Q) Why my Wi-Fi is saying no Internet?
A) If the Internet works well on other devices, the problem lies with your device and its Wi-Fi adapter. On the other hand, if the Internet doesn’t function on other devices too, then the problem is most possibly with the router or the Internet connection itself. One good way to resolve the router is to reboot it.
