I had a Thinkpad that came with Vista and later upgraded to Windows 7. It came with an Atheros card . It never worked correctly. I had to change it for an Intel that worked great. So my thought was that if noting else works, try a different card.

Power off your Router for 10 seconds and then power it on and check the status

What version of Windows is installed on your PC ?


If you have Windows 10 then:

 In the search box on the taskbar, type Command prompt, press and hold (or right-click) Command prompt, and then 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 press Enter.
 Type netsh int ip reset and press Enter.
 Type ipconfig /release and press Enter.
 Type ipconfig /renew and press Enter.
 Type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.


You can Also run Windows Network Troubleshooter.

That means you have to open command prompt as administrator.

Click the Start button. In the search box, type Command Prompt, and then, in the list of results, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Create a Restore Point first.

Then try to remove and reinstall the driver:
    In Device Manager, select Network adapters > the network adapter name.  
    Right-click the network adapter, and then select Uninstall > Delete the driver software for this device check box > OK to confirm you want to uninstall it.  
    After uninstalling the driver, select the Start  button > Power > Restart.
    After your PC restarts, Windows will automatically look for and install the network adapter driver. Check to see if that fixes your connection problem.  If that driver is not available, you will need to connect to the internet via ethernet cable or download it to USB on another computer.

I'm not sure yet but I think it can be a Hardware problem.

It can also be a Windows Problem. if you could install a fresh copy of Windows and install WIFI drivers then we could make sure if it's a Hardware problem or software problem.

When I first got  the  laptop I had this issue, I researched this problem on the internet and Atheros AR5007 802 1b/g wifi adapter was the issue, I do believe that it is the hardware issue, I wanted to try before replacing the hardware first, thanks for all the info.

Just one more question.

Did you get the WIFI drivers using your HP service tag / serial number and from HP website ?

if not, then try it once.  download WIFI drivers,  uninstall current WIFI drivers,  restart your PC,  install WIFI drivers.
