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

If you’re getting the “Windows could not recognize the proxy settings for this network” error The first thing you need to do is restart your computer and router. This will close any open applications and reset the proxy settings back to their default settings that should fix the problem for most users.

If that doesn’t work you can try disabling any antivirus software, firewall, or VPN software that may be interfering with your Internet connection. You can do this by setting the settings for each of these applications, and then disabling them one by one. Once you’ve disabled all of these apps, try reconnecting to the Internet and determine if the issue is still there.

If none of these solutions resolves the problem then you may need to do a system restore. This will restore your default network settings, and erase any changes that might have caused the problem. This can be accomplished by clicking “Internet Options” in the Control Panel. Uncheck the boxes labeled Use a proxy for your network and Automatically detect settings. Be aware that this procedure will only affect your current user account so if you’re on an shared computer, you might need to repeat this process for all other users. You can also disable proxy settings in the Registry Editor, however this is a little more complicated and could create problems in the future.
