    Firstly you must check the network driver option and update it to latest version then make sure all settings are correct for your wireless router. If all is correct then check your wireless connections. Check that it is turn on or, off. Follow the procedure:

    > Type control panel on start screen
    > Navigate to Apps filter and then go to Control Panel
    > Now, click on Wireless at left side and then check Airplane mode that should be turned off
    > Check that Wireless devices are on

    You can also check your current active networks by open setting charm then click on networking icon and choose your network under wireless network. See, if the option requiring any info then fill it.

    Hi.
    First try updating the driver for your wireless device. Make sure your wireless router is properly set up.
    If you’re still having trouble connecting, make sure that wireless connections are turned on:
    1>On the Start screen, type Control Panel, click the Apps filter, and then tap or click Control Panel.
    2>In the left pane, tap or click Wireless.
    3>In the right pane, verify that Airplane mode is off and that Wireless devices are on.
    Then, check the current connections:
    1>Open the Settings charm by swiping in from the right or pointing the mouse to the lower-right corner of the screen.
    2>Tap or click the networking icon, indicated by either a monitor with a network cable (for a wired connection) or a set of five stepped bars (for a wireless connection).
    3>Under the list of wireless networks, choose your network, and enter any credentials needed to connect to the network.

    make sure that you have downloaded and installed all of the latest updates, including optional updates.

    To check for driver updates,
    1. At the Start screen, type Windows Update.
    2. Click or tap Settings on the right side of the screen, and then select Install optional updates from the left results
    3. When the Windows Update control panel opens, tap or click on “Check for Updates” on the top left corner to receive a fresh list of updates

    Make sure that you have downloaded and installed all of the latest updates, including optional updates.

    To check for driver updates,
