OMEN by HP Laptop 15-dc1018nc
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,
I've recently found out out that my notebook out of the black stopped connecting to Wifi networks. It worked in train and after I left and went to the hotel, the wifi stopped working, although ethernet cable works. Already tried to connect to already known networks as Eduroam, my mobile hotspot and wifi at friends place. All need password now and after I type it in (correctly, tried it several times) it simply tries to connect, this takes for around half a minute and then it displays "can't connect to this network" type of thing.
Already tried to uninstall wifi drivers via device manager and scanning device manager to get new drivers, manually downloading new drivers from official hp site, hp assistant program automatically dowloading the drivers and also restoring factory settings with option of keeping the files. Now I'm that desperate, that I type to this forum.
