My phone does not connecting to the Internet – it's saying "connected,no internet":


When I open a web browser, all I get is the same message ("no connection").

Can some one help me please I am begging. I have tried so many things and nothing work.

  • Have you tried another Wi-Fi network? Usually this indicates a problem with this particular network.

Can you see The SSID of available network's. When you click on the SSID does it say connect but no internet? Press and hold the SSID and select forget this will disconnect then reconnect make sure the password is correct if no password the you may need to agree to the terms

The message "connected, no internet" usually indicates a captive portal. In short that means you are connected to the router, but without your first "identifying" to it it won't "let you out" but rather "holds you captive".

In modern Android versions (Android 6 and up at least), Android detects this situation by itself (hence the message) and offers you to "identify" to the portal (it shows you a notification to tap on):

connected, no internet catpive portal
"No Internet" / Captive Portal (source: Wikimedia, click to enlarge)

If that does not happen, simply open your web browser and try to open a page, e.g. www.google.com. Your browser then should automatically take you to the login-page of the portal first.

  • And what did the browser itself show: "no connection", or cannot find/access the site, or just displaying some other page?

  • no connection that's all May 21, 2018 at 1:11
  • OK, that makes a captive portal unlikely. Could you please edit your question and add those details (best with a screenshot)? Also still unanswered: What do you mean by "using a modem"?
