    You need to download the Wifi driver for your laptop. Not all units are automatically getting the proper drivers installed when you do the upgrade. See if this will pull the driver from the Windows.old folder if you still have it. Recovering drivers from windows.old Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums

    See if the Support assistant for HP will help. HP Support Assistant | HP® Official Site See this for further info. HP Products - Common Solutions for Windows 10 | HP® Customer Support
