HP DV6315ca wireless not working

Recently downgraded from vista to hp. All of my drivers are working except the wireless. I have downloaded windows installer and then installed the driver on the hp site for my computer but when I am in the device manager, I cannot find the driver! The wireless button is on my I get the orange light no matter which way it goes. the help section in the device manager says that some laptops have to have their wireless devices enabled through the BIOS (computer setup utility). Is this why I am not seeing it in the device manager? Should I even be checking the BIOS? Any help is greatly appreciated. I even updated my BIOS after the downgrade and the wireless still does not work but I can connect to the internet using my ethernet cables.

If you dont see it in the device manager , then you have an item listed as yellow /unknown device ,that is the wireless and needs the driver installed.
if you see neither then you may have disabled the wireless in the bios.

Where can i get drivers for my Compaq Presario CQ50? I downgrade it from Windows Vista to Windows XP Home Edition. Thank you so much for your help.


Downgrading from Vista to XP is not a good choice. Specially HP Notebooks are not comaptible with retail version operating systems and its difficult to find the drivers and get it work.

I found a few. Please install in the same sequence and check. A restart is must after each driver installation.

Recently downgraded to windows xp from vista, Atheros wireless will not turn on automaticcal when computer is restarted. At the windows loading screen, the wireless light turns blue for 3 seconds and then...


I had this problem too. You need the HP Wireless Assistant. Download it here- ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp36501-37000/sp36770.exe

Once installed, open the HP Wireless Assistant and click Properties button. Check the box next to "Independent controls for installed wireless devices." Then click "Turn All On" button. On next boot it will be enabled!

Wireless connection no longer works after vista upgrade


HP uses "branded" wireless modules,which means it's got to be HP or it doesn't get to play.
Does device manager see the wireless device? I've had similar situations with the 8000s. Always the driver or the wireless utility was the problem. Try letting windows manage the device, or if you already are, disable that and use the devices utiliy to manage it.
BTW, most systems consider BT as wireless.
Good luck, hope that helps
