Thanks in advance.

Turn the wifi off and on in the router. Now be sure the security is set to WPA and you broadcast a single SSID.

I've found that helps if it's the usual issue. If not, try another router.

turn the wireless off, then on? Are you broadcasting SSID?

Try power cycling the router. Turn it off for 30 seconds, then back on. If no joy, it's time for a new router.
