So my friend has this basic Hp computer from like Walmart or somewhere lol
Not sure but anyway it had wifi on it then factory reset it and now no wifi it's a desktop so I'm wondering why it's not there just says Ethernet cable to plug in so then went out and bought a wifi adapter that you plug into your USB port it was showing up in device manager but with yellow signs so I go to update says it's up to date but doesn't work either it's a netgear one so I thought it would work for him it didn't and note he's using his Neighbors Wi-Fi Witch they allow so he needs help anything please ?
