Hi:

 

The only suggestion I can offer would be to update the Wifi driver...

 

6.30.223.227

You're very welcome.

 

What model Broadcom wifi card does your notebook have?

 

If it is only a single band card (2.4 GHz only), such as the BCM4313, I recommend you replace it with the newer dual band model that even works on W10.

 

Broadcom BCM943228HMB 802.11abgn 2×2 Wi-Fi Adapter, Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter   HP part # 730668-001.

 

You can find this card on eBay or maybe Ali Express.

 

Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.
