Just bought a new modem and my HP pc will not connect or find my WiFi

My HP computer is around 4 years old and I just recently got a new modem and my computer won’t pick up or find my WiFi or even show it as a possible network. I think it might be a software issue but I’m not 100% sure and need help figuring out how to get my WiFi to show up.

Make sure your modem is set to broadcast on both the 2.4 and 5.0 GHz WIFI bands.


Your notebook probably  has a single band wifi adapter that only works on the 2.4 GHz WIFI band.
