Hi!

I will assume that your broadcom adapter is not showing up under Device Manager > Network Adapters. It will happen if the driver is not properly installed.

Look for "Other Devices" under Device Manager. Usually, it will show as Network Controller or Ethernet Controller. Right click that and select update driver. Make sure that you have the driver or file for that adapter. Once the driver is properly installed, it will be under Network Adapter with the correct name.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

If all looks good try right clicking on network status icon in sys tray and use repair. A more advance option would be to use ipconfig from the command prompt.

Start > Run (search in Win 7) > type ipconfig /release. Then ipconfig /renew. ipconfig ? will show you all the options. Good luck.

Download the Ethernet adapter driver from HP here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3184154&

Choose your OS
On the next screen click on Driver - Original (6)
The 5th driver down should be your Ethernet adapter driver

Of course you'll have to transport this driver to the SR1920NX machine somehow, thumb drive, CD, etc.

Usb wireless adapter for Compaq Presario 5000


Most netgear adapters will work.
They're around £20 and will connect to pretty much everything =)
They work on windows, from 98 i think. So aslong as the old tower has a sort-of up to date OS then it'll connect for you :)

Hope it helps.

WLAN device driver loading Issue


Sounds like the device driver to the wireless card is corrupt. Click on start>right click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware tab then Device manager. Click on the "+" sign next to your wireless Network adapter. Then right-click on your network adapter, click on Update driver. The system will automatically look for the new driver and download it. If there is no new driver then go to the manufactureres website. All of the drivers are there. Find your computer and download the driver.

Wlan stoped working


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
