My wifi was working yesterday all day. In the evening, I logged on and all of a sudden it was asking me to connect an ethernet cable to connect to the network. I checked setting and my network adapters and my wifi adapter is no where to be found.

Hello there, please try the following troubleshooting steps- 

1. Please perform a hard reset on your HP notebook. Disconnect the power cord and remove the battery (if removable). Now press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Afterwards reconnect the battery and the power supply. And Now try to power it back on.

If issue persists- 

Go to Device Manager and check under Network Adapters whether the wifi driver has
any warning or exclamation or whether any wifi driver is present at all. Alternately, go to
HP.COM Software and Driver downloads page and download the right WIFI driver corresponding to the S/N and P/N of your HP Notebook.

Run the driver file and restart the notebook . Problem should resolve there. For any help I am always available on HP Forum on fb and gmail by this name. Thanks.
