That rock.bt_coex branch has been abandoned for a few years. If you are searching for an answer with google, use the tools, and change any time to something that reflects when the problem started and you will have better results.

If you want a fix that doesn't fail, take apart the laptop and see if there are 2 antenna connectors and move the antenna wire to the other connector. I know some of the HP laptops are a pain to take apart as the cases are snap together and special plastic tools are needed to avoid damaging the parts
