    Re: Wifi not working HP OMEN laptop

    is there any setting in bios that may turn wireless on or off?

    your wireless is still hard lock by something in the machine.
    You can try issuing the following command and see if it turns it on, but I doubt it.
    Code:
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    Wireless script

    What about
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v hp_wmi wireless=1
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    rfkill list
    iwconfig
