3. Check whether you have enabled Hide SSID option on the router.
Note: If you have enabled it, the wireless name is not invisible in the Wi-Fi list the first time. You need to add the profile manually.
4. Make sure your computer/device is still within the range of your router/modem. Try moving closer if you are currently too far away.
5. Check the channel of the router is supported by your wireless clients. Some clients don’t support some wireless channels due to the Region/Country limits.
