I just got a new modem from Rogers. All of my computers/ipad can connect, except one portable Dell Inspiron. Last week, Rogers asked me to exchange my modem for a more recent one. Which I did. I was able to connect with computers (desktop and portable) and Ipad. But can't with my Dell Inspiron which is an older computer. Strangely, with that same computer I can connect to any other networks except mine at home. As required, I select my network, enter my password and the result is always "can't connect to that network". Can someone has a clue of what could be the source of the problem? A technician looked at it and the settings seems all ok. But still can't connect to my own network at home.

I had a similar problem, so I know first hand how annoying it is. Before we jump in, we need more information, so, can you kindly confirm 2 things:
Look forward to hearing back
The first thing I would do is delete the network profile, then reboot the laptop and try to connect it again. Here is a link to the instructions to delete the existing profile:
ok, good guess, no cigar.... Have you drilled down into the wifi adapter settings to ensure that it doesn't have a static IP address set, which is out of the IP range of the Hitron. If you look at the connected devices list on the Hitron user interface, is there any evidence that the laptop is connecting to the modem even though the laptop is indicating that there is no connection available?
