    Router is invisible just for my PC


    Hello
    I'm using Windows 10 64 bit on Dell Inspiron, now my PC cant detect my router (I can't see it via wireless ) D link 2750 U.
    I installed the latest firmware from the official site.
    My PC can detect any router but mine D link 2750U, and the D link 2750 U could be detected by the other PC but mine !

    Note: Sometimes my router be visible and I could connected to it but after a lot of reboots .

    Do you mean you can't connect to the router home page or you can't see it via wireless to connect to the net

    Have you rebooted the router?
    Have you reset the router to factory defaults via the reset button?
    Has the PC seen the router previously & with no changes to the pc or router it can now not be seen by the PC?
    Is there a setting under the router's webpage properties where you can hide the SSID from being broadcast? Is it set to broadcast the SSID?
    Can the problematic PC 'see' any other SSID? If not then that imo points to the wifi adapter going/failed.

    - I have rebooted e router.
    - When I did reset the router to the factory default my PC can see the router but after the configuration and the reboot the PC cant see the router.
    - There is an option Visibility Status to make the router "visible" or "invisible", and I always select "visible".
    - As I said My PC can detect any other "router but my router D link 2750U", and the "D link 2750 U" could be detected by the other PC but my PC!

    Use inSSIDer to see if your SSID is visible or not. If you have to, you will most likely have to do a reinstall of Windows 10 on the culprit machine. Your Gateway should not be playing hide and seek, unless you have turned off the SSID or made other changes in it.

    Off the wall thought, are you using channel, 12, 13 or 14 on the router and using a WiFi card/driver that can only work up to channel 11 ?

    I think the problem isn't on Wireless security, because my laptop can't see this router at all.
