On Windows*10, the Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 2230 should work with the inbox drivers (version 220.127.116.11) provided by the OS. Intel does not provide drivers for this adapter on this version of Windows*.
Have checked with HP* if they have any updates. We recommend that you contact your computer manufacturer first to see if they have any updates available as we understand this wireless card came installed by factory, correct?
What were the latest driver you used for Windows* 8 and 8.1 that didn't work?
For this wireless card, HP provides drivers for Windows 8 and 8.1 but for Windows 10 drivers, you are asked by HP to get them from Windows update.
I recently factory reset my HP laptop. That is, I used recovery DVD's to bring it back to its original factory state therefore wiping out my Windows 10 and putting back Windows 8.0. This is done to see if wireless connectivity is stable with the factory image.
The factory image (Win 8.0) has Intel driver 18.104.22.168 installed which works great,
I downloaded and installed Intel driver 22.214.171.124 - the latest and greatest to date from the intel website.
After about 5 minutes, I keep getting a limited connection and have to reset the wireless adapter.
Now, I have looked on the web for solutions and one of them was to put the power saver on the wireless adapter to Maximum performance as the default is set to Medium Power Saving.
Once I did this, I regained stability.
I am still testing this out to see if my wifi will lose connectivity again.
Just did a few more tests by fooling around with the power saver settings.
So, what I found out is the following.
With Intel Driver 126.96.36.199:
Putting the wireless adapter power saver setting to MEDIUM POWER SAVING will cause connectivity issues. After about 5 minutes, you will get a yellow exclamation mark in the system tray on the wireless icon.
Solution: Go back into POWER SAVER - > Advanced settings -> Wireless adapter and set it to MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE.
Without even needing to disable and re-enable the adapter, connectivity was restored!
I'm gonna try this a few more times but I think I found the answer.
And if this is the case, that means that driver 188.8.131.52 overrides the wireless adapter power setting.
Also to note - I am running on Battery so I made the changes to the battery section and not the Plugged in section.
Intel recommends that you always use the drivers and updates offered offered by your computer manufacturer. Our drivers are generic and may not meet all the requirements of your system. Set the maximum performance on plugged in as well to assure you will maintain a steady connection. Thank you for sharing your results with us.
