Fixing the laptop’s WIFI problem which won’t connect to the internet
Wi-Fi is the only one famous wireless networking technology which uses radio waves to provide the high-speed wireless Internet and network connections. These days, nobody can stay away from using the WIFI because it uses the cheap broadband bandwidth where the Sim card DATA costs the fortune.
And I know it’s hard to go through when you open your laptop to do some important work and find out that your laptop’s Wi-Fi isn’t able to connect to your favorite network. Even it’s possible that the WIFI is working perfectly on every other nearby connected device, but the laptop is the one who’s having this problem while connecting the router/modem wirelessly.
A lot of things can happen which leads your laptops to create this kind of problem and the first thing what you can do fix your WIFI is by giving your laptop a simple reboot.
If you haven’t rebooted your computer in a while then it’s quite a worth to give a shot. Rebooting can fix a lot of different issues cause by the operating system cache files and can take your OS to the right path by restating its services.
Not just for the laptop, you’ll also need to do this your main WIFI Router/Modem too.
So, Let’s See How to Fix This WIFI Problem;
It’s possible that your laptop is only not connecting to single a WIFI Connection or maybe it’s doing with every available connection out there. It all depends on how bad the condition is.
Here are some suggested troubleshooting steps what you can try and let’s get started with;
#1 – Fix by Forgetting the Old WIFI Data
Old WIFI data means all those SSID Names & Password of different networks which are automatically saved by your laptop’s operating system whenever it’s connected to some new connection.
To forget any SSID Name in Windows 10 you need to can go to the settings and then and select WiFi under the “Network & Internet” options. After getting into the WIFI’s Menu, select ‘Manage known networks’ to see all the SSID listing.
By selecting an SSID Name and click on forget can delete that networks entry and you’ll need to do it for all because you can’t delete all at once and everything needs to be deleted to properly clear the OLD Data.
#2 – Fix by Disabling the Antivirus Software
There is also a quite possibility that the antivirus software installed in your windows is conflicting the network devices of the computer and make your WIFI unable to connect to the network. The best way to clear out this confusion you can disable your antivirus for about 15 minutes and test the WiFi.
You can find the ‘Disable Antivirus Protection’ option into the antivirus settings but there is also another easy way which you can use find this option;
And that is open the quick feature options by right-clicking on the antivirus logo from the windows notification area, just to make it simpler.

#3 – Fixing by DATE & Time Checkup
Having the wrong date and time on the computer can also cause this problem and I’m only saying this because if your connection has firewall hardware installed in it or maybe use any kind of firewall software, then it always better to maintain the correct date and time setting to get identified by the connection trustfully.
Changing the date and time also isn’t that much of a job and you can check it quickly. To do that by just right clicking on the ‘Windows default Clock’ and selecting the “Adjust date/time” option.
After in the menu, make sure the clock is running correctly. And yes, you can cross-check the time with your mobile phone for the accuracy.
And the other import thing what you’ll need to check in this menu is the “Time Zone”. Mainly the area which you’re living in.

To get to this tool, search for the Control Panel in windows Starts Menu and after opening it, select the “Troubleshooting” option. Now in the troubleshooting menu select the “Network and Internet” to get to the main network troubleshooting menu.
#5 – Fix by Updating WIFI Drivers
Just like a car needs a driver to move, your computer operating system also needs a Driver (in a software form) to handle and work with the hardware. So, it might be possible that your laptop’s WIFI Drivers got corrupted or disturbed, and to fix it;
Updating, or I can say reinstalling the drivers is the only thing which can rest the whole WIFI settings make everything back to normal.
