Your notebook is only supported by HP for windows.


You can find the ethernet (wired network) drivers for Linux on the Realtek website.


Wireless is going to be a problem...You can see this related discussion...


I suggest you visit an Ubuntu forum and see if there are any recent developments if the above info does not help.

To supplement Paul's excellent advice, I offer this....


Because if/when you goto the Ubuntu forums you will be told to try the following...

When troubleshooting wireless, it's important that your system is fully updated by opening a terminal, CTRL+ALT+T. Using a wired internet connection, please run:

sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade

and reboot if necessary.

If the issues persist, it is recommended that you install pastebinit, by running:
Code:  --    sudo apt install pastebinit

This will enable the wireless script to, upon your approval, upload the obtained data to pastebin, creating at the same time a link to it in your terminal, permitting you to paste it to a forum thread.

Once that's done, download and run the wireless info script, which will gather information to help diagnose your system. You can run it using this command:--
wget -N -t 5 -T 10 && \
chmod +x wireless-info && \

It will create the file "wireless-info.txt" at the location it is run from, and depending on its size, an additional archive called "wireless-info.tar.gz". If you prefer, you can post the file directly to pastebin yourself. Sensitive information like MAC addresses and WPA/WEP keys are masked automatically.

If you aren't able to connect to the internet with the affected system, including via a wired connection, just navigate to using another device and follow the instructions there on how to the run wireless script without an internet connection.
