HP Pavilion G6 2342dx Networking :: WiFi Not Working After Recommended Driver Update
Oct 23, 2014
I have the Pavilion G6 2342dx running Windows 8. Yesterday, I used HP's support assistant to perform a few recommended driver updates. Among the things updated was the Qualcomm Atheros Wifi device driver and the HP wireless button driver. Wifi device installed was 10...222, from 10....212.
After the update, my laptop is unable to detect any wifi networks. It just shows "No networks found." I also noticed that the wifi button light (on F12) is always white whether or not I activate flight mode or not. I get an on-screen message alright about airplane mode status changing. However, it does not appear to be actually turning on/off the wifi because from the sidebar, it looks like wifi is on but with the "No networks found" message persisting. Also, the wifi icon on the status bar remains grayed out with an red x on it.
I have tried disabling and enabling the adaptor with no success. I have tried downloading and reinstalling the driver (10...212) with no luck. I even tried disabling, uninstalling and reinstalling the device from device manager. System restore fails everytime I try it. Interestingly, the latest driver on HP support website is the 212, no mention of the 222 driver.
I have recently reformatted my HP 15-g029ca Notebook PC and installed Windows 7 64-Bit. However, it seems that I am missing some of the drivers as several functions of the laptop are not working (Wifi, USB etc.).
I have checked the device manager and all the items under the "Other Devices" have little "!" marks next to them (when i right-click and select properties, under "Device status" it says: "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)...".
"Network Controller-!" "Ethernet Controller-!" "PCI Device-!" "SB Bus Controller-!" "Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller-!"
My WiFi Network adapter is an "Intel WiFi Link 1000 BGN". Occasionally I lose my internet connection for approx 30 - 60 seconds and then it comes back. The modem appears to be OK as the problem does not affect other computers on the same home network. When I try to update the driver from the device manager, it says the current driver is up to date. Is there another driver I should try?
My Bluetooth is not working since I update to Windows 8.1. I tried everything. Not working. Driver error. I test through a driver scanner. It days I needed Ralink Bluetooth PCIe Adapter version 18.104.22.168 .. Where can I get it?
My pavilion g6 laptop's wifi adapter hasn't been working correcty recently. my internet router and networks are running fine as they should be, but every time i reboot my laptop, it keeps saying that there is no connection and no other wifi netowrks, when there clearly is other networks because of my surrounding neighbours.
I have tried a system restore to resolve the problem, but it has no affect and my norton is affecting the system restore of disabling the antivirus.
Here is a link to my laptops specs if needed: [URL] ....
I'm using HP Pavilion Dv4 3106tx. I do'nt know what happened but out of no where my wifi adapter somehow stopped working. whenever I enable my wifi button, the bluetooth only works and the wifi icon that usually shows on the lower right of the Taskbar doesn't show. I also checked the Device manager>Network Adapters, the wifi adapter is not there. I also tried "Scan for hardware changes" but still there is no Wifi adapter showing up.
Right now I'm just connecting through ethernet for internet connection because my wifi is not working.
I just bought "HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC p000su-j2t31ea", installed windows 8.1, downloaded drivers and it seems like it works perfectly but wifi.
When I tried to install this Broadcom WLAN driver [URL]... its loading like on the half way on its instalation and drops then a message appears and asks me if the program worked well.
Ive tried to install that driver under Safe Mode and it loaded the installation, but when it was installing some error came out saying that the installation cant continue, because update.cpp 1205 is not found or something.I also tried to find the driver from broadcom's site, but couldnt find it. And now i can use e-net only via cable.
so i tried installing from the device manager, from the hp site, from the realtek site, from the ralink site, and nothing. i dont even know what adapter i have because all it says is "network controller". When i try to install it from the device manager it doesnt find anything. when i try to install the downloaded drivers it does its thing then says it didnt install properly, and it will keep saying that.
HP 630 notebook PC, Product number A6E92EA#ABV... WIFI button on f12 indicating itsoff and not working when i press on it. network controller and PCI on device manager all are no drive (code 28) and also Bluetooth.
recently purchased the HP 15 Notebook PC having Windows 8.1 OS. When I setup the laptop initially and was trying to configure the machine it detected my home WiFi...however i skipped the step as I didnt remember the password.
