    My desktop computer suddenly lost the ability to connect to my home wi-fi, but phones and iPad still connect fine. When hovering over the internet symbol, it says Not Connected - Connections are Available. My wi-fi network is listed and shows decent signal strength. I click Connect and it says Checking Network Requirements. Then after a few seconds it says Can’t Connect to this Network. It’s been reliable until now.

    It’s an HP Envy running Windows 10 Pro. Hoping there’s an easy fix! Thanks to anyone who can help me.
