Example: HP Notebook

I used to be able to connect by wifi to my printer. The wifi does not even show up on my connections on my notebook as an option now, Have I lost a driver or soemthing?

@frank962 Welcome to HP Community!

Have you run a wireless card test on your computer?


Download and install the HP Hardware diagnostics tool from this link

Once installed, shut down your computer.

Wait for a minute. 

Turn the computer On and keep tapping F2 repeatedly on startup to enter system diagnostics. 

Select the component test and run a wireless test on your computer. 

Refer to this HP Article for assistance. 

If the test fails or does not detect the wireless card, it could be faulty.


Keep us posted,
