Hope this is the right section lol.... recently reinstalled windows 7 fresh on my laptop when I say everything up I noticed there was no WiFi connections as I found out by looking online there is a yellow sign beside the driver for internet and is not working correctly...I tried looking on manufacture website to find my driver was not succesfull any chance anyone would be able to give me a link for a controller/driver for my elitebook 8560w laptop? A link would be extremely appreciated

Hi:

 

Please post the hardware ID for the device you see listed in the device manager labeled as a Network Controller.

 

Use this guide for how to find the hardware ID for a device...

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the wifi driver you need for the Intel 6300 WiFi adapter...

 

This package contains drivers required to enable functionality of the Intel Wireless LAN adapter on supported notebooks with supported operating systems.

 

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp58501-59000/sp58782.exe

 

If you want the latest driver, you can use the one directly from Intel...7th one down on the left side of the page (if I'm counting right).
