No Internet Connection issue can be caused by many things, and one of those is self-assigned IP issue. We are going to troubleshoot and fix the self-assigned IP on MacBook.

You have to notice two things, Configure IPv4 (1) and Router (2). If you have the main problem where Configure IPv4 has been set at Using DHCP, but the Router is not set by any IP, then try this following steps to solve that issue.

Steps for troubleshooting

  • Click Finder Icon, then in Menu Bar Click Go > Go to Folder
