If you ask for help it is only polite to use some basic text formatting, also to know the right terms ;)
I am too lazy to check your hardware details, so start there by confirming your rotten fruit actually fully supports the 5GHz bands and protocols used by your router.
Same for the security settings, not everything works with 512bit AES encryption...

has it EVER worked?

There has to be something amiss with the Hp if other items can connect. Try sitting next to the router to try.

Ensure wireless is turned on on the lap top many allow you to turn it off.
