That is the ethernet (wired) adapter.

 

If you don't see any devices needing drivers in the device manager, (the wifi adapter would be labeled as a Network Controller, and would show up under an Other Devices category), then you have a hardware issue.

 

First remove and firmly reseat the wifi adapter.  Leave the antenna wires attached if you can to make the reinstallation faster.

 

If that doesn't work, you will have to replace the wifi card.  You can use the one I suggested in that other discussion, or you can purchase a USB wifi adapter.

 

You can use the service manual I linked in the other discussion for the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.

None of those devices in your screenshot are the wifi adapter.

 

You need these drivers for the devices in your screenshot...

 

PCI device:

 

This package contains the driver that enables the Realtek Card Reader in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. The card reader enables users to read from or write to supported removable storage cards, which are typically used in digital cameras, digital music players, and cellular phones.

PCI Simple Comms Controller:

 

This package provides the Intel Management Engine Interface (MEI) Driver for the supported notebook models and operating systems. The Intel Management Engine Interface enables communication between the host operating system and the Intel Management Engine firmware.

 

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp61001-61500/sp61023.exe

 

Unknown Device:

 

This package provides the HP 3D DriveGuard software for supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. HP 3D DriveGuard protects the hard drive by "parking the heads" if the notebook is accidentally dropped or is abruptly impacted by another object.

 

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp64001-64500/sp64144.exe

 

You will have to do the wifi card hardware troubleshooting steps I posted above.

I don't think your wifi card is any good.

 

If this driver doesn't get the wifi to work, I have done all I can do to help you.
