HP 630 WiFi (Atheros AR9285) not working after BIOS update

Hi everybody, I'm new in this forum.

I know similar questions were already asked here, but I tried every solution provided for those and none of them solved my problem, so I'm asking again.

After I updated my BIOS from version F1A to F1.39 revision A, my WiFi board (you can read the name in the title) suddenly stopped working properly: Bluetooth works just fine, whereas WiFi can't turn on (WiFi icon turns grey). Despite this, the WiFi led is still white.

I opened the PC to clean the processor fan (it's out of warranty) before this problem arose, but put the Wireless card back in position and it just worked fine. I downloaded the BIOS update using it, after the fan cleaning! Anyway, I checked the card as well but, as I expected, it was ok and in correct position. In the end, the problem seems to be the BIOS update. Has anyone had this probem before?

 

PS. The WiFi driver installed at the moment is the following: Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter Version 10.0.3.456

 

Thanks in advance.
