    A while back, there was a big Windows 10 update and since then, I have not been able to get wifi directly from my main router. Oddly, I can connect to wifi through my D-Link extender, which has the same name, with EXT5G appended to the name. I've deleted the networks on Windows 10 and started from scratch, rebooted the router numerous times, etc. and I still can't get it to work. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    You are not alone
    Some people have had success by simply running the Trouble Shooter
    • Right click Windows icon (bottom left)
    • Control Panel (Icon View)
    • Troubleshooting
    • Network and Internet > Connect to the Internet
    • Advanced
    • Run as Administrator
    • Next

    If that doesn't help then you could try updating the wifi driver
    • Right click Windows icon (bottom left)
    • Device Manager
    • Network Adapters
    • Right click your wifi adapter
    • Update Driver Software

    These are the 2 simplest procedures to try, there are more but then you are getting into writing Command Prompts and other techy stuff
    Good luck :)

    All the best, woz of oz

    another thing to look at is on the router itself -- can you do a reset (not a reboot)? using (at worst) a cable you should also be able to access its setup information.
