This is quite a common error in most Windows operating systems, and recently if you have upgraded to Windows 10, your Wi-Fi/Wireless connection might give this error – ‘Can’t Connect To This Network.’
Generally this error occurs with the fact that you have two networks configured with common name, but different passwords. And your Windows 10 PC identifies the same network by the same, but the password itself is changed, so it keeps trying to connect it.
Sometimes your Wi Fi would keep trying to connect, and won’t even give you any wireless connection error. Following quick solution is perfect for you to solve both of these issues.
So we’ve found the cause – Two network SSID’s are confliciting, so lets get rid of them, and connect to your wireless network freshly.
How to Fix Windows 10 Can’t Connect To This Network Error
Step 1 –
Click Windows Button > Search for ” Change Wi-Fi Settings”
Click on Manage Wi-Fi Settings link at the bottom of your network lists.
Find the current network name you are trying to connect to. This list of wireless network connection is of all the networks you have connected so far, so it might be a long one.
In my case, I am trying to connect to wireless network named – ‘Home’.
Click on this network name to expand options. And click on forget this network.
You’re basically done cleaning the Wireless Connection memory that caused problem.
Step 4 –
Go back to previous page, and click on your network name again.
Note – You can also use the same method to solve the issue with your Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 wireless settings, just that you have to locate the list of wireless connection there (Similar in Windows 8.1 and in ‘Network and Sharing’ Settings on Windows 7.)
