Ok, it says the wifi is blocked - probably you need to turn on the wifi switch (which may be a "touch" button above the keyboard, or a physical switch at the front of the laptop). If that doesn't work, try using HP Wireless Assistant on Windows to enable wifi.

Did you perhaps install the Broadcom STA driver? That one often doesn't work on 4311/4312, and, it doesn't support using aircrack. Please run this to uninstall the driver, in case you installed it:
Code: Select all
apt remove bcmwl-kernel-source
sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf

You were on the b43 driver and with that one it should work.
