Re: HP Probook 455 G1 Wireless Driver

OK:

 

Try this...

 

Go to the device manager, click on the Ralink RT3290 wireless card with the problem.

 

Then click on the driver tab. Click on Update driver.

 

Select the browse my computer for driver software option and browse to the driver folder that was created when you ran the file.

 

That folder will be located in C:\SWSetup\sp66089.

 

Make sure the Include Subfolders box is checked and see if the driver installs that way.

Hi:

 

What model wireless network card does your model use?

 

Can you see the name of it listed in your Linux OS?

Re: HP Probook 455 G1 Wireless Driver

Sorry that didn't work.

 

Is the driver installed and the card just not working or is there still an unresolved Network Controller device listed in the device manager?

 

If the driver didn't install, try manually installing it.

 

If it did install and you can't connect, unfortunately, I won't be able to help you with that.
