Ok so i have this problem. My laptop suddenly stopped connecting to my router. Yesterday it all was fine, but for almost half an hour, it doesn't connect to my router. I thought it could be a problem with the router, but when I connected my phone to wi-fi, it worked. Then I assumed that my laptop has some issue and I tried to connect it to my hotspot and it also worked. Now I can't find out what the problem could be, since router works fine, laptop's wireless adaptor&driver work fine. I forgotten the wireless connection with my router from the laptop and tried to add it again, but it wouldn't work. :)

What do you mean by "it doesn't connect"? Can it see any wireless networks around you? Can it see your wireless network name? If you try to connect and diagnose the problem, does Windows give a error or reason for the problem?

 

Also, what model router and laptop do you have?

It sees all wireless networks around me. When I try to connect to mine, it says "Can't connect to this network." And the troubleshoot tells me to unplug/reset router, I did it and still doesn't work. Laptop is Asus X540L and router is Huawei HG655b.

What are you wifi settings? See page 6-1 of manual. Looks by default it is using TKIP, which may not work well with that computer. TKIP is controlled by the PC wireless client, so driver and software issues can break it. That and AES is faster and more secure. I suggest changing it to WPA2+AES if possible. If that doesn't work, try turning the wireless security off for a moment and see if it connects then. If so, it's a security issue, if not, it's a networking issue.

Can you connect via an ethernet cable ?
