My older laptop is not showing my new wifi network.  It will show my neighbors.  It will connect when connected by ethernet cable to the router.  I checked the wifi router and it says it is updated.   Suggestions>

Some older wireless cards may have trouble connecting to newer routers. You cam try updating the drivers but if that don’t work you can pick up a wireless USB adapter.

Just want to say THANK YOU!  I ordered  a wireless adapter, it arrived today and I was able to connect my old but perfectly fine laptop to my new wireless network.  Saved me money by not having to buy a new laptop.  THANK YOU!!!
