    windows 10 not able to connect to some networks


    Hello,

    There are a few networks I cannot connect to and I'm not sure why. Most networks like the one I have at home, I am able to connect, however when I am at my friend's house or some cafe, it doesn't let me connect to the internet. I tried updating my drivers and it still doesn't connect. It was able to connect few months ago when I had windows 8.1 but when I upgraded to windows 10, I started facing these problems. Anyone having the same problems?

    It doesn't tell me what to problem is either. It just says "Cannot connect to network"

    Thank you.

    Is there a Troubleshoot button that shows when this happens? If so, click on it.

    When I troubleshoot, it says I'm not connected to the internet so it just tries to connect to a different network
