  3. In the Systems Icons area, ensure that the Network checkbox is selected.
  4. Click Apply, then Ok.

Hello @KCK60


Welcome to the HP Forums, and thanks for posting! Smiley Happy 


I'd be happy to assist with the wireless issues you're having with your presario computer!


Can you please follow the steps here - - and let me know your product number? 


Are you able to connect to the internet temporarily using an Ethernet cable? What version of Windows is installed on the computer?


I look forward to hearing back and working toward a resolution.
