Can you open a terminal and post the output from
sudo lshw -C network
and
iwconfig
and
iwlist scan
and
rfkill list

Connect to your router with an ethernet cable

Or copy the output to a text file then copy it to another PC

Have you tried switching your firewall off? Because sometime firewall causes some issues while connecting to the internet.
