So I finally got a new machine for school. It came with Windows 8. Problem is with the wifi. I did a system recovery to return the system to it's factory condition. System worked flawlessly, and the wifi worked as it should. After the first batch of updates the wifi would no longer connect. Windows said the settings it had for the network no longer match. So I had to reset the router to get it to work again. Question is why is this happening?

Did you update it to 8.1? If so, did you grab the new drivers from HP? If that is the Qualcomm Atheros card, there are specific drivers for 8.1
