Recently had this issue on my laptop where if i restart/shut down and turn it back on it'll be disconnected from my wifi and won't be able to connect or see the network on the bottom right.
The laptops able to connect and find to all other wifi networks in my area except mine.
But on other devices im able to connect to my wifi network just fine, only this laptop has issues unless i reboot my router with the laptop still on then im able to see my network until i restart my laptop again and have the same issue over again.

Im unsure if its a problem with my laptop or the router since the laptops able to connect to find other routers in my area. But at the same time my other devices are able to connect to this router. Also it's a Dlink DIR-826L

I've tried:
Turning off auto channel scan on my router and manually selecting channels 1-11
Resetting the router
Updating wireless drivers on the laptop
Updating the routers firmware
