Re: I want to change the ''location'' to Broadcom...
Some wireless cards are hard-coded to different countries.
If you are trying to use it with your access point, make sure the access point uses a channel number of less than 12, otherwise it should not matter about country setting.
Sometime you can change the settings in Device Manager in Advanced tab...

Need to contact the HP Tech Support Number 1-800-474-6836 and checked whether the notebok was under any recall for WLAN Card and if yes and i'm sure it would have expired then Its time to pay $259.99+ taxes and get the Motherboard replaced for you can order Linksys WUSB600N Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Adapter worth $ 79.99 + Taxes to use Wireless Internet efficiently
You need to download the wireless driver from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers: - http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html
You will find you LAN (BroadcomLAN driver 4.28) or (Broadcom Giga LAN driver 8.27.1)
storage (Intel chip set driver)
and Wireless (Broadcomm 802.11b+g wireless) or (Intel 802,11b+g Wireless LAN driver 18.104.22.168)
->drivers from here:
you need to dissable dhcp in the router and manually assign ip address as dhcp automatically changes your pc's ip address, for example if your router ip address is 192.168.0.1, then you go online with your notebook first it will get 192.168.0.2, then the next pc online will get 192.168.0.3, if you go online with the pc first it will get the 192.168.0.2 instead
First do right click on you my computer icon and choose properties ->hardware->device manager->network adapters and expand it, see your broadcom wireless is there or not, if not obtain a diver file for your model from HP support site and run it so that your wireless adapter will start working and enable the wireless on and see its working.
