    Nearby WiFi networks have stoped Displaying on PC


    There are several issues to this problem which may or may not be connected to each other however, it does seem suspicious that they are all related to my wifi.

    1. The wifi icon has disappeared from the tool bar. Only the 'Internet Connected' icon shows
    2. The dual band router only shows up as 2G on my pc but, 5G is working and shows as 2G and 5G on Andriod phone.
    3. The 2G disconnects every time I turn the pc off and then back on or go into sleep mode, then back on.
    4. Despite living in close proximity to many other houses only 2 other wifi network signals show. There used to be at least 6 - 8 before.

    I have run the 'normal' tests ranging from SFC, Troubleshooters, renewing drivers, renewing and resetting internet adapters, confirming signal strengths from ISP and pings, deleting and re-installing adapters, virus scans, reset router (several times). No others settings have been changed.

    The Network adapter is Ralink RT61 Turbo wireless LAN card with a Realtek PCIe GbE family controller.

    Windows 10Pro, v1803, OS-17134.706

    How to hide wifi networks

    Hi Adil,

    Let’s give this a shot:

    Hide A Nearby WiFi Network

    You already know the name of the network you want to hide from the list of WiFi networks. Open Command Prompt with administrative rights. Enter the following command, and replace “WiFi network you want to remove” with the name of the network you want to remove
    from the list.

    netsh wlan add filter permission=block ssid="WiFi network you want to remove" networktype=infrastructure
