Solved!

WiFi Connections: HP laptop unable to find 5Ghz wireless signal?

I fixed this problem by changing the router by switching to dual mode, b/g option.

I am having this same issue. When my internet was originally set up, I was able to discover the 5 Ghz connection. Now, for some reason, I cannot. I've tried to restore my computer, but that did not work. I have an HP Pavilion all in one PC.

WiFi Connections: HP laptop unable to find 5Ghz wireless signal?

  1. Setting up WiFi network for the first time

    The first time you connect to a specific WiFi network, you must enter all the configuration information to establish the connection. You can configure the computer to automatically connect when the computer is within range of the network. Follow the steps below to set up your WiFi connection.

    NOTE: The original factory image of the HP computer has the required drivers for the built-in wireless network device and the HP Wireless Assistant. If you have changed the operating system (OS), download and install the latest version of the wireless network device driver and the HP Wireless Assistant for your model and OS. Not all computers have a built-in wireless device. http://www.ieenews.com/creating-wifi-hotspot-using-cmd-command-prompt/

    If the computer does not have an HP factory image, you may want to search www.google.com or www.youtube.com for information on setting up a wireless network.

    1. Start the computer, and turn on the wireless device.

      To turn on the wireless device, simply move the switch to the On position. The power switch for the wireless LAN device, and the Bluetooth device (if equipped), is located on the side of the case or above the keyboard depending on the model. On some computers, the switch is actually a touch point on the panel above the keyboard or on one of the function keys.

      For most computers, there is an LED light that glows blue when the wireless device is turned on and enabled, and glows orange when off or disabled. Some newer models use a different color scheme and have an LED built into the corresponding function key.

    2. In the toolbar notification area, locate the HP Wireless Assistant icon.

      • If it is On , continue to the next step.

      • If it is Off , right-click the icon and select Open Wireless Assistant. Click Turn On to enable the device.

      • If there is no icon, click Start, type hp wireless assistant into the Search field, and then clickHP Wireless Assistant in the search results. Turn On (enable) the wireless device.

        If the HP Wireless Assistant is not listed in the search results, use another computer to download it from the Drivers and Download page for your HP product.

    3. Now that the wireless device is turned On and Enabled, locate the available wireless networks icon in the toolbar notification area. If there is no wireless icon, but the network cable is connected, unplug the network cable. The wireless network icon will display.

    4. Right-click the wireless network icon, click Open Network and Sharing Center, click Set up a new connection or network, and then select Manually connect to a wireless network.
