Thank you, this actually helped! Smiley Very Happy

 

To summarize: the Atheros AR5B195 card is a combo WiFi/Bluetooth card. HP site for some obscure or just stupid reason does not offer a proper all-in-one setup application for it. Instead, they offer you 20+ "drivers" in the "Network" section. In order to make it work, apparently, you should install 2 of them. Which two and in what order - I haven't managed to figure out, even though I've been trying for hours.

 

In order to make it work, do the following:

 

  1. Go to http://www.driverscape.com/download/qualcomm-atheros-ar5b195-wireless-network-adapter and click on the bottom link, the one that downloads the 233 MB file [Content Removed]
  2. Open Device Manager and uninstall any Wireless card (even if it works) and the Bluetooth device.
  3. Unpack the ZIP and run the Install_CD\setup.exe
  4. Wait 10 minutes while it installs.
  5. Once done, restart the laptop and everything should be working now.

Bottom-line:

This is not the first time I am experiencing a catasrophically bad HP support. That's a great pitty because I've been a satisfied HP user for a decade. The hardware and the build of HP laptops quality is superb, but the user support and drivers provisioning is just lame.

To poster don't go to DriverScape that is a malware loaded site that will not help you. Use this site instead.

I've used drivers from here and they worked fine.
