Solved!

after i replaced the PSU and GPU in my HP Pavillion desktop, the wifi stopped working.

HP Recommended

i am upgrading my pc, i bough a new power supply and video card.

after i successfully replaced and installed them, i booted up my PC, but it showed that no networks or wifi connections are available.

 

I read that maybe it is something to do with the antenni?, i did notice something that looked like antenni tangeled up in the psu cables, i did not  take them out. but i have no idea what the probelm could be.

Thank you for the additional information, @henry321.

 

Yes, I suggest leaving the side panel off of the computer  Then, move the antenae around in the case and watch the signal.  You may have to route it through an opening in the case so it is outside of the case.  I believe that I have read this is the best way to get a good signal.

@henry321, welcome to the forum.

 

When requesting help you should always include the make/model (i.e. p6-xxxx) of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them.

 

Before you reply, check the wire that was entangled in the PSU cable to see if it is connected to the wifi adapter card.  If so, you should reroute it so it gives you better reception.

It is, i think is is just a case of bad signal, i have my pc next the the internet router now, and am using the ethernet cable for a wired connection, but i can also see that i am getting some wifi signal, does the orientaion of the antenni inside the case have much of an effect on the signal it recieves?
