HP only has the drivers that was made at the time the laptop came from the factory with some update only but for Windows 10 AFAIK-that would require you look at intel driver site to see if they have  Win10 listed for your wifi.

-------- Looking for HP driver support When Windows 10 O/S isn't Supported ------
Windows 10 drivers may be available through Windows Update

Click 'Learn More' below for steps on using Windows Update to determine what drivers might be available for your product. Please be aware that HP does not guarantee Windows 10 drivers will be available from Windows Update.

BTW, Millions of folks have gone back from Win10 to their prior O/S -- something you don't hear about from MS. by WAWood but ALL to TRUE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Those that want HD Gaming should plan to invest in a Gaming Laptop to handle those requirements. Eamples GTA V or Crysis 3.

The solution i found is installing HP Wireless Assistant, which also enables the Bluetooth function of the HP ProBook 4510s.

In Windows10 under Device Manager it states the driver for the 5100 AGN is working properly. Which is true!

 

However HP made a additional feature - HP Wireless Assistant- which needs to be installed before being able to turn on/off WiFi (front slider button) and bluetooth (via application):

The application for the ProBook 4510s can be found here:

Set your language and software version to desired values.

 

direct download of HP Wireless Assistant (Windows 7 Professional 64-bit):

After spending hours for looking a solution it seems to work if you change the settings (Device manager, extended settings) to:   802.11n Channel Width for band 2.4  -   Auto

This worked for my HP Compag 6730 -  evt. you have to try other settings

Regards
