14) Save your downloaded driver file in a USB flash drive and transfer it to your computer that has no Internet access. Then you should install the Qualcomm wireless adapter driver on that computer manually.
I went to the HP web site, had the site determine my notebook type, and then downloaded the Qualcomm Atheros QCA9000 driver, and installed it. After installing, the device manager still has the network device listed under OTHER and when I tell it to update the driver, it says it can't find a driver for the device.
Did you try forcing the driver to install by selecting the "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" option, then click on Have Disk and browse to that setup information file and pick the specific qualcomm atheros wireless card you have from the list? 2b1af7f3a8
