Automatically detect settings and use the proxy server on your network. Be aware that this will only affect your current user account so if you’re on the computer of a shared user, you’ll require repeating this process for other users. You can turn off proxy settings by using the Registry Editor. However, this method is more complex and could result in future issues.
