WIFI CONNECTIVITY AND ADAPTER ISSUES

HP Recommended
HP PAVILION DV6 3166TX ENTERTAINMENT NOTEBOOK PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HELLO

MY HP LAPTOP WAS MANUFACTERED IN 2011 AND WAS ORIGINALLY RUNNING IN WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM AND I RECENTLY UPGRADED TO WINDOWS 10 PRO . IT WAS WORKING FINE UNTIL A COUPLE OF DAYS OF AGO. NOW I AM NOT ABLE TO CONNECT TO WIFI. THE WIFI ADAPTER IS MISSING IN THE DEVICE MANAGER AS WELL AS IN THE NETWORK AND SHARING CENTRE. I AM NOT ABLE TO FIND A DEVICE DRIVER FOR WINDOWS 10 IN THE HP WEBSITE AS MY LAPTOP SUPPORTED WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM AND ONLY DRIVERS FOR THAT OS IS FOUND. CURRENTLY I AM USING A USB NETWORK ADAPTER TO CONNECT TO THE INTERNET. 

PLEASE HELP.

REGARDS

Abhijit

Hi

It may have failed and require replacement.

Hidden Devices.png It may be hidden in the listing.

 

Copy, Paste and Save in Notepad, as LBB.bat (not a .TXT) and double click to run.
Preferably run as an Administrator.
OR
Copy and use the individual command lines as needed.

Post anything non-personal, but relevant please.

 

@Echo OFF
getmac
netsh lan show interfaces
netsh wlan show interfaces
netsh wlan show drivers

PAUSE
systeminfo
PowerShell -Command "Get-NetAdapter"
PowerShell -Command "Get-NetAdapter -Name * | Format-Table -View Driver"
PowerShell -Command "GIP -Detailed"
PowerShell -Command "Test-NetConnection"
PAUSE

 

You could try some / all of the above commands to try and locate it.
