    My Nexus 5 (6.0.1) will not connect nor see the SSID of a specific WiFi router. This just started about 20 hours ago, and would connect just fine prior.

    - Router/Modem is TP-Link TD-W8961N
    - Turned WiFi off/on multiple times, both phone and router
    - Rebooted both phone and router
    - My computer and iPad see and connect just fine
    - The phone sees and can connect to other SSIDs
    - Tried manually adding the SSID and password
    - Connected (via computer) to the router settings page... pretty sure there is no MAC filtering
    -- It's in Turkish, can't find where to change to English.

    Please help!

    Welcome to our AndroidForums, @scul86

    Hmm, it sounds/looks like you've tried all of the obvious stuff...:(

    Have you done the Settings -> Wi-Fi -> long-press the network/router in question and select "Forget network" and then try to re-connect? (that's about the only thing I don't see listed above)

    Also, can you connect to/through that router via another device?

    Problem is, I cannot see the network ID in that page.
    I did go to Settings -> Wi-Fi -> Menu -> Saved networks and deleted the saved ID. I then went Wi-Fi -> Add Network and put in the SSID and Password... still cannot connect.

    As far as via another device, I have not tried as I am not sure how to set that up via my laptop (Windows 7, HP Pavilion dv6)

    Well, I woke up this morning, and all was well. Not sure why it went off line, nor why it came back up.
