Welcome to the HP Forums. I understand your new computer is unable to connect to a wireless network. I apologize for the long wait, but I will do my best to assist you. First, please try the following tests and provide the results:
1. Try connecting this computer to a network using an Ethernet cable.
2. Try connecting the computer to a different wireless network.
3. You stated you get a message stating the password is incorrect. Please be absolutely certain that the password is correct.
4. Ping the IP address. For more information on this, please review this Microsoft Technet document: Test Network Connection with Ping
These tests are meant to narrow down the source of error. It will prove one of the following issues:
- The computer is simply unable to connect to a (wireless) network.
- There is a communication issue between this computer and the wireless network.
After these simple tests are completed, please try the troubleshooting steps in this HP document: Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet
Following these steps will address the computer's inability to connect to a wireless network. To an extent, the steps also troubleshoot the connection between the computer and the network. I believe this will resolve your issue. Either way, please post your results. Thank you for bringing this issue to the HP Forums. Have a great day!

I am having problems with my hp pavilion laptop. Ive had it for just under a year and ever since i have had it theres been problems with it not being able to connect to wifi. It says the password is incorrect when i know it isnt so dont even attempt to say are you sure its correct as its the same password for the other 10 wifi devices within my house which all work perfect.
I have to use an ethernet connection to use internet and then it eventually works with wifi after i use ethernet first.
When i switch it off and then back on after an hour or so it goes through the same again, password wrong, cant connect to wifi. Its driving me insane as its definitely a HP issue as i have never ever ever had any problems with any other device since wifi was invented.
I have sent it to HP to sort it out and guess what they said they fixed it so i log on using wifi and it says wrong password cant connect to wifi, so ethernet then wifi then turn off then turn back on then same again no wifi/
Cn anyone help and if so please do a step by step guide. I am sick to the back teeth and will never buy any hp product again,

I have the same problem, apparently updating helps fix the problem. Idk if it's an HP/Windows 8 problem. It might be both. In anycase, I also won't be buying HP anymore. This is absolutely frustrating.

I posted on here before about this. I have been annoyed by this constant problem since I bought this laptop. Never connects as it says the password is wrong even though it is right. Tried everything. sometimes it will work for a wee bit then stops again. clearly a problem with hp as all other laptops, tablets and phones work. please can someone help?

I have an HP Pavilion 15-e021sa and have also had these Wifi connection issues described since purchasing in Nov 2013. Ethernet connection works perfectly....but this defeates the purpose of have a device with wireless functionalty. HP phone support have very generoulsy helped me three times before suggesting that the issue was probably with my internet provider and I should contact them. Internet provider did same thing as HP and managed to connect me for the day I called but thereafter the issue returned. Sounds like the solution to this, as previous user suggested, is to sell it. Very dissappointing as the machine is generally quite reliable and I have had not other issues.
I was using Win 8.1, but upgraded to Win 10 as soon as it became available....but that made not difference.
I use 12 other wireless devices without issues......and most as older than this newer device.....just the HP Pavilion 15-e021sa device that gives me this issue.
