Hi guys,


So I just arrived in London and my mate has internet from Virgin Media. There are many people using this internet and we have friends over all the time and no-one has a problem connecting to WIFI. I CAN connect via cable and my internet works just fine.


I have Windows 10 which has been buggy for me although it has never been a problem for WIFI.


So to explain further. My laptop has worked in over 50 locations in several countries since I installed windows 10, no problems. The WIFI at my mate's place has worked for hundreds of people, no problems. So WTF is going on????!!!!!


Recent problem to my laptop?? I just went to the nearest McDonalds and as expected my internet works perfectly. 


The error is that when I find the wifi in my list of nearby networks, I click it and it says "checking network requirements", and it just stays that way forever and nothing else happens.


OMG Please help me! I'm dying! Normally it wouldn't be a big deal but I'm in a moment in my life where I really need this wifi, I've got tons of work to do.


Do you think getting rid of Windows 10 and reseting my laptop completely with windows 7 could help?


Can you make any suggestions?


Please, Please help.

I am not sure it will work but try setting up your wireless manually as explained here. You will need the network SSID and the password

Also, does the modem-router support WiFi Protected Setup (WPS)?   I'm presuming by reading between the lines that you're trying to use the conventional passphrase with WPA-PSK encryption.  I've had occasions where I could not get a password to be accepted where WPS has worked and vice versa.
