Unable to detect wireless networks after update

HP Recommended

A few weeks ago I had an update for Windows 10.  After the update, I can only use an ethernet cable to connect to the internet.  My computer doesn't even notice any wireless networks.

 

I checked the drivers for my HP ENVY h8-1534 and they only have wireless drivers for Windows 8 and 8.1

 

I've had Windows 10 for a while, but it was only after this update that my wireless capabilities have been stopped.

It seems that you need correct drivers to make the wi-fi working again...so i suggest you type in your computer model...so i can advice you what drivers to look for...and where...

You can try those windows 8/8.1 drivers too as they might work on Win 10 too...

https://support.hp.com/ro-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-envy-h8-1500-desktop-pc-series/5330773/model/533...

 

Do you have the Ralink or the Realtek chip? Use AIDA64 to identify the adapter maker...

if its the Realtek download a driver from here:

https://www.realtek.com/en/component/zoo/advanced-search/512?Itemid=276

if its the Ralink here:

If none of the above work...then I suggest you buy an external USB wifi adapter that has support for W10 (which is cheap enough these days) 

Good luck
