  1. Can't connect to home WiFi other networks work, can connect to the WiFi on other devices


    Hello there,

    I'm having troubles connecting to my home WiFi on both of my Windows 10 machines. I can connect on both computers to other networks, including a mobile 4G+ hotspot.

    When I try to connect to the network, it asks me for the password and I see the following message:
    "Some information changed since the last time you connected. We need additional information to complete the connection."


    I can connect to this network on my Windows 7 PC and my Android phone. Ethernet also works fine on Ubuntu 18.04 and Windows 7 can't test that on Windows 10.


    This issue is new and was never present before today.


    Another minor issue regarding WiFi that I've had: The list of WiFi networks does not refresh if a new one comes up or if a WiFi goes down. To force a refresh, I have to toggle the WiFi off and on.
    In the case of the latter, Windows kept thinking that the WiFi was up, first showed a "!" symbol, then disconnected and retried connecting. After that, it kept the WiFi in the list but did not attempt to connect any further. I am not looking for a solution to this one as I can bear with it somehow; I'm pointing it out if it is relevant to the main issue anyhow.

    :)

    How to connect to an existing wifi network?

    'Not connected' doesn't necessarily mean the WiFi adapter isn't working, just that you have not yet connected to an available network. If it is working then a list of available WiFi names should appear when you click on the WiFi icon on the taskbar which looks like this

    when not connected.


    If the list is empty then either the antenna is not connected to the WiFi adapter or the adapter isn't working. This may be a driver problem rather than hardware, so look in Device Manager for any yellow warnings. Also check that the WiFi adapter is not disable in Device Manager.

    Can´t connect to my Wifi network

    Hi everyone,

    I can´t connect to my Wifi from my desktop with Window 10. I had an ethernet cable before and it worked perfectly but now I can´t connect my computer to the router through the cable anymore.

    For some reason it detects my wifi network but when i try to connect it says i cant connect.

    I followed a few tutorials online of how to fix it and still didn´t work.

    any help please???

    thanks in advance

    Ramon

  4. Can't connect to home WiFi other networks work, can connect to the WiFi on other devices

    Phone won't connect if I change wifi password

    My Nokia Lumia 520 never had any connection problems, but today it won't connect not even when I press the WPS button on the modem or type the wifi password. I get the message:

    ''The Wifi network didn't respond, try again later''.

    Wifi is working fine on all other devices (pc, laptop, tablet and other phones) so I'm guessing it's a phone issue? Phone's wifi was working fine yesterday.
