Hi guys!

I heed a little help. Mountain Lion detects my ProBook 4530s wi-fi card but it doesn't work (can't find any wireless networks). I just updated 10.8.0 to 10.8.2 successfully, ML runs perfectly but wi-fi isn't working, on 10.8.0 didn't worked either. I'm pressing little wi-fi button above the keyboard but nothing happens.
Sry about grammar mistakes.

Any ideas?

Do you actually have the Atheros WiFi card?

I just found that wi-fi can find wireless networks only when I disconnect LAN cable from my 4530s. I reinstalled Atheros kexts many times and nothing is changing. :/
I installed ML 3rd time on my laptop, but in previous installations LAN and wi-fi worked fine together. But I think it's not the worst that can be.

Check your BIOS settings, that sounds like the most obvious solution.

What kind of card is it? Atheros or not?

put or remove a mark into the box "WIFI/LAN switching (or something like that)" in BIOS. it was under "System configuration" i think!
