Hi,

I and my brother have two laptops, and the issue has suddenly happened last night:

We have a modem with wireless connection. My laptop suddenly last night decided to not to detect the wifi, but my brother's laptop can detect and connect.
But when I enable Mobile Hotspot from my mobile phone, my laptop can detect that without problem.
So the only issue is that my laptop cannot detect and show home wifi in the list. But I see many other wifi nearby.

I tried removing wifi driver, forgetting all wifi networks, restarting Windows. But none of them worked. I also tried resetting network, and restart laptop but did not work.
I can connect to my modem with LAN cable with no issue.

My laptop model
What should I do for this?

I'm not sure why the issue has happened, but I did fix it by resetting the modem (I mean reset factory) and now my laptop is connecting to the home wifi:)

Glad it can help you in the future

Glad that you solved it. I don't know, maybe Windows downloaded and installed an update in the background and somehow caused this problem. Anyway comment here again if the problem happened again. Good Luck
