Wifi connection issues

Here I would like to give step by step instructions:

 

1. Perform BIOS default

Restart the computer and keep tapping on F10 key. Click on default setting and press Yes. Save changes and exit.

Once it boots into the operating system, check whether wifi is working fine or not.

 If not, follow the next method.

 

2. Update BIOS and wifi driver from the HP support website according to your HP Pavillion model.
