I have recently purchased the above laptop and have problems with the automatic connection of the WLAN to my Fritz box 7390:
When I boot the notebook (Win7 HP x64) is the wireless card turned on until the very end (the diode goes to NB) it tries to connect to it, but seconds after 10 hours. is the red X appears.
When I look in the Control Panel, look at the Wi-Fi connection, then this is activated (with right click appears "off" only) if I then go to troubleshooting, it is determined that the wireless adapter is disabled, I click on the "This Fix "Run the communication sec after the third, partly I must also make it twice because after the start of Firefox connection is gone.
Check "Connect automatically" is set.
Check "The computer can turn off this device to save power" is not set.
The FB is set:
That reminds me to just yet, why are only 117 Mbit / s, but should be the 300th
Does anyone have a solution to the connection problem?
Please help me I google now since Friday then, oh yeah, SP1 is installed on the NB and also updates, driver of the wireless adapter is also loud Win7 currently, the Department has Firmware Version: 84.05.22.
The wireless adapter is an Intel ® Centrino ® Wireless-N 2230 or must I take one of the "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter", which still stand as a wireless network connection, 2 and 3 are available?
The connection should indeed occur automatically after you have connected to the network once. What you can try is to download the latest drivers from your laptop manufacturer for the wireless adapter, save it to the desktop, then uninstall the Intel ® Centrino ® Wireless-N 2230 from device manager, and the Intel PROSet wireless WiFi software from control panel/uninstall a program. Then install the recently downloaded drivers, this would clear any possible corruption of the drivers.
You may also try and start the computer in safe mode with networking, and test your connection there, this would help you to find out if the issue is hardware or software related, (if the issue persists in safe mode with networking then it would be hardware related) see the instructions from the link below:

Also the speed you mention is accurate, you would only get 300mbps in a perfect environment, but on the 2.4GHz band there is a lot of interference, you may get better speed if you change to a less used channel, like channel 1 or 11 (the default is 6).
The network adapter you need to select for your wireless connections is the Intel ® Centrino ® Wireless-N 2230 , the Microsoft virtual Miniport ones are not actual adapters.
