Windows 10 Network Connection Status Indicator (NCSI)

 The Network Connection Status Indicator within Windows 10 makes a call to the following URL


Depending on the response it will tell you if you have internet, need to login to access the internet, or have no internet.

Sometimes firewalls can block or filter this request  leading to issue with workstations.  If your not using a login portal for users internet access and are getting issues with devices reporting no internet the first check would be to bypass the URL and allow it straight out.
