    I have a laptop that has issues with local connections. It is running windows 10. I am trying to connect a zwift mobile app that must be on the same network as the pc. My computer has no issues with the exact same router connection. My laptop cannot connect to the app on the same network. privacy settings are set to private network. I have turned off all firewalls and uninstalled all anti-virus programs. I faced a simmilar issue before with this laptop. It can't reach local modem/router ip address. It is somehow blocked on the laptop. I'm at a complete loss.

    Please provide router brand and model #.

    My router has a WiFi feature called AP Isolation. It is a security feature that prevents each device from messing around with another device's connection. If you have such a feature, you need to switch it off before the zwift app can talk to the PC.
