Can't access to internet through a WIFI shared Android's phone connection

Hi,

 

I have an Android's phone which can share its internet connection through wifi (as usual). It worked fine for three months since my last message, but not now. Maybe because of some automatic system update ?

 

The laptop's WIFI connection is fine, it works on every spot. But when I share my phone's connection, the laptop see the network, connects to it but I don't have internet access. It says "No internet, secured" and I see the WIFI icon with a yellow exclamation point.

 

I checked Lenovo Support website, with my configuration (Ideapad 710S Plus-13IKB Laptop) but no WLAN driver seems to be missing.

 

So I'm a bit lost :-/

 

Thanks for your help.

Thank you Krakken for your answer.

 

I solved my problem : the computer was not guilty, but my internet access provider and my smartphone (Sony Xperia) were. Some complicated configuration let me have a light but helpful connection.
