at home,work or at the airport (wifi)?
wgn1, wild guess #1 , HOME ! (answering to home.
well do all things wifi fail at home or just the G1. fails?
if yes all fail, that is a wifi router problem. or forgot your log in credentials?
No only G1 fails!
did the G1 ever work for you at home everbefore??? hummmmmm
buy used, and wifi dead? (history not told)
did you know most old PCs have no wifi new this is a fact.
it must be added, called a CARD (WIFI)
2014 made, 8 years old
I see goons sell them used as new on amazoned.
still used it is.
sold new with on of these 4 HP allowed cards
HP also bans, other cards (black listed by HP. (not good that)
- Realtek 802.11 b/g/n (1x1)
- Meditek 802.11 b/g/n (1x1) with Bluetooth v4.0 combo
- Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (1 x 1 ) WiFi with Bluetooth 4.0 combo
- Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260AN 802.11 a/b/g/n (2 x 2) WiFi with Bluetooth 4.0 combo
test #1, go to device manager and see what wifi card is there.
or missing, totally..
the driver must be there and from HP.com or it will not work.
If w10 plug and play fails. using wired ETHERNET cable to the router
this PC never oncc came with w10 , only w7 or W8
so how did W10 get here.?
but lucky you
, HP does have w10 64bit wifi drivers here, in fact, all drivers of this PC..
so next you ask how to get them if WIFI is dead now.
well 2 ways.
use the ethernet port to a cable same name to the router port same name.
or get the drivers, using a working internet PC and copy them to a thumb drive then move the thumb drive to dead wifi PC
and load them, ( 1 driver it is and matches 1 of 4 cards)
here is the hit list
1: the card must be there.
2: and be a HP card. (others do fail)
3: and a matching driver loaded.. card/driver/OS matched and HP matched..
4: and connect,. works. now. using proper credentials wifi
that is how the cookie crumbles..
