My laptop seems to be the only device I'm having a problem with connecting to my data.
It either says "Can't connect to this network", or endlessly tries connecting reading "Trying to Authenticate" until it eventually gives up and fails.

What led me to looking at the Event Viewer was running Network Troubleshooter during the state where my system was "Trying to Authenticate".
Naturally, it gave me the rundown of the conflicts it was running into and i read for complete info, see wireless connectivity information event, as well as, Wireless Diagnostic Informational Event.

I'm not too familiar with these Event Logs, so I'm not sure if all 5061 Event IDs mean the same for every pc so this is what mine has listed:

    Hi there,

    5061 Event ID is generated when a cryptographic operation (open key, create key, create key, and so on) was performed using a Key Storage Provider (KSP).

    Their might be two reasons any firewall settings that are blocking specific functions or you have drivers issues with the PC. Can you try the below troubleshoots and see if it is helpful

    Try running these network commands to manually reset the TCP/IP stack, release and renew the IP address, and flush and reset the DNS client resolver cache:

    Select Search on the taskbar, type Command prompt. The Command Prompt button will appear. To the right of it, select Run as administrator > Yes.

    At the command prompt, run the following commands in the listed order, and then check to see if that fixes your connection problem:

    Type netsh winsock reset and select Enter.

    Type netsh int ip reset and select Enter.

    Type ipconfig /release and select Enter.

    Type ipconfig /renew and select Enter.

    Type ipconfig /flushdns and select Enter.

    Uninstall the network adapter driver and restart

    You can also check other troubleshoots options here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/fix-wi-fi-connection-issues-in-windows-9424a1f7-6a3b-65a6-4d78-7f07eee84d2c#:~:text=Note%3A%20To%20use%20network%20reset,Internet%20%3E%20Status%20%3E%20Network%20reset.
