I had this problem on Thursday - 10 - 2 - 14. My Dad resettled the router and then when it was resetted, I disconnected but when it was back up again, it didn't reconnect, so I went to connect to the WiFi and it says Can't connect to this network and I connected to it several times. I restarTed my computer several times, did a system restore, and tried troubleshooting it. I have a wireless network by the way, I don't use a Ether net Cable. Or anything of that sort, can someone please help me fix this?

Are any other users of the router having problems?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Well no not really, it's just my computer that can't connect to a network, everyone else can connect to it fine, and even my phone can connect to it.

What is the make and model of this computer?

 

Open the Control Panel and then click on Internet Options.

 

Click on Connections, then click on LAN settings and make sure that Automatically detect settings has a check in the box.

 

Click on Network and Sharing Center.

 

Under View you active networks do you see your router.

 

Is there anything listed in Connections?

It's a X550L, two days ago I just fixed it but when I resetted then Wifi, it did it again. How did I fix it this time? I disabled my network connection and then restarted and then enabled the network connection and it worked. But it showed something different when it worked. It said Verifying and Connecting instead of Checking network requirements.

Go to Search and click/tap on Apps, then type cmd in the search box.

 

Command Prompt will appear under Apps in the upper left portion of the window.  Right click on it, then click on Run as administrator.

 

This will open the Elevated Command Prompt.

 

In the Command Prompt copy and paste the command below, then press Enter.

 

netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
