Your computer might have been incorrectly detected as being outside the domain network



If you are using Windows 10 Enterprise edition you have the option to utilize a tool called DirectAccess. This feature can be very useful if you want to log in to a remote user without the use of a VPN service.

In essence, remote users can stay connected to your organization’s network which is a good thing if that’s your purpose. On the other hand, an issue appears when your computer enters the “Sleep” mode. The INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND error appears on Microsoft Edge when you try to access your organization intranet. Your usual course of action is to run the Network Adapter Troubleshooter. But that seems to complicate things even more as a new error message is given saying: “Your computer might have been incorrectly detected as being outside the domain network”.


Before restarting your client PC, you can try these methods to troubleshoot and fix the problem.

Change the Settings on Internet Properties

  • Open Internet Properties by searching for “internet options” in the Taskbar search box.
  • You can also press Win+R buttons to open the Run dialog box and then type “inetcpl.cpl” to open Internet Properties.
  • In the Internet Properties window, go to the Security tab and choose the Local Intranet option.
  • Then click on the Sites button.
  • On the resulting window, you need to make sure to uncheck these options:
    • Include all local (intranet) sites not listed in other zones
    • Include all sites that bypass the proxy server options.
  • And then hit OK to apply your new settings.

Note: Make sure to leave the option “Include all network paths (UNCs)” checked.

This should fix the “Your computer might have been incorrectly detected as being outside the domain network” on your Windows 10 PC. If nothing happens to solve the issue, try the next method.

Tweak your Registry Settings

Before you proceed with this method, make sure to create a backup by setting a new System Restore point.

  • Press Win+R keys to open the Run dialog box and enter regedit to open the Registry Editor.
  • Navigate to following registry key from the left pane of the Registry Editor window:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\TabProcConfig
  • Look for the MicrosoftEdge key, and click on the TabProcConfig sub-key. Find the entries that contain your IP address and then delete them.
  • Exit the Registry Editor and try to connect to the network again.
  • If the issue is still there, then you need to reboot your system for the settings to take effect.

That’s it! You can also check your internet connection using a ping test in the command prompt. This would ensure that you can connect to the network without a problem.
