Restarting your computer and router is the first step to do if you are receiving the error message „Windows could not identify the proxy settings for this network“. This will close any open applications and reset the proxy settings back to their default settings and should resolve the problem for most users.
If this doesn’t work then you should try disabling any firewalls, antivirus software, or VPN software that might interfere with your Internet connection. You can disable each app by going into the settings and disabling it one at a time. After you have disabled all these apps Try reconnecting to your Internet and see if the issue persists.
If none of the above methods resolves the problem then you may want to perform a system restoration. This will restore your default network settings, and erase any changes that may cause the issue. This can be done by going to the Control Panel and then clicking on „Internet Options.“ Once you’re inside the window check the boxes marked Automatically detect settings and use a proxy server to connect to your network. Remember that this method will only affect your current user account therefore if you’re using an shared computer, you might need to repeat this process for any other users. You can turn off proxy settings using the Registry Editor. However, this procedure is more complex and could lead to future problems.
