Cannot turn on wireless capability



Product info: Hp Probook 4530s.

OS: windows 7 professional x64.

Wireless: Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter


I cannot turn the wireless(by pressing wireless top-right button, or by pressing windows + X). I updated the windows and the bios. I also used all the drivers from the hp site. No errors are displayed in the Device manager. Please give me a piece of advice. Thank you.

Re: Cannot turn on wireless capability

i have the same issue:


Product info: Hp Probook 4330s.

OS: windows 7 professional x64 & Fedora.

Wireless: Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter 


The problem is that the wifi atheros is correctly configured, but is not possible to activate!

very strange issue, from ipconfig/all i can see that the media is disconnected...
