Having the same reoccurring problem for some time now. Seeking help.

Hello, for some time now I have been having issues with my network every now and then (once every two weeks or more often) where I just can not do much on the internet. Some things work, some do not.

I try to troubleshoot through Windows Network Diagnostics and it always comes back as 'Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings'.

I an not using, nor have I ever used or set up a proxy or VPN.

I've gone into the Command Prompt and used 'netsh winhttp show proxy' to verify my proxy settings and it comes back with this.
