Hi:

 

This would be the latest W7 wifi driver for the Broadcom wifi card your notebook has...

 

6.223.215.21   Sep 17, 2015

 

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72501-73000/sp72879.exe

 

Why don't you just install a legal version of W10 that your notebook came with by making bootable installation media using the media creation tool at the link below...

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

The W10 product key is in the BIOS, so you don't even need it or need to know what it is to install W10.

Hi:

 

The last Broadcom wifi drivers released for W7 were from 2015, so you have the latest one available.

 

If you let me know the product number of your notebook, I will post the link to the Broadcom driver listed on the support page.

You're very welcome.

 

You don't need to buy a W10 product key.

 

The key is in your notebook's BIOS, so if you ever want to install W10, you can do it for free.

 

Run the free utility that I zipped up and attached below, and it will show you the W10 product key and the version of W10 the key is good for.
