I am not sure what the problem is...new HP dv7-7300 windows 8 and an i7 and the wifi connects most of the time if I let it set for about 10 seconds after shutdown, then restart. The troubleshooting part of the wifi does not come up with anything.
If I select restart and it reboots right away I see a little star or something on my signal icon which I am thinking is limited connectivity, not sure. I have to connect manually even though it is set to auto. If it sits for 5-10 minutes it will eventually connect. Router seems fine, another machine always works fine using it.
I installed an SSD right away and the machine works flawlessly aside from this issue. I didn't notice this problem with the original HD but only used it for a few hours and didn't do any quick restarts.
Any ideas will be appreciated.
