If everything is fine, the second thing to check is that the access point you want to connect must accept the WPS authentication. There are chances that some of the routers may not support this.

6. It is good, if you keep all the settings on the default mode. You may customize it according to your convenience, however, it is not recommended.  Moreover, make sure that  “Automatic advanced settings” box is already checked and if not check it.
