Thank you for posting on HP Forums,
Riddle_Decipher is at your service.
As I Understand you have issues connecting to the wifi network,
No worries, as I'll be glad to help you, that said, I'll need a few more details to dissect your concern & provide an accurate solution:
Did you reinstall the network drivers? or update it from the HP website using a wired internet connection?
While you respond to that, I recommend the below steps:
Go to Device manager > select the WIFI drivers under network adapter> Right click go to properties > Under properties go to Power Management Tab> Uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
If the issue persists, continue with the below steps:
If your computer has a wireless key or button on or near the keyboard and the wireless activity light is off or amber in color, then press the key or button to enable your wireless adapter. This key might be the F10 key, F12 key or labeled with a symbol of an airplane.
If wireless activity comes on or the activity light turns blue, you have enabled wireless on your system. Try connecting to the Internet again. If problems persist, continue using these steps.
If your computer does not have a wireless key or the wireless activity lights remains off or orange then continues using these steps.

There are several places to look,
and other ways to determine whether it is present or just hiding.
netsh wlan show interfaces netsh wlan show drivers msinfo32 ipconfig -all
So if you can post any further details I would be grateful.
if in doubt please ask.
