WiFi adapter connectivity problems

HP ProBook 4540s
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Dear Expert,

 

I downloaded HP connection manager and insttalled in my notebook. After installing HP connection, it showed network controller under other devices. Then I downloaded driver "sp57165" for Atheros AR9485 802.11 b/g/n 1x1 WiFi although I tried for Atheros 9485GN 802.11 b/g/n 1x1 WiFi as told by Paul_Tikkanen but failed to obtain from website.

At the same time I downloaded another software "INF_allOS_9.4.0.1027" for Intel 7 chipset solution.

 

Now I see WiFi Lan  message disabledby Mobility Center.

 

How to seolve the WiFi connection problems?

 

I had enabled WiFi Lan enabled in BIOS which was shown earlier by HP connection manager.

 

waiting for your reply

 

thanks and regards

Dear Expert,

 

thanks for your response.

 

I could not figure out the meaning of

 

"Please click on windows key  and Type mobility

Enable wireless in Windows mobility Center"

 

Could you explain me the details.

 

thanks

Hello 

 

I hope this helps :

 

To get to the Windows Mobility Center, use one of these two methods:

 

  • Click Start, choose Control Panel, and click the icon for the Windows Mobility Center.

  • Hold down the Windows key and press the X key.

 

Microsoft customizes the options to match your particular laptop’s features, so don’t worry if your Mobility Center screen looks slightly different from this example:

The Mobility Center lets you make quick adjustments to your laptop’s main settings, as described in the following list.

 

  • Volume: Adjust your laptop’s default audio setting using the slider. (Or select the Mute to save batteries.)

  • Battery Status: Change the settings depending on whether you’re plugged in or not. (Don’t want to have to keep

  • changing? Leave the setting at Balanced).

  • Wireless Network: If your laptop offers it, here’s an easy-to-find On/Off switch for your laptop’s wireless network adapter.

  • Brightness: If your laptop offers it, use the sliding control to dim your laptop in low-light situations (or simply to save battery power) or increase the brightness when working outdoors.

  • External Display: Head here to set up your laptop to work with a larger monitor or projector for giving presentations.

  • Sync Center: Use the settings here to keep your Windows 7 laptop or Windows 7 PC in synchronization with a network server.

  • Screen Rotation: This feature lets you rotate the screen for easier viewing on an odd-sized display. (This is usually only found on some tablet PCs and netbooks.)

  • Presentation Settings: This option lets you control what appears on the projector when you hook up your laptop.

Although some buttons take you to yet more areas full of settings, the Mobility Center works well as a launching pad. It’s your first stop to customize your laptop to match its latest surroundings.
