In general, this problem is caused by a variety of factors, ranging from technical problems, from virtual private networks to antivirus firewalls. So, without further ado, let's see how to regain access to the Internet in the Windows sandbox.

Note: Before proceeding, make sure you have the latest Windows 10 updates installed – type "Windows Update" on the Start menu, click Open, and then click Check for Updates.

Reactivate the sandbox

Windows Sandbox is a recent addition to Windows 10, so it is extremely sensitive to bugs and issues. Disabling and re-enabling the feature will likely help to connect to the Internet successfully.

Start by opening the Windows Features dialog box. For this you need to type features of Windows on the Start menu, and then click Open.

Clear the check box next to Windows Sandbox in the Windows Features dialog box that appears, and then click OK. Windows features will remove Windows Sandbox.

Then, restart your computer, return to the Windows Features dialog box, and then re-enable the Windows sandbox.

Again, restart your computer, and then try Windows Sandbox. If it does not connect to the Internet, let's see what you can do next.

Enable additional features

Another viable solution that you can try to make sure that Windows Sandbox can work properly. This involves enabling the various features that make it easier to run virtualized environments on your PC. It includes Microsoft's own dedicated Hyper-V virtual platform.

Open the Windows Features dialog box, select the check boxes next to the following features listed below, and then click OK:

  • Containers
  • Hyper-V
  • Virtual machine platform
  • Windows hypervisor platform

Once your computer has enabled these features, restart it, and then try Windows Sandbox. Does it connect to the internet now? Continue if it is not the case.

Bridge Network Connections

The next step in solving the problem is to parallel the networks used by Windows Sandbox and the host operating system. This allows better communication between the networks. It's something you absolutely should do.

Step 1: Click the Wi-Fi or Ethernet icon on the Windows 10 taskbar of the host, and then click Network and Internet Settings.

Finally, start Windows Sandbox and check if it connects properly to the Internet. Still no luck? Let's try the next one.

Disable the virtual private network

Is your computer connected to a VPN? The encryption protocols used by these networks prevent Windows Sandbox from connecting to the Internet. If it is, you must disable it.

Step 1: Open the notification center of the host, and then click on the VPN thumbnail.

S2nd step: In the VPN Settings window that appears, click Disconnect next to any active VPN connection. If your VPN has a dedicated applet, you can also use it to disconnect it.

Launch Windows Sandbox. It should probably connect to the Internet. Once this is complete, you can re-enable the VPN connection on the host – Windows Sandbox will still have access to the Internet.

Disable the antivirus firewall

Another major reason that Windows Sandbox may fail to connect to the Internet is third-party antivirus firewalls. If your computer has one, try turning it off.

For example, if you are using Norton Security, right-click the Norton Security icon on the taskbar, and then click Disable Smart Firewall. Then launch Windows Sandbox – it should most likely connect to the Internet.

Warning: Disabling the firewall can expose your computer to security threats. Therefore, enable it as soon as possible or add the Windows Sandbox as an exception.

Add a firewall exception

Did the firewall disable work? To avoid repeating the same thing every time you want to use the Windows Sandbox (and not to leave your computer unprotected), consider adding the Windows Sandbox as an exception to the firewall. antivirus application.

Using the Norton Security sample, go to the Settings tab of the antivirus application, click Firewall, and then add the following path under Program Control:

 C:WindowsSystem32WindowsSandbox.exe

If that does not seem to work, you can also try to exceptionally add the MAC address of the network connection used by Windows Sandbox. Use the following steps to do this.

Step 1: Launch Windows Sandbox, click the globe icon on the taskbar, and then click Network and Internet Settings.

Connected and ready to go

Hopefully the above fixes have worked and you are now connected to the internet. Microsoft will probably correct the various bugs related to Windows Sandbox. Do not forget to keep Windows 10 up to date. It is now time to play with the Windows Sandbox, so feel free to do what you want inside.

Then: Windows 10 has a neat hidden feature called Immersive Search. Find out what it is.
