i accidentally deleted a driver and now my wireless will not work at all.

in a state of frustration i accidentally deleted a driver. I think it was the astero driver and i downloaded it again via the hp website. it is installed, but my internet isn't (i'm using a friends verizon card). i don't know if my deletion of that driver/software did something severe and i have no idea how to get my wireless back working.

 

HP Pavilion dv6-3019wm entertainment notebook

windows 7 64-bit

That's also happened to me, My Compaq 6910p was missing the WLAN driver, I can't seem to find the right download.
