    I'm not sure where to post this, I'm new. If it is in the wrong place please feel free to direct me to the correct place.

    My Laptop is having difficulty connecting to Wi Fi. It suddenly stopped working while connected to one network
    It would connect to the data hot spot from my phone but this no loner works.
    It would connect to another two networks. But this to stopped working.

    Thinking it was an issue with my Wi Fi card I installed a version of Linux onto a SD card and plugged it in. This allowed me to connect to the Wi Fi again.
    This made me believe it was a setting on Windows 10 that I could not find,

    I was wondering if any one could help me solve this issue.

    Thanks Sam.

    In Windows open Device Manager, click the + sign next to Network Adaptors and tell us what is listed there with 'wireless' in it's name please, also right-click that device and check everything is working ok.

    Make sure the installed wireless driver is the latest one from the laptop manufacturer's web site.
