HP Laptop Not Connecting to WiFi on Windows 10 (SOLVED)

WiFi network is easy to set up and easy to connect to. Mobile devices can connect to an out-of-the-box WiFi network and in most cases a desktop usually only requires a driver. Windows 10 will install generic drivers when you first start your desktop but compatibility drivers will be installed later or you can install them manually.

WiFi chips and drivers are not the same. You will find that some laptops are able to connect to a WiFi network more easily than others. It comes down to a difference in hardware (the wireless chip used) and the configuration of the hardware.
