This keeps happening and I need help ASAP. My Windows 10 computer cannot connect to one specific Wi-Fi network. And it's my home network too. My smartphones connect with no issues. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’ve seen this before with certain wireless networks. It can be a driver problem on the client end. Or, it could be a configuration program on the AP/router end. I would start with the client. You might even install a USB Wi-Fi adapter (super inexpensive online) and see if that might work.

    Are you getting any errors? Have you tried removing the connection and adding it again with the password to verify the credentials are correct? If you still have issues with your homework, check with your school to see if the port may be blocked.

    My mistake, I though you mentioned homework and you meant home network. Must be real tired. Does you computer at least see the wireless network? It might be that the Wi-Fi adapter got disabled. Try this to switch it back on. Go to the Start Menu and select Settings. Scroll down and click on Change adapter options. Right click on the Wi-Fi adapter and click Enable.

    Try to uninstall network driver of this particular Windows 10 computer and restart the system. Windows automatically installs the necessary driver of network. Next try to update the system and make sure all updates (including optional) have done properly and there is no pending update. Also check the anti virus firewall configuration, if any.
