A resolved issue, but I wanted to know why it happened

So yesterday, I was connecting to my home wifi. Upon successfully connecting, I tried opening a website, but it said "No internet" and didn't load the site. Tried switching the wifi off, then on again, then reloading, but it didn't work. Kept getting the "There is something wrong with the proxy server or the address is incorrect" error. So I switched off the wifi and then switched on the mobile data, then reloaded. The site loaded this time. So then I switched off the mobile data and switched on the wifi and reloaded. The site loaded now, and the Internet was working as normal. So I was thinking that this was due to the DHCP not assigning a new IP in time, and the phone's carrier having its own NAT to assign an IP. Any other theory I missed out?

sorry i was kinda joking. “its always dns” is a meme in IT but also kinda a good thing to remember, in your case I’m not 100% sure what was going on. Could be a few things

Oh lmao :bigkek: could it have been that the dhcp didn't assign the ip to my phone in the regular time it does for some reason?
