    Hi so my router is downstairs and my room is upstairs. I tried connected multiple devices to the wifi from my room but none of them will connect so the issue definitely isn't my device. if I step outside of my room, everything seems to connect and run perfectly. My laptop and phone can detect the wifi network it just isn't able to connect, does anyone have any idea why this is the case and now can I solve this issue?

    Maybe the signal in your room is too weak. Weak signal could be caused by an obstruction or unfortunate orientation of the router's antenna(s).

    Or maybe there is wireless interference in your room (e.g., from a neighbor's network that comes easily through a window into your room but is obstructed in other parts of the house).

    If you have a computer running Windows ...

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with a screen shot see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows Vista or latter I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.
