    Suddenly my desktop "can't connect to this network"


    I'm running WiFi on my desktop since a couple of months but tonight(since 2 days ago) I suddenly "can't connect to this network". I live in an apartment building for students and we share a Wi-Fi connection in the house. I've asked my neighbor and her connection works.
    My smartphone can connect to the network as usual, my chromecast can connect but not my PC.
    I run win 10 and use an ASUS PCE-AC68 network card.
    ATM I'm connected to my smartphone hotspot so it seems like there's nothing physically wrong with my equipment.

    I think I've tried all the obvious stuff. Checking for new drivers for my ASUS card, firewall is completely off, telling Win 10 to forget the connection and rebooting, waiting... I just get that annoying message "can't connect to this network" "close"...

    Here is a wireless network report(netsh wlan show wlanreport) but I don't have any idea what any of it means

    IDK what do... I've been without a real connection for almost 3 days... I've asked on three other forums...
    HELP ME You're my last hope!

    I've done this: went into device manager uninstalled the network adapter and removed driver software, also uninstalled malwarebytes(it was mentioned somewhere it might cause issues), rebooted, reinstalled the ASUS PCE-AC68 utility with driver.
    No difference, I still "can't connect to this network". I can connect to smartphone hotspot and nobody else in my building is have issues.

    Could it be some other driver??? Like my BIOS is 5 or 6 versions old. But then I wouldn't only have problems with one specific network right... This is so frustrating.
