Question Can't connect to wifi after using ethernet.

I've been using a pre-built PC for a while now, will be building a new one, and this one won't be using Ethernet anymore. I tried going back to WIFI, but now when I open the WIFI tab, it says "Windows Can't Connect To This Network." Yes I've checked that the Wifi adapter is open in Control Panel. How do I fix this?

Here's a picture below of the issue. (I put a Discord link since it wants a link for in order to insert a photo).

Nope, still only shows the 2 networks, with 0 signal and when I try to connect it says that it cannot connect.

Picture above ^
Is it possible the SSID of the connection you want to use is hidden ?

There's a setting in many routers that can keep the SSID from being broadcast so random people won't try and connect to it...you may have to dig into your router settings to sort this one out...might not be your PC causing the issue.
