That card doesn't work with the newer builds of W10.
Here is the W10 driver for it, but I doubt it will solve the problem.
What I recommend you do is to take a chance on this dual band wifi card with bluetooth...
Broadcom BCM943228HMB 802.11abgn 2×2 Wi-Fi Adapter, Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter HP part # 730668-001.
You should be able to find this card on eBay. Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.
