installed Windows Ultimate over Home Premium and now wireless internet doesn't work
Posted on 2012-08-11
I purchased a HP Pavilion dv6-6c14nr which had Windows Home Premium 64 bit on it. I then installed Windows Ultimate 64 which I had purchased for my son but since he did not use it I went ahead and installed it on this one.
The Wireless Network does not work, saying that there is no driver and no network connectivity. I am staying at a hotel so I am not sure if a regular LAN would work or not. I used my other laptop to download all the HP drivers I could find and installed the ones for wireless and LAN ethernet. I see the driver for the LAN network, but I do not see anything for Wireless.
I am actually not exactly sure, but the light for the button that is supposed to be for wireless connectivity is lit up, so I guess it is a driver. Should I do a recovery (which I do not know how to do because I do not see a button on there like you see on some laptops such as a Lenovo?
