Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi all,

 

Yesterday I noticed that my Wifi connection on my HP PC (Windows 10) dropped and gave me the notifiation “Not connected - no connections available”. I hadn’t done anything different so it was a bit odd. After looking through the device manager and some quick fix guides online, I uninstalled the driver to my 802.11 network adapter WLAN with hopes for it to restart on bootup.

It never did.

 

I have now gone through multiple guides online and tried all sorts of things (netcfg -d, netsh winsock reset, physically taking out my adapter and plugging it back in) all to no avail. A system recovery didn’t even work, and actually showed that the cause might have been a recent Windows update.

 

Does anyone have any idea of what I can do?? I’m in desperate need of help here as this is my only desktop on hand right now and in the time of Zoom, that’s all I have. Thanks everyone. 

For more info, I have the HP Pavillion p6741c  desktop.

You have the exact same adapter that I do. Mine is working great. If you can get into the adapter properties make sure that your driver version is 1030.38.712.2019 and is set for WPA. This driver is the latest version Hope this helps.
