The most common reason: you don't use the right password for the WiFi. Delete the connection data (ssid, password) and enter them again when defining it again.

In such cases it doesn't work at your current location, but it does work on public hotspots and elsewhere (if you make the connection correctly). Try that if it keeps going wrong where you are now.

I've yet to see that helps. Can you tell after you did it?

On My Older HP G6, I Had To Use a USB Wireless Adapter
Nov 22, 2017 9:03AM PST

Although I also tried updating the drivers but eventually, the onboard wireless simply failed. So, we purchased an expensive external USB wireless adapter, disabled the onboard wireless in Device Managed, plugged the new adapter into the USB port of the laptop, and the connection worked perfect again.

Hope this helps.

1.Check whether Another Laptop / PC is connected to Internet?

2.Check your Internet Connectivity: If you have consistent connectivity to the Internet using your Smartphone?

3.Check whether Another Laptop / PC is connected to Internet?

4.Connect the Laptop to your Router using an Ethernet Connection Cable directly to one of its LAN ports.
