The October 2018 Update has only just dropped, and however a different issue is influencing some Windows 10 consumers who have taken the plunge with the upgrade, in the sort of a non-operating Edge browser.
In truth, as specific by a grievance on Microsoft’s assist discussion board, pursuing the update remaining mounted, all Microsoft Store applications fail to connect to the online, together with Edge. The browser merely displays an error when the consumer makes an attempt to navigate to a site, meaning that instead of the web site popping up, the consumer merely gets the message: “Hmmm… cannot get to this website page.”
‘Hmmm’, in truth. Other browsers, like Chrome or Firefox, or in truth Microsoft’s Internet Explorer – and non-Microsoft Store programs – can connect to the web just good.
It’s not apparent how many folks this bugbear has hit, but evidently it is a little something to do with IPv6 options in Windows.
As stated by a Microsoft personnel on the discussion board: “Microsoft is informed of an situation soon after setting up the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) that prevents Microsoft Store applications from connecting to the Internet on gadgets that have disabled IPv6.”
A alternative is in the pipeline, evidently, but the present-day workaround is merely to empower IPv6.
As outlined by Microsoft, you can do that by heading into Options, then clicking Networking & Internet > Network and Sharing Centre. Decide on your network adapter here, then click on Properties, navigate to the Networking tab, and tick the box following to Internet Model 6 (TCP/IPv6). Then click on Okay to help save the modifications.
This need to get the job done in theory, in any case, despite the fact that a pair of consumers have complained that this hasn’t solved the issue for them. A single consumer stated that it solved the situation for the Microsoft Store, allowing for that to connect on-line – but not for Edge.
Fingers crossed if you are affected that the proposed Microsoft alternative does in truth functionality appropriately as a workaround. If not, you will just have to wait around for the patch, which Microsoft is evidently hectic working on.
