If you are facing WiFi problems on your computer, then try these steps one by one.
1: Check your network connection:
See if your network display button is showing an exclamation mark. If it is, right click on it and open the troubleshooter. The windows troubleshooter will try to resolve basic internet connection problems.
2: Check your Device Driver:
Usually your WiFi won’t respond because of faulty device drivers. To check if your drivers are working properly go to device manager.
- On windows search box, type device manager. Or open Run (Windows + R) and type devmgmt.msc, then hit enter.
- Device manager will show all your installed device drivers. Navigate to Network adapters and look for any exclamation mark. If you find any driver with exclamation mark or red mark, that means it is not working.
- Right click on that driver and select scan for hardware changes. Windows will automatically download the correct drivers for your PC.
- After the process is completed, restart your windows and check whether your WiFi is working or not.
If the dialog box shows that windows is unable to find the right drivers, then you have to install them manually.
- Open a browser and search for your PC’s support and drivers (Ex: Asus drivers download). Open the support page of your PC.

If it’s still not working, follow the next step.
