  • DisableNetwork means that it doesn't have network connectivity. Make sure you can get online and that nothing is blocking it.

The important bit of information from the logs is Network is unreachable [WSAENETUNREACH ]; NOROUTE. (Second line from the bottom.)

A couple of ideas:

  1. Check you can connect to the internet normally (i.e. without using Tor).

  2. If you're using your cellphone as a hotspot, is your phone connecting to the internet via 3G/4G, or via WiFi? If via WiFi (perhaps in a cafe, or somewhere else where you don't normally use the internet), you might be trying to connect to the internet via an ISP that blocks Tor, in which case you would need to use a Tor bridge.

I'd check #1 first...
