    Need help connecting HP laptop to wifi after fresh install of 20.04 lts

    Need help connecting HP laptop to wifi after fresh install of 20.04 lts

    There is no "system menu" or should I say no wifi option in menu at top right

    There doesn't appear to be a button on the function keys to turn on wifi

    I installed "additional drivers" and rebooted - no luck

    fyi It worked before the fresh install (after I installed an SSD). Computer is the HP Pavilion 17-g161us. HP did a wifi upgrade/fix years ago. I changed little battery and computer reverted back to factory bios on first boot up.
