I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a laptop INSPIRON E1705 with a WLAN card (p/n DW 1390) installed. I would like to replace it with a WiFi/Bluetooth combo card so I can have Bluetooth capability. What is the recommended card to buy that is compatible with Windows 10? 

A:Replace WiFi PCIe card with WiFi/Bluetooth combo card.

Given that there will be no antenna inside the system for bluetooth, you're better off with one of these:

I have a Pavilion g7-1260us model QE118UA notebook.  The wireless card stopped working a while ago so, I'm using a USB wifi dongle.  Not ideal but, it works.  I recently read about a wifi/bluetooth combo card that may or may not work with my model.  Due to the hundreds of models, I cannot find specific info on MY model on whether or not there is such a card. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I upgraded my friends HP laptop to Windows 10. The issue now is I can't enable Wifi. The card is recognized correctly in Device manager and no issues is found with it. It looks like it is fine. However in the Network Settings WLAN is set to "Off" and when I try to turn it on it always jumps right back to off. eg. I can't enable it.

HP is now help as they clearly state any laptop bought prior to specific date in 2013 will not get any driver updates from their side for windows 10. (Guys, never buy HP again please...). And updating through device manager only tells me it's the newest driver available.

The Wifi card i Broadcom 4313GN card. I searched for win 10 drivers but did not find anything.They only offer linux drivers on their homepage...

So can anyone either provide a solution to the issue or link to a win 1' driver for this wifi card?

A:Dreaded Win10 WiFi Issue: Can't enable WiFi after Upgrade

I had a similar issue were I was stuck in Aeroplane mode on a cleanly installed W10. Turned out I had to uninstall it from the HID's in Device manager. It's worth checking that he's not stuck in it too. Search for drivers in Windows 7, from the HP website and you'll most likely resolve the issue.

hello there, i have recently upgraded my service to 200mbs with a dual band smart router, modem and router capable of 1000mbs, after upgrade i come to find my wifi card only recieves 2.4ghz channel, its pitiful that my cell phone can get 140mbs on 5ghz and my new laptop can only get 100mbs via ethernet and less than 20mbs wireless, i took it to the local computer store and he did not want to touch the machine because this model is extremely hard to get into and i have read that if it only has One antenna i would have to disassemble the display aswell , so i am basically asking several questions, (1) can i upgrade to a card that is 2 x 2 A/b/g/n/AC 867mbs  like the intel 7260 or 8260 (2) does this machine have the required 2 antennas so i do not have to take apart the display?. i find it ludacris that this machine came out in 2016 and is not capable of reaching passed 100mbs, i would have never purchsed it, i intend to keep upgrading speed as long as my ISP keeps giving me good deals on service, i pay $60 for 200mbs.....card is realtek RTL8723benf Single band 2.4ghz 100mbs......thank you in advance

I just recently bought an Intel 3160HMW because I've upgraded another PC of mine with it with good success.  I installed it in my 8560w and when I boot, I get an error saying that there is an "Unsupported WLAN Module" and it will be disabled. I was able to install it with it booted and running and it installed and it worked perfectly but when I rebooted, it gave me the error and disabled it without an option in Windows to enable it. I didn't know until after my issues about the HP whitelisting for hardware and I'm guessing that this module is not on that whitelist. I really want to upgrade to a card with Bluetooth and Dual Band Wifi to keep it up with the latest networking.  I saw in the manual that there are like 3 or 4 "approved" wifi modules and none of them have built in bluetooth or dual band. Are there any more modules that are approved that are not listed in the manual on the HP website? Also, I don't want to mess with USB dongles.  I already have a 4.0 Bluetooth dongle and want to get rid of it for a built in module.

A:Wifi Card Upgrade

Hi: Unfortunately, there aren't. Your notebook has the BIOS whitelist, so you have to use one of the wlan cards listed in the manual.  And the wlan card must have the HP part number on it or it will not work.  I usually go on eBay and query by the part number, and only buy an item that clearly shows the white "Replace with HP Spare' sticker with the P/N on the label. Your only option as I see it, would be to get the best intel card listed...the 6300 (if your notebook has 3 antennas), and the optional bluetooth module. Otherwise get the 6205. The 6300 and 6205 are dual band wlan cards without bluetooth. http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/wireless-products/centrino-ultimate-n-6300.html http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/wireless-products/centrino-advanced-n-6205.html The problem is that the required bluetooth cable is not sold separately and is part of the cable kit. See chapter 3 of the service manual for the BT module part number and the cable kit part number. http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c03424153-1.pdf Chapter 4 has the R&R procedures for the BT module and cable. You might be lucky, and the BT cable is already included in your notebook.

I have an Inspiron N7110, which came with an Intel centrino N 1030 wireless network card. Intel just updated the drivers for the 1030 on all OS's except windows 10. My internet connection goes on and off constantly. I found a pretty short list on intel.com of windows 10 supported drivers:
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-N 7260
Intel® Wireless-N 7260
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-N 7265
Intel® Wireless-N 7265
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 (64-bit only)
Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265
Intel® Wireless Gigabit 11000
I'm hoping someone knows if any of the above wifi cards would be fit for a replacement of my 1030.

