Why "The settings saved on this computer for network do not match"

Hi - I can connect to most networks (wifi) that I want to but for some reason my office wifi I cant because I get this message:

"The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirement of the network"

Im not sure what to edit here any ideas? Thanks

You can get there by going to the Network and Sharing center, look on the left where it says Manage Wireless Connections, you can open up the profile for that connection then make adjustments to it. You will need to know the SSID, wireless password, the type of security and encryption also need to match.

I get this intermittently.
I also have a disconnected wifi icon when I am connected.
I found a dastardly dangerous hotspot filter on my machine under Device Manager, after showing "hidden devices"!
I disabled it and the icon was okay for a while.
I thought that dangerous crap was only found in Windows 101 <- NOT a typo.
Windows polls the connection settings for me.
I believe them to be correct.
It also, weirdly, now gives me an additional icon message about pressing a button on the router.
What button?
A "power"/"reset" button?
...Genius!
Sometimes it also makes me enter the password twice.
The dialogue just disappears before reappearing blank.
This occurs only after initiating a fresh connection, after deleting the previous profile.
I keep deleting the profile but, for every new instance, it eventually ends up with this issue.
I've reinstalled wifi drivers.
These drivers were never a problem before.
I've allowed a bunch of Windows Updates since.
Releasing/renewing ipconfig does seem to perhaps change the icon, but the delay is a few minutes after the renew, which is long enough to indicate a hitch/loop somewhere, which eventually times out.
The state of the connection keeps changing from "connecting" to the error of the title with a red x next to it.
I've had it where the profile is deleted but Windows still tries to connect without one and, thus, with no password.
I actually don't know where these profiles are stored so, in desperation, I looked for mention of the profile in registry but there was none.
It seems I have dual connects fighting for one connection.
This is annoying.
It's the only error I have in Windows, now that I've fixed the odd Group Policy disablement of my optical drive data/file recording through Explorer.
Power Management is disabled for my wifi but enabled for my ethernet to allow it to power down, as I don't use it because of practicality (trailing wires) around my house.
