I have only just purchased my HP17-AB301NA 17.3 inch Pavilion power gaming laptop a few days ago. I have found that an issue with the WIFI saying it is connected, but webpages will not open or load. I reset my computer and the WFI works for a few minutes but then decides not to work anymoe and forces me to resart the computer again. Any help?

Hi @lewisoldfield11 ,

 

Thank you for posting on HP Forums,

The Barachiel is at your service.

 

I understand you are in need of support,

I'll be glad to help you out, however, for an accurate solution I will need more details:

 

Have you attempted any steps on your own before posting on the HP Forums?

When was the last time it worked without these issues? 

 

Meanwhile, follow below steps and check if it helps.

 

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.

If the issue persists, follow the steps in the below link.
