Switch isn't detecting a wifi signal?

-

I am trying to connect my Switch to my Wifi network at home and it isn’t showing up on the list as an available wifi connection. I can connect to the same wifi connection with everything else in my house, so I know the connection is working just fine. Is the wifi chip in my Switch broken or do I need to do something special to get it to pick up all of the nearby wifi connections?

If you know how to do it, try logging into your router/modem and changing the security settings for the wifi signal to WPA2/WPA and it should correctly show up in the list of Wifi connections after this has been modified.
