Help: Opera Says "There is no Internet connection"

  • History:: Installed a trial version of "Easy-Hide-IP VPN for Windows", didn't like it, uninstalled it.

    Now Opera gives me "There is no Internet connection" for every page I try to go to.

    Not sure what is happening, our internet connection is working perfectly, on my laptop IE works perfect, as well as my email service. Using my tablet and my other laptop, Opera works perfectly.

    I tried deleting my profile folder thinking it was some kind of glitch in my preferences etc, but to no avail...as I get the same message when I run the "vanilla" install of Opera. Which made me think it's something in my Windows configuration that the VPN program altered. When I installed the VPN trial it also asked me if I wanted to install a TAP program, which I did, and when uninstalling the TAP program and the VPN software is when this started happening.

    Any help appreciated, PLEASE...thanks

    Any help is apprecia

  • If W10 go to

    *Settings > Network > VPN and / or Proxy

    Delete / switch off any unknow / unwanted profile or IP and try again.

    In other OS now I don't remmember if you need to go to your Lan/wifi card and check there or you might need Autoruns or System explorer and disable / delete the .sys file.

    Check internet explorer network settings might help too.

  • Ok, I see "Settings > Network > VPN and / or Proxy", but underneath the Network header is "Use proxy for local servers" which is checked, as usually it is even before I installed the VPN program.

    But I do not understand what you mean "Delete / switch off any unknown / unwanted profile or IP and try again" - where would this profile be located??

    As an aside, I decided to reinstall the Easy-Hide-IP VPN program and see what happens - lo and behold, not sure what happened but now Opera is working. I may choose to keep the pgm, if I uninstall it later, I will get back here to message whether the uninstall stopped Opera again.

    Still I am VERY curious as to what happened to Opera.

    By the way, I am interested if enabling the VPN function in Opera will mask my IP when downloading some non-copyrighted files via uTorrent? And how functional is the Opera VPN for other programs running on my Windows 7 platform??

    Thanks

    On Windows settings.

    Nope, Opera VPN works only inside the browser.

  • Proxy should not be enabled for local servers, if not necessary for some reason.

    There are some switches there, just try switch those options off.
    An IP could be into Proxy options, switching off or deleting it should fix the problem (if any).

    UltraSurf, Fiddler and some others creates a proxy when used, but if for some reason are not properly disabled when the program closes then you could have Internet access problems.

    If reinstalling solves the problem, you could try disabling it from the extension settings.

    Opera VPN works fine and masks the IP but only works into the browser, other apps are not affected so they show your public IP.

    I got this reply from the Easy-Hide-IP tech person::

    "Would you try flushing the DNS cache and restarting?

    On your keyboard, press Win+X to open the WinX Menu.
    Right-click Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator.
    Run the following command:

    ipconfig /flushdns"

  • Worked?

    That command cleans the cache DNS.
