FIX: Android emulator Internet not working [Connection Loss]


  1. In the Search bar, type Allow app and open Allow an app through Windows Firewall.
  2. Click Change settings.
  3. Allow Android Studio for Private network and confirm the changes.

Another viable solution is to check the configuration file and confirm that the internet permission is granted to Android Emulator.

In addition, you should check the Windows Firewall and confirm that the Android Emulator is able to communicate freely. After that, you should be able to resolve the issue at hand.

Use the above steps in order to allow Android Studio to freely communicate through the Firewall.

4. Disable the unused Network adapter

  1. Open Network settings.
  2. Choose right-click on the Adapter you want to disable and disable it.
  3. Check whether the problem is resolved.

The most prominent solution we were able to find concerns disabling a Network adapter. Namely, it seems that Android Emulator tries to connect via a not-established, inactive adapter.

This, of course, leads to an internal network error and users are unable to access the online content. Use the above steps in order to avoid this.

5. Reinstall Android Studio

And, finally, if none of the previous steps proved resolutive, the only thing we can suggest is a complete reinstallation of the Android Studio. This might help, but we can’t claim that with certainty.

This is the last resort, so if there’s a way to find an alternate solution without resorting to reinstallation, go with that. You can also try an alternative emulator.

Countless users complain about:

  • Android emulator Wi-Fi connected no Internet – If that’s the issue that bothers you, don’t postpone the inevitable. You need to check the firewall and make sure it has nothing to do with this problem.
  • Emulator not connecting to the Internet – When your good old emulator cannot connect to the Internet, it’s time to think of an alternative. Find all about LDPlayer by taking a look at our above tips.
