Centrino N-1030 not working after Windows 10 1909 upgrade


Hi I have just upgraded my HP Pavilion Dv6 to Windows 10 1909 and the wireless card which is a Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 1030

  • Manufacturer
  • Intel Corporation
  • Availability


  • Installed
  • True
  • MA
  • Service Name
  • NETwNs64
  • Driver Provider
  • Intel
  • Driver Version
  • Driver Date

  • PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_008B&SUBSYS_53158086&REV_34\4&9AB72CF&0&00E1
  • Revision

However after the Windows upgrade I cannot turn on wireless either by the switch or in settings, all I get is the amber light staying on and not the white light.

Help and advice with this issue would be most helpful indeed.


Best Regards

According to the compatibility chart (here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005602/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking.html), this card is only support by the inbox driver. This means that the driver comes from an earlier Windows version (read: Windows 8/8.1). It also means that any attempt to upgrade the wireless drivers - such as will happen during a Windows 10 upgrade - could result in a non-working configuration (i.e. loss of the earlier driver).


You could try going into Device Manager and see if an attempt to install the latest driver (or a remove and then add) will coax it into putting back the original driver.


Hope this helps,
