Drivers for My PC's WiFi card have been deleted from my PC, and cannot be reinstalled

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion H8-1114
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a HP Pavillion h8-1114.  I went on the PC after it being in sleep mode and the PC would not connect to WIFI.  I did some digging around and had discovered that the drivers for my wifi module are missing and have been deleted from the PC itself.  I knew  I had to be able to reinstall these drivers, so I went to the HP Drivers Downloading Website.  I noticed that there were no drivers for windows 10 which I thought was odd, but I had decided to download both the Windows 7 and windows 8 drivers.  To my suprise, the drivers would not install as I am running windows 10 because my PC auto updated from windows 7 to windows 10 without permission.  

 

Does anyone have any recomendations on how to fix my WIFI?

Hi:

 

Unfortunately, there is no W10 driver for the model wifi adapter your PC has.

If there are two antenna cables connected to the wifi card in there now, I recommend you replace the Broadcom card with this one...

 

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0    HP Part # 710661-001

 

The card is available on eBay or Amazon, and don't cost very much at all.

 

Do your search by the HP part number, not by the model number of the wireless card.

 

Otherwise, you can also purchase an external USB dual band wifi adapter.

 

There is a W8.1 driver for the Broadcom wifi card, but I don't know if it will work either.
