Upgraded my DV6 to Windows 10 and now the WiFi does not work

Q: Upgraded my DV6 to Windows 10 and now the WiFi does not work

After my upgrade to Windows 10 on my HP Pavilion dv6t-6c00 CTO Quad Edition Entertainment Notebook, the Wifi is no longer working ... in the sense that it does not find my Wifi network. I believe, that technically, the dv6t is not supported by HP for Windows 10 but everything thing else seems to work albeit a bit differently at times. For instance, the WiFi but no longer toggles the WiFi on/off but now turns Airplane mode on/off. In my office I am most always on my wired network so this is not an issue but certainly will be when I am not in the office. The driver is at the latest available (for Windows 7) from HP so I'm not sure this is a driver issue or something else. Any ideas or has anyone else had this issue on a dv6t? I should also mention that Bluetooth no longer works either ... service will not start.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

A: Upgraded my DV6 to Windows 10 and now the WiFi does not work

TBiggi1 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I had EXACTLY the same problem on my DV6 laptop -- after I upgraded it to Win10. Despite pushing the WiFi key time after time, it would always stay orange and the WiFi never worked. But ... to fix this, I had to do the "upgrade" again -- and do two things very differently ... 1: Prepare for clean-install:If, after the upgrade, your PC is only partially functioning, that means that the Upgrade did not go well and stuff is still there from the prior OS corrupting the functionality of Win10. You MIGHT be able to fix this by doing a clean-install of Win10. Problem is that a clean-install often does not recognize the prior activation, even though it should. So, you need to do 2( below BEFORE you do the clean-install: 2) Create a file needed to reactivate Win10 after the clean-install BEFORE you do the upgrade, follow these instructions from the community Win10 forums about creating a genuineticket.xml file: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/23354-clean-install-windows-10-directly-without-having-upgrade-fi... You will need this later to activate your Win10 pc after the clean-install. NOTE: I did the clean-install, and even though the product-key was SUPPOSED to work to activate Win10, it did not. And, calls to MS about this were wastes of time -- since the MS idiots said I could not activate Win10 with a Win7 product key!! What DID work was using the genuineticket approach documented in the tenforums thread. I copied that from the USB stick where I saved it, rebooted, and after that, my DV6 was activated -- and it's been working great ever since! ---------------------------I did note that you ALREADY did the Upgrade, so you might not be able to do the genuineticket stuff, and if that does not work, after the clean-install, you will NOT be able to activate your copy of Win10. So, yet another workaround that MIGHT work, instead of doing a clean-install, is doing something known as a Repair-Install. This is the least destructive of all the Windows recovery functions and rewrites the Windows system files, including the drivers, leaving your data, settings, and applications intact.To do this, you will need to use the link to download Win10 installation media and either burn a DVD or create a USB stick: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install?ocid=ms_wol_win10Note that when you go do download and build install media, the tool defaults to matching what is already installed on your PC (as in, Home for Home, 64-bit for 64-bit). Make sure you select the same version as needed for your PC. If you do not, the resulting media will be different and will force you to enter a NEW product code!Once you have that media, follow the instructions in the link: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/16397-repair-install-windows-10-place-upgrade.htmlGood Luck

Hi All,

Recently I have upgraded my Lenovo G580 laptop from windows 8 to windows 8.1. After up-gradation Wifi is stop working. I have checked the WIFI device driver(Broadcom 802.11n) in device manger and it is showing working fine but in the Networks section the Wifi is showing disabled.

I have search a lot but not find any solution. Please help me to find the solution for the issue.

I am attaching the screen shot of the device driver property and the my network panel.

Regards
Vivek

A:WiFi is not working when upgraded the OS to Windows 8.1

Hello,

Have you downloaded the driver for Windows 8.1 at the Broadcom site?

If that didn't work, you might want to try the Program Compatibility Assistant and use the Windows 7 Driver, instead of the Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.

