Googling found these. This one has all the steps.

For troubleshooting purposes, disable encryption and MAC filtering on your router (via the web interface) and see if you can connect. Also, try connecting to your router via an Ethernet cable; can you connect to the Internet?

The most likely problem is that you entered an incorrect encryption key; try setting up your encryption on your home router again (without using MAC filtering!). Be careful when you're entering the passphrase/key-code. If you're sure that you're entering all of the details correctly and still can't connect, then we can look into this further. If you can connect without MAC filtering, my advice would be to not bother with it; it offers negligible protection and causes a lot of headaches.

As a check, did you try booting into Safe Mode with Networking?

Is this a fault that just came along or is it a computer you have acquired?

My other computers do connect to my wifi. My phone does too. My laptop will not connect to any wifi.

What is your computer name and model number?

Have you got the latest Wifi drivers from the manufacturer?

Unlikely to work but very easy to try:
Unplug the power and remove the laptop battery. Then hold the power on/off button down for about 20 secs. See if that helps when humpty is back together again.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I do not know the model (I can look if needed)

I do have the latest drivers.

The battery does not work, does that effect anything?

I had this problem for weeks and I tried all these remedies to no avail. After several conversations with my ISP support crew they replaced my d-link router with a Huawei and that solved it. I'm not a "techie" but thought I would just throw this in !!