A:Must Upgrade Wifi Card

If your N7110 uses a Mini-PCIe slot, the best card you can get is the Intel 7260AC, but make sure you get the HMW version, not the NGFF version. If your system uses an M.2/NGFF slot, I would recommend the Intel 8265.

I am trying to upgrade my wifi card in my laptop and i have almost decided which card to buy, the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 Plus Bluetooth. however due to the whitelist issues on some of the hp laptop bios's i am unsure if it will be compatible. does anyone know if this card is whitelisted or not for the hp g56 130-sa?

A:hp g56 130-sa wifi card upgrade

Hi: Unfortunately, your notebook's BIOS has the whitelist which means you can only install one of the supported wireless network cards listed in the service manual for your notebook. It also must have the HP part number on it or it will not work. The Intel 7260 AC card will definitely not work in your notebook.

A:Wifi card upgrade

Good news: no whitelist Possible bad news: on HP laptops shipped with "budget" wireless cards, HP often only installed a single wireless antenna which effectively hampers meaningful upgrade.  So, before proceeding we need to have you open her up and count the wireless antennae. Easy to do on your model.  See p. 44 here: Manual Once you let us know (2 or 1)if it's 2 we can find you a 7260ac card to install. About $25 on amazon.com

Hello,

I have recently bought a new pci wifi lan card (Ralink rt61 turbo) and have plugged in and installed drivers. Initially the drivers the company I bought it from told me to install didn't work, but after some googling found the correct drivers and downloaded from Ralinks website. However these didn't work either.

When using the Ralink wireless utility it says that the card is disconnected, however in device manage it is both connect and the correct drivers installed and everything is perfectly fine.

I ignored the wireless utility and hoped that windows 7 would still be able to use the wireless card as past experiences have shown to be true. This case however I get nothing. Windows 7 says that the wireless card is experiencing problems, it doesn't show any of the routers that should be shown.

I have been looking around a lot and there have been several drivers that should have worked and they haven't.

I would have thought that the antenna is broken or the card doesn't work however when I use it with ubuntu instead of windows 7 it works perfectly fine without any hassle, so the card is definitely working.

Any advice that anyone can give on how to resolve this would be very welcome.

Thanks

Hey guys,

So, what i'm trying to do is create a wifi hotspot using my computer. In other words, turning my computer into a router. I'm wanting to do this so i can use my ipod at home instead of only when i'm around other wifi hotspots.

My computer is running off of a wired router, so that i can play online on my PS3 as well. I was told wifi doesn't work well with Ps3's normally so i just bought a wired router. So, the mainline internet cord is plugged into a wired router and then another line runs into my computer.

For some reason, after i make an adhoc connection, the computer is not sending the required information to the iPod so that it connects to the internet.

I've tried entering in the information into the Static tab in my ipod as well, and still only get Local Connection instead of Local and Internet.

This is what my connection looks like through the router using ipconfig /all:

A:Creating Wifi hotspot with built-in computer wifi card.

Hi Cromsy,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Unfortunately, it isn't as simple as that. You are connected to the router fine with your computer, but that tells us nothing about the ipod because wireless is off (but that's not the whole story either - you need something extra to do what you want). The following article should tell you what you need and how to do it: How to Connect iPod Touch to Windows 7 Ad-hoc Wireless Network. Although it says Windows 7, there are procedures for Vista as well (and the software will work with Vista).

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

I'm having a problem that's been on and off with my.wifi for a while. I have a Yoga 2 Pro and the WiFi card seems to disappear completely and I can't get it back without removing all the batteries and leaving it a while. It's not like it needs a driver update, it totally disappears as if it's not even installed and won't show up in any OS or even under the "rfkill list command". It appears to be completely failing. Thing is I've swapped it out and it seems to be some part of the operation that mounts it that isn't working. I notice that it installs into the power board and not the motherboard. Would swapping this fix it? Does anyone have any ideas?

We will need the exact model number of the laptop to pull up the right manual and check  out whether you can do the proposed updates, and, if so, how.  http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c00033108

Hello,I own this laptop and I would like to upgrade to a Wifi ac 2x2 card. From the manual I can see this series also comes with ac  as an option being the Intel 3160 card http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04655126 (pdf page 10) so this should theorically work 100%. I was also thiking of a better card like the AzureWave AW-CE123H or Intel 7260... I'm aware of HP being famous for having whitelists for wifi cards and at the same time that newers models form the last years don't have those limits anymore. Does anyone has more info about my compatibility? I read of a guy online who upgraded a Envy 4-1117nr with a AzureWave AW-CE123H which is not actually listed of the "supported" list here http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03599931  Thanks!