I configured it on Ethernet and it worked fine.
when I tried to setup the WiFi later, it doesnt show any WIFI networks. The Wifi light on my keypad is on indicating its active but no wfi network visible. I tied restarting the laptop and my Wifi router but it didn't work.
The Wifi on my a new ProBook won't turn on. Device Manager says that the device driver for Wifi won't load and may be missing or corrupted. It says the wireless device is an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC3160 with Bluetooth combo device. The HP driver support page doesn't have a driver for this wireless device.
Specs: ProBook G1 450Windows 7 Professional 64-bitWireless device: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC3160 with Bluetooth combo device
This is a new ProBook G1 450 which I am still doing basic setup on; I haven't even added my programs to it. I am setting up the preinstalled OS with the HP preinstalled programs. It does successfully connect to the internet via an ethernet cable, and I downloaded many Win 7 and HP updates that way. But it will not connect via a wireless network. It does not recognize that there are any Wifi signals in the area. My old Thinkpad and my tablet recognize a number of strong Wifs in the area, and connect easily to the one which I am authorized to use. The ProBook says there is no wireless in the area.
The ProBook's Wifi is apparently disabled. The wireless light is on (white), and when I click the appropriate icon, there is a message saying that Bluetooth is enabled, but Wifi is disabled. The light is supposed to turn on if either of Wifi or Bluetooth or both are turned on, so it is not a malfunction if it turns on when only one is enabled. But I have not tried Bluetooth yet.
Many other ProBook G1 450's apparently have a Ralink wireless device or certain other devices. Not mine. My ProBook apparently has an Intel Dual Bank Wireless-AC3160 with Bluetooth combo device. That's what Device Manager says. And this device might be excellent or perhaps even a nice improvement. However, unfortunately, Device Manager also says "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)."
The HP support page for driver downloads for my ProBook does not have any driver for such an Intel wireless device. I didn't try the wireless until having installed many Win and HP updates. At the same time that I have noticed the wifi problem, I found that one HP update won't install: that was for Hotkey Support 5. Since then, I am having a little trouble with a couple of other updates. I mention this in case it is of some interest, but I don't see any connection between these updates and Wifi.
I replaced the hard drive on my HP Pavilion DV6-6c35dx and did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. The network drivers were the first I tried to install, but I was unable to activate the WIFI. I was able to successfully install the ethernet driver (Realtek Local Area Network (LAN) Driver), so I can get online.
None of the other network drivers listed for my laptop seem to have done anything: Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows 7; Ralink 802.11 b/g/n WiFi Adapter; Atheros Bluetooth Driver. I cannot find any wireless devices in device manager, but the laptop definitely has the hardware because it worked flawlessly on my old hard drive.
The WIFI indicator light on the keyboard is orange, and nothing happens when I press it. It just occurred to me while typing this post that I should check in the BIOS, and I will check that right after I finish; There was nothing useful in the BIOS.
I recently bought HP compaq 15-s006TU and the wifi doesn't work in windows. The wifi button on the keyboard is always orange. I have tried downloading and installing the wifi and bluetooth drivers from the following links [URL] They install but wifi still doesn't work. I have windows 7 Professional 64bit I also tried updating drivers from device manager, but it says that the drivers are up to date.
Laptop not detected by wireless devices. Unable to connect wifi direct. Bluetooth is working.Unable to install qualcom atheros lan or realtek driver. For bluethooth Qualcomm Atheros Bluetooth 4.0+HS Driver for Microsoft Windows installed successfully. But wireless lan not installed successfully.
I bought a new laptop HP Pavilion g7.I got Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter but my problem is that I can only connect to 802.11 n network and I can not use 802.11 g wifi.When I trying to connect 802.11 g wifi it says limited can not download any webpage but I should use it with this Ralink 802.11 bgn adapter yes? I have already updated the Wifi adapter but didn't work I turned off every firewall and antivirus software and I have already writing by manually IP address ,subnet mask etc...I got window 8 software. what has windows 7 I can connect without any trouble to 802.11 g wifi! I'd like to use 802.11 g because the signal strength is stronger than 802.11 n .I can receive the signal from 802.11 g wifi network somehow.
