How to Fix “WiFi Connected But No Internet” Error on Galaxy S10

Restart your Galaxy S10 smartphone and your wireless router or modem

  • Turn off your WiFi modem
  • Unplug the wireless router
  • Leave it powerless for about 1 minute
  • Plug the wireless router back and turn it on

Now, you’ll have to perform a force restart on your Galaxy S10 smartphone. To do that, you have to press and hold Volume Down and Power keys until the Android logo pops up on the screen. Once the Galaxy S10 restarts, you can try to connect it to WiFi.

If that did not solve the “WiFi connected but no Internet” error, move on to the next solution.
