Re: HP Pavilion windows 8 wont connect to Wifi internet

Hello sadwatch.


Welcome to the HP Forums. I understand your new computer is unable to connect to a wireless network. I apologize for the long wait, but I will do my best to assist you. First, please try the following tests and provide the results:


1. Try connecting this computer to a network using an Ethernet cable.

2. Try connecting the computer to a different wireless network.

3. You stated you get a message stating the password is incorrect. Please be absolutely certain that the password is correct.

4. Ping the IP address. For more information on this, please review this Microsoft Technet document: Test Network Connection with Ping


These tests are meant to narrow down the source of error. It will prove one of the following issues:


- The computer is simply unable to connect to a (wireless) network.

- There is a communication issue between this computer and the wireless network.


After these simple tests are completed, please try the troubleshooting steps in this HP document: Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet


Following these steps will address the computer's inability to connect to a wireless network. To an extent, the steps also troubleshoot the connection between the computer and the network. I believe this will resolve your issue. Either way, please post your results. Thank you for bringing this issue to the HP Forums. Have a great day!
