Hello all, I've been having some issues with my wifi recently that have been driving me up the wall. It started out with an error message for my wifi that, when troubleshot, came up with the error in my title as well as "There might be a problem with the driver for the wifi 2 adapter." It also shows the wifi signal at full strength, with the words "No internet, secured." I know the wifi itself isn't the problem because my phone and PS4 still connect just fine. The drivers for my adapters are updated and I've even bought a new adapter, only to get the same problem. I've done everything I could on the Microsoft help site (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10741/windows-10-fix-network-connection-issues) and I honestly can't think of anything else. Can someone help me?

Your phone, PS4, and your computer wifi adapters all use different drivers.  If you are having problems with the computer wifi adapter you try uninstallinstalling its driver and reinstall a fresh one.

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