Hi,

I believe that you have got an Envy Dv7-7000 series. There are many posts on this forum about the Intel 2230 and connectivity problems on Windows 7 or 8. I suggest to replace it. If the laptop is Intel based get the latest Intel 7260-AC. It should work on Envy Dv6/7-7000 or Envy TouchSmart 15/17 Intel based laptops.
