Product: Envy 15 notebook
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
We moved to a new home and set up a new wifi. My newer HP Laptop had no problem connecting to the new wifi. I added the new wifi under settings to my older HP Envy 15 notebook, and it identifies both the 2G and 5G wifi's - but when I try and connect, it always comes back as "Can't connect to this wifi". I don't have a way of getting online with that laptop, so I can't try some of the fixes they show online (ie. downloading new drivers, etc.).
So my big question - is #1. How to get online when it won't connect. #2. What specifically do I need to do to fix this so I can access my new wifi.

Some people, like me, will change the WiFi name in the router (but keep the same password)
then a DUAL band device can connect to Either or Both.
New drivers? Worst case scenario? Bluetooth the files across from a Phone.
USB stick them across.
So now to the/A possible solution...
