And until you enter the correct password, the Lenovo PC would not connect to the Wi-Fi network. So To reach out to the concern forget the current password that you entered. And set up a fresh connection with a new password and enjoy your Lenovo Gadget.

Restart the router

Another thing to note is from the router’s end since you can’t able to connect your Lenovo PC. Then the next cause behind it can be the router. Because due to long hours, the run router seems slow and resulting in Lenovo PC not connecting to Wi-Fi concerns. For such things, we recommend you restart your router and further attempt to connect the PC.

Install the Latest LAN Drivers

Every PC or Laptop runs on programs dedicated to specific tasks. And even after restarting the Router and ensuring the correct Wi-Fi Password, you are still getting the same thing. That means your Lenovo PC or Laptop does not have the latest LAN driver. Following this, the Lenovo PC can’t able to take command for connecting to a Wi-Fi network. In such a scenario, you need to download and install the latest LAN driver, otherwise, the issue persists. To do that, follow the steps below.

  4. Choose your PC/Laptop model.
  5. Now download and install the compatible LAN driver.
  6. Lastly, Restart your device and you are done.

Try Network Troubleshoot

Windows PCs and laptops have a dedicated tool called Network Troubleshooter that automatically detects the problem and fixes it from itself. And now as you have opted for the above-mentioned fixes and are still get satisfied. That means there is some in-between network programming. For this, Using the Network Troubleshooter tool would be the best option ever. All you need to do is, right-click over the wireless icon and select Troubleshoot Problems. After that, the system will fix the issue.

Reset the TC/IP Stack

Even after using the network troubleshooter if you are on the same problem side then resetting the TCP/IP would be the last option. Because this is the medium that regulates how a wireless connection is set up with the PC. You can reset this either through the PC’s Internal settings. But it would be a long process for you, so instead of that try command prompt (cmd). Simply Head to Command Prompt and open it with the run as administrator option. Now enter the “netsh int ip reset c:\restlog.txt” command and press enter. That’s it from now your PC may work to connect with a wireless network.

Besides that, you can try some more advanced fixes such as renewing your IP Address. But I think that would be more hard for a newbie. Instead of that, you can simply raise a request over Lenovo Support and book an appointment with technicians. As they will give personalized assistance in such hard tasks and perfectly fix your issue. Now I hope many of you get fixed the problem with your Wi-Fi PC resolved with these fixes.
