Solved!

Slow Wifi Connection After Upgrading to Windows 10

HP Recommended
HP Envy dv6-7300 Quad Edition
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just upgraded my laptop to Windows 10 a few days ago and my download speed is very slow (~1 Mbps). I tried downloading with an Ethernet cable and it was 30 times faster. I think I have the same problem as described in this thread. It seems like my Wifi Drivers need to be updated. I tried to access the ftp link but it has expired. Could someone give me the latest drivers for my network card.

 

These are the network cards shown in Device Manager.

Thanks in advance.

Hi:

 

The is the only W10 driver that was released to HP for that model wifi adapter.

 

5.0.57.0

 

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp71501-72000/sp71571.exe

 

I am pretty sure that W10 has already installed this driver automatically.

 

I am very surprised that model wifi adapter is working at all on W10.

 

Normally they completely disappear from the device manager with no fix other than to replace the wifi card with a different model.

 

I can't seem to get the link to work using Microsoft Edge, but it works fine using Internet explorer.

 

If you continue to have issues with that wifi adapter, upgrade to this one since your notebook has an Intel core processor...

 

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0    HP Part # 710661-001

 

You can find this model card on eBay.

 

Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

 

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

Hi Paul, I lost my other login so I had to create another account. Just want to let you know that your solution works. You solved my snail-speed Wifi problem. Thank you so much.
