7 thoughts on “Google Chrome Not Connecting To Internet (Fixed)”

  1. Tried reinstalling and any number of fixes. Bottom line if other browsers work and Chrome doesn’t, so be it. If Google can’t make their browser more functional and less invasive than I’ll use other browsers that are more functional. Goodbye Google Chrome, their are so many other options!

  2. Tried all three. Chrome is still not connecting. Time to uninstall and use another browser. Than none the less for the ideas.
