    Windows Security Login pop up when connecting to wireless Network


    I recently started having this problem where every time I try to connect to a wireless network or even open the Network settings, I am prompted to login by Windows security. I have tried to log-in using my local PC login info as well as my microsoft account login info and neither of those work. As a result I am unable to use the wifi on my computer. This does not happen when I connect with ethernet cable. How do I disable/resolve this?

    This pops up:

    Any Network shares that you have the computer set up to connect to? That pop-up is when the computer needs to connect to a Share, not the Wifi.

    What is the manufacturer and model of the Gateway that you are using to connect to.

    Same issue here. I have two Windows 10 laptops and I can't get one of them to connect to my home Wifi network. Whenever I try to connect, I get the "Windows security" popup, asking me for credentials. This is NOT the "Wireless password" popup, but something else.

    My network card is "Atheros AR5B93 Wireless Network Adapter", running on an Aspire 7741G laptop. Upgrading to newer drivers from the Windows Update Catalog, will let you know how it goes.

    Upgrading the drivers solved nothing. Neither did unchecking the power option in Device Manager.
    What I ended up doing is using another router. With this new setup, the problem doesn't seem to show up any more.

    I had the same problem and managed to solve it like so:

    I went to Network Settings:

    And then selected "Network Reset." Doing this will make Windows forget the connection credentials for the WiFi, so you'll have to re-enter them after you restart your computer, but I didn't get burdened by the Windows Security pop-up that was blocking me from connecting.
