Why I can't connect to my Wifi?

So, yesterday everything was fine but for some reason I can't now connect to my wifi, Im using Windows 10, I tried connecting to other networks and it worked, also tried to connect to my wifi using other devices and I had no problems doing that, I tried almost everything but no solutions were found (Reinstalling wifi drivers, rebooting modem, even reinstalling windows...) Is there any something I can do to fix it ?
Ps: when trying to connect, the wifi adpater goes on and off and I see that red mark on the wifi Icon than I recieve an error saying "cant connect to this network"
Any suggestions would be apperciate it, thanks Happy

Small world

A friend of mine experiences the same. Our solution: use a wired connection in stead of WiFi. Not really a solution, of course; more of a work-around.
We both are interested to read a real solution.

Installing Windows is rarely enough.

That is, I have to take your word you installed Windows. Microsoft barely gets a machine working right at that step so WiFi would require a lot more steps after the Windows install.

This is why I use the factory restore system so I start off with a working Windows PC.

Except for our old XP machines in storage at the office. Out of the gate the WiFi works as if it's the year 2000. It tries and fails to connect to our WPA2 protected WiFi. Why? It needs SP3 and updated drivers. Imagine the poor soul today on this.
