Cannot detect my home wifi but can detect my neighbours? Other devices can find my wifi

HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hello all

My HP Pavillion cannot pick up my home wifi. It picks up my neighbours and other hotspot  wifi  perfectly. Every other device including other mobiles and laptops can pickup my wifi but it is just my laptop that can't. I don't know what to do. I have tried restarting my router, even took out wires and put them back in. Still no use. Why does every other device pickup my wifi but my laptop cannot?

Go see if it is in your "known" networks and "forget" it. The stored configuration settings for your own hotspot/access point may be corrupted.
