Long story but here goes - hope someone can help.
I was trying to install software today on my laptop and a dll file was missing. All the advice i found said one of the things to check was that all drivers were up to date. I have spent this evening checking all drivers and updated where necessary. One required me to restart my lap top which i did.
When the laptop was signed back in, I kept getting "No Internet, secured" against my broadband router. I checked phones and Ipad and all are connected fine to the wireless network. I am currently using a wired connection to write this, but i did check and when turning my phone into a hotspot, I was able to connect my laptop to that.
Here are the necessary bits:
Laptop is a HP Pavilion AF284NV
I have done a network reset on my laptop
My router is a Talk Talk DG8041W
Status light is white/blue (however you see it)
Wireless adaptor is an Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless - AC3165
We have 2 phones, 2 Ipads, 1 TV and 1 Xbox all showing a connection and working on wifi.
As my laptop has restarted, I can't even roll back the driver. Please can someone help shed some light on what could be wrong.
30 minutes after posting the above, my wifi has started to work. Would still be interested to know if anyone has any ideas.

Yes - I did a network reset already and that didn't help. I still got the same issue.

Hi @Paulsteed ,
Have you tried deleting / forgetting the wireless network from your laptop, restarting the laptop, and then scanning for and reconnecting to your Wi-Fi network ?
