    I'm running windows 8.1 on a HP computer.

    When trying to connect to any WIFI network, my computer has a hard time finding the network i'm looking for, but eventually after a few minutes it does find the network. Than I enter the password and press connect and it doen't connect most of the times: "cannot connect to the network". But sometimes it does work for some reason. It's pretty random! Usually it takes me between 5 - 15 minutes to connect to the internet. The frustrating thing is that I know it will work in the end but I don't know when it will work. With my mobile phone I can connect to all the networks I want instantaneously.

    I need some help. I have no idea why it takes my computer so long to find the network and to connect with them.

    Thank you so much

    First, make sure you have the latest wireless driver from HP's web site (assuming that you are using an integrated adapter).

    Try deleting the WIFI network profile in your WIFI connection manager.
    Then reconnect again and enter WIFI key.
