    Win 10 Network Printer Connection Problem

    I have tried, when using the wifi from a Win 7 computer to connect to the printer connected to it. Others can connect.

    I did do the three steps outlined:

    • Open File Explorer. Pick the "Network" icon from the left pane (navigation pane) of the file explorer UI.
    • If sharing is turned off you will see a pale yellow line towards the top of the window that states "Network Discovery is turned off. Network computers and devices are not visible. Click to change...".
    • Click this bar and select "Turn on network discovery and file sharing"

    None of the suggestion worked.

    I did notice that the PC I'm connecting to is 'Private' while I am listed as 'Public'.

    • Can this be causing the problem?
    • Are there other suggestions?

    I need to be connected to use the other printer so work flow can not be disrupted and someone else needs to print the file for me.

    I will be with this group again on Monday.

    Thank you.

    Wifi network not appearing after recent Win 10 monthly patch

    Someone else on another forum suggested I switch the wifi freq on my Android Nexus 5x. So I switched it from 5ghz to 2.4 and it worked! Problem solved. Now my Nexus hotspot is again appearing in my Win 10 list of available wifi networks. So problem was with Android and not Windows.

    unable to connect to wifi network

    Hi Alexander,

    Reading through your post, we see that you have run a lot of troubleshooting steps to resolve your WiFi network connection issue. There ares some other steps though that you may still do to resolve it.

    Please check Fix network connection issues in Windows 10.

    To site some:

    • On the first item about Things to try first, you will see basic troubleshooting steps. Included in this topic is a suggestion to contact your Internet Service Provider which will be able to guide you in checking connection with your router.
    • Running the Network troubleshooter. This topic also includes applying network commands that may be able to help you. Please try the other network commands and check if it works.
    • Uninstalling the network adapter driver and restart. You may try if you had a
      recent update.
    • If you are running running Windows 10 Version 1607 or later you may also try
      Using network reset.

    If you have tried all of the above and the connection still fails, you may try some other steps listed below:

    • Change channel width for your network adapter.
      • Press Windows Key + S and enter type network. Chose
        Network and Sharing Center from the list of results.
      • When Network and Sharing Center opens, click the Change adapter settings.
      • Locate your wireless adapter and right click it. Choose Properties from the menu.
      • When Properties window opens, navigate to Advanced tab.
      • Select the 802.11 channel width and change the value. Some users have reported that changing the value to
        20 MHz has fixed the issue for them, but you might have to use a different value.
      • Click OK to save the changes.

    • Disable IPv6 on your computer and router.
      • Open Network and Sharing Center.
      • Find the Connections section and click your current connection.
      • Connection status window will open. Click the Properties button.
      • Find Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP /IPv6) and uncheck it.
      • Click OK button to save the changes.
      • Restart your computer in order to apply the changes.
      • If the problem still persists, you might have to disable IPv6 on your router. Disabling IPv6 on your router is a complicated process, and it’s different for every type of router, so before you do that, check the your router’s instruction manual.

    • Make sure that your adapter and router are using the same security type.
      • Open Network and Sharing Center and click the Manage wireless networks.
      • Find your wireless network, right click it and choose Properties.
      • Go to Security tab, find Security type section and select the
        same security type that your router is using. You might have to try several different security types before you pick the right one.
      • lick OK to save changes.

    • Add the connection manually.
      • Open Network and Sharing Center.
      • Click Set up a new connection or network.
      • Choose Manually connect to a wireless network and click
        Next
        .
      • Enter the requested information such as network name, security key and security type.
      • Click Next to finish the process.
      • After you’ve created a new network connection, everything should be working without any problems.
      • If the issue persists, try changing the security type of your new network.

    Kindly keep us updated with the status of the issue
