So if you see a lot of networks from your laptop this might be your issue. look at the next image for an example of overlapping networks that will cause issues! 2.4Ghz network overlaps What can you do? You can see on the image that there is no free channel available, no matter the channel you pick, you will always overlap with other networks.

If you get this error be sure to check to see if your preferred device is connected to the internet. If on wifi check to see if you are connected to an accesspoint.
