HP250 will not find wifi network that other devices are finding

HP250 has always connected to wifi easily before.  After moving to a new location - our wifi does not show up on the list generated by the wifi wizard, but other wifi names (probably neighbors?) do show up.

Perhaps the router/modem is also new on the new location ?

- If it is new, has it been configured to broadcast its name openly ?
