When trying to connect to a wireless network, after saying Checking network requirements for a while, Windows 8.1 says:

Can’t connect to this network

What I’ve found is that this is probably because you have a saved network with the same name, but with different settings saved against it. To fix the Can’t connect to this network error:

  1. Click Close
  2. Click View connection settings
  3. Click Manage known networks
  4. Select your network
  5. Click Forget network

If Windows 8.1 is still saying that it Can’t connect to this network, leave a reply on the forum.
