Alternative intel wifi 5100 driver for HP pavillion DV7 3090ed

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 Dear all, 


About 2 years ago i upgraded my win 7 to win 10 version and wirelss stopped working. this problem is well known. Many attempts with netsh id config, reset IP, reinstall drivers, trough a USB whatever, nothing worked.


I must conclude that the intel WIFI 5100 driver is incompatible with windows 10. I cannot anymore revert my win 10 upgrade sadly.



My question is whether i can install an older version or another driver type that is compatible on windows 10 ??? if so i would gladly have the driver link or zip file posted





PS, also my touchpad scrolling feature stopped working, i dont know if this could be related, just in case it could help figuring out where the problem is but i guess its just incompatibility.

Let me take a moment to thank you for posting on the HP Support Forums. 


I understand that you have an HP Pavilion dv7-3090ed Entertainment Notebook and after upgrading to Win10, the wifi has stopped working and also the touchpad scroll is not working. I'd like to assist you with this case.


I did some research and found that there are no updated Win10 drivers available on the HP website for the wireless card. However, a third party website ( claims to have the updated drivers. The other workaround would be is to get a USB wifi dongle and plug it to one of the USB ports of the computer and then connect to the wifi router. You should be able to order one for a song. It is cost effective as well.


Secondly, the scroll may not be working due to the lack of Win10 updated drivers. However, you may try the steps from this link:


Feel free to reach out to me for any further questions. All the best! 🙂
