My WiFi card does not detect my own WiFi connection and I don't know why. Before, I was using an AC600 WLAN USB WiFi card and noticed that it detects my WiFi randomly.

I bought a new WiFi card which is the Linksys Max-stream AC600 micro USB adapter and as soon as I installed it, I could connect to my wifi.The next day it is back to how it used to be where I can detect other people's wifi and not mine.

My Xbox one and android can connect.to it just fine but my PC just doesn't pick it up.

It doesn't support AC

Yet you bought AC wifi adapters.  They should be downward compatible but this isn't always the case.

 

I would suggest you either get a non AC wifi adapter to change your router one that supports AC

Hmm ok, I know nothing about WiFi adapters. If it isn't compatible with my router, did I just get lucky when it connected the first time?
