Problem on Broadcom 802.11b/g on HP pavillion running Vista Home Premium

I have the same problem. My o/s is not able to find driver. it used to work (8 months straight) properly until around oct. 5 when it started to come on & off intermitently. I did a system recovery and it worked for about 2 days. It has stopped working again. When I reload the original driver, it sometimes works... Help!

What kind of problem are you getting? is it a driver problem or wireless connection problem? try changing channel in your router. there might be a new wireless network installed which is affecting your frequency.

My broadcom wireless lan adapter for windows vista not detected in device manager and hp wireless assaistant not working.


You can run HP update to download and install drivers on your PC/Laptop, or run Microsoft update too.

Your HP PC came with a tool called Recovery Manager, Click the vista start menu and in the search bar type (Recovery Manager) without the parenthesis and it should display programs like RECOVERY DISC CREATION and RECOVERY MANAGER , please select the RECOVERY MANAGER an if you have VISTA USER ACCOUNT CONTROL turned on you will have to allow the program to run.
OK, once program launch, select the advance Options and click on HARDWARE DRIVER RE-INSTALLATION and click next. follow the screen instructions to re-install the driver or drivers.
Make sure you are not running any other program when using recovery manager.
GOOD LUCK

On my Dell Inspiron 1521: Broadcom Network Adapter Error Code 10


Go to Dell and download the driver from there. The MS driver doesn't actually control the device, only controls function after device is active and working. Look on the bottom or back of the computer for the Dell service tag number, and use this to identify the correct device and get the device drivers. You may also find some other things there that weren't installed by the OS.

Unable to use my HSPA USB2 modem with Vista Home Premium SP1, on my laptop


There is a VERY good chance that your USB HSPA Modem is not compatible/complient with Microsoft Vista. There are very few older parts on the market that are compatible.

You can also go to the manufacture web site of the HSPS modem and see if there are any Vista Drivers. If not, then you are out of luck.

Wireless driver problem


I am currently using Linux on a Compaq C500 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. Sounds like your wireless adapter is on of the ones that uses the b43 module like mine.

Aside from using the correct module, you also need a firmware image. Instructions can be found at: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

Hope this helps and good luck with Linux! Once you fully switch to Linux you'll never go back to crappy M$ products!