Hi
So about a week ago I made the decision to update to windows 10, little did I know it was going to crash my laptop. what happens is my screen won't stop flashing. The icons on my screen appear and disappear over and over and over again. It never stops. It never stayz long enough for me to click on anything.

My question is, is there anything I can manually do, that won't erase the entirety of my hard drive, to either restore it back to windows 7 or just make windows 10 work?

I'd really love some advice, I honestly don't want to pay to have it checked out. (I'm a poor college student)

First off this is my sisters PC which is 250 miles from me. I tried to get her online but no go. I had her reset the Modem,Uninstall the Network adapter and reboot,Double click on the Internet Red X and it tells her the cable is disconnected.

Her PC is not hooked up to the Modem with Ethernet. It must have been wireless. She told me her Network Adapter and it is the same as mine. Realtech PCIe.

After not being able to get it going from here I told her to go to Walmart and get an Ethernet cable and how to connect it. Should work for her that way but I was wondering what else it could be.

The weird thing is that all of the network devices were able to connect and work properly except one laptop.
 
Dell Lattitude D820
Windows XP Home SP3
 
The wireless network card seems to be working properly in connecting to the network, as I can type in direct (numeric) IP addresses and see the router and modem, but this machine has no Internet connection. Under LAN & Network connections, there is no internet connection listed. So far, I've tried:
 
Tried to "Add a Connection" - still not showing an internet connection
Updated the Driver for the 1390 wireless card - now matches Dells most current version
 
Any ideas?

'Lo Again,

Was wondering if anyone knows offhand if my 13-year-old Toshiba laptop can "take" a wireless card. If it matters, it's an original Pentium 90 running Win'95. The problem is, I don't even know where to begin to look for an upgrade slot/compartment on a laptop (this is my first one, fresh off Ebay).

Also, can Win95 itself even handle wireless networking? If necessary, I have my own copy of Win98 that I can install; will that work? (Unfortunately, I can't put any form/shape of Linux on this thing, as the particular piece of software I require--ExamSoft--only runs on Windows).

A:Upgraded to Seven now mic doesn't work

microphones don't generally need drivers.

maybe you just need to turn it on and give it a boost.

control panel >> hardware and sound >> manage audio devices >> recording tab >> click on microphone >> properties >> levels >> crank it up >> maybe there's a custom tab too with a boost box to tick.

also make sure the mic is set to be the default device if you want to record from it.

Hi all!

I cannot seem to get any WiFi USB adapter I plug in to my new PC with a fresh install of Win 7 64-bit, to work. Weirdly enough, they work fine on all the other computers in the house, including Macs and PCs w/ Windows XP & Windows 7 32-bit.

- I have tried a Linksys WUSB54GC adapter. I have manually installed the x64 drivers for it. That one is recognized, but when I try to "Enable" it, it will go through the whole process of enabling w/o actually enabing.

- I have tried an Airlink 101 AWLL5077. I have installed the drivers sucessfully (I think). This one works, but it doesn't detect any WiFi networks in the area, but only on my new PC. It detects them fine on other PCs even if they are placed in the exact same location as my new PC.

- I have tried a nameless brand of WiFi adapter, shows up in device manager (on other PCs) as RTL8187_Wireless. Again, this adapter works on every other computer but when I have plugged it in to my new PC, and have installed the drivers, nothing happens. It isn't even recognized.
Original mobo drivers are fully installed. Regional settings are correct, to my knowledge.
Anyone have an idea?
Thanks!

So I spent a couple of hours on Newegg digging through the feedback of various wifi adapters, and it's starting to look like just about all of them have problems with Win7 64-bit.

Does anyone here have any solid recommendation of one that does? I would be particularly interested in one that works with a Gigabyte motherboard with the realtek chipset.

