New Linksys Velop network at our house and multiple devices connecting no problem - macbook, iphones, pc Windows 10, desktop Windows 7 BUT my laptop Windows 7 does not connect. Sees the signal but hangs up in authentication. Wireless adaptor is Intel Centrino Wireless N 2230. I've updated drivers, deleted all connection profiles, tried static IP, rebooted 9999 times. Any ideas welcome!
We understand you have recently upgraded your home network and are now having issues connecting your Windows 7* system to your wireless network using the Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 2230.
To increase compatibility with your wireless adapter, even if (or specially since) it's a brand new setup it's important to make sure that your WiFi System is using the latest firmware:

Thank you for this report. It seems that your driver is a bit outdated. Since you're having issues, instead of simply installing the latest version let's try a clean installation:
1. Download and save our latest Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for your adapter:
1. For Wireless: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27237 WiFi_Win7_64_19.70.0.exe
2. For Bluetooth®: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27228 BT_Win7_64_17.1.1411.exe
2. Under Programs and Features in the Control Panel, uninstall any instance of the "Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software" and "Intel® Wireless Bluetooth." If prompted, choose to "discard settings."
3. Go to the Device Manager > Network Adapters > Right click on your Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 and uninstall it. Make sure to select the option to "Delete the driver software for this device."
4. Clear out your temporary files: Press the Windows* Key + R to open the run box. Type Cleanmgr.exe and press OK. Here you will need to make sure Temporary Files are checked, you may uncheck everything else (unless you're ok with the extra wait) then press OK.
5. Install both of the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software packages that you downloaded back in step one.
6. Reboot your computer.
Let us know if the issue continues after this.
