Windows 10: Wireless adaptor not working?

    Wireless adaptor not working?


    This is the basic desktop specs I have

    Dell Inspiron 660 Desktop 3rd gen Quad Core i5-3340 3.1Ghz 12G

    It looks like I may have bad wireless adaptor card even though the windows diagnostics show it is fine. It is able to detect one of my routers (have 2 in the house) but is unable to connect. Had reset router multiple times and other computers in the house are able to pick up and connect fine. What are the steps/tests I should undertake to confirm the wireless adaptor card is the problem. Can I replace it myself, am ok with basic troubleshooting. Will be glad to provide more information. Please advice.
