I have been using my wifi for 12 months already , but 2 days ago I noticed a problem. if I disconnect from my wifi via the clicking on the disconnect icon and then re-connect it does not connect on the first try anymore, now sometimes it takes 2 or three tries. The message that comes up on my pc is "can not connect to this Network" . What can be causing this ?

✔ Best Answer
How are you connecting to WiFi, with a wireless router in your home? If you have a router, you could try and reset it by unplugging it for a few minutes and then reconnect, or some routers have a small hole in the body that you stick a straightened out paper clip into to reset it. It's not necessary for you to disconnect when you're done with it, it will disconnect automatically when you shut off the computer, naturally.

Restart the router. Power off/on.

Use the on/off button or unplug/replug it. Do not use the paperclip in the hole for a simple reboot since it usually will be a reset of the router and that will mean resetting of the entire set up including reentering the name and key and changing the access password from the factory default again.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
