  4. In case the Ping command brings each packet, and there is no loss of any packet, it means that the network setup is fine. But in case the answer is not being received, or there is an error while pinging the server, it means that the connection has not been correctly set up.
  5. Now, conduct the fixes.

Enable Sharing

  1. Tap on the Windows and R keys simultaneously for launching the Run prompt.

Enter the Safe Mode

  1. Firstly, reboot the system and instantly press down on the ‘F8’ button.
  2. You have to wait for the boot options page to appear and choose the option of “Advanced Boot Options.”
  3. Navigate to the “Safe Mode With Networking” option, click on it, and then wait for the startup.
  4. Check if you are still getting the error or not.

In case you are not getting any error, it means a background app is a reason behind this issue. Now, turn off the background apps individually, to find the faulty one. Once found, uninstall the said app, and reinstall the device.
