tried that also just to see and the home network keeps saying authorization failed
Network Technician: Byron, PC Support Tech replied 7 months ago

Thanks. You will need to verify that you're using the correct wi-fi password.

Are you using a Windows computer that is connected to the wireless network?

(Not a computer that is wired directly to the router.)
