My Windows 10 PC says that I currently have an internet connection but the network status says "no internet access". I'm trying to setup a mobile hotspot but it keeps saying this: Your PC doesn't have an Ethernet, WiFi or mobile data connection. What can I do? Should I try to reinstall my network drivers?

I have run into this a few times. IT may be the computer can see the wi-fi router and say you have a connection. The no internet access may be due to the modem having issues. Try rebooting both devices and see if that clears it up

    Yes, this is the first troubleshoot that, again re-install network drives and then again try the same. You can try to run Troubleshoot and check if it helps you.

    One more thought, you can create a new user with Admin rights, and try the same, sometimes it works. Also please check here for MS Support: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4000432/windows-10-fix-wi-fi-problems
