Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I have a Broadcom Wireless Lan and it worked fine yesterday wont work today.its been like this since was asked to update drivers 2 weeks ago.
Try rolling back to the prevous driver
right click 'my computer' choose properties
in the system properties box that appears choose the 'hardware' tab
click the 'device manager' tab
locate the entry for your WLan adapter
right click on it and choose 'properties'
from the tabs choose 'driver' then choose 'roll back driver'
answer yes to the question and follow the instructions given.
This should cure your problem with any luck.
It is possible that you may have installed the wrong driver for your system. Re-Check with broadcom or your system maker for the correct driver.
generally unless you have a serious problem, there is no point updating drivers for some hardware unless it gives you extra functions like maybe on a graphics card for example.
If it aint broke, don't fix it!
Hope this helps