After upgrading my OS from Windows 7 to Windows 10, the wifi card doesn't work anymore.  I've downloaded the latest drivers for my wifi card, or at least I think I have, but it still doesn't work.  The wifi card is a Intel 11230BNHMW Centrino Wireless-N 1030 WiFi Wireless Mini PCI-E Card.  Does anyone know if this card is compatible with Windows 10.  If so, which driver do I need?

Hi, hope I've put enough specs in profile for you to help. I have a Compaq Presario 6735s I bought around 2008. CPU quite slow but graphics card not bad so made decision to upgrade. Looked up the laptop manual here to find compatible CPUs for motherboard, socket type etc. Went through 3 different (*****ic) buys before I found one that actually fitted.
Now with everything reassembled, screen will flash up once upon powering on, then nothing. All usual lights come on, even my wireless connects, makes usual start up noises, fan, dvd drive etc ....
Proceeded to take everything apart again, re-connected everything I tampered with. Even RAM, which I didn't have to remove before.
Still same reaction starting up.

Really frustrated with myself as thought this would be the right one. Could honestly cry, haha.

I read the tutorial on here called 'No POST' to no avail either. I really hope it can come back from this.
One last thing I can think of (before pulling new CPU out) is upgrading BIOS to support new CPU but with no screen I am stuck.

Can someone please give me a little direction?
 

A:Upgraded CPU on laptop, now screen won't work

Did you re-install the old CPU to see if the laptop booted normally again? Upgrading CPU's on laptop motherboards can be a very difficult thing to do. What is supposed to be compatible in reality is not

Hi all

At the weekend I purchased (via online download from Microsoft website) Windows Vista Home Premium SP1.

My son built me a media PC using a motherboard and processor he already had. I purchased brand new SATA hard drives (4 x 1 terrabyte).

He built the PC, loaded vista and it all worked beautifully, except we couldn't get the media player to display properly. We decided that as we had already invested a fair bit into this system we would buy a new motherboard which included onboard graphics that could display HDMI through our new TV. Motherboard and new ram arrived today and all duly installed. It all boots up but gets to the 'windows won't start' screen - and lists the options choose safe mode etc., and it seems to load windows drivers (lists all of them on the screen) and then just goes round in circles and does the whole thing again.

I tried to do a repair your computer, but that doesn't work either.

My other son tells me he thinks that as it is considered a new pc (motherboard change means most parts are onboard and therefore Vista thinks it's a whole new PC) I will have to do a complete reinstall - is this the case?

One other to note is that we have tried using both VGA and HDMI display outputs, but the problem remains the same with both.


Anyway - this is my setup

Motherboard - Asus P5Q-EM
Ram 4GB
Hard Drives - 4 x 1 TB
Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 (full version, not upgrade or OEM)
Display screen is a Toshiba 40ZF355DB

A:Upgraded motherboard & ram now Vista won't work

your son is correct in that:4-that vista will consider the new mobo as new pc you need to reinstall vista

I have been trying to upgrade WIndows 10 Pro on my x230T to the Fall Creators update (1703 or 1709).  But each time it gets to 27%, it does its first reboot and then crashes and rolls back the installation. Microsoft support spent a bunch of time on it, and they couldn't get it to work.  They pointed me to the Lenovo Support page where it wasn't mentioned in the list of tested machines.Has anyone with an X230T get this update installed?

A:x230t, upgraded to msata, trying to get second hdd to work

Hello and welcome,
 
1st: your subject and content don't seem to match.  Do you in fact have multiple drives installed? Which one holds the OS you're trying to update?
 
2nd: are you trying to do the update via Windows Update?  Sometimes downloading the full installer and running setup from that - or even creating bootable media and running that - can get around WU failures.
 
Sorry I can't address x230t specifics.

I've scoured the internet for answers, but wireless problems are so vast that I can't pinpoint the answer to my problem. This is what happened:

1. Internet and computer working fine as usual.
2. Windows Updater offered to update with Service Pack 1
3. I confirmed
4. After the computer restarted, I tried to go about my business.
5. NO INTERNET CONNECTION.
6. Uninstalled the Service Pack, restarted. Still no connection.

