I just got finished reinstalling a fresh windows 7 64bit on my fiances uncles laptop. I was reinstalling the drivers and the only one thats missing is the wireless network adapter driver. I run the scan on the HP site and it doesn't come up with any drivers for the Wireless adapter. It's not showing that i have anymore drivers that need to be installed or updated. But still the wireless adapter is not working. I can't seem to find the driver anywhere. Any help would be appreciated. This is an HP Pavilion dv6 laptop.

Please go to the device manager, click on the device labeled as a Network Controller, and post the hardware ID for it.
If you do not know where to find the hardware ID, please use the guide at the link below for assistance.

it doesn't have any id. It says Manufactur unknown. but the laptop is an HP Pavilion dv6-6c11nr ... This laptop was a complete mess and barely worked so i decided to clean it off like new for him while he's up for vacation. So he doesn't have any driver disc with him obviously. And their are no Id's in the Device Manager. I click Network Controller and it only says Unknown. It's under "Other Devices" with a yellow marking beside it. I'm using my own adapter at the moment to try getting his drivers installed. I'v looked everywhere for driver. This is the only thing i have been able to find online about the name.

You are probably not following the instructions to find the hardware ID to the letter.
Below is the link to the driver you need for the wireless card in that model.
I was able to find it by going to the HP parts surfer website and input the product number from that model.
