Question about HP WLAN MultiPort W200 802.11b Wireless Adapter
Hello, looking for a simple solution, or...a step by step intructions on how to solve my problem. I just installed Fedora 8 on my computer and realized that my fedora doesn't seem to like my built in adapter (the wlan multiport w200...i run on a compaq evo n610c) and i can't seem to find a simple downloadable driver anywhere. and it seems like the installation of a different driver for linux that can support my adapter is kind of complicated to do. if you could help me with this, it would be GREATLY appreciated.
(By the way, i dont see a place for my email at the moment..my email is email@example.com, again, thanks!)
Seems I am in the same boat. I brought my N610c over to my parents for Xmas and the W200 was trying to connect to the D-Link wireless router my dad has. It kept not finding anything and then, BAM, BSOD. Restarted.....same thing after 2 seconds of the Welcome screen. Something's messed up with the W200 somehow or another......

There is a solution to this, and you won't have to buy a new card. The folks at HP, however smart in their design of this laptop, have not properly updated the bug fix for the wlan w200 drivers. What you'll need to do is actually take back your network adapter driver all the way back to Version 1.0 revision C. I did this with an n610c that I got for free because it was BSOD'ing every time the wireless was turned on. For the most part the wireless can handle older routers and wlan areas, but will BSOD when within range of a wireless "N" adapter. Simply download the driver version 1.0c and you should have no more issues.
Tip: You can disable the card manually by pressing your "Fn + F2" keys, rather than trying to navigate your menus before getting the BSOD.

Yes you have to go to your internet's routers web setting page and change your settings from whatever you have now to WEP and follow these instructions.
Sup guys i found the cure to this horroble blue screen death for this N610c. Ok i called hp and they wanted $69.99 for tech support well just imagine what i told them to do lol. Anyway i did my research and guess what i found out. That the updated driver is made to screw up your connection so that you have to call tech support and they can steal your money.
Im a computer technician since 1990 and what i discover was that beautiful driver that works here is a list of drivers that cannot be used on the Evo N610C because it causes conflits that no one can fix i know for sure.
List of the no no drivers are:
These drivers will make your screen go from windows to BLUE.
Here is how i fixed the problem i deleted everything that had to do with LANMultiport drivers every single one then i searched my laptop to remove the rest of the lost files.
Once that was done the i installed this driver (sp23031)
Once that was installed and the puter rebooted the wifi card found my wireless connection and asked me to input my Network Key and walla it works great now without any problems.
Im using windows XP Home i just bought memory cause im installing windows 7 32 bit.
Finally the key is this driver (sp23031) for both home and pro eddition.
Here is the link to download your driver:
It works! Please hit me up a feedback