Other Symptoms (I watch House too much):

-Opening Dell Wireless WLAN Card utility spurs the following message: "The Wireless Network Adapter could not be accessed. This application may have diminished functionality as a result".
- Dell Wireless WLAN card Utility says: Radio Disabled
-Radio Configuration/Dell Quickset WiFi Catcher says:Switch: Status Enabled

So somehow this service pack did something that disabled/messed up my wireless -- and now I don't know what to do! I am running Windows Home Vista Premium, and am using an B/G/N Draft wireless chip from Broadcom/Dell.

Help would be awesome... please
 

A:Solved: WiFi doesn't work after Windows Update SP1

Are you sure Service Pack one didn't restart you WLAN Autooonfig on your PC?

Maybe you want to make sure thats all turned off since your just using the dell supplied software.

Hi guys,

i recently bought a windows 10 tablet from Onda that came with full licenced windows 10 (didnt upgrade from anything) and i reset it as soon as id finished fiddling about with it and testing it so i could set it up fresh. it worked perfectly before resetting it and it connected to my wifi fine but after it wont find any internet connections and when i click the wifi icon in the corner it says connections unavailable.

ive tried the reg delete thing as it has vpn on it and i googled around trying to find a fix, one of which suggested if you upgrade from windows 8 that vpn breaks the wifi so this might be similar? however the command prompt didnt find the reg key/thing it was supposed to delete so that was a no go.

ive tried diagnosing connection problems and it resets the wifi adaptor but nothing improves, ive also tried updating the wifi driver but it says its already up to date and i cant connect to the internet on it to search for another adaptor. ive contacted Onda but theyve just offered to replace it if i send this back which im a bit wary of doing as they might just deny recieving the item and im out ?160 + whatever it costs to send to china tracked.

could anyone please help me?
this was what i tried:

Step-2: Execute the following command and then press Enter

reg delete HKCRCLSID{988248f3-a1ad-49bf-9170-676cbbc36ba3} /va /f

Step-3: Enter the bellow command and press Enter

netcfg -v -u dni_dne
it couldnt find the reg to delete

I have a Dell Inspiron 5720. When I have Windows 10 installed on internal hard drive in primary slot,
wifi works fine.
I need to have multiple OS. So I add a mSATA 128 GB, an SATA SSD on HDD primary slot, and an SATA SSD  on DVD slot. Now I have Windows 10 installed on mSATA drive, Linux installed on primary slot, and another Linux installation on DVD slot SSD.
Now I have a problem with Windows 10 installed on mSATA SSD. The wi-fi does not work, although the gigabit network interface works fine. I see wi-fi card is recognized in Windows 10 device manager, and function properly. But it shows wi-fi tuned off. Even I go to control panel to turn on wi-fi, it won't actually turn on, and eventually shows wi-fi turned off.
I also notice that in Linux, I can not turn on wi-fi either. When there was no mSATA card, and no SSD drive in DVD slot, I had Linux installed on promary slot SSD, the wi-fi was working also.
So I think there may be a hardware conflict somewhere when I have a mSATA, a primary SSD, and a 2nd SSD in DVD slot.

Hello forum people,

I have the following problem on my Toshiba Satellite R850 running Win7 64bit: I decided to change the wireless adapter so I can connect to the 5GHz wifi network my router provides which wasnt possible on the Atheros wireless adapter it came with. I changed it to a Intel Wireless AC 3160- the physical change went quick and without problems and while the adapter is basically working now the problem I'm facing now is that the F8-hotkey function to de-/activate the Wifi and Bluetooth is no longer working. When I press the hotkey button all the different hotkey combinations show up on the upper part of the screen, but now there's only F1-F7 and F9, F8 just went missing. Does anyone have any idea how to get it back?

Thanks in advance and take care

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?
