    Wifi Network Not Showing in List


    Hello,


    We had a power outage yesterday that reset our router to factory default settings. We fixed the router and not is is using the name/pw we want but while I see the router/network on my laptop (chromebook) and can connect to it just fine, I can't see the router/network name listed on my PC desktop that is running Windows 10.


    I have restarted the desktop, turned the WiFi itself off and on. My chromebook is sitting right next to my desktop and I a just don't understand what the issue is.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    :)

    Laptop won't show list of available networks

    We suggest checking the list of available Wi-Fi networks on your laptop.

    Please follow these steps:

    • Click the Windows logo.
    • Go to Settings (gear icon).
    • Select Network and Internet.
    • Then Wi-Fi.
    • Make sure the Wi-Fi radio button is On.
    • Select Show available networks, then you'll be able to see the list of available Wi-Fi networks.

    Update us with the outcome so we provide further assistance.
