It installed but there is a red X on the bars in the tray, not recognizing any networks. Could it be the wireless card may be shot? The wired connection is working though.

So there are no yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager? The Wifi card may be shot but you can verify using a live linux disk and see if it picks up the Wifi network.

The PCI device ID you posted is for the LAN Card not for the Wireless LAN Card!

 

Can you post the ID for the wireless card? probably is the one from Atheros that usually show the red cross on the tray but it will work with an updated driver.

Stuff like that can give you gray hairs. Glad you sorted it out.

Ok, most likely the OP didn't provide the correct HP model because for the g4-1015dx the Realtek wireless card isn't on the HP list of drivers!
