Solved!

HP Stream 13 cannot connect to wifi network

Stream Notebook PC 13
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi everyone, this has been driving me nuts for almost 4 days now and i need some help!  

 

Brief history:  I bought this computer for my son when he started high school.  I never saw him using it so I asked him why.  He told me he couldn't log on to Windows for about a week so he stopped trying.  Why he never told me this is another issue.  So i did a windows 10 install from a usb that I made from the Microsoft website.  Windows 10 is up and running but the problem now is, it won't connect to any wi-fi networks.  It recognizes the two I have (my regular & one running from my printer).  But whenever I put in the product keys it always says "can't connect to this network".  Like I said, I've been trying for about 4 days now and can't figure it out.  I'm fairly technical and can follow all the tips, tricks & restores that is available on the internet.  It just doesn't want to connect (and yes I'm spelling the pass key correctly).  From simply resetting the clock, to going deep into the bios & coding configurations.  I just can't do it.

 

Please help!!

I reviewed your post and I understand that the computer is not connecting to your home network.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

Have you tried connecting the PC to a different network? (Like public wifi or your phone’s hotspot)

 

Meanwhile, I recommend you follow the below steps and check if it helps.

 

Powercycle the network:

1. Shut down your notebook.

2. Unplug the power to your router.

3. Unplug the power to your modem.

4. Wait at least 45 seconds.

5. Plug in the modem, and wait for it to come back online.

6. Plug in the router, and wait for it to come back online.

7. Turn on your notebook, and test your connection.

 

Disable the Power Off option for the adapter:

1. Open Device Manager. (Win Key+R > type devmgmt.msc > OK)

2. Expand the Network adapters.

3. Right click on the Ethernet/Wireless Adapter and click Properties.

4. Click the Power Management tab.

5. Remove the check mark beside Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.

6. Click OK.

7. Test.

 

Reset the TCP/IP settings on your PC:

1. Go to your start screen/menu and type CMD.

2. Right click on the command prompt icon and chose Run as administrator.

3. In the window that opens type "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" without quotes, and press enter.

4. Restart your PC and test.

 

It may also help to reset the winsock catalogue:

1. Go to your start screen/menu and type CMD.

2. Right click on the command prompt icon and chose Run as administrator.

3. In the window that opens type "netsh winsock reset" without quotes, and press enter.

4. Restart your PC and test.

 

Reinstall the network adapter drivers:

1. Download the drivers from here but do not run them yet.

2. Go to your start screen/menu and type Device Manager.

3. Expand Network adapters.

4. Right click on the wireless adapter and choose Uninstall.

5. Run the downloaded drivers from step 1.

6. Restart your PC and test.

 

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
