HP Envy M6 1225dx with Windows 8 fresh install . LAN and Wifi drivers not installed/working

[ Edited ]

Re-installed Windows 8 Pro from DVD (from my MSDN subscription) and noticed that the driver for the LAN NIC had installed but was not working and the Wifi driver didn't get installed.  I downloaded all of the drivers from:

 

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4132&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=&sw_lang=&product=535975... 

 

and installed

 

"Qualcomm Atheros AR9000 Series Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows" and then the 
"Intel Wireless Drivers for Microsoft Windows 8".

 

Neither installation apparently was the correct driver for the wireless card as the list of unknown devices in the device manager remained the same.  

 

I know the WIfi works as I had it setup and connected before I re-installed Windows 8.  I've also tried to use the LAN connection and network connection was not recognized when I plug in the cable. 

 

If there a specific order that the drivers need to be installed in?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks, 

Andy
