After putting in the Home windows 10 October 2018 replace (model 1809), Microsoft Retailer apps are now not in a position to hook up with the Web. For instance, Microsoft Edge is unable to hook up with any web sites, displaying the message, “Hmmm…can’t attain this web page.” Apps like Mail, Calendar, and Information will not be working correctly. And Microsoft Retailer says to verify my connection.

Non-Retailer apps, equivalent to Web Explorer, are nonetheless in a position to hook up with the Web.

Microsoft has since confirmed that it is a matter that the corporate is conscious of, and dealing on fixing. A Microsoft worker said that the issue solely impacts customers who’ve IPv6 disabled.

As our personal Wealthy Woods explains, the corporate’s modifications to the way it propagates Home windows releases earlier this 12 months could also be inflicting undue pressure and could possibly be a part of why each the April and the October 2018 updates skilled such early pains. That the corporate determined to completely skip the Launch Preview ring this time round in all probability did not assist issues, both.

Replace: It appears community profile settings could also be an extra issue inflicting the connectivity points, even when IPv6 is enabled. A subsequent response by one other Microsoft worker on the assist thread affords the next resolution in case you’re nonetheless experiencing points after IPv6 is enabled:

When you nonetheless having points after enabling IPv6, I recommend altering your community profile to Public. Go to Settings, Community & Web and click on on Change connection properties. Underneath Community profile, click on on Public.

If that doesn’t work, run Community reset. It will reinstall your community adapters and set different networking elements again to their authentic settings. You would possibly have to reinstall any VPN software program or digital switches after. Go to Settings, Community & Web and click on on Community reset. Click on on Reset now.
