After reading other post concerning this problem ik came accross this earkier posted text.

 

Hello,

After trying the following with my wifi network, my HP Pavilion has been unable to even detect my home wireless signal and am looking to replace the wireless adapter:

 

I've done some reading on it and feel that the wireless card, a Ralink RT3290 802.11 bgn, may need replacing. Although I've been able to ping it without issue, I am unable to see my home network, either 2.4 GHZ or 5 GHZ; I'm able to see neighbours' networks, but not my own, even if I'm sitting right beside it.

 

Although in the earlier post was spoken about the card with two antennes, my laptop has only 1 antenne connected.

 

Wich  card i need and the software driver to get is up and running ?

 

regards

You're very welcome.

 

You can use this wifi card instead.  It is only single band like the Ralink card your notebook has now, but both the wifi and Bluetooth will work with one antenna wire on W10.

Hi:

 

Yes, that card has issues with W10--especially the newer builds.

 

If your notebook has two wifi antenna cables connected to the Ralink wifi card, you can upgrade to this model which works with W10...

You can find this model wifi card on eBay.  Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.
