Can't connect to wifi

HP notebook 2000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My laptop is unable to cannot to any wifi netwroks. I am getting error message as 'Can't connect to this network'. I have searched through all the forum, did the troubleshooting through HP support assistant. I have tried restarting the modem as well but nothing works. Please advice.

Can't connect to wifi

Hi

 

Well the obvious thing to do is to change networks, channels or frequencies.  You don't actually mention what network the machine doesn't like.  But if we assume all networks are unavailable, and work from there.

 

Is there a Wi-Fi card fitted?  Type / Model / Manufacturer details listed here would be welcome.

 

If YES then it should show in Device Manager.  Does it?  Without a Yellow warning triangle?

 

Drivers installed / loaded? Evidence would be nice.

 

A screenshot of the setup / connection screens you go thru may help to establish the hardware is there and functioning.

 

 

Help us to help you.

 

Moving on to things you can try
