I own a HP Pavilion Notebook (Product Number: F2S97EA#AB9). I bought it a few years ago and there were hardly any problems with it. However, in the past days, there is this problem that keeps bothering me. Almost every time I boot the PC, I am not automatically connected to my router (Wi-Fi Network), forcing me to do the Windows Diagnosis in order to try to find the problem and solve it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but either way I believe it is tremendously anoying a person trying to surf the internet and finding out that he/she needs to do the whole diagnosis thing just to Google a simple thing. At first, I thought the problem was on the router, but then I checked my mobile phone and the internet connection was just fine. So, my last thought was the problem is in the computer. During my inumerous attempts to solve this issue, I noticed that the PC in fact connects to the router, but it cannot identify the network (when I go to the Control Panel, in the Network category, I notice that, underneath Wi-Fi, it says Unknown Network, or something similar). And by not being able to identify the network, when I open Google Chrome to surf the net (or when I open any other browser/program that needs internet to run), it says that I am not connected to the internet, although I am connected to the router. This has been happening constantly, and I didn't know what else to do. If someone could help me would be great. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your answer.
Regarding your questions, yes, I tried to fix this issue on my own before I posted the question, but never completely successful. What I used to do was to run the Windows Network Diagnosis and, after two or three attempts running that same diagnosis, the internet was working again. But I never did anything further. Regarding your second question, I honestly cannot remember. Today, when I booted my PC, the issue appeared again, and it has been like this for one or two months (I haven't reported this issue before because I thought it would eventually fix itself, but I was wrong). It seems now that I cannot boot the computer without this issue popping up.
However, I just tried some of the solutions that were in the website you provided on your link. I updated the controller and run the HP Diagnosis. I don't know yet if it has worked, since I have not yet rebooted the PC, but I'll let you know when I know the outcome.
Thanks again for your answer and hope to hear from you soon.
