Hi,

 

Noob warning: I know very little about hardware!

 

 

I'm trying to connect to my local wireless network without success.

Here's what I did so far:

 

1. I started the WLAN AutoConfig Service

2. In network and sharing center, tried Setup a new connection or network | Setup a new network but unconfigured devices never show up (waited much more than the 90 seconds the dialogue suggests).

3. Tried windows troubleshooting... no success

4. In Device Manager, initially I only had "Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (2) I219-LM" listed. Then I installed the wireless driver downloaded from hp support site and now I have a bunch of "WAN Miniport" installed (IKEv2, IP, IPv6, L@PT, Network Monitor, PPPOE, PPTP, SSTP), which seem irrelevant for wireless.

 

I wonder two things:

 - if my workstation has wireless capabilities -  this page suggests yes: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-z240-tower-workstation/8354563/document/c04887696

 

- if yes, how should I proceed?

 

Txs for all the help

Hi:

 

Wifi is optional in most HP business class desktops.

 

I can tell you right away that if you only see the Intel ) I219-LM listed there, then your PC does not have built in wireless networking.  You would also be seeing some model wifi adapter listed there if your PC had an internal wifi card.

 

You can easily add wireless networking by purchasing an external USB wireless network adapter, or you can purchase a supported internal wifi card setup like this one...
