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!

Hi, I have just re-loaded the Windows operating system onto my Compaq Presario 2143EA. Then I downloaded the Broadcom drivers for the wireless adapter via the HP website. However, it seems the actual...


If the adapter is present(uninstalled), it should be listed in device manager under other devices and NOT under network adapters. If you see the adapter there, right click it and click on update drivers. If you don't see the adapter even under other devices in device manager, you can restart the computer and check. If still can't see, check with a computer hardware technician who will open your computer and check if the wireless card is being provided with power and if the physical connections are ok.

For further clarifications, please revert!
Thanks for asking.

Wireless not working. the device manager not showing the wireless driver and not getting it at net......my model is c 773 tu.


Well it looks like HP left the Compaq user SOL. So looking at what they usally put in them its either an Intel or Broadcom WIFI adapater. So go to Intels support download site and download the autoscan tool. It will see its own hardware and show u a link to get the driver. If its the Broadcom driver look up Broadcom drivers on HP's website try them out 1 by 1 from models about your year of make. Here is a link I found for that laptops drivers. I waited the 20 seconds and it did produce a RAR folder to download the driver for the WIFI. Download at your own risk but it looks bug free.

I have a compaq presario F756nr with an Atheros wireless wi-fi card in it. Can I replace the wi-fi card with a Broadcom 802.11 b/g wireless LAN card?


no you cannot replace the built-in wi-fi card...
if you try to change the drivers for atheros wi-fi to Broadcam driver, your wi-fi card will not function anymore.... but you can always install another WI-FI card in your laptop... you can buy a USB Adapter or a Cardbus(PCMCIA) adapter for this purpose...if you want your wi-fi signal strenth and range to be higher, you can opt to buy an adapter which comes under N standard....N standard wi-fi adapters are capable of connecting at a speed of more than 300mbps(practically) to any N standard device like router....
