Hi

 

By press the F12 Button on the keyboard the wireless should turn on. Also please find the link given below might help you to troubleshoot as well incase you have any issue.

Re: how do you enable the wireless adapter in a HP Pavilion g series computer

I have had exactly the same problem. Only had laptop a few days. Wifi was working fine then suddenly stopped. F12 doesn't make any difference as airplane mode wasn't on. Can only use Wifi with an ethernet cable at the moment. Please help! I did the troubleshoot and it is saying the 'wifi adaptor has been disabled' Why does that happen and how can I turn it back on?

Go to start type in device in the search bar

Click on network adapters
Click on w.e. has WiFi adapter in it
Enable WiFi
And then click f12
