Vistumbler will NOT help you in this situation as you need a wifi adaptor present to use it which you don't have.

There must be something your doing wrong buddy.

Think this is one for HP support

HP live support isn't available for my speicic model. And phone support is ££. So i guess this is down to Emailing them

Are you sure it's not because there are no networks available?

Well this topic is now 5 pages long and getting nowhere.

My conclusion is that either your built-in wifi adaptor is dead or your not installing the drivers correctly.

Each time I point you to a driver you say you've done it but don't give a details of error messages or how the software install went.

I cannot think of any other way to install a wifi driver apart from the methods I've gave you.

101% sure. And remember the wifi adaptor is NOT detected so it's impossible to find networks available

I manually added the correct Broadcom driver in Device Manager A adapter! is showing up at last! but it does unfortunately have a yellow '!' beside it, i then went to safe mode and went to device manager, the '!' disappeared i then thought ooh im gonna try and connect while in in safe mode and see if it works, i then tried but the connectivity stuff are disabled so i couldnt, so i thought oh well i can try Safe Mode with Networking i then went into safe mode with networking and that Broadcom adapter turned back into a '!' and so it couldn't recognise it still. So this is telling us something?

Bottom Line:
Broadcom works in Safe Mode
Doesnt work anywhere else.

Yeah i give up on this for now. In safemode nothing apart from finger print sensor is shown as '?' but the unlucky thing is you can't test the connection out in safe mode.
Where as in normal mode it doesn't show as a healthy device.

Thanks for the H3LP.

In safe mode with networking device manager shows the Broadcom adapter with a '?', so it doesn't work.

Hi There

Have you updated the driver for the unknown device in full mode?
