For 3 weeks and now going on 4 weeks, I have been experiencing wireless networking issues with my HP Pavilion 550-153w Desktop PC.
Sometimes when it goes into sleep mode, and when I wake it from sleep mode, the wireless network adapter doesn't detect and connect to my wireless network in a timely or quick manner.
I have followed the troubleshooting steps from Microsoft Windows and from HP. The problems did not help. I have been over at www.tenforums.com trying to get help as well. My last options are to get help from someone on here or from HP or Microsoft.
The computer is out of warranty, so I don't think HP will want to help.
Please assist me into getting this resolved....
Thanks, Jesse Williams

Good Day. A warm welcome to the HP community. I reviewed the case relating to the notebook wireless connection. I will be delighted to assist you here.
Superb description, brilliant troubleshooting and terrific observations made before posting. Kudos to you for that. 🙂
To assist you with accurate information I would require more information regarding this.
- When did this issue start?
- Did you do any changes to the notebook?
Go to device manager,
Open power management under network,
Check the box - allow this computer to wake up this device.
If the issue persists, I have a few more steps to resolve the issue:
Since you've already reinstalled drivers, I would recommend using an Ethernet cable (Wired) and update your Wi-Fi drivers using this link
Update the bios by visiting this link or through support assistant using an Ethernet cable.
Now try to connect to the internet wireless.
The best way to do that is using the HP Guided Troubleshooter:
Click here to access it (simply select your description of the issue from the bottom of the screen to gain access to the next set of steps that should resolve your concern).
Let me know how it goes.
