It is really frustrating to be able to connect to the Wi-Fi network but to have no Internet access. You get messages like ‘Connected but no internet’ or ‘No internet connection’ that appear on the screen of the Wi-Fi Settings app on your iPhone. But here’s the thing. Both things signify the same thing, and there are a number of different things that might cause it. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Make sure you check out the mini-guide below on how to fix your Internet not working on your iPhone.
Verify whether or not the router is linked to the Internet
Despite the fact that your iPhone is linked to the network, the router itself may not be connected to the Internet for some reason. There is a possibility that the high-speed Internet cable has become damaged or broken as a result of normal wear and tear, weather, or another factor. The majority of routers are equipped with LEDs that change color from green to orange or red to indicate whether or not the device is connected to the Internet.
Here’s what you have to do: Turn off your router and modem, wait for thirty seconds, then turn them back on.
Adjusting the visibility of your Wi-Fi network in the settings
Under “Settings,” “Wi-Fi,” you’ll see a list including the names associated with each Wi-Fi network in your surrounding region. Tap to rejoin your Wi-Fi network if it is shown in the Networks section of the Settings menu. It is possible that you may be prompted to fill in the password.
You can turn on and off the airplane mode
This method right here is probably the most popular one! Swipe down from the top-right area of the screen to open the Control Center, then hit the Airplane symbol when it appears on the screen to switch it on (it will turn orange). Tap it once more after a little pause, and it will turn off (the button will turn grey).
Location Services should be enabled for networking and wireless
1. Select Location Services from the menu that appears once you open Settings, then navigate to the Privacy and Security section.
2. Go to the bottom of the screen, choose System Services, and then activate the option for Networking & Wireless. If it is already activated, you must first disable it and then enable it again.
Now check to see whether the Internet is working on the iPhone and that it is linked to the Wi-Fi network.
Forget network and reconnect
1. Head to the Settings menu and choose Wi-Fi. Tap the information icon (i) that is located next to the name of the Wi-Fi network to which you are connected.
2. Select the “Forget This Network” option. It is possible that you may be requested to confirm. Wait a few seconds before selecting the Wi-Fi network and re-logging in.