A:Wifi card upgrade on 17-g052ng

For systems without a whitelist (manufactured roughly since 4th Quarter 2013) you can install any wi-fi card of the same form factor (for example half-height mini-pcie) and provided you have sufficient antenna. If you try to install a 3 antenna card into a 2 antenna system you will not be happy with the results. Stringing a new antenna is very difficult.  See p. 38 of the Service Manual here.  Manual Some models need the top cover removed to get at the wifi. On yours you remove the bottom cover which is much easier.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I have a Pavilion dv 9750us notebook computer. I've updated my 'elderly' notebook computer to windows 10 (64-bit). However, the dual-band wifi card is no longer supported so I can't get the drivers to work; I get frequent BSODs and restarts plus I loose internet (but not network connectivity) on this computer only. The other six networked devices NEVER loose internet. I have searched forums (fora?) for solutions, and have tried work-arounds and changed settings to no avail. I would like to upgrade the original a/b/g mini pci card to a nice new sexy dual-band ac one. The existing card (intel 4965) is held in with two screws (it's the longer card format, not the shorter one) and has THREE wires connected; the online photos of the new cards aren't showing the antenna wire connectors well enough for me to be sure they have three connectors. Could someone please recommend one or more suitable cards?  I would prefer to replace the card rather than use a USB adapter, since my older computer only has USB 1.0 and would bottleneck data transfer. Other than this one problem, my computer still moves along at a VERY good pace and is super dependable! Many thanks!

I have installed W7 X64 Enterprise on my Tecra M5 (PTM51A) , Installed 4Gb of Memory. Now I want to upgrade the WiFi to N300 with a WiFi card that will load the drivers. I tried an Intel 5100 ABGN (not the Toshiba PA3655U-MPC version) but it will not work. I can only conclude the Tecra is looking for their version.

Question for me & others: What WiFi N300 cards will install?

Thanks Johnp4216

A:Tecra M5 - WiFi card upgrade

Problem is that officially WLAN card upgrade is not supported and unfortunately there is no info about that. On this forum you can find many threads with the same theme. If you have some time try to use advanced search option and check if you can find some info about WLAN card upgrade.

Hi Everyone, I have a Thinkpad T420 and want to replace the wifi card in here. Currently it's an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000, single band. I don't really want to spend too much on the new card, hopefully around £5-10. Any suggestions for a better dual band card or better which won't need a Bios mod i.e. a card that will work with plug and play if there is such a thing and has a Windows 10 driver for it? Thanks in advance. 

A:Upgrade wifi card for T420

You can only use a card that was originly sold on the T420.  There are no dual band cards.

I have a HP Pavillion G6-2249WM laptop With AMD A-6 4400M 2.70ghz processor and 8GB Ram.  I now have a Ralink RT-3290 802.11 bgn WiFi adapter.  UNITED STATES I want to upgrade the WiFi adapter to a dual band 802.11 abgn2.4ghz/5.0ghz card. I have 200mps internet, and I cannot connect at 5G.  I searched the forums, and got very conflicting information.  The Service Manual states I should be able to install  P/N 602993-001 Realtek 8188C8 abgn 2x2 wifi and Bluetooth 3.0 HS combo adapter, however, in other replies it states this will not connect to 5G. Can you tell me which wifi adapter to upgrade to? Will I have to upgrade the Motherboard or the BIOS to make it work?

Hi, Your machine was built late 2012 therefore the chance to upgrade wifi card is from very slim to none. I don't know which manual you are talking about but manual for your machine only shows 3 compatible parts (page 49 of the first manual on the following link, none of them can use for 5GHz)      http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-g6-Notebook-PC-series/5296082/model/5309552/manuals/ Option: Use USB wireless card such as:    http://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/c/technology/networking/wireless-usb-adapters Regards.

We have had problems with the wifi on our HP stream since we bought it in January.  It frequently won't connect - asks for password and repeatedly says it is incorrect.  Eventually it connects but only a frustrating period of re-entering a password we know to be correct.  Sometimes it even drops when connected.  We have taken it back to the store twice - both times it has supposedly been fixed.  We have had Virgin out to check our router.  All was fine and he suggested it might be the wifi card.  Is this possible?  Can we upgrade? If not, is there an ethernet cable we can use to connect? (I bought one but it needed a CD drive).  Very frustrated so ideas welcome!

A:Can I upgrade the wifi card on HP Stream 11?

The manual for the Stream 11 shows that the Wifi card (known as the WLAN module) is socketed and replaceable. In the past HP has whitelisted certain cards so that only specific ones will work with a given BIOS. I am not sure if that is still the case with the Stream laptops but you could risk buying a card that would not work.  Have you tried reinstalling the Wifi driver from the hp.com site?  That has been required by some other Stream notebook owners who have posted here.

Hey guys, I would like to upgrade the wifi card in my E6430 to an Intel 7260 HMC.
Is this possible or are there features of the Ultimate 6300 directly in the BIOS?

Thanks.

A:Upgrade the Wifi Card in My HP 17-e118dx

Hi: You should be able to, if your notebook currently has two antenna leads attached to the wireless card. Since your notebook has an AMD processor and chipset, you would be limited to installing a Broadcom dual band wireless N card with bluetooth, or a Broadcom dual band wireless AC card with bluetooth. 99% of the time, Intel wireless cards don't work on AMD platforms. If your notebook only has one antenna lead, you would have to be willing and able to take the whole notebook apart including the display panel area, to properly run a second antenna.
