After a recent update to service pack 1, our clients  Wireless no longer works. I have downloaded and installed the latest Bios and Wireless driver from HP's website. The wireless card is 4321AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n Wi-Fi and the HP laptop model is Pavilion dv6449us.

Here is what Everest gives me:

Can you right click and delete the device, then reboot and let it detect it again and re-install that way?

If the drivers from their site do not work I would contact HP support to see if they have encountered this before.

Ok, I had already downloaded and installed the Wireless drivers with no luck, if nothing works soon, I will have to call HP.

I don't think it's the ISATAP problem...

Is the card visible in your BIOS?

I don't see the wireless card in the BIOS. There is no actual place for wireless settings, also i have replaced two mini-pci express wifi cards and neither worked.

Hmmm.  Yeah, I'm thinking a call to HP would be the next step since you've tried installing multiple NICs.
