In this blog post, we’ll walk you through some of the most effective methods for fixing a yellow triangle on your WiFi in Windows 10. We’ll start with some basic troubleshooting steps and then move on to more advanced methods.

Step One: Check Your Router
If you’re having trouble connecting to the internet, there’s a good chance your router is turned off or not connected to the internet. To check this, first make sure your router is turned on and connected to the internet. If it is, then check to see if the light is green or red. If the light is red, then try unplugging the router and plugging it back in. If that doesn’t work, then you can contact your ISP for help.
If the light is green, then your router is probably turned off or not connected to the internet. To turn on your router, first make sure you have an active internet connection. Then press the reset button (usually near the power cord) and wait for a few seconds. If you don’t have an active internet connection, then you can also try connecting your computer directly to your router by using a Ethernet cable. If that doesn’t work, then you’ll need to contact your ISP for help.
There are a few things that can cause your router to stop working properly. One common issue is that someone might have accidentally unplugged it while it was still in use. Other causes can include viruses or malware blocking access to the router’s settings or problems with the firmware (the software that runs on routers). In most cases, however, contacting your ISP will solve the problem.
Step Two: Power Cycle Your Network
If you’re experiencing problems with your network, there are a few things that you can do to help fix the issue. In this section, we will outline how to disable and enable your network adapter, as well as how to power cycle your network.
First step is to identify which adapter is giving you problems. To do this, open Windows 10 and click on the “Action Center” icon. Under “Hardware and Sound,” select “Network adapters.” If you have more than one network adapter, you will see a yellow triangle next to each one. This tells you which adapter is not working properly.
Next, decide which adapter should be used for networking. Usually, the wired (Ethernet) adapter should be used for desktop use; however, if wireless connectivity is required then the wireless (Wi-Fi) adapter should be used instead. Disabling the incorrect adapter may solve some issues but it may also cause other problems down the road so it’s always best to leave them enabled unless there’s a specific reason why they shouldn’t be!
Now that we know which network adapters are working and which ones aren’t we need to power cycle our networks in order to reset them back into their default configuration. To do this 1) Right-click on an empty area of your computer screen 2) Select “Power Options” from the menu that pops up 3) Click on “Restart” 4) On restarting Windows 10 try connecting again using either of your disabled adapters.

Step Three: Update Your WiFi Drivers
If you’re having trouble connecting to the internet, there’s a good chance that your WiFi drivers are outdated. You can check this by going to the Device Manager and expanding Network Adapters. Right click on your WiFi device and select Update Driver Software…
To update your WiFi drivers, follow these steps:
1. Go to the Device Manager and expand Network Adapters.
2. Right click on your WiFi device and select Update Driver Software…
3. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
4. If you don’t have the appropriate driver installed, Windows will search for it online and install it automatically. You may be prompted to restart your computer after completing this step; please do so if necessary.
5. Once the update process is complete, return to the Device Manager and notice that your WiFi device now has a yellow exclamation point next to it indicating that there are pending updates that need to be applied. Select Update Driver Software… from the menu bar and follow the prompts again in order to apply these updates.
After following these steps, you should now have updated drivers installed and be able to connect to the internet successfully!
Step Four: Use the Windows Troubleshooter
If you are experiencing problems with your Wi-Fi, there is a simple solution. First, launch the Windows troubleshooter by opening settings and then Update and Security. Next, select the “Find and fix problems with Wi-Fi” option from the list of troubleshooters. The Windows Troubleshooter will now scan your computer for any Wi-Fi related problems which it will then attempt to fix automatically. If successful, you should now have working Wi-Fi on your computer once again. If not, move onto Step 5.
If you are still experiencing problems with your Wi-Fi after following these steps, there may be something wrong with your network configuration or hardware. In this case, you will need to consult an expert in order to resolve the issue. However, following these simple steps should help solve most common Wi-Fi related issues on a Windows 10 device.
Step Five: Change Your DNS Settings
In this section, we are going to show you how to change your DNS settings on your Android device. By doing this, you will be able to use a different DNS server for browsing the internet. This is useful if you want to avoid being tracked by your ISP or if you want to use a different DNS server for privacy reasons. We recommend using Google Public DNS (22.214.171.124) or OpenDNS (126.96.36.199). You can also add multiple DNS addresses separating them with a comma, such as 188.8.131.52,208.
To change your DNS settings:
1. Open the Settings app on your Android device.
2. Tap on Wireless and Networking.
3. Under “Wi-Fi Networks,” click on the network you want to connect to.
4. If you have more than one Wi-Fi network configured, select the one you want to use for this tutorial.
5. Under “Basic Information” (shown in Figure 1), tap on the “DNS” button (shown in Figure 2).
Figure 1: The “DNS” button is located at the bottom of the Basic Information screen shown when connecting to a Wi-Fi network.
Figure 2: The DNS screen will appear after tapping on the “DNS” button.
