i'm try my best to solve this issue with help of article on different place but they could not solve my problem.

some people says to enable microsoft virtual adapter, or upadate wifi dirvers, firstly disable then refresh and finally enable wifi adatper but all tricks are useless for me. 

 

i'm try to install letest drivers by Hp Support Assisstant and aslo manually but problem still exist. 

this issue comes only in windows 10 in my notebook. few days latter i'm thought it could be my laptop hardware fault but in my friends laptop, same issue exist and he has same notebook as i have.

 

if you may familar with this problem and have any working solution then feel free help me. 

Thanks for your support!!!

I just got my new laptop and I am having the same issue. 

HP ENVY Notebook - 17-s041nr (Touch) (ENERGY STAR)

Model #: X0S42UA
Serial #: [Personal Information Removed]

 

NOTHING I HAVE SEEN IN FORUMS IS THE LEAST BIT HELPFUL. NOTHING ON GOOGLE SEARCH IS EITHER.

You people are SUPPORT for gosh sake.. Stop sending us frustrated folk on endless wild goose chases. OR making us pay for answers. 

 

There are too many threads--too many people with this issue. FIX IT ALREADY!!! Don't send us to Microsoft. YOU FIX IT. 

NO "Im sorry" 

NO "go here" 

No" fill out this issues" 


POST A FIX!!!
NOW!!!
