Connecting to a 5.0 wireless signal

HP Recommended
HP Envy 20
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I have an HP Envy 20 touch screen system.  I am trying to locate the wireless signal from my new modem, which is a 5.0 and it is not showing up on my network.  What needs to be done?

Thank you

Mario

Let me take a moment to thank you for posting on the HP Support Forums. 

 

I understand that you have an HP Envy 20 touch screen PC and it is unable to locate the wireless signal from the new modem which works on 5 GHz network. I'll do my best to help.

 

To provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details: 

  • The exact product model no. This link will help you to find the model no: http://hp.care/2bygf7l
  • Is it a modem or a router?
  • Do other devices/computers (iv available) connect to the modem?
  • Does the PC detect other networks?

Meanwhile, I recommend you to perform the steps as described in detail from this link

 

Please feel free to reply. I'll be here to help you. Cheers! 🙂

I have a modem from ATT.  My ENVY20 product code is 00179-60197-57815-AAOEM.  My samsung phone can see the 5.0 signal.  No other HP computers in the house (3 total) can see the 5.0 modem.

Thank you for your assistance

  3. Click Device Manager (located in the top left of screen)
  4. Click the > sign to expand the Network adapters entry.
  5. Right-click the wireless adapter and click Properties.
  6. Click the Advanced tab, click 802.11n mode, under value Select Enable.

 

Let me know. Thanks again!
