Pavilion Elite 400f Wi-Fi

HP Recommended
Pavilion Elite 400f
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP Pavilion Elite 400f (Serial BT470AA)

and updated the operating system from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I recently replaced the hard drive with another one (it works fine). However, I noticed that I no longer have a WIFI connection (I did prior to replacing the hard drive, and the WIFI in my house works fine with my other devices). My wired connection works.

 

I looked at the Device Manager and noticed the network controller no longer has a driver associated with it, and I cannot find one online. Can you assist in getting the right controller driver for this HP.

Hi:

 

The parts list for your PC indicates that it comes with a Ralink RT3090 wifi adapter.

I don't believe that card will work with W10, but here is the driver for it...it only worked with the first couple of W10 builds.

Hi:

 

I didn't think it would.

 

I would recommend you purchase an external USB wifi adapter which would be the easiest way to resolve the problem.
