You might still not have internet access after a reset. This article will explain why your modem doesn’t work after you reset it. It also explains how to fix it and how to properly set it up.
There is still no internet after modem reset
Your modem is not connecting could be due to a malfunctioning modem or bad configuration. It could be an issue with your device. Perhaps your network card isn’t working.
It is possible that the network adapter configuration is incorrect. If you have one, check if the Ethernet cable is damaged. It could also be related to your ISP. This means that there is no internet at this time.
If you have a brand-new modem and know there is internet in your area because neighbors are using the same provider, let’s talk about how to fix ” no Internet Access.”
How do I fix no internet access?
We are fortunate that the “no internet after setting up modem” problem has been encountered many times. There are several ways to fix it. The automatic troubleshooter can be used to check for a firmware upgrade, renew the IP address, block the MAC address or reset the TCP/IP.
If you see a connection in your bottom right corner but it doesn’t say “no internet access” when you hover your mouse over it, then you can open the automatic troubleshooter.
Right-click to open the connection and choose Troubleshoot Issues. This will check for problems with your laptop’s internet adapter. It will reset the adapter and likely fix the problem with internet access.
The problem is usually with the wireless adapter/access point. This can be fixed by having the troubleshooter reset everything and test it to make sure it works properly. It’s important to also check the firmware on the modem.
The firmware update could be both the cause and the solution. Some modems may need to be reset in order for the firmware update to work. This is the most frequent tech problem. It is possible that the firmware needs to be reinstalled.
You can manually install the update by connecting to your modem using an Ethernet cable. You can then download the latest firmware version using another connection. It is usually located in the section Update Firmware or Software Upgrade.
There will be a section that reads “Firmware Path“, or something similar depending upon the modem model. Click Browse… to locate the file, then click OK. This should resolve the firmware issue.
Renew your IP address

The Command Prompt window appears in black. Next, type into the command prompt window. Your laptop will renew your IP address by hitting Enter.
You will need to click the Apple menu if you are using a Mac. Next, you can go to your System preferences and choose Network. The network services are listed in the left pane. Select the IP address that you wish to renew.
Click on Advanced to find TCP/IP. Then click on To renew DHCP lease. This should resolve the problem of no internet access.
Blocking of MAC addresses
Although this is rare, it can happen occasionally. However, the modem may prevent your MAC address access to internet. Your MAC address could be blocked by someone on the modem. It could be a relative or a friend.
This issue is easy to fix. You simply need to visit the settings page and disable MAC filtering. If that doesn’t solve the problem and you still have no internet access, another reset may be necessary.
Multiple issues can be fixed by resetting your internet protocol. It can help with malware issues.
