Cannot connect HP hs2350 HSPA+ Mobile Broadband module (WWAN) after Windows 8.1 upgrade

Hi everyone!

I have upgraded my HP Elitebook 8470p notebook PC from "Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x64" to "Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center x64" OS.

After this OS upgrade the HP hs2350 HSPA+ Mobile Broadband module (Ericsson WWAN) ceased to function.


Followed steps to resolve the issue:

  • I have uninstalled the device and driver via Windows Device Manager, uninstalled the driver software from Control Panel and rebooted the machine.
  • Opened Device Manager and tried to update the driver, but Windows couldn't find online a suitable driver.
  • Went to HP product support page and downloaded and installed: firmware update for Windows 8 "sp60091.exe"; latest Windows 8.1 driver "sp63292 update".
  • Rebooted the machine, and the problem was the same: 


Since the OS upgrade I cannot have access to my broadband module (it is not detected).


 I have checked the Windows Device Manager and it seems that the driver is correctly installed but the device "HP hs2350 HSPA+ Mobile Broadband Network Adapter" is constantly turning on and off with an exclamation point. Seeing its properties I get the message:

"This device cannot start. (Code 10) {Operation Failed} The requested operation was unsuccessful"

or "This device is working properly"

(this information in randomly changing in every second with the exclamation mark next to the device).


I tried to run Windows Troubleshooting -> Hardware & Sound -> Hardware & Devices, but it was not found a compatible driver....

Can anyone help me, please?
