Hello,

Two things for you to do:

- Update your Wi-Fi adapter's driver to the latest driver.

- Remove all your wireless network profiles to refresh your wireless connection, here's a Tutorial by Brink. Manually re-add your SSID or wireless network with the correct pass-phrase.

See if the above suggestions worked, if not we'll move on to the next troubleshooting task.

My wifi router is updated one.
I couldn't find 'manage advanced networks' in network and sharing center. however I tried reset my wifi adapter through device manager. This also didn't help.

I meant to update your wireless network adapter's driver and not the router's firmware.

Let's try a different tactic, it won't hurt. Remove your wireless profiles again....

Navigate to your C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\WwanSvc then find Profiles, right click on Profiles choose Properties, click on the Security Tab, click on Advanced button, in Effective Permissions, put a check mark on Take Ownership. Now,, re-add your SSID and try it again.

Post an update, if the above suggestion helped or not, then we'll try a different method.
