Hi:

 

If you notebook is only missing the wifi driver, you can install it from the link below.

 

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp70501-71000/sp70859.exe

 

If your notebook is missing the entire wifi adapter from the device manager, then there is a hardware problem of some sort.

 

The first thing to do in that case would be to remove and firmly reseat the Atheros wifi card and see if that gets it to show up again.

 

Leave the antenna cables connected if you can, to make it easier to reinstall it.

 

Here is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.
