Why can't my computer connect to a wireless network?

The wireless network connection is according to many the easiest way to access the internet. On the other hand, there are many things that can go wrong and make it impossible to connect your computer to a wireless network.

Exactly what causes this problem can vary greatly from case to case. In part, the error is due to something beyond their control. For example, that the internet provider has problems with its network. This may also be due to the router not being connected properly or also to the wireless network card drivers not being configured correctly.

The statement of work (SOW) in an RFP or RFQ defines a project’s goals, deliverables and performance criteria.

Here's how to connect your computer again
As you can see, there are many reasons why a computer cannot be connected to a wireless network. With that said, we thought we would share a handful of possible solutions to the problem below: 

1. Remove the network from the list
Sometimes the solution to the problem is simpler than you think. If the wireless network is visible in the list but you can not connect to it, it may sometimes help to remove it from the list and then try to connect again.

If you own a PC with a Windows operating system, it is very easy to remove the network from the list. Simply navigate to the Control Panel followed by Network and Internet and Manage Wireless Networks . Then right-click on your network and select the Forget this network option .

On some versions of Windows, however, the above method does not work. In such cases, navigate to Settings instead, and then press the Windows key and the letter I at the same time. Then click on the Wireless Network icon and right-click on your network name. Select the Forget this network option .

3. Use the built-in Troubleshooter
If you use Windows on your computer, there is a built-in troubleshooter. The troubleshooter can sometimes help you diagnose and fix the problems with your wireless network connection.

To use the Troubleshooter, simply navigate to Start followed by Settings> Network and Internet> Status . Once there, click the Network Troubleshooter and then follow the steps outlined. Note that there is no guarantee that the connection problem will be resolved when you use the Troubleshooter.

3. Reset the network card drivers
If you have tried the above methods without success, you can try to reset the network card drivers. Here, too, we will start from a computer that uses Windows as an operating system.

To reset the network adapter drivers, navigate to Start, and then type Device Manager in the search field. Then click on Network Card and locate the card used on your particular device. Then right-click on the correct network adapter followed by Properties . Once there, select Driver> Restore Previous Driver, and then follow the instructions. Then finish restarting your computer.
