Using built-in wireless

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

 

Long time no see. I've been busy with life, sold my server (moved, couldn't carry it with myself). Now as I got a new laptop, decided to use my old one as a home server.

 

As it's a laptop (with two hard drives), it has a wireless card built in. However, I can't seem to be able to enable it in a way that Control Panel -> Wireless detects it too as a wireless network adapter. However, BT works just fine.

 

Has anyone ever successfully enabled their built-in WiFi to be detected as a USB/Compatible one?

What chipset does you laptop has?

What brand and model is it?

 

It's an HP Elitebook 8530W, with an Intel Wireless Pro/N (03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300) chipset. It is definitely recognized as BT works through it, and I have BT connectivity.
